Picked up a little piece of Hot Rods by Boyd history over the weekend. This 1986 Aerostar panel van was bought by my dad around 1991. It was a bare bones, stick shift delivery van. Like most vehicles that came to the shop it wasn’t long before my dad transformed it. Along with the paint job my dad decided to put a supercoupe supercharged motor under the hood. I had fond memories driving this guy around town when I was right out of high school. The interior is just like the day it was put in, the motor runs really strong, the paint has some issues that we’re going to have to work out. Nice little project for us to get back on the road as our new delivery van.

Two very important measurements that need to be taken into consideration when building custom wheels and getting the proper fit for your vehicle are rim width and backspacing or offset. Measuring the rim width is done by measuring bead to bead. This will give you the true width. Measuring edge to edge will not give you an accurate measurement and will cause problems for you when figuring out offset and how big of a wheel you can fit on your vehicle. Keeping that in mind remember that every wheel will measure an extra inch edge to edge(+ or -)so if your figuring out if an 8″ wide wheel will fit on your vehicle you need to be taking into consideration an overall width of 9″. The next important measurement is backspace. This is the distance from the backside edge of the wheel down to the mounting surface on the wheel. Knowing how to take these measurements properly will help you and Hot Rods by Boyd get the right fitment on your vehicle. Below are pictures of how to take both measurements. Never hesitate to email or call if you have any questions.
