My Saleen style SC wheels from wheel replicas just came in! 17x10 in the rear and 17x9 in the front! Absolutely love how they look and can't wait to get some tires on them and see how they look once she's on the ground with em. I'll keep you all posted

My turbo coupe was side swiped last february which sent me into a median snapping my rear passenger axle. Since i'm a broke college student I didn't have the funds to immediately fix her so she sat for about 6 months until I was able to save up enough to buy a rear end and drop it in. In the meantime I went about purchase various part for the car, lowering springs from Moog and BMR, as well as some new struts and 3in full exhaust system from Stinger Performance. Now that the new rear end is in and she runs great, it's time to start working on gettin her sitting nice and sounding even better!

I went with Enkei TFR in gunmetal. 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5rear.

I'm going to run 255/40s and 285/35s. My plan was to run 295s in the rear but I stumbled on some very lightly used tires at a price too cheap to pass up. Once they wear out I go to 295s.

Those are gonna look killer! I assume you went with a 5 lug swap then if you're getting those? I have that planned for the future but for now i'm stuck with the 4x108 haha. I'm planning on getting some 255/40/s for my front and then a set of 295/40s for the rear. Unless like you I can find a deal on a different size

I've been waiting on the wheels to finish the 5 lug swap. As soon as they show up and I get the tires mounted it going to all go on.

spittinfire, you should start a thread on your 5 lug swap, with pictures, I and probably some others would like to see and hear about it.

If people want to hear about it I'll take some pictures and write up my experience. I was going to take pictures for myself anyway.
