no complaints there but i want a set for the rear that are backspaced 4.5 inches , im waiting for his response
I'm pretty sure those are special made by American Racing.I know for a fact they are about $100 more per wheel.I checked.Its pretty unlikely this dealer is gonna special order a set with 4.5 bs and have them sit on his shelf.I'm sure he buys the 4"bs in bulk.Good luck anyways !bm

Do your home work on those rims If you plan a Big dics conversion they have clearance issures with the multi piston calipers.

I bought some torq thrust knock off's.They look great imo.They were 700 to my door and the guy let me get them with 4.5" b.s.I really like the bullet style center caps too...They are redline alloy's wheels. Not a bad set of wheels for the jing.....

I have bought 2 sets of Americans from Fastlane Speed an Rod Shop.Both sets had custom backspacing. He is great to deal with and the prices are good also. Here is their web site fastlanespeedandrodshop.com.If you call him and get no answer,leave a message and he will return your call.

It's all what you like, i just thought when i was buying mine that i if i was buying cheap wheels like the Americans, i might as well save another couple bucks and just get an off brand..I will ride these for a while until i can get the intro's i've been looking at,then just pull the tires for my new wheels.If i planned on keeping this style i probaly wouldve bought the ar's...Good luck, take care
