Default Got 'em!!

I finally got my wheels in and put on! Man, do they look great! Centerline "Softtail" 17 x 7", 5" backspacing on the rear, 3.5" backspacing on the front.

It took a lot of figuring and measuring to get the right set up to fit behind the skirts, but it paid off!

I really prefer the skirts on....

Close up.....

Randy the lines look great with the rims and yes I would agree
it looks better with the skirts on. Is that a Min Cooper S, in the picture yellow on the street?? A buddy of mine British here in Calgary has one here and man do those things fly.

It looks sharp with those wheels and skirts. It looks like a giant "Hot Wheels."

Thanks folks!

I looked long and hard for just the right set of wheels. I knew I wanted 5 spoke, kind of vintage looking, but a little different. I also needed custom backspacing; Center Line was easy to deal with, they did not charge anything extra for custom backspacing, and I got the wheels about 2 1/2 weeks after I ordered them.

The tires are 235/45R17 Yokohamas, and they seem to drive and ride nicely.
