How do they sit with the weight of the car on them?
Not sure haven't gone that far yet, I wouldn't think that it would vary at all, due to were I have the stands placed, or are you thinking something else?How do they sit with the weight of the car on them?
Yeah they can get pricey, don't drive the car much, so it should be ok for awhile.Looks good, I just wouldn't wanna pay for the next set of tires...
Hopefully it does not poke out of the box like the spindle did when UPS dumped it off? LOLOnly if the GM Performance Parts Truck accidently dumps one off at the house. I couldn't even think about spending that type of money.
Yeah I know, I really am beginning to think that UPS doesn't like me, doesn't matter whatever I get from them has some kind of damage to them, damn. I guess it is a shame that I am going to cut up the spindles that you sent meHopefully it does not poke out of the box like the spindle did when UPS dumped it off? LOL
The rears are 67 pounds each, they were shipped with the tires on and nothing but bubble wrap. Fronts were 62 pounds, the lugs and locks were included with the deal, so maybe a pound there.Mike,
Weigh those suckers before you bolt everything down. I'm interested in how much they weigh.
Thanks I hate you tooI'm hating on you so hard right now!
The fit on those looks amazing as is. What is the offset on the rear wheels?
Ah, you are not that far off from stock then. I weighed those stock chrome wheels and tires I have for sale, and they came up at 60lbs.The rears are 67 pounds each, they were shipped with the tires on and nothing but bubble wrap.

As far as the deep lip, yeah they are cool and I looked for sometime for some and really didn't like what I was finding. So I said the hell with it. Especially since I got the rims for 450 bucks. the rubber was more of course, but oh well I couldn't really go wrong to be honest, if I didn't like them I would find something else. But I think that I am going to dig these.
I think though that I am going to notch the frame though and cut the spacer down to 2 inches in the back and have the same in the front, this would conceivably put the wheels in the same position as far as offset goes as they would be on a vette, I have always liked the look of a fat tire slightly tucked in, we will see. As you can see by the pics I need to clean up the other side of the garage to stage parts and everything else, it has been a dumping ground for the past few months.
I think that it will come out really good. Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it. And I am betting that it is going to look different on the ground for sure.
