Re: torque thrust rims

Re: torque thrust rims

Those wheels and tires look very cool on your car. Can you tell me if those 8 inch tires on the front rub? My experience has been even a 15x7 on the front can give a few problems if you are not careful. Plese let me know.

Re: torque thrust rims

I don't know man. It might be the angle of those pics but are you sure those are 5.5" backspacing or rather 5.5 offset? My 17x8 fronts have 4.75" backspacing and they're under the lip.
