The pictures don't really show the rims very well. I'm not a fan of the jacked up look I like mine tucked.

What are the weight of those wheels? One thing I am really researching is weight savings I can do without really sacrificing any driveability etc.

I like bigger tires. The wheels look good but there's too much room around the tire in the wheel well. My favorite tire size combo on a bone stock '68-'72 Chevelle is 275/60R15 in the back and 225/70R15 in the front. The height is the same front to rear, just the front tire is narrower.

Like the looks of that stance and tires earthquake68. Maybe I need to change my 70 series rears for 60 series. Also using 225/70/15's up front on 7'' ralley wheels. 8'' ralley wheels on rear, disc brake center caps on all four.
