Very nice!
Is it the wheel off set causing the rub?
What is the clearance like to the leaf spring and inner tub and frame?

Now that you mention it, I believe it was the offset. I've since taken them off, and replaced them with an original set of rallys with redlines so that I can drive the car without issues. I should measure the backspace, and put them back on to note the clearance at the back for future reference. Good point. Thanks

Thanks for the offer Tim,

I do have a pair of T/T here but they have holes for the valve stems drilled towards the center of the rim, and the tubes for the slicks have the valve stem offset toward the outer edge of the rim. I'm either going to use a set of black steelies or perhaps drill new holes in the T/T rims and mount these up.

I'll get to those one of these days...
