New wheels on the way.... 15x9 -0 in the rear, 15x8 -10 in the front. Im alive, just staying under the radar. The car is now going to get the attention it deserves as my condo is now just about finished.

Definitely CR.net sizing and I really dont care. This car is going to look good. Period. Itll drive just fine and it will never see the light of day on any kind of track.

Remember when I rocked this setup years and years ago?


It handled like poo. Oh well, looks like you're infected with the CR.net cancer and nothing will change your mind.
Good luck

If its that bad, I have zero qualms about selling them and going back to my regular setup not to mention ill have zero issue getting more for them than I paid.

They were probably worse than what you'll be running because not only width, but diameter also was staggered. 15x7 front 16x8 rear

It was SOOO nervous and unstable. Its hard to describe the feeling, but really REALLY bad

Ok so since my front bumper was destroyed while smacking a tire fragment on the highway, I decided to graft or at least attempt to graft this bumper to mine. Itll take me a while but Im pretty confident I can pull this off well. I got the bumper for next to nothing other then shipping so when It gets here, Ill take some pics and show you ladies just how I intend to go about doing this.
