    I don't have one on a t/a but I wish I would've gotten the y2k deep dish replica's. I think they're beautiful on a bird.

    the wheels id like to buy tonight have a offset of +56mm and backspacing of 7.4". what is the offset of my stock ws6 wheels? ive looked around and could only find one place that said and it said the offset was 50mm of the stock wheels. i just want to know if thats right or not, because if so the +56mm offset wheels will stick out further, correct??? and if thats right then i could possibly have to roll the quarters right? which is ok cuz my buddy just bought an eastwood fender roller! so any input before i buy these wheels would be aweeeesooooome! thanks again!

    rubber mallet mod, just bang the wheel well wall inward. its a very common mod, no need to deal with rolling fenders and all that bs

    basically my plan is to just buy wheels for now since my tires are fairly new and just swap over the tires 275/40/17. now im just not sure if i will have any clearance issues. they say these wheels will fit, i just dont want to get them and go to put them on and have it rub anywhere, but if i have to roll the quarters i will. after i get these wheels im planning to get the slp shocks/springs lowering kit. and then i will have to worry about rubbing issues again. but hopfully i wont since im staying with the stock 17 inch size wheel. im not too good with all this offset and backspacing stuff....

    If you wanted to run 315's you should have ordered 17 x 11's out back. Lots of guys on this sight have them staggered like that. I personally chose to go with 17 x 9.5 up front and 18 x 10.5 out back. I love the look and am very happy with my choice.
