    **** NEW PICS ON PAGE 2 ****






    Well I got half of them anyway, I got the fronts 17x9s, the rears 17x10s are on backorder and im still looking for some 285/40s.


    I have one question about them to, anybody have a problem with the center caps not fitting, the dust caps pushed them off when I test fit a wheel today. I think I might run a very thin spacer, maybe 1/8th of an inch because my finger barley fit between the rim and strut also. I'm going to hopefully get the tires mounted tomorrow, then I'll post more pics.

    They look great. I can't wait to get mine as well. I ordered a set about a month ago and I am picking them up on April 5th. I already have the front tires and just ended up buying a set of BFG 275 drag radials for the back. Do you know when you will be getting your rears in?

    If you gotta run spacers, get hubcentrics and upgrade the studs

    Ohh man your never guess what happened today, it made me ****ed. Well first I went to Sears to get one tire mounted on a rim for test fit, it looked awesome.

    Except they hit the very corner of the front fender about halfway to lock, turning the steering wheel. I hoping I can just trim the corner off anybody ever have the same problem?

    Then I went to get my other front mounted at sears and as soon as I inspect it after they rolled it out, I got ****ed :mad: there was a foot long scratch on the outer lip.

    So I had to run home and get my receipt so they would pay for me to get a new one. They payed me in cash which was nice, so now i have to order another front wheel, but I did get my old wheel back from them, so I'm going to use it as a spare or just use it as decoration.

    :mad:

    I dont think Ill be going to sears again

    O and I found out I dont need spacers

    Good luck on the 17x9's up front, must be a green car problem becuase I run 03 Cobra wheels on my car and they rub bad on full lock turns. They hit the fender just like yours do, and I have stock springs still.

    I was actually going to make a thread about it in Tech to see if someone had some ideas or opinions on something I'm not thinking through. I'm considering selling my wheels and getting some 8" wheel becuase the problem is annoying. Good luck, if you figure out something please let me know.

    Love the wheels. I've been thinking about them myself in silver though. Can't decide on 17x8 or 17x9 up front. I think the 17x8's look too flat.

    I had the 17x9's up front but too much rubbing so I went to 17x8's. I have 245/45 up front and no rubbing issues with h&r sports.
