      haha I need to go get the sand paper. The wheels are starting to stress me out because they're so close to being done and now it's approaching May and they're not on.

      A pretty weak update here: The final lip is sitting on my lap and being polished as I surf the world wide web. Then it's time to torque them down this week and seal them. Then finally, it's tire/spacer time.
      Here is a pic of the rears, the fronts are now done just not together yet.

      Coiln, depending on time I might be able to let you try on my 15's and 10's for testings. It all depends on time lol. Worst case you can do like I have in the past and just get a stack of washers to push out the wheels, then simply measure those. I've done that countless times, helps eliminate a lot of error for me I am guessing though that you will need like final et 20 rear and front is like 20 as well lol.

      What are the offsets Colin? Mine are 40 front and 25 rear
      What are the specs of the wheels needing adapters? If they aren't stupid huge wide then it's easy.
      I'm probably going to rock some sawblades next week for a few weeks so I can sell my existing wheels. It should give you some solid ideas Colin since I think you share same widths

      Yeah you'll need spacers no matter what for the rears. Kole's are 33f & 45r. The rim hit the upright thingy. I really do think you'll need 15-20mm for the rears to sit flush. I will say if you aren't stetching it will look ok. If you do it's gonna look goofy flush verses poke. It will sit in a bit too much I fear.

      Yeah I need spacers for sure. With the stock suspension the rears hit the strut. I'm doing a good amount of stretch and was thinkin 15-20mm in the rear 12-15mm on front. Stretch I was gonna go big with 205/45 front 215/45 rear.

      i think as close as flush with a stretch will be great really low. we'll see after he gets a chance to toy around though.
