11602 gets a face lift with some Yokohama 205/50-15 ADVAN NEOVA A018-R's.

This combination weighs in at 37lbs
Wheel @ 19lbs.
Tire @ 18lbs.

Almost complete with 13046. Here is a good photo of the new wheels with 196-60R-15 on the front and 205-60R-15 on the rear on the 15" Wheels from VTO. Love them. The tires rub very slightly when I go in reverse and have the wheels turned to the stops to the right. Otherwise they are perfect

I wanted to go with larger diameter on the rear to help reduct RPM at highway speeds without having to go to the 5 speed with the 3.43:1 differential. It helps reduce RPM by about 400RPM at 70 MPH. I have a 2.2 Stroker Crank with 10:5:1 compression and Delortto 45's. Runs great, but I'm thinking seriously of going with the W58 conversion this year.

Never satisfied.

I like the way they fill up the wheel wells! The taller sidewalls have a classic look.

Were you talking about the 1973 JH Silver 13046 with the 195-60-15's front and the 205-60-15's on the rear? They definitely fill up the wheel wells and I do like the way they look.

FYI, I have the old 13" rims with 1 year old tires for sale here in Southern CA. They look great if anyone wants to see them, I will send out an email with the pic. $175 for all four tires mounted and balanced. The wheels are aluminum alloy with knock off spinners that are in very good condition. You can't beat the price.

If you want the VTO wheels to look like they came on the car, consider this...your rubber inserts on the original wheels fit nicely though the back of the VTO wheels. So you have a nice insert with the JH emblem showing...
