Not in stock form. The 11.5's will be after a mini-tub.

I mean the rear fender lips...and the fronts for that matter.

slammin where did you order your studs? and are they arp or h&r or?

these are the people to have kept me motivated. theres more out there than we think







Thanks for these pictures. Anymore to add?

The black one with the gold centers on the wheels and the dead dude's one are my favorite.

I do not have the studs yet. I plan to get the spacers figured out before I cover her up for the winter. then next year I will get studs. I am quickly running out of time because I wanted to cover her up next weekend.

And I still have not ordered spacers. I am worried I will get these 5mm for the front then find out I could have went 8mm or some stupid crap.

Guess I better just order them.

I have never been a fan of slammed cars but I also won't talk shit about the people that do like their rides that way. I like the Old School Muscle car look which has the rear end raised just slightly . I increased the rear ride height about one inch by changing rear springs and bushings from Pedders.

When it comes to wheels, anything is better than the factory units as long as they are not black. To me, black wheels look unfinished and from a distance they look like someone stole them and left the car on blocks.

^^^oh, you mean raked yeah, I like that look, provided the rear is not raised up, but the front lowered a little.

Like the look of lowered (not slammed) cars for the most part, just don't like living with them day to day, like watching curb stops, or having to be the sucker to lift it up to work on it (using a jack).

My VR-4 is tastefully lowered, but also has a nice koni adjustable suspension so it's stiff enough to not bottom out and such plus the car was pretty 'high' to begin with, so it sits just right and is practical.

Had an older camaro that was really low (the roof was ~48" lol) and the headers hung down, but not terrible...what did get hit a lot was the mufflers, since I 86'd the crossflow and put a true dual; even with smaller casings, seemed it would bottom out quite a lot and even got pulled over once from the sparks it emitted.

The lowest vehicle I've ever known that was driven was my friends toyota truck back in the 80's...he'd scrape the undercarriage on those little blue 'dots' on the road as he drove over them (no suspension movement, just driving straight), lol...

Thomas, exactly how much more room do your arms give? I'm going for it and ordering lips and barrels. I was going to go 1/2" out, and 1" to the inside. But after some thought, I'd rather go 1.5" in if I'll have the room anyway.

So you will be keeping the same face, just unbolt it, and bolt it on to new barrel/lip? If so, did you order the barrel/lip from Iconz also, or elsewhere?

Will the axles have to be narrowed as well to gain these couple inches?

Doug, that's exactly what I'm doing. I've been talking back and forth with Iconz about the details. The reason I went with 3pc in the first place was with a plan to mini-tub in the future anyway.

Jeremy, the axles won't need to be narrowed, as the hub will stay in the same spot. My center section will stay the same, but I'll have new (inner) barrels, and lips. It's just like when guys have their wheels widened but I won't have some jank ass welded stock wheels, and I can go outward too.

Oh4, why would I need new toe rods?

Who have you been dealing with?

I contacted Mitch initially, but someone named Daniel is who got back to me, and who I've been dealing with since.



And I just measured my front lips, and they're 1/2" narrower than my rears. So that means I'd be able to put my rear lips on to my fronts for moar lip and a make 9" wheel. That'd be a 9" wheel with a +36mm offset if I did that BTW. I think for the hell of it, I'm going to see how it looks anyway. I think with the rear being a bit more aggressive the fronts should get a bit more so as well.

i hate to say it, but most wheels made china which are about 90% of them now especially if they are one piece cast. they are about $58 to $65 bucks for 18's from the manufacturer. though nothing wrong with getting those.... since i do have those kind on my beaters. lol!

I have been dealing with Daniel also. He is a good guy, just I am not sure exactly what the status is. He has promised them by end of November. That's 8 days.

That is really awesome that you can manipulate the 3-piece like that, an advantage that I had not previously though of. moving 1/4 inch closer to the outside will defnitely be aggressive.

I get what you're saying with changing the barrels around. When Thomas said he was narrowing the arms, I assumed he was moving the hub in to gain you those couple extra inches. We are on two separate pages, I should have quoted Thomas.

I sure hope that's not what he meant. I figured he just meant making more clearance for the wheel like the G-Force units. After doing some research it looks like Chris' arms allow more clearance anyway.

I'll be sure to bring it up to him. I'm excited to see your wheels as well.

I like taking shit apart so I'm pretty excited about mixing and matching my wheel pieces, since I've never taken a set apart before.

I know that you've beat the piss out of your inner well, but that's where I would worry about making contact with a wide wheel. I use the GForce shock extensions now and with my drag radials, I encountered the wheel well long before I hit the control arm.

EDIT: Of course, that happened with the tire. So not a concern where the tires do not extend past the lips of the wheel on either side.
