backspacing is how far in from the hub that the edge of the rim projects towards the middle of the car.

I would get rims of AM but I don't have the money for tries..

---------- Post added at 11:43 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:42 AM ----------

So I would have to use the tires I have which are 17x8 I think
i think u should just buy wheels from AM or whatever site, and just save up for the tires. dont settle with any cheap set of wheels. its not everyday u buy new wheels.

Had a shop run a fuel injection service on my car. Best $100 i spent. Drip fed thru the throttle body, then a can of bg 44k in the tank. Got rid of my hesitation problem, and starts almost instantly. I was out eating across the street, and my buddy who works there told me to get back as fast as i could because he went to close my door with the key in the ignition to clean it out, and my paneling around my Window/lock buttons moved, hit the buttons, almost caught his head in the window and locked my keys in the car.

Have a friend looking at buying a car she's 16
She needs one under 4k so I'm trying to get her to buy a fox body 5.0 with a 5 speed.
She knows I want one, and she would let me work on it and clean it, and when she is ready to sell it I get it lol.

I've found that it all depends on the color of your car. I love the wingless look on black cars but I tried it on mine once and hated it

I'll try it. I think it would be good to take it off once a month and wash the paint under it also since its fresh paint.

May look odd with out lowering but that comes soon!

Post up some pics when you do it. And I think that was one reason I didn't like mine wingless. I'm still rocking the 4x4 stance
