    Anyway.. Green wheels sold easy and why wouldn't they? They are SICK! Got these while I was away at camp.. Flew in to town.. Car still sitting at my parents' house so I took some quick pics with the wheels/tires I bought from some schmuck on nasioc who ripped me off hugely. Anyway.. Here are some pics of the new wheels.. Before I took the tires off and bead blasted them before powder coat.

    Stock height, stock camber settings

    No rubbing issues with that wheel width / tire size? Fender, while turning, or otherwise?

    Jealous? Yes.

    Story: found wheels/tires on nasioc, I text messaged the kid. He tells me the wheels are MINT and the tires are 70% tread. Sends me ****ty pics of the best wheel/tire. Tells me $750+shipping I send him the money ($965 total) about 3 hrs later he tells me someone else wants them for $1200 shipped.. Well sorry but I didn't talk you down on price, I agreed to pay what you wanted so BFD.. Ship em.. Wheels show up they are spray painted gold over chipping paint and dirt and look terrible. Tires are completely shot and nowhere near useable. I paid the same price for them that I could of had brand new for in a color I would of ran on my car for quite some time.. Instead I took the tires off, disposed of them and bead blasted them and are powdering them.

    0 rub at all, full lock to full lock up front zero issues. Pulling in and out of my parents driveway (weird angles) zero issues. Best of all they clear the brakes. When the coilovers go on I'll run -2 degrees camber and they will fit perfect.

    It is what it is. I text him after receiving the wheels and he claims the wheels were blasted and painted and blah blah.. There is literally spray paint on the tire.. I knew 2 of the tires were cambered but figured they were somewhat useable til I at least get home on break for a few months and no.. They aren't useable at all.

    Always hesitant to go used for that reason. Never know. Luckily I've had pretty good luck.

    I know!! But even if I told you the color you'd have to see it to understand it.
