    How did you get those for so cheap? Are they just the rear?

    Well, they don't fit. I am gonna have to do some work to get em' to fit!!

    I notice that the bump stop is gonna hit the tire when the suspension is unloaded.

    Also, I am gonna have to put my spring cushions back in on top of my SLP springs. I hope that the suspension will not compress to much cause the tire will rub on the fender.

    This may be due to the Vredesteins being slightly balloned?

    Try jacking it up at the pumpkin instead of a body point. I heard you have to do this with 17x11's to get around the bumpstop because if you jack at a body point the suspension hangs.

    UPDATE I installed the wheels. I had to hammer in the inner fender just a little. Also, I had to grind the jounce bumper quiet a bit! I have SLP lowering springs, so I stuck the rubber spring spacer back in. It sits a little higher than I like, but the tire does not come even close to hitting the fender lip.

    I took it for a ride to see how it handled but the roads are damp and covered in salt which is very slippery. But I did notice that she takes turns more flat with less roll. Acceleration is a bit better with the wider meats in contact with the road surfuce, but its not possible to judge them under these conditions.

    On another note, I was concerned about rocks getting picked up by the tread and flinging them all over the paint since the wheels stick out so much. This is not an issue with the Vredestein tread pattern.

    I will get pics up in about a week since it is supposed to rain for the next couple of days~
