Better late than never!! New rim and tire setup!

Finally they came in... 15x8 mickey thompson sidebiters with 33x12.5 Goodyear duratracs. overall... LOVE the look of these 10fold over my flat black eagle 100's. the stance is also wider due to offset and backspacing differences.

Only problem is... The caliper is literally a sixteenth away from the inside lip of the rim and ever now and then i hear them grind. Also need to trim a wee bit of the front bumper and they now rub at full lock, but overall they look badass!!

What part of the caliper is it hitting? I had issues with my Alcoas because one of the shims that the pads sit on bend up and scraped the rim... I just trimmed them a bit and it worked out fine.

I like the Duratracs. However, I like your old Eagle wheels better.

The eagles looked alright, but these are the first set of spoke's ive owned for it since the stock ones and i think they look awesome, i have that satisfied feeling with these that i didnt have after purchasing the eagle's.

looks really good man. part of me wishes i went with these. but the issue with the calipers was exactly why i didn't go with 15's. ive had the tape weights actually hit the caliper. no bueno.
