Our El Camino originally ran 15-inch wheels all around with its drum brakes. Unfortunately, those wheels were a no-go with the new bigger binders. Our solution was to pick up a set of wallet-friendly 17-inch Vintage Wheel Works V40 rollers and some Nitto NT555 tires (245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear). The wheels (17x8 front and 17x9.5 rear) are made from virgin 356 aluminum ingots and heat treated for strength. The tires have a 300 treadwear rating which means they will last as well as perform.
