Wheel spacers make a big difference!

Well I like the wheels that I have on the truck the 1995 Polished Cobra wheels so to make them stand out a little I got the lips on the cut outs painted but something still didn't look right and it was that the wheels sat to far into the fenders and didn't look right. I went and found 1" spacers and installed them and it looks alot better. I think I have done some other things to it from my last post but I can't really remember to be honest lol.

Hmm, im not feeling it. I really do like your truck, im just not sure that you are sure of exactly what look you are after.

First things first... take the blocks out in the back... you need to lower that rear end down a bit... or lower the whole truck.

Secondly, wheel spacers can look good... but how big did you go? they look too big.

Just my Opinion... not trying to be a dick. like i said, i really like your truck!

and i doubt there are blocks in the back either. just the lower profile tires making the factory rake look worse.

hanger flip ASAP! at least....

*edit, i see a 3/4 drop in his profile waiting to be installed....GET ON IT! those wheels will look ALOT better with a drop.

Yes adapters and that is stock ride height just way lower profile tires. Stock was like 225,60 15"s and now it is 245 45
17"s on the front and 255 45 17"s on the rear. I have a 3/4 inch drop kit in my garage I know exactly what look I am going for. Just give it some time so I can get everything done these are just stages. I also have a full exhaust in my garage just have to get the time to do it. I don't see how you say you arn't feeling it the wheels acually fill the fenders now. Just wait for the finished picture prob by around the begining of next year you will know what I am after.
