My rims and Tires! (That Don't Fit)

Well I mounted the Front wheel just to get an Idea of what they look like. I am waiting to hear from Tire rack before I do anything. The Car is stuck at my Parents house til I get this worked out (they have a heated garage and it was Chilly)

Oh I took off my side moldings and decided to leave them off. It is getting painted in the fall so I will get rid of the rivets then. Tright now I am going to Buff the paint so you can't see the marks from the old moldings and hopefully it will be less noticable.

My uncle is coming up from the cities to look at it, If tire rack won't do something for me. Its Either that or I swap a 9C1 acxle in there which is the skinniest of the B-body axles, then I'd have clearanc, Posi, and Rear discs! ! Once I figure out my Clearance issues I am installing my Eibach springs that will lower it 2" all around.

Not too bad looking. Just need to paint it black, then it will look sweet.

Nah! I hate black, It is either going to be Impala SS DCM (Dark Cherry metallic) or something in Dark smokey Grey.

^ I might Try this if Tire Rack won't do anything for me. My Tire rep is talking to his tech guy trying to figure out what I already know! The offset is wrong.

Tire rack Says if i'd like I can send them back. I think I feel more Comfortable with this than doing body work. I am having a tough time finding these in the offset I need so Hopefully I can still get hopsters cause I love them.

Woohoo! They are sending me one New Rim. With a Offset, and I am sending them mine back. They want me to test fit it, since American Racing is saying the one I got should work. Got to say there Customer Service is Top Notch!
