Hello Fellas, new member here in the PNW. I have had a 70 challenger for a few years now. Passed down through the family. I am a younger guy who is pretty fresh in the Mopar world and want to get involved here to try to soak up some of the knowledge. About my car, it's a 70 Challenger convertible, Plum Crazy, white interior, with a 383 Magnum in it. Thanks for having me, can't wait to fire up some questions for you guys.

:welcome: aboard. Beautiful car.
What is the age of the tires ? I know Firestone discontinued most sizes of the Indy 500 years ago and if those are over 5-6+ years old they probably should not be driven at hi-way speeds.
Check the DOT codes on the tires if you are not sure. The last 4 number of the code will give you three week and year of manufacture.
Very nice looker.

Nice catch, the pictures I posted are actually old. Since I took those pictures I’ve replaced the wheels and tires. They were definitely not safe and needed replacement before I put my family in the car.

What did you replace the Rallye Wheels with? BTW, I'm in Kennewick, the dry side.

I replaced the rallye wheels with a set of reproduction rallyes. The old set had some corrosion that was bad enough that they wouldn’t hold air anymore. And then I threw a set of BF Goodrich radials on for good measure.
