Well looking at your garage pics I'm not a fan at all. They stick out way too far from the quarter panels.

Man I don't mean any disrespect but I think the wheels stick out 2 inch too far. The tail lights urk me more than the tires. If I had the darker color I would darken the tail lights. Seem a bit rishish.

Maybe sink the wheels in? or a wide body, which are impossible to find

im going to get new blacked out tail lights, i dont like the euro plus, a while back someone stole the headlight covers off and thought that the back tail light had a tail light cover on so they pried the lens off, realized it wasnt a cover then left it there, so the lens is silicon glued to the light which isnt working to well, and should i sink the wheels into the body? or a wide body

If they're broke that's a good reason to re place them

IMO take them off they look hideous and cheap. Looks like some random putting wheels on that don't know a single thing about them. Looks like trailer trash lol. Just saying. I'd rather roll around on 10 holes than those

I don't know what the guy wants. I don't take him serious. He posts something and don't come back for days. And does not make himself clear.
