I am by no means a "good" photoshopper, but this should get the point across, especially if you close your left eye, and squint the right eye, while hopping on your left leg with both hands in your pockets.

Get them. They will increase your fertility and make you irresitable to the opposite sex, and in some cases the same sex.

btw, they are from 94-97 Cobras. 98 Cobras got 95 Cobra R-ish looking rims but i think they were narrower or something.

That sounds more like an OFFSET than a Backspacing.... whats the width of your wheels? Any chance that the offset is -19mm?

Wow. Those are 15x8's? They dont look it.

Well, if my mathematical calculations are correct (LOL) then your backspacing is 3.3" roughly.

What's the width of the wheels he wants to trade you? If they are 8" wheels, then the outside lip of your wheel is supposedly going to be inward roughly 2.5" per wheel
