The wheels look nice. however, I would suggest you consider lowering the cars stance a bit. I think it would look better with the car lower.

I like the wheels, very clean! The wheel gap is a little rough though. But considering what it takes to lower a car and that it only cost $500, it'll be fine!

thanks for the comments. i've already put more than $500 back into it but overall i'm pretty satisfied with what i have. the stance will come later, probably after the first of the year.

i guess it'* time to update this thread.

i've replaced the body parts on the left side that were needed. i've blacked out the lights and the bumpers. the hood & driver door are from a 94 lesabre, the rear door is from a 95 ultra, & the front fender is from a 92 lesabre.
