Love the way those look on the car. I'm currently rolling on some 15" Crome Cragar SS wheels the previous owner put on. They look alright, but don't really go with the straight lines of the Monte. Hoping to swap them out for the N90s eventually. Just a couple quick questions for you. Are you using any wheel spacers on the rear? Is that the stock ride height, or have you lowered it?

No wheel spacers, I bought some expecting that I needed them, but the Nitto 275 tires cleared fine. I haven't driven the car except around the block after bolting the wheels up and didn't see/hear/feel any rubbing. When I get back in town tomorrow I hope to put a few miles on the car to make sure nothing is rubbing. The previous owner put a complete Level 2 BMR suspension on it. Not sure how much it lowered it, but it is lowered.

Pics from behind please. I would buy some of those if I knew 275 would fit on the rim. I know they will fit inside my frame rails but wasn’t sure on the rims.

Is the frame on your monte notched? I'm going to end up getting N90s, but I'm nervous about putting 275s in the rear

Those wheels/tires look perfect! hail
The wheel backspace and tire width are perfect for the rear, I have a similar size.
if you ever have trouble with tire rub on one side, you can replace the rear UCA with some adjustable ones, a slight adjustment will swing the axle left/right.

Looking at getting the exact same size tires on mine. Is yours lowered at all? Mine is lowered 1 inch all around if I remember correctly. Think I will have any issues with fitment?

Yes, mine is lowered, but not sure how much. Should fit fine, I didn't have to use any spacers.

I find it simple, it goes really well with this classic car. It reminds me a 5-spoke wheel that I saw on 4wheelonline a few years ago.

I don't ever get tired of looking at those on SSs. When I get another one, that will be one of the first things I do. Currently have a 78 Trans Am with the 17" Year One Snowflakes. Like the N90s, they were a night and day difference over the 15. Love the stance on your SS as well!!!
