Re: new wheels

Not sure what it is but the wheels have a vintage look about them like they belong on the car... I can see the rear tires are 275/40/18 but what are the rest of the wheel and tire sizes?

Re: new wheels

Thanks alot
they are 245/45/17 in the front
17x8's
18x10's in the rear
I didnt have to cut bend or hammer anything to make these wheels fit. They are the first run of the Apex G's in 18 inch size's billet specialties makes
put 2 inch lower springs on the front and didn't have to cut them either and 1 inch blocks on the rear. Everything went very easy on the job. I guess i got lucky I didn't even measure the offset for the rear before I ordered them.
Now I have to figure out the steering box on here, it's to quick

Re: new wheels

Very nice! They have a vintage look to them which means you won't get tired of them any time soon. The gray centers look real good and go great with the color of the car.

Thumbs up Very nice...!

As been mentioned,they have a nice retro-vintage look to them and they are different,which is two big pluses in my book.Plus,I love the grey centers...excellent choice on your part.

Re: new wheels

I like the stance and the wheels, but now it needs bigger brakes.
