Default Pics of Unfinished Wheel Build Project

I'm labeling these wheels as unfinished cuz I'm still restoring the center caps, and the rear tires turned out to be too big so I can't go up any driveways ATM

But I'm posting some pics up anyway since I said I would. Wheels are Work VS-XX in 18x11.5 +19 with a 235/40 and 18x12 -17 with a 245/40. Front lips are 5" and rear lips are 6". Wheels "fit" alright except for the fact that the rear tire turned out to be way too big, apparently federals run almost 2 sizes bigger than they actually are! So I'll try out some other tire sizes and tweak the ride height tomorrow.

Offset measurements are just estimates till I have time to measure them out accurately.

Bonus points to the person who notices what I did to these wheels that makes them one of a kind

Sorry for the crappy pics, I just snapped them really quick


*** keep it civil in here please



EDIT:Apparently the chart I used for my offset calculations were wrong. I just went through the rims and remeasured everything. The wheels are actually 18x11.5+19 in the front and 18x12-17 in the rear :/

first guess and its close, but VS-XX aren't like BBS LM's, so you can't just reverse mount the faces( trust me I know, I own a set of 18" reverse mounted BBS LMs too)

This stretch isn't very aggressive, these federals run very big. They say they're a 245/40 but they're more like a 265/40. I have 4 different brands of 255/35/18 in my storage and these federals are 5mm to 15mm(measured from edge to edge of the treadblock) bigger than all of them! And they're way taller too.

My last stretch was a bridgestone 255/40 on a 12" and it was waaaaaay more aggressive than this is.


I think all of the wheels I own are worth as much or more than the car

I'm with Cherplex. I want to like it, but it's too aggressive on a stock body. Be careful when going down a few tires sizes on the rear. You pop the bead or have a quick loss of air pressure on the highway...think about it.
