Oh wow!! These are cobra thrush wheels, sounding like they may not fit without some adaptation.. $100 for the set. Probably buy em anyway. Yours looks awesome mane! Thanks for the pics, very helpful.

Nah. It's sitting on it, gonna try an adapter. Guess if that doesn't work will look for 18x8 for the front and put the 18x9 on the rear.

Spacers Or adapters? I'm a lil unsure if there's a difference. I'm thinking adapters bolt to the hub then the wheel bolts on to the adapter? What you want for them?
Got a pic of them?
