Quick wheel question

Other than the lug pattern wheel these wheels fit our cars without hitting the spindle ect..
Thanks for your input.

They won't hit the spindle but with 0 offset your car will look like this with them

Thanks Matt, I always appreciate your input. Yikes ! I see that 0 offset now.
I was looking for somthing like on this one, http://www.tccoa.com/events/local/so...a_Johns_94.jpg

But in a Soft 8 insted of a "D" hole and in a 16x7 or 8. I'm throwing different builds around in my head, not NASCAR themed but way different from my other idea.

The solution is clearly these wheels + box flares.
I'd consider this for my tbird but the car barely fits into my 1-car garage in SF already. Any wider and I couldn't fit it it inside

You might talk to Mike Puckett over at SCCOA. He just installed a pair of Diamond Racing wheels on his SC that look similar but fit correctly.

Man, those are both... uh.. Special, each in their own way.

In a "Kill it, Kill it" or "AiEEEEE! my Eyes" kinda way...

You might see if there's an option on the offset.

I found a 16x8 with 5" of backspace and +13mm offset I believe those may look ok.
