Those are super nice.
I don't think I could pull off that wheel size, 9.5. I could do like an 8.5 or 9.

Looks really good! What did you have to do to get them to fit? I'm in the market for new wheels now but I want 17's and something in 5x114. I noticed I have less options in that size if I want them 9" wide or wider.

Yes. because I helped do the install on these and know what everything is set at. He is also probably on his phone so it takes him a while to respond. Got a problem with it?

Yeah. Thats because most people do it backwards, youre supposed to have more in the front. We just pulled his rear fenders out like 10mm. Has alittle rubbing still where the rear fender meets the bumper. So we need to hammer it more.

Now that you've spent plenty to get those wheels set up, now you can spend $5 on a can of silver paint for that lip.

I had to roll and pull the fenders, and run a bunch of camber. We pulled the rear fenders out around 10mm. Im going to have to raise the car up just a hair. I need to get an alignment, but like brody said, i think its around 3-3.5* in the front and 2ish in the rear. 5x114 should have some good options for wide wheels
