I LOVE those wheels. Something about the way they look. Kind of old school but modern.

Enjoy and can't wait to see another flared vette!!! :partyon:

They remind me of the old Mini-lites that a lot of 70's racing vettes wore. Nice wheels.

Thanks guys for the compliments. The ls1 really woke up the vette so I needed to look as well as it performed. The front two wheels and the tires should be here in a week. The rear I'm using a 345/40/17 and 275/45/17 up front.

OHHHH .. Me WANT!


Who's are those? Got a website/dealer list somewhere?
Please don't say they were one-off and were 1200 each!

Very Nice -- if you haven't been able to read through the drool on this note.

Cheers - Jim

So are those a 17x11 with a 4" backspace? where are you getting your flares from, do they have a website, or any pics of the flares? What are you putting on the front for tires and wheels. I see 17x9 sorry what Back space upfront, and are you doing flares up front too.? Mine will need paint in a few years, so i will make some changes then.

They are a 17x11 with a 3 1/4 bs. I got the aci flares for 375 off a guy in houston brandnew. But they are usually about 725 I think. The fronts will be a 17x9.5 with 4" bs and yes with flares

dang it, more and more people are getting these wheels! I was hoping to be among the few but it looks like by the time I get the $$ to buy wheels and tires these things will be as common as TTII's! :laughing:

Thanks for the info on the sizes. Those wheels really do look awesome :thumbsup:

The one thing i like about centerline wheels, is that they will make you whatever you like, but once you give them the dimensions, you own them weather they fit or not.

Does any one have a good write up on how to install the flares.
Before I did my rears to the bonding strips, the Eckler's book was what I read.

69myway has a web site (mcspeed.com, I think) showing the install of the L88 style flares.
