20. The crowning jewels of the project were the new wheels, one of the areas we felt shouldn't be compromised. Vintage Wheel Works produces classically styled wheels in traditional and contemporary sizes; we selected a set of Vintage 45s in 17x8 and 17x9.5. To wrap the rims we went to Toyo to try out its new Proxes T1S high-performance street rubber (P255/45R17 and P275/40R17). The guys at Flip's Tire took their usual care while mounting our gems.
