Post up your wheel & tire spec's along with a picture!

It would be nice to have one thread with a whole lot of different pictures of cars on this site to help people when choosing what wheels they would decide to buy.

1. post the pic
2. Wheel brand
3. Wheel size & tire size
4. Backspacing
5. Any clearance issues

Re: post up your pictures!

There are quite a few threads already over the years but yes it would be nice to just have that info and pics then make it a sticky in wheels/tires.
A/R Ansen sprints
17x7 with 4" BS and BFG 225/45R17's up front and
17x8 with 4 1/2" BS and Mickey Thompson DR 275/40R17's out back
The front has 2" Hotchkis drop springs. The rear is stock mono leaf.




I've dropped the rear down sense this picture. It had long shackles when I got it, but haven't had a chance to roll her out and shoot another yet. I'd still like a taller tire in the rear, but haven't found a larger 17" drag radial yet.

Re: post up your pictures!

If this gets enough replies and good information I'll see about making it a sticky. Let's see how it goes first.
