      Loved the style and wasn't sure how they would fit, but bought them anyway and glad I did. Little too much bling at first although they look better to me now. Could use more lip, but they are tight at 15x7's.

      Running JOMs with 10mm spacers up front and 16mm in the back. Probably going to dial it down just a bit more.




      Lemme know what you think. Love it, throw rocks at it, whatever.

      Never been a fan of shaving the body line but looks good. You gotta shave the front bumper now though

      what are you running on there suspension wise. good chance im picking up an 84 and I wanna drop it, but HR only gives like a 1.2 drop, and when I had them on my 90 I had to cut half a coil out of the front springs to even out the ride height.

      Runnin JOMs and they still have at least an inch of thread left with helpers. Fenders lips are cut and the flares too of course.

      Car was already shaved when I bought it and took a while to get used to that look. Gots to get the right fender reprayed first before messin with a bumper. This is definitely the good side.

      Pretty happy with how the wheels look as far as qulity. Were perfect out of the box with no nicks or machining goofs. Thanks for the comments guys!

      Looks awesome! The style definitely suits your car. I have Enkei 92 reps that I bought last spring. Classic Series wheels from Enkei make a great alternative to the typical wheel choices.
