Default New Wheels + Wax :: Wider=Better (2)

I just got the new wheels on the car Gram Lights 57C's 17x8.5 with a +40 offset on Bfgoodrich G-force 255x40x17. I have a vlimited repllica lip, but had to take it off to get an alignment. I will take new pics with the lip back on, but for now I just couldn't wait. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

How much did you pay for those wheels? I saw the forged versions for sale on a group buy @ world one for $1250! I paid more than that for my 57C's.

One of my favorite wheels. So clean.

sorry I need to take more shots which include the limited replica lip and side shots too. the offset is +40mm. I have very minimal rubbing only in the rear only with 2 ppl or more in the car and only over large bumps. I will fix that by getting a little more camber and possibly minor fender work.

thanks,
I actually got the rims used for $850 a very good price from another member on the forum, and they are in excellent condition. very happy with tire/rim combo so far, just need more work on the suspension.

If your car didn't have the yellow reflectors and the front license plate it'd look sooooo sick... Loving the width of the wheels, wide wheels make cars look SO much better in my opinion. keep it up

I removed all the orange on my old wrx then painted the housing black, but I just would hate to ruin a goos set of hid's. so I am not sure if I will take these apart or not...YET... and the plates, I think I would get a ticket or else it would be off for sure.

tnx.

I am thinking of perhaps getting the cusco lip vs. the vlimited. what do you guys think? it may be too low after that though. does the cusco lip have ne thing on the bottom to prevent it from scrapes?
