I think 20's and 22's look good on some of the old muscle cars, I like that trend, it just isn't for the T-bird.

No, It looks like sh!t. I know I've got flamed for pointing out this before bt It all depends on the style of the wheel along with the size. Given I have an 84, the biggest I will go is a 17. On a Mn-12 I would probaly go up to a 19 MAX. 26 is all about what you can afford, not what it looks like.

I agree but they do look very strange on it.......24+ is way to big for a car. Most I'd go on a few cars is 22" but usually nothing over 20".

Even then only up to a point. Bigger than 24" makes the trucks/SUVs look like those caricature Muscle Machines

too friggin big!!!!! 20's are the biggest anybody should ever attempted on a mn12.......i myself would only go w/ 17's because they look nice and tires won't send you into bankruptcy....BTW.... anybody notice you can get a 17" tire cheaper than a 16" tire of the exact same specs?

He just needs a push bar, 44's, and some nerf bars. Scary to think that thing is driving on the road.

Wonder how the bearings, spindles, axels, cv joints, and breaks hold up to all that extra weight and stress? I'd like to see some suspension shots to see how they lift those with independant front and rear.

The guest book ought to be X rated for all the language.

97 T-Bird Sport: Dynomax catback, Removed silencer w/ K&N panel, DReinhart chip, Lightning AGSF12-FM1 plugs/180 stat, Tokico 1.25" dropped stance, bye bye fender gap

'79 F100 SB : 300 ci six, Hurst Mastershift 3spd floor shifter, Offenhauser intake, Holley 4 brrl, EFI manifolds, Chebbie Rockers, Summit Racing 3.50 gearset, DISO 2.5" diesel muffler and 2.5" exhaust, Its'a six?!

I'd be afraid to drive it incase the brakes went out or something broke; I've got 20's and it slowed my car down a little bit........couldn't even think of how 26's would drive. 20's are just right in my opinion.....anything over that is overkill & a lot of money wasted (once again my opinion)

Your right ThunderB - that guestbook should be X rated due to language
