Still waiting for my thicker adapters to come in for the fronts, been driving around with just the rears done for 2 weeks now...

I take it the rear clearance is good, even without the roll?

There's plenty of room. I actually had them spaced them out an extra 5mm at one point from trying to figure out what was making contact and there was still a few mm of clearance without a roll (turns out the bolts were a bit too long). I'm confident you could fit at least an 11" wide wheel in the rear.

Ok, finally got them on. Going to lower it a bit and try to get some more camber in the front. I think this'll work out nicely.

I love how it looks. Seems more "classic" for some reason. I think an angle shot when it's even lower will look amazing with the wide wheels.

To be honest, I liked them better too, but they were 17x7 and I couldn't afford to widen them. These are 16x9.5 and I like them almost as much.

Thanks guys I need to figure out how to get some more camber in the fronts and then I should be able to lower it down a fair bit more.
