Nice looking car! I need to get some clear corners. Chrome or polished?

I see you changed between the cobra head and the dome centers, which ones did you end up with (which ones do you have on it now)? I went with the domes even though they come close to sticking out further than the rim edge. I tried (and failed) to get some Cougar centers, but they are the wrong size.

I would love to have 17x10 in the rear. 17x9 in the front on mine is the limit, but I need to put spacers in the rear to get the wheels closer to the fender. I really need to get them in 18x9, I should have taken the leap the first time.

I've got 17x7.5's in front with 255/50' on them. They are VERY close to the spindle.

Of course offset would make all the difference in the world however.

I can beat that. I've got 255/50/17's on 7.5" wheels and when I first put them on I couldn't fit a quarter between the tire and the vertical bolt coming down out of the upper control arm (what is that bolt called? Its not the ball joint itself, it hangs below the ball joint). At any rate, we had to "trim" it back a some to get the required clearance.

I see that it's only $50 now.

It must have ended in the last week or so.
Glad I got mine in time!

Also considered the General Exclaim but read too many reviews that said the handing wasn't very good.

P.s.

Thanks GODSPEED for the nice comment on the wheels.

I really like the BBS in that style but $$$ and I like the lip on the Voxx better.

Yeah, for that price you cant be beat. BBS aren't worth the money IMO. I paid $185 a wheel for my fondmetals back on '04. Can't wait to see those on your car, what color is it?

Godspeed

'96 Sport Graphite Night Mist.

My '92 Sport was that light blue metalic. This color took a little getting used to.




I'll post pics on the car when the wheels come in.
