Damn.. that picture keeps popping up.

Those were 17x9.5 Torque Thrust 2's. I had to swap hubs and such to fit those.

They were on the car for roughly 18 months before someone decided they wanted them, the complete interior and misc other parts.

Aside from them sticking out past the fender edge on the front, they looked pretty good.

cudaz101,
I'll get in touch with you when i am ready for the wheels... i def want to get my car painted and some new rims by the summer time so i can enjoy em... Not sure what rating i want for tires yet... lol b/c i dont exatly know a lot about tires... plus not sure what size tires will fit with 17's... right now i have 235/70R15 on my stock rims the freeking huge but the white letters makes them seem a bit smaller, lol the ride is nice though... def saving them for the winer when i get new rims thats for sure...

Tire Size....This is VERY Debatalbe...IMO it all depends on if you do or don't lower the car...If you are not lowered then the 245 or 255-50-17 would be OK to fill the wheels wells...If you are lowered then I like the 255-45-17's all the way around...I like to be able to rotate my tires so this size seemed to be the best fitment for front and rear and was big enuf to fill the wheel wells...

Performance ratings is all about what you want to do with the car....If you want your tires to last, and you want decent performance you can find some really nice H-Rated tires for less money and longer wear...This is the way I went and I am a performance freak, but I hate having to buy tires all of the time...So the trade off was really a simple choice for me...And I am still happy with the performance of the tire not to mention cost and tread wear...

Hope that helps...

Yes that definatly helps thanx... my car isnt lowered, not sure if i am gonna lower it yet... so i think the 245 or 255 - 50 - 17 will work nice with my car... one question, if i lowered my lx to the hight of a stock sc... b/c i believe the sc is lower... will that effect this tire size?

I don't think that there is much differance in the ride height of the SC vs LX...I would say that the appearance that it sits lower would be the ground effects on the SC accomplishing that...

If you do lower your car 1.5-2.0" then you may have issues with those tires...I think there are some guys lowered running them though...I still like the 255-45-17's on a lowered car...But hey it all comes down to what ya like...As long as it don't rub and ya fancy the way it looks then its all good...

Keith,
I don't have any up close pics, and I have the wheel set in storage until spring unless I decide to run my 19's that early...haha...I can get you a set of those centers if you have problems finding some. Lemme know.

The ones I have have Bullet etched in them with the cone shape. They have held up nice in the 3 years I have had them.

I just bought some 18's and I went with the 255-45-18's $123 a tire, Kumho ASX's on tirerack.com...cant beat that!!! I think that some birds have a minimal ammount of rubbing at a FULL turn, but it's nothing to worry about. Most work without incedent. Anyway good luck man

this is before lowering.....



this is after lowering....



the problem is that after i installed the rear spring with new poly isolator it jack the rear up than stocker. when i lowered my old 94 with eibach prokit without changing the isolator the rear drop is nice. but on this 96 i change out the isolator hence the jack up look. been thinking buying oem rubber isolator to swap it out.

non lowered....



lowered.....
