All I can say is DAMN!!!! Those are seriously tucked under there...I think it looks pretty good. I wouldn't personally go that route on my bird, but like I said, not too shabby looking!

pulled it off

havn't pulled it off yet. that pic was only a test fit. still waiting to get all 4 on. and to mount them on the car requires some "modification" to the spindle... at least in the front. ill post better pics when they are all on

turning

usually to turn i just turn the steering wheel to the left or right. works out pretty good for me

I do not drive the car that low, i raise it when im driving... well i raise the front, and slam the back... lol

car turns lock to lock with the 22 on there, without issues

the wheels are 22x8.5 with a fwd offset. they are no wider than my 20s. and my 20s had no issue either. oh, i dont have those plastic inner fenders, took them out when i bagged the car.

why is it so hard to beleive?

It's just hard to believe there is enough room for lock to lock and no issues,, not saying anything is wrong with your statement, I even went out and looked at my bird and it does not look like there is that much room.. Without the water shields I guess it could happen though.. Do you have any trouble with water on rainy days?

You will have to forgive me, I just like stock... Sorry

Well at least it's bagged and not a "donk" set up.

Hell i like it. it's different, and some people here are having a hard time believing that it doesn't rub. If your causing that much controversy your probably doing something worth mentioning. *thumbs up

Whatever you do...don't leave rusty calipers and brake rotors in there. It seems that most low riden birds have all this money into shiny dubs and leave the rusty brakes in the wheel-well. Chrome + Rust = Goofy $#!+

Well first, to address the rubbing issue. I didnt mean to sound like i had attitude... There is not alot of room at all... in fact i am within a 1/4" of rubbing at full turn. and i dont drive the car on rainy days, so i havn't noticed a problem not having my splash guards in ...lol and hey, nothing wrong with stock. not my cup of tea, but i respect a good clean stock car as much as any modified one.

and as far as brakes im gonna be doing the mustang brake conversion in the near future. put something alot bigger up front. someone sudgeststed pbr 13" rotors up front...
