NEW WHEELS AND TIRES ON VERT


Recommended Posts

So the new owner of the white 72 vert I had and sold for a former member here had me put some new wheels and tires on year one magnum 500's 17x9 rear with nitto 555's 285/40/17

And 17x8 front with 245/45/17's

Looks pretty nice, and should handle really nice, next onto lowering the front

I really like the deep dish looks. I don't like the looks of later model wheels (with spacers) on our cars. Nice to see a classic look on new wheels.

With the black top on the white body those wheels really pop! Excellent choice.

What is the backspacing / offset on those?

4.5" in the front and 5.15" in the rear

 

Looks good from the pictures. Are you 100% happy with the backspacing or would you tweak it a bit one way or the other in the front or rear?

I think it's pretty good for a off the shelf wheel theres not much you can really do (thats the only back space available) except move them out a bit 1/4" ? with spacers but then your in the fender lip rolling game.
