    $125 a piece isn’t my idea of “cheap” but to each their own. i enjoy the timeless classic look

    I agree.....my wheels were $137 a piece.....I am just glad that you clarified. I thought you were talking about those idiotic bullet hole stickers that people put on their vehicles.

    inflation is a motherfucker

    I had them on an 86 Dodge when I was in high school because they were cheap and affordable for a high school kid.

    While it probably won't apply to you way down south, chrome tends to rust if ignore it in the winter. I sprayed mine down with WD40 about once a month to protect. *no car washes nearby.

    Just something you might want to note, those rims say -24 offset. Increasing the tire size and offset might result in rubbing and trimming. Also just make sure that is the stance you want.

    yeah i’m definitely looking for a wider stance, planning on trimming and beating it with a hammer and if i have to ill do a cmc. but im still unsure if they will clear the caliper in a 16” with that backspacing and offset, i’d rather not pay the extra $$ for what 17 inch tires cost

    I predict rubbing will occur. 10" wide, -24 mm offset........

    IIRC, the Sport stock 17" wheel is 7.5" wide with a +30 mm offset.

    You are pushing the tire out about 2 1/8" plus adding 3/4" to the outside of the tire.

    Good luck.
