I know ALOT of folks don't care for the ten holes but they changed the entire look of your ride for the better IMO,plus like you I'm a fan of the unassuming look when packing serious power under the hood.

I like what you did there being able to keep your five lug setup.The only reason I'm still 4 lug is to have the ability to rock the original ten holes when my heart desires.I take a few long road trips in the summer in my '86 and mount up the ten holes for the extra sidewall comfort.

I was waiting for you to start a thread with a picture I really like what you did. I love a clean "stock looking" coupe

Awesome! That makes me want to have a couple inches added to a couple of my Turbines along with drag radials and reinstall them back on my car.

Who would know. LOL

Weldcraft did the widening, its 200 a rim plus shipping there and back. The 5 lug was only 40.00 a rim and I found that within driving distance (Tampa Fl) not sure of the name but I can find out since some others have asked. Its all CNC with hardened knurled inserts put in. What was funny was when I asked how much for the 5 lug drilling he told me 160.00 and I was like ok thats a little pricey (must had a look on my face) and almost agreed when he said "you know thats for all 4" I was yeah sure I knew that lol.

Love it.

How wide is the rim now? What's the back spacing? What tire is on the back?

10 hole rim sleeper look. looove it. love that reef blue color too. my supercharged GT is the same color. its in my main pic. should be in the low elevens soon. i've been toying with the idea of taking off my welds and throwing on ten holes. my friends look at me like i'm crazy but with the right tire combination in the back they just look tough. i used to hate them but not anymore. so if you added 2 inches they went from 7 to 9 inches? any rubbing?
