They are SSR formula mesh made in japan, really light weight these weigh like 12-13 lbs each. but ya the 2000's ford crown vics and lincoln mark8 have a similar looking wheel, but those are one piece 16x8 0 or 5 offset i think.

Really will



The 14b I rebuilt went out so,

I just picked up a real mits small 16g, like new no shaft play.
reused my 14b ported turbine and o2 housing
gonna port the 7cm one later, hoping for little quicker spool since this will be my daily.











The handling with the 15" inch wheels really sucked the car just felt soft.
The evo suspension didnt work well and handling was just off.
so I picked these up

ya C2's ,right now there 17x7 Im gonna widen them to 17x8 25-30 offset.
Two have pretty beat-up lips, so I ordered some bigger one's from the stanceworks forums.
gonna go from 1" to 2" lips and then fully polish the faces.

That's a nice fitment. What did the offset end up being on the 17x8?

Finally did the heater core last weekend, its always had a slight leak but lately the "sweet smell" was getting bad.
then the first cold morning of the year windshield fogged I have always has a small fog patch above cluster that seamed out of place, it's becouse where the heater core is in these cars. its in the dead center of the dash.
Im a pretty handy guy and just did the one in my truck, only took 2 hrs.
so I gave it a go, started friday night,
step one removed dash 2-3 hrs.




removed the dash support ya the heater core is in that box dead center.
ok now what did I get myself into





took the box out the core had been leaking awhile, I think when the pressure was high it would seap out in to this case






dumped it out and then took it apart and cleaned it
we don't want to smell that anymore




then put it all back together




new heater hoses




This took all of my weekend starting friday night for 3 hrs and working all day sat, and then cleaning reassembly all day sunday.
all said the cores in these cars is a very big job, I can now go back to enjoying my ride.

current pics 12/12
