The 9's will prolly fit perfect if you have the hub swap...

I had to do a LOT of calculating when I got mine... 9" with hub swap, 8" without...

I rolled my fender lips and she squeezes by perfect!

i like when the wheels stick out a little.

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

i decided to not get them, so here they are. they are fox saleen replicas. i believe they are also referred to as sterns. i didnt put tires on them cuz i would have to buy them first. if those came in the 05+ offsets, i would have been on those like stink on chit.

17x9's. the wood was to try to get the wheel up to ride height. there's plenty of spindle and pbr caliper clearance.




17x10s. leave my drums alone




17x9s out back.




entire car

the fronts stick out too much for my tastes. the 9's out back are pushing it, as well.

The floor jack has a flat spot on the part that touches the vehicle. It will mess (jack) the car up. Move it under the lower control arms or where the body bolts to the rear assembly.

I;ve had my eye on those wheels when they first came out not that long ago. I really like that design and the lip looks fantastic. What were the offset on those wheels above? Thanks
