these wheels are gonna need some HUGE spacers tho.. super concave, but they appear to have thin back pads.. more super car styling i guess, for real widebody cars lol.
they dont rock negative offsets.
Will be quite the contrast to a lipped wheel.. and they only cost about as much as Vossens.. dunno.. wont be sure until the body comes along more.

spacers just like benspora GTRs> 6k wheels that I cant afford, could never sell since no one else will ever be able to fit ..w tires that cost as much as the wheels..

no thanks lol.. as soon as i pick upa tire sponsor, i plan to burn them out on the regular lol.

bagged w camber, these tires are going to disappear fast.. and you cant see them under the car anymore anyways lol. No need to even push a 325...

lol.. this is my luck.

the fenders look pretty sitting there, but.. daymn.. they did get yanked out of th emold too quick.. and they are going to need some MAJOR work to get them to fit.. and to get them blended up w a stock/ish bumper.

they actually go up OVER the side of the headlights, not beside them like usual.. so this makes it a bit fun to get this blended up to the bumper.

Im going to enlist the help of professionals.. and just pay to get this knocked out.. im honestly getting tired of having it apart and not on the street.. imagine that. lol

The fender goes up over the edge of the headlight .. thats where the trouble is going to be tbh... i imagine we will ahave to do away w much of that and reshape that area.

I think you might have found a new interior item to sell people. I'm loving that gauge cover!

so.. i talked ot dude again today.. depedning on total cost, i may have him jump on the bumper DRL holes now.. ie like the rocket bunny cars bumper.. I already have the CREE DRLs in hand... Switchback to amber and white as DRLs.


Also think we will add 2 inches of heigth to the wing by making sandwich/spacers that can be removed if need be..

SHould be fun.. the car is getting very one of a kind very quickly.
