    I like them. But if I look at that picture for long enough it starts messing with my eyes

    Those work. I think I have seen either that rim, or something really close to it, on another member's car and they definitely looked good.

    they are CCW, so I get to give the dimensions to make them for me, I want 275 18 35 up front and 295 18 35 rear. so I figured to make them 18x9 and 18x10. Cause I'm just sick of tire rubs, and noise when hitting bumps. now I have 17x11 315 in the rear. I'm hoping making the rims thinner they will be less likely to rub. Any thoughts on this? was thinking of eventually doing a Strano spring and Koni or Bilstein shock set up.

    Our car is at stock height and runs the stock rim and tire size on the street. I did throw a set of Konis up front and have been really liking them so far. Sorry, I just don't know all that much about wheel and tire fitment on our cars.

    Good looking rims.

    Sizes sound good to if your not worried about hooking up in the rear. But that can always be fixed with the right tire.

    I think you just found the perfect Xmas gift to get me.

    But on a lighter note, I'm pretty sure those will look good on your car. Hell, with that color you could ride around on four donuts and still be in style.

    At first, I thought they were CCW Classics. They are nice, but $$$$. If/when you get them,

    What's the offset on your current set-up? 315 and 11" wheels fit with MINOR massaging to inner fenders correctly offset with an adj pan hard rod works all day. I currently run a 315 on an 11" wheel and spent all of 5min tweaking the inner fenders. Never rub....

    offset is 56MM, remember that different brand tires have different widths, exp Nittos run a little narrow. I think these Vredestein run a little bit wider. I've done the BFH mod, have an adjustable panhard and it only rubs occasionally when I hit a large bump, but between that and all the poly bushings it is getting annoying. . I am so ready to go back to stock bushings too.

    Lol...well aware of tire width variation. 56mm is at the end of the offset scale that is more susceptible to tire rub on an 11" wheel. I'd shoot for a 45mm offset and roll the outside fenders. Flush, clean, no rubbing....

    just not interested in rolling the quarters. I think with 10.5 or 10 inch width and 295's I wouldn't have to touch them. It's not like I ever race the thing. Here in my area if they catch you racing the city steals your car.

    I doubt you'd need to roll the quarters. As long as the rearend is center, you shouldn't have any issues.
