Love the deep dish and staggered look
he wheels and tires fit great, they filled out my wheel wells perfectly on my 03 gt. I love the staggered look it is exactly what my car needed. The stock 17" wheels and tires had such a huge gap in the wheel wells that this set was perfect size wise.
The color isn't the same as the stock wheels so I am very disappointed with that they are so light in color that from a distance they almost look chrome, which I really dislike. I really wanted to keep the car looking stock and with these new ones it is very noticeable that they are not stock. From the pictures they looked allot darker on the website. After seeing them on my car I wish I would have gone with the black ones, The anthracite at American Muscle is just too light of a silver color, they look chrome or polished from a distance. Which is not the look I was going for at all. Very unhappy with the color.
But the big problem was they were not balanced, from the moment I put them on my car it shook. It vibrated so bad I ended up taking it in and it cost me $60 bucks to get them rebalanced at a local shop. The shop I took them to said who ever balanced them didn't do a very good job, only 1 wheel of the 4 was properly balanced. So now after a bunch of hassle my car is driving smooth down the road.
Would I recommend these wheels and tires to a friend? Yes I would I would just also recommend that as soon as they are shipped to you go get them checked for proper balance before you put them on your car. And do no expect the anthracite to look dark like the stock ones at all and DO NOT buy just rear ones to give yourself the staggered look they will not match the stock from ones at all. Buy it as a set of four.
