97 park ave is on a distinguished road

they are 20x8" with somewhere around a +35 offset. the rubber is 245/35/20. there are absolutely no rubbing issues on any corner of the car, even with 3 people in the back and my subs in the trunk theres no rubbing. im even going to lower it in the spring so you shouldnt have any problems on this big body until you get to 22" and up which i hope youre not doing.
as far as the dash goes, no cutting here, im not sure why you had to cut the dash unless you put a screen in.

haha, no i was thinking more like 18'*. i bought a car not a truck lol. as for the stereo, i had to cut the innards to accomodate the thick wiring harness. i wanted to keep the stock plug so i bought an adapter. and im not thrilled about the fact the stereo cant be flush with the adapter like the exact same adapter in my moms century. i had to use that 1/4" spacer and when i tried to use the decorative ring that snaps on the cage, the front dash piece you see with the dash put together was too close to the faceplate for it to fit. the reason you cant push it back any further is the duct going to the passenger side vent right next to the stereo.

i included a cellphone pic of the stereo. its not really noticiable with the spraypainted cage to match the glossy stereo, but the fact the cage is exposed annoys me.

dont mind all the wires in the first pic, they were for an external hd tuner, but i didnt like the look so i removed it. 2nd pic is just the usb cable for my ipod,

before- old flip down stereo cage not painted

This may seem like a stupid question, but are all Park Aves six seaters?

no, some of the newer ultras have a center console inbetween the front seats instead of the flip down storage box/armrest
