Before & After - finally got the 'maro new shoes!

Before - 17" Billet Racing Wheels, Kumho Tires

Front: 17X8, 245-17
Rear: 17X8, 255-17



After - Boss (AR) 338 Gray, Nitto NT555 EXTREME ZR

Front: 18X8, 4.517" BS, 225/40-18
Rear: 18X9.5, 5.031" BS, 275/40-18



Could not be happier with the look and fit, and came at a great price! Ordered from Summit and had a local shop mount and balance them. Then just threw them on myself.

Love the look ! Just something about a nice 5 spoke wheel on a 1st gen that seems so right.

Re: Before & After - finally got the 'maro new shoes!

LOL, sadly I wasn't brave enough to put money on my football picks. I even had the Packers winning it all in the preseason! I would have made some good cash.

Thanks for all the compliments, the fit is excellent, they tuck real nice. With the old fronts I had some rub occasionally on the inner edge of the fender well, but with this offset and the skinnier tire I haven't had any issues yet.

I'll post more pics to show fitment later, if it ever stops raining!
