    Very nice love that stance do you have a side view so I could see how full the wheel figment is looks like it might be the size I want for rims

    Il tell you this much, 18x9 +40 will not work up front

    Time to revive an old thread:

    hey @jetas what do you think about 17x7.5 +42 but on a 1” spacer? I’m looking at wheels that are 5x110 and would run a 1” adaptor to 5x114.3

    Probably wont be too bad. If I'm doing the math right, your adapter will move the barrel out to where its closer to what would be a +17ish offset.

    That’s my thought, just hoping I can avoid fender rolling and such. I’ll be dropping on mighty max springs like my 74 was, but thinking to possibly add a leaf and de-arch for the rear to get spring rate right, my 74 hit bump stop too easily with stock springs and blocks
