Wow! The wheels look awesome, or as we'd say here in Boston "wicked pissa" Lol.

Looks amazing! I just wish they were one color since it is a 1 piece forged wheel.

Nice to see some TE37's sans Stickers.

What are the specs / offset's for the wheels?

9s would be nice for 255s, but 255s won't fit under there.

They would rub the inside (suspension)?

They rubbed on the front inside and rear outside (reflector area). this was with -2.7* camber and a lot of toe out just to get the tire to fit. Wore out like crazy. With 8" RACs +32 offset, no spacer.

The rear frame/subframe is shaped in such a way that it tapers at the front not allowing proper fitment. You could cut out a notch in the frame, but it's a waste. 245 is good enough.

Im thinking I might need to do some cutting to the fenders when I fit the wider tires. They dont look like they will just fit under there.
