Thank you for sharing those pictures. She looks damn good! Charles, could you please talk a bit more about your wheels? Perhaps a bit about how much they cost, where you sourced them, whether your satisfied w/ them, etc. if you don't mind. I'd really like to know your thoughts because I've always wanted those same exact wheels to put on my NB.

Specs on the wheels?

Wow, they're 17s?

They look like 15" from the pics. Nonetheless, your car looks great!

I waited 4 months for them. Quality is top notch. 100% satisfied. Not my first set of Rays wheels. Sent you a message.

I'd like to know what all was involved in getting the wheels to fit properly, and with proper alignment. The car looks pretty low.

What was used for rear camber? The rear tires fill out the fenders pretty well. Anything special back there? I know there's a set of BC coilovers under it. Was it just the camber plates up front and then the typical toe adjustments up there, or was anything else required?

Everything is stock for camber in the rear. I needed alittle negative camber to fit the wheels. Fronts are just the BC camber plates and toe adjustment. The final spec's for the rear wheels is 17 8.0 15 offset (Kics 10mm spacers). Front is 17 8.0 25 offset.

Was the 10mm spacer put in to clear suspension, or to push the wheels out a little further? Did you have to put longer lug studs in for that?

Since you had to have some negative camber, i'm assuming they were used in order to clear the rear suspension, right?

I used the spacer kit to space the wheels out further. The wheels cleared the suspension with out the spacer also. The Kics spacer is a bolt on spacer kit. You don't have to install the longer studs with these.

offset is 41. Not the best offset I know, but I didn't have a choice. Going to get some 225-45-17 tires for them.

The offset on my BBS LM's is +40. I just used a 5mm spacer to bring it out to +35. Run some 235/40. They're perfect for that width.
