Yess! Sorry I've been busy at work. The new racelands are amazing! Everything fit prefect! I took the rear adjusters out and I have 3 more threads to go in the front.

Cool!

Those are Contour SVT wheels right? They look good on there. Maybe spacer them out a bit, but they look plenty good as is.

How's it ride?

Yes they're svt contour wheels thanks i like them wish they were a little wide tho. I never undstood why people use spacers.. My thinking is if i put a 5-10mm spacer it would rub? it doesnt rub now so i think im good...?

Glad you like them & they work great for you. I'd pass on the spacers too.

Depends on your current clearance, and, part and parcel, how much you want to go through for a bit more of a look.

On one of my old Z-cars, I got some 15" factory turbo wheels, but the offset made the rears look like they were in too far. I put a 1/4 spacer on and it really changed the look nicely (well, imo).

Prior to those wheels I had some zero offset wheels on it that caused a bit of rub in corners, so I rolled the fender lip to get clearance.

There are ways around nearly everything!

If you like 'em as is, rock 'em that way - it's a great looking wheel for the car, they should've offered those from the factory instead of those ugly 16's they put on the later cars (no offense to those who have factory 16's and like them!).

Nice ride homie!

Doesn't look like he has a lot of room for spacers.
