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.

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.

I have 17x7 on the front 4.50 back spacing and 17x9.5 on the back and the back spacing is 4.75 They don't stick out at all and I think I want to change the rear to 4.50 backspacing. I have 1/2 spacers but have to replace the studs to do it. Any problem doing that?
Also how do I put Pictures on this site?
