Hey Man, new wheel package looks great! However, the link just goes to GN / T-Type Central and no post or page in particular? So, what are the stats? Any rubbing?

Looks great!!!

I have the same wheels although I went with the 18x9s in the rear (18x8 front) with a 285/40 drag radial. No rub whatsoever.
Thanks man! How do the drag radials hook up for you?

Wheels and tires look great. What is the back spacing on both the front & rear?
I’m not sure. The owner ordered the wheels from G-body parts.
This is from another thread. It looks like the gbody site is still wrong.

I'm a bit confused as to the different backspacing.
Gbodyparts lists the 18x9 wheels as 4 1/4" backspace.

View attachment 322861
The backspacing GBody lists is not correct.

I measured them at 4-3/8, 4-5/8, and 4-3/4 (for the 8”, 9”, and 9-1/2” wheels).
