wheels
#1
Ok guys one more time, as most of you know with my brake conversion kit I cant run stock 15 in wheels. So what do you think of these. Rears will be 18x9.5 fronts 17x7 or 17x8, and by the way I put a set on it with the billet/polished lip and black center, and with my paint it just looked bad.

Agreed the black doesn't cut it..& it's played out, everybody & their daddy has the black centers...I LIKE THOSE A LOT !!! I not sure why you want to do the 17 in the front though ? If you think about it ..the 18 is only a 1/2" larger (1" divided by 2 --around the circumference of the rim) If you do the 17 in the front be careful with tire size... too small & it's not gonna look right..too big it also isn't gonna look right...in other words it's gonna be tricky to get the right proportions back to front. So when are they coming ?

I once found a pic of one with 24s on it, it looked ridiculous, I will see if I can find it. lol.


I plan on going 18s rear and 17s front also.
