Even with my new suspension and 17x9" wheels I added one spacer to each real wheel to ensure a symmetric fore and aft look.

I hate to tell you, but Chinese Wheels are nothing but trouble.

3/4 of the foxes left are on them . Half the wheels everyone has on even regular cars are made there too unless you have like forgeline , fiske, ccw money etc

I know, it's sad. I actually have original Eagle Alloys on my car. I just got a line on some original Ford equipment 17"x9" gray Cobra Rs this week. Those are worth their weight in gold, but nobody knows the difference. I'm not putting my life on the line for a set of wheels that crack because they are made out of pot metal.

You don't live in Wayne County Michigan; you don't know what bad roads are. The problem is, I know those OEM Cobra R wheels are easily worth $220/each, and I was offered a set for $400. I just don't think anyone will know the difference between quality wheels and what American Muscle is peddling for $400/set.

255/40/17 front
315/30/17 rear

SC Reps. 17x8 front / 17x10 rear

ARP studs with a 1/2” Baer spacer. Bilstein quads. VERY tight tolerances but all fits. Have QA1’s set pretty high so she doesn’t move much. No rub unless a really big dip with wife and daughter in car. Then it’s ever so slight. But I LOVE the way it looks, so I just deal.

Speaking of bad New York roads:
Took a run to Six Flags yesterday. Was pleasantly surprised at Belt Parkway. Nice to see they finally fixed the minefield it used to be. Hadn’t driven that way in many years.
