    tt II's in 17" are 9.5 and 11, tt m"s are 9 and 10.5. i have seen tt II's with the spokes painted or powdercoated, depends how much $ youre looking to spend. a 1/2" extra room in the back would help clearance but some dont like the look of the tt m's. you might want to plan ahead if youre doing red calipers on a red car, if you use the wrong shade it might clash like crazy [if that matters]. thats the fashion tip of the day.

    you got ahead while i was typing. i have seen pictures come up on web sites that show the shelby center caps but im pretty sure they actually only come on the wheels with the mustang bolt pattern and offsets, for camaro they have american racing centers. if you find a good deal i would ask for sure.

    yeah i found them at a local shop here in my town for 145 a piece i think....thats the cheapest ive found. The thing i like better on the M's is the lip, its different then the TTII's if you look real close.

    yeah the m's are one flat lip, II's are two steps. i got the m's so i didnt have to spend time on that polished aluminum, its enough trying to keep the bike and the car clean, i didnt need that yet. and mine came with american racing caps.

    exactly...i think the flat lip looks better let alone the ease of cleaning compared to the TT IIs with that double step lip..

    45mm offset/6.89" back spacing front, 44mm/7.55" rear. thats 9" and 10.5" x 17" respectively. if i remember right, for our cars' bolt pattern they only offered with this offset/back spacing. havent mounted mine yet, i thought id do it all at once: umi 3 point sfc's, alca's, spohn aphr, f+r sway bars, kyb shocks. i took tire racks' advice on fitment of tires before i found this site and ended up with 245/45 and 275/40 tires. wee'll see how they look.
