Thanks, I appreciate that.
Well, we're pretty set on reproduction wheels, which I'll probably have to buy from Coker, that look just like the original wheels but have an updated bolt pattern and can be obtained in an 8 inch rim. I may be wrong on this, but I *THINK* that Coker may offer a wheel with both bolt patters on the same wheel, so if they do, that would be a great way to go. My only regret is how expensive they are.
I'm thinking a rear end ratio in the 2.7x or 2.9x would give me the best gas mileage without straining the car around town and killing the city mileage. What are your opinions on this?
