new wheels on the turboranger

got tired of my old lincoln LSC wheels, and im not much of a fan of black wheels anyhow. i also added some mazda mirrors for a touch of extra chrome.

thats because it takes machine work, or large spacers to clear the 2wd hub. large spacers + stock offset = no-go for launch on lowered trucks

and thanks!
