X4 - They look great! The centers make a real nice contrast to the polished lips. Why aren't they on the car yet?

Re: Picked up my new wheels!!

What size rear tire is it? I hope those 10'' rears fit. I have 9.5'' on mine with roller fender lips and it is tight.

Re: Picked up my new wheels!!

The rear tire is a 275 but it looks like I could easily get a 285 in rear. You can run 10s in the rear just have to nail the backspacing. Once I get my new shocks mounted I am going to see exactly how much more room I have. My rear panels where modified before to accept a little larger tire. Thanks for all the kudos guys! I am really pleased with how the wheels came out.

He has a custom 9" rear end. He provided to us all his measurements, and they should work perfect.
