    those look great. What tires did you go with?

    and did you have any fitment problems, or require fender rolling?

    Thanks!

    I went with Nexens 235/40/18 and no fitment problems at all.

    that's pretty freakin' cool. I love it when a part fits with no problem.

    I've got my eye on a set of 18x8.5's but since i'm rolling a wagon it will require some modification (see: cut the hell out of) to my rear QPs.

    also I don't know if it's your pictures or my monitor but your wheels look black and not Matte Bronze. do you have a link to any other pics of these wheels? 'cause they look sweet.

    Thanks again, and I was quite relieved when I put them on and found out I didn't have to roll the fenders. But, if you go with the same tire size as I did, I don't think that rolling fenders on your wagon would be necessary.

    As for larger pictures, did you try clicking on the thumbnails? It, should bring up a larger picture.

    I know they are not the most expensive wheels out on the market but hey, I love them and got them at a good price. Can't beat that.
