I figure its as "flush" as im willing to get...maybe too much so. Id love for the offsets to be less aggressive so I can more comfortably squeeze tires with more of a square shoulder. I'm not really a poke & stretch kinda guy but based on what I've seen from your previous posts I think that will bother you less than my ride height when I post pics

I will probably need to get spacers for the front so that they look as aggressive/flush as the rears...may look to the oars for some help on spacer size. The fronts are 8.5ET35 and I was thinking maybe a 5mm?

This is how they looked on the car in their original color from when I first picked them up...

The front could use with a 5mm or 10mm spacer to sit nice and look good with the rear.

Pm me if you need any prices or are ready to purchase. I will be more then happy to get you a set of spacers shipped out ASAP

No problem. U actually remember when your wide got you the bbs(cause that's awesome).

For your style a nice 5mm spacer will work and look perfect for your need. Let me know when your ready I will be more then happy to help you with the spacers

Haha, yessir. Love the wife. I'll let you know when I get the wheels on & measured out so we can look at spacer options.

...the anxiety is killing me here...*fingers crossed that the paint color choice was good, otherwise, we,'re going back to silver *

6 days & counting!

A little update for you folks (pardon the crapberry pic)



They aren't 100% finished yet, still some buffing, etc. To do prior to tire mounting. All should be in my hands and hopefully on my car in time for the next cars & coffee

So I just picked them up. I'm pretty obsessive, but I'm still quite impressed by the overall work. The attention to detail makes up for the few minor blemishes. They painted the valve stems and two sets of caps (in case I lose some) to match the wheels, and even made an extra trip to the paint booth to paint the wheel weights to match during the balancing process...pricey, but good work.



Now for the mounting . It's a shame the weather is going to be crap which will probably prevent a good picture day.

Ok, so I'm thinking about bringing these back to DBK before next summer.

This is what the car looks like these days...

Any thoughts? I'm feeling like I want a change of theme, not sure why though.

I actually like the original colour better. I think black can be too heavy
