    That thing really hooks up well!

    One problem with the stock rims (15x7) on an old dinosaur like my Trans-Am is they can't deal with any serious power. My 455 probably makes around 320 hp (hey, that was a big number when I built the thing back in the late '90s!) which is much less than the Mustang, but I can't even use that. Anything more than about half throttle off the line just smokes the tires. I have to be careful on the 1-2 shift, also, because the back end will literally break loose, sometimes getting sideways. It is very easy to lose control in one of these things if you aren't used to them and know how to handle them!
