No offence, but wouldn't it have been easier on the wallet and less stressful to just sell your car and buy an SVT?

Don't dip the car, you go through the trouble of swaping the front to half ass the paint. I say save up and paint it white. I've seen a white SVT and it looks badass, should have been a factory color.

Tim, the wheels can be found on eBay.

Speaking of the wheels, how long have you had them and how are they holding up to the elements?

Just noticed the wheels sit way out from the fenders, what is the offset? I have been considering these wheels is why I ask and I prefer the tucked look, thanks.

Money wise I spent 500 for front bumper rear bumper and svt wing. And the hood and fenders I traded a set if led taillights for. I love my car and the way it feels. And still have a loan on it. Almost paid off though. I bought this car in 09 and it only had 7000 miles on it and now it's pushin 80k. I guess I'm just attached lol.

The dip would not be long term. I'd rather spend 400 now get it all one color so I don't look like a douche driving it lol. Because I do want it white I just want it done right and that will cost me a pretty penny. I got quotes today for paint. 0_o

I was stupid when I bought these. I got the 16x8s. Well I went to Goodyear and they put tires on them. Should have ran a lot smaller. They rubbed the fenders really bad. Just in the rear. The offset was either 18 or 28. I can't remember. But other than that I loved the wheels. I'm picking up the chrome 16x7s from a guy after I test fit them. He said his day flush. So well see. Ill post a pic after I do on Friday or saturday

I noticed the wheels on your current setup look like sawblades. Can we get a side pic of your car?

I don't have them on any more. I ended up hitting a pot hole and bent one a little so I replace wheels. But as soon as I get to a computer I will post a pic of the wheels. I have no idea brand or model what they are but I love them and sadly ones bent :(. Also just got done putting the new wheels on so ill post a pic of those tonight as well
