Wheels and tires became one of our big concerns with this project. We knew that the rears would be downsized to 15s, but there isn’t a 15-inch front-runner on the planet that will clear the big six-piston Wilwood binders on our Pony’s front end. Race Star Industries’ 92 Drag Star front wheels (17x4.5-inch, available through Latemodel Restoration Supply) make brake-caliper clearance a non-issue. When paired with M&H Tires’ Racemaster 26x4.5x17-inch front-runner/skinny front tires (DOT certified, available through Summit Racing Equipment), all the bases are neatly covered.
