calling all 17 inch wheels with stock suspension... show your pics

Everyone has shown their modified suspensions, but I would like to see pics and dimensions of stock suspension cars. If it is lowered in the back an inch or two that would be fine as well..

Re: calling all 17 inch wheels with stock suspension... show your pics

Ive used 17" torq thrust ll for a fews years now, 245/45 in frontand 255/45 rear with no major problems. they rub a little on hard bumps. This year Im finally updating my suspension, but only because its time to replace the bushing other wise I would have left it alone.

Not quite stock suspension, but stock front sub (aftermarket UCA/LCA thou / rear is minitubbed):



245/45/17 front and 335/35/17 rear.

They are MB Wheels "Old School" model from Discount Tire Direct and they are chromed aluminum but they also come in black or gunmetal with machined lip a bit cheaper. When I bought them last year they were under $1000 shipped with Hankook tires mounted and balanced.

Old thread is here with dimensions and tire sizes:
