RE: want wheels

I'll post pics on the car soon, they fit!!!
I had to make minor body "fixing" in order to make them fit because I was NOT going to fold the fender lip on the rear.

I haven't post pics b/c my car is misfiring/ all 4 front are not firing #1,2,5,6,
pulled the manifold to find that the upper manifold plenum gaskets were leaking very bad. I used carb cleaner to find the leak. had to soak through orifices available aiming under manifold.
It's under a car port and if I roll the car out for a pic, I can't roll it back in. painted the calipers also. Waiting on my car paint so I can get to work. body work ready for sealant/paint.
Sorry guys, it's going "candy" red. lots of chrome on car.

ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET SMALLER COIL SPRING SHIMS?
I think mine are the biggest, I want the 8mm ones [^]

It's not all that, But it's mine.

RE: want wheels

They do, but When I looked for them I couldn't find staggered sized.. I haven't seen a sedan with staggered in here, all I've seen is people put spacers on the rear for a more aggresive look.

You will have to do look around, I'll help ya out and start looking. what offset/size?
tires also?

It's not all that, But it's mine.
