Hmmmm IDK how I feel about this yet.

I'll wait for more pics to decide.

I think bigfoot is blurry,
that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry. And that's extra
scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster, roaming the countryside.

Re:

I know it needs to be lower, trust me! LOL After driving lowered daily drivers for 10 years i've realized that slammed cars suck to drive everyday. After all, this is just my beater and i'm content with my Eibach Pro Kit stance...

Side shot.

I'll be the first to say it, I'm not a fan.

they'd look sick with the right size tire tho. your clearance looks like it would be ok with a wider tire.

I do however look forward to seeing them in person. And would enjoy borrowing them for a photoshoot because they would compliment my car nicely.

I think thats why I cant make up my mind on them for sure the tires are throwing it off.

I've often wondered how this would look on my car since I my rear fenders are stretched and rolled. Tire would fit right in .



Re:
Wednesday, May 05, 2010 5:58 PM
i think it should have been an 18x9.. the 17s just look to small.. and mabe even a 215 rather then 205.



Re:
Wednesday, May 05, 2010 6:07 PM
combo of the 17s and it being so high.. doesn't look "flush"

send em my way and ill slam my @!#$ on em. its the only way flush can be done. if they were 18s i think it could work out a bit better too...

side shot looks okay, but just the angled shots it looks too goofy.

I heard a lot of this when i first put black wheels on my car, made black housing headlights and started putting Toyota Cavalier parts on my car. Not much time later they all became common trends lol.

Clearance would not be ok with a wider tire, plus a wider tire defeats the purpose of having the stretched look and a flush offset wheel wrapped in a tire that can tuck up into the fender without rubbing.

The only thing wrong is that my car is not low enough. I would love to see this wheel/tire combo with a propper stance but like i said this is just my beater...

Re:

It looks better in person, the pics are hard to judge.

One more pic, forged aluminum lugs.

I think it looks ok man, like you and everybody else said. Just needs to be waaay lower, but I know its your beater. Those lug nuts are sick.

Having this wheel/tire combo on a car that can't tuck the tire defeats the purpose of having the fitment.

I love the wheel/tire and the idea of a hellaflush cav and understand that it's your DD but, if you're not going to do the whole look don't do any of it.

LOVE the 240 though!
