Go wide body please...that stretch looks cartoonish. Dont get me wrong, the wheels look great, but get the tires closer to the wheel size, and make the body look/fit as aggressive as the wheels.

"over the top" was the title of a bad 80,s movie staring sylvester stallone about arm wrestelling competition. and should have been the title of this thread. also if any of you remember the faces stallone made during his matches in this movie then you have a good idea of how mine looks right now....... not hating.... just dont jive with me.. b+ for over the top effort

Can I please for the love of everything holy have some more pictures of this beast?
Thanks man! More pics later today when I hopefully nail my tire selection down. I also gotta figure out why my rear isn't cambering like it did with the last setup, this setup is actually equal to or less aggressive than the emitz fins, and the rear is just not cambering as well.

That's kinda what I wanted, but I wanted to have the front look more similar to the rear fit. With that 5" lip in the front I still have a +20ish offset

With these Reverse style barrels you don't really have to worry about popping a bead. The drop center is only on the inner half of the barrel and is very narrow in comparison to the width of area the tire has to seat. The tire literally will bead from the centerline of the rim all the way to the flange of the outter.

i'd get them closer if I could add more camber

If I went widebody I'd do the same style fitment and I'd be running like a 14" rim.

Understandable, this is on the extremely unnecessary end of the spectrum, but it's all in fun to me

I agree with this. The 97 kit or AC kit would make this look better.

I want to like it as well. It's so close to being 'very nice', but in my book they are to the point where they just don't fit.
If you're going to go with this "STYLE", then you (like you said) need to get more aggressive with the tires, AND THEN you need to SLAM IT down so the tips of the top of the rim almost touches the fender.

If it were mine, I would get some Missle rear fenders, and 25+ fronts and make it look really clean like JDMMuscles SC- as it sits it just seems incomplete. Reminder: I do want to like it- the rims are very nice, great choice. I also like the ES projector fogs- nice work. Of course, also 97-00 sides and rear would give this a more finished look.
