    Does anyone know it 10 inch wheels will work on the front with the stock size 275 40 20s ? reason i ask is i think i found a tire i like and although they are custom they skip the 9,5 side and go either 9 or 10. they do come in 10,5 inch for the rear with either a 25,5 or 28,5 offset, i think the 28,5 offset will put the wheel too far inward and rub on the inside, i read that 27 mm was the magic number, just so happens that this manufacturer does in 3 mm increments. your thoughts on the front wheel width and moving the rear wheel 1,5 mm in over the recommended 27 mm will be much appreciated.

    They look pretty good. Old school. Not bad at all. I would go for 9" in the front, these cars aren't going to be road racing. 9" of wheel is plenty. Honestly 8" is probably enough.

    thank you for the feedback it is much appreciated. personally i do not care for the skinny spoke rims that show lots of the rotor so this wheel looks a bit like the old slotted ET style but integrates some modern with the colored center. i am hoping that their black ceramic finish will blend with the blacked out hood and the phantom black paint
