post pix of your 17x8 and 17x9.5 combo

I'm interested to see how even they look from the side, front and rear. I'd probably go 17x8s if the 9.5s stick out too much for my tastes..

Post away!!!

Thanks... oh, state tire size if you don't mind!

Thanks!
 
17 X 8 - 245/45/17 front, 17 X 10 - 315/35/17 on the rear. Not a lot of help on the rear (notched frame with 5-1/2" backspace) but the fronts are 4-1/2" backspace.
i had 17 X 8 on the rear with 4-1/2" bs, I wouldn't think 17 X 9 with the same bs would stick out too much at all.
hope this helps.

Gloss black, had both the ROH and the Intro wheels powder coated. I had the ROH wheels coated localy, should be someone in your area that does p-coating. You can get it done in a thousand different colors and combos including flat black. Find ya a set of wheels you like and have em coated, usualy not too expensive, around $50 per wheel tops.

I just bought my Intro Wheels through Coys, couldnt be happier! They beat everyones price by far and had good customer service. I guess everyone has different experinces though. Your wheels look nice!
