My 1.....I am hooked on this car!

I bought this car a few months ago, and I love it. I have a whole list of mods, in addition to the ones I have already completed, I want to do. Here is a quick shot from this morning.

Sounds good. My car has the same exhaust with AR downpipes. I'm also ordering an intake either today or tomorrow.

Nice wheels ! I'd like to buy them, but I want to fit 225 front and 255 rear. I don't know much about wheels, and offset and all these things, so I was wondering what sizes I should get to fit and be able to put on these tires.

The available options are :

1. The same square 8 as skeeler but I'm not sure 255 would fit rear :P
2. 18x8.5 ET 38
3. 18x9.5 ET 35

I was considering getting 8.5 front and 9.5 rear, you guys think that would fit, any rubbing at the rear ?

Thanks a lot for you help !

Slight drop is on the winter list. Need to do some more research on it. I bought it as a fun weekend car....so I kinda want to drive it while it is still nice and not have it tore apart. Then start in on the major mods this winter.

Nope, always had caps. Actually, only had the stock wheels on for about 48 hours, enough to get it home and wait for the new ones to arrive.
Ya, I talked to you on FB awhile ago....your ride was my "inspiration" to chose the "1".
