Here are my new wheels that I test fitted tonight!!! and specs....

Bonspeed Huntington Satin Finish Face
Front 18x8 BS 4.0" 245/45/18 26.7" rolling diameter
Rear 18x10 BS 5.5" 275/40/18 26.7" rolling diameter

Front tire clearance

and finally last pic

Please note that the camera angle can be decieving on how much clearance I got but I to have plenty of clearance as the last thing I want is to rip up my fenders

All came out great with clearances, etc. I am only test fitting these as I am waiting for some more Zaino to arrive to finish protecting them (there only this clean once) and also hubcentric rings to make sure they are centered to reduce any possible vibration issues. I must say that I can't imagine going with any larger wheel/tire combo on the rear without adding fender flares or modifying the frame as it is very close to one spot on the frame in the rear just above the trailing arm pocket. The fronts really surprised me with how much room I have. Its sometimes not easy to take the pic at the right angle but I have at least a 1/4" clearance around the front from full turn to full turn then again I was running 255/60/15's front with no problems.

btw...I don't have a rear sway bar as I went recently with a dual mount rear spring just in case anybody is interested.

Oh man! Those look beyond wicked.

It is amazing how the right wheel and tire package can transform a car from just another pretty face, to something you can't get out of your head.

Very nice selection.

Not to offend as they are clean looking and a nice fit but those sure look like a life size Hotwheel wheel.

Sweet Rims

Now that you have had them for a while do you still love them. Any rubbing issues under hard cornering? Also where did you purchase them?
