I'm building a Nostalgia Super Stock Plymouth similar to this one.

What wheel & tire combination would be the best to capture this look? The chassis is from the Lindberg 1964 Dodge, and the body is a Jo-Han 1963 Plymouth Fury. I don't want to tub it out, but I do want this stance.

 

Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

I really like the tires that come in the Lindberg Super Stock kits. Which Lindberg '64 Dodge do you have?

The one that came with the slant six. Just skinnies and dog dishes in the box.

You need to just forget that kit and get one of these. http://www.ebay.com/...=item485bdd5447  If you have the whole kit, you may find someone that would be willing to do a trade with you.

I was going to buy the wheels from Futurattraction, but according to his shopping cart, they are no longer available. :(

So are you doing a replica of that particular car as it is in those pictures? Or are you building a car "That could have raced back in...."?

 

If you're building a straight replica, the Lindberg '64 Dodge 330 kit's tires are a good choice. They have Good Year lettering on their sides, though. But if you want to build a car that could have raced in 1964, for example, you'll need tires from the Speed City Resins. They are 7" Cheater Slicks, the only tires that were legal in Super Stock back in the day.

Thanks for the input guys, like I said, it's gonna be like the car and it will be for the Nostalgia Super Stock Class. Steve contacted me and says the tires/wheels are on the way. :)

This will be an interesting build for sure. Keep us posted.

I looked in my stash, and I had a Maverick Dodge kit. The slicks in the Maverick kit are more modern than the cheater slicks you posted.
