The wheels look incredible. Nice find on the car as well.
What size tires are mounted and what size, if any wheel spacers were used with the rims?
I have the same rims in chrome on order from a vendor on E-Bay. Pics to follow.

Nice find! The car and the wheels look great.

I have those same wheels that I bought on Ebay. Unfortunately they got all scratched up and chipped during shipping becasue of poor packaging. The set I have are 19's and are hubcentric. There is rubbber on the wheels but they need to be replaced. I believe that the wheels are still round and true and can probably be repaired/refinished. anyone want to buy them for $300 plus actual shipping costs? I can send pic if you send me an email. I just don't have the time to get them refinished.

I got the wheels and tires from Carlos at wheeldynamics.com. They didnt need spacers at all. I lowered it a bit with some HR springs so the stance would look more aggressive.

19x10.5 43mm with General UHP tires in 235/35/19

Carlos said I didnt have to, but I rolled the rear fenders just so Id be sure they didnt rub.

The car was in Florida, not Texas...I got lucky..it was that typical little old lady, one owner story..actually, the old lady was my mom ;-)

glad you all like it!
