and another couple pics of the green car.

As awesome as these flares are, after seeing the additional rear angles of this car .... I believe the factory GT flares still hold the top spot in flare design. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Another wheel/tire combo for visual reference.

Fuchs replica wheels: 7" front & 8" rear x 16" Dia.
verified tire sizes are: 225/50-16 front & 245/45-16 rear

IMO front tires look too big, probably should have went with 225/45-16 in front.
or possibly better yet 205/50-16 front and 225/50-16 rear that will reduce the unsprung weight a bit. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

So far I’m the only 7X16 front 9X16 rear. My rears are actually custom built Weidman 8.5X16 but that isn’t a poll choice. My reason for going with these is tire option availability and the fact that it perfectly fills the wheel well in the rear.


What's with the smoke screen? Great looking car.



Diesel powered?

Is this a painted or bead blasted finish on these wheels? Did you remove the annodized finish first?

Those are Weidman Wheels. Harvey's special recipe.

More flares and fuchs! This car sits a bit high IMO. Wheels appear to be 8s X 16" all the way around.

RE: the car above, is it just me (or the pics) or do those flares look like they were installed a bit too far rearward. The wheels don't look centered...
