    IMG_4338.JPG IMG_4342.JPG I bought my friends old 22 Blackhawk Daytona that he bought new. It was their Chicago Show Boat in 1994. It had these Boyd's wheels with matching Boyd steering wheel. I want to see if I could replicate the stance of the trailer as I think they got it right back then. I am going to try to keep original as Boat was one of first with a 502efi/Blackhawk. Not too many people in Kentucky care about their trailers. Help please. Thanks

    They look like 15’s to me. I had a similar setup on my 20’ Nordic cruiser. With probably 225/60-15 tires.

    I agree look like 15's. Bitchen find those Blackhawk worked really well on the Daytona from all accounts.

    really depends on your off set, if you are having rims made you can maximize your width buy getting the perfect offset. I run 15x7's with 235/60/15 tires. on my Flat and Day Cruiser. My flat has a Chevy Rally Wheel with drum brake center caps to clear the bearings and I run a ford style steelie wheel on the day cruiser. I had them built to my specs so I could fit a bigger tire both sets have different offests to fit the application.

    I finally ended up with 15" x7" Weld wheels and Michelin LT Agelis cross terrain tires. They are too close and rub but the replacement fenders are shorter in length than the originals. So where do I source the original fenders from? I will mount them to give myself enough space. Thanks

    Where did you have your rims made with a custom off set. I have been searching with no luck. Thanks
