Let me know what you think. They're 18x9.5" all around. Yes they're replicas and no I do not care. Partial sponsorship from the company and I love the wheels.

Also this front lip is waiting in my garage Click image for larger version

The lip reminds me of a vinyl baseboard strip flipped over and screwed onto the bumper

I don't think I'm going to rivet it in, it screws into fender lining in the wheel well and can be mounted with double sided tape, it looks better in other pictures

I like the wheels a lot............and I hope that lip is VERY soft, as it looks as though it is going to be rubbing on everything.
I don't think that I would do that to my car --- but you know what? It's YOUR car --- if you like it that is really all that matters, right?

Thanks for the love on the wheels and the insight on the lip, regardless of your opinions it's still going on my car I value your opinions though and they are what I asked for so thank you!

From the pic provided that lip looks like Cove base nailed to the front of the car with roofing nails. Is that an actual preformed lip that you have or is it rolled up rolled up rubber? It may just be a bad pic (grainy) and for whatever reason it would not let me zoom in on it.

New wheels! New changes soon

Y spoke wheels are pretty sweet. Some of the best looking wheels our there. I've got some FR500s on my list for my car. And the Y spoke look awesome on the rocket.

I think it's a bad pic. If retro vintage 1980's road race is the look your going for then it will look great!
