my sick but cool ideal sleeper mod delux

I had a sick ideal the other day and wonder if anybody has done it. The stock cheepie tbird wheels were 15x6 wide steel wheels with hub caps and 205 75 15 tires. My ideal is to have the wheels widended to 15x8 or 8.5 and run a 255 60 15 tire with stock hubcaps. A 245 60 15 tire could be used on a 15x8 wheel.

or you could find some steel wheels that are already 15x8.

o' i am getting tires of people not trying stuff on their own, blown it has been done to a stock size wheel running 255 and 245, i had them on my 95 cougar 255 in rear and 245 in front, i had if i remember bf goodrich t/a's, some will say NO, you cant run that big of a tire, but guess again, "DONT KNOCK IT TILL YOU TRY IT" what i did blown was i went to a used tire shop and ask if i could try a tire size and he said sure, a charge of 5 bucks for install, and i had it lowered, no rubbing whats so ever,
