    They showed up the next day. I have a few too many projects so I have not yet test fit the rims on the vehicle. Hopefully, that will happen this weekend.

    Test fit the rims to the car this afternoon. They clear, but not a whole lot of space between the rear caliper and rim -- maybe 1/8" - 3/16". Any reason to be concerned? I'll have to remember to check the bump stop clearance once the tires are mounted. It's probably going to be a little close. I did come up short 10 of the washers so I called and left a message for Bogart. Undercarriage is still a bit grungy after the ride home in the rain from Spazapalooza:

    It's close, but I doubt they would rub unless they were bent.

    How much does a lightweight aluminum wheel flex when cornering under load??? That's the question.

    Well...that's a good question. You could do a simple test but that might result in seeing some scrapping on the inside of your rim!

    That is what I would do. That is sitting a little too close for comfort in my opinion. Better to be safe than sorry and mess up a perfectly good wheel you just purchased.

    So they are Bogart's which I thought were suppose to clear the caliper. Yet you will need to do a little grinding?

    They clear -- just not by much. I'd rather be safe than sorry on this one. The three fins (shown in picture) are the only areas I need to touch with the grinder. They don't span the width of the caliper so it'll be quick work.

    All stock except for the 12 bolt and suspension pieces.

    Cornering under load?? On a drag tire?


    They are fine. No need to grind anything.

    I should get a picture of how close my grinded calipers are to the ProStars....
    Looks like they touch.

    I had some time yesterday to get the wheels mounted and balanced. Turns out that when I finally unpacked everything I came up short ten (10) washers for the lug nuts. I called Bogart on Saturday and left a message -- the washers arrived UPS Express at my office yesterday afternoon.

    The guys at the garage were amazed at how light the wheels and tires were. I'll have to drop them on the scale and get a comparison with the stock wheels. Hopefully, I'll have time this weekend to bolt them on the car and see what they look like.
