Just didn't want to pay $400 a wheel to have them widened and would have added a fair amount of weight.
Do you have any places to recommend having the oem 19's widened?

Eric Vaughn is probably one of the best in country..........not cheap and as long as time is not a factor........he is the best.

and Weld Craft is another probably a little closer to you.

Like my CAI, I may be sacrificing some MPG for desire/ a deal. :/






After seeing what they would look like on my car, I can say we have VERY different tastes, friend lol.

That is why they make all of these different versions so that everyone can find something they like. My car had the base GT 18" rims and while I do like how they looked, I wanted some wheels with some black on them but not all black and the #1 wheel fit the bill for me.

10.5" to 11" rear and 9.5" to 10" in front.........depends on what tires you run.

I would like to squeeze 305's in the rear. I wonder if it's worth it. Price - wise it is, but I'm not sure about weight.

For the added weight it wouldn't be any more than going with some 20" wheels............and I'm not going to autocross the car often or do track days that often...........yes it is added weight, but for me I think the cool factor outweighs the 8lbs more per wheel.
Although I'm not sure about keeping my 14, I did talk with Eric again today after sending you the link to both sites. He has now come down to $350 a wheel although it will probably take 4/5 weeks and I am seriously thinking about it if I keep the car.
I am going to put the car up on a lift within the next few weeks to actually see how much room I have but I really don't see why
the 305 wouldn't fit.
What I was thinking was going 9.5 in the front with 275's and 10.5 in the rear with 285's. My issue is that the 30/35 sidewall is just too short for my taste and I really want at least a 40 and maybe a 45. Maybe 45 is a little too tall, but I need to check and see when I have it on the lift. Having TrakPak 9.5/10.5 would be so subtle.......it would just be too cool and I doubt anyone would really ever know because the front of the wheel would look exactly as it does now............and you or I could be the only people in the World to have widened OE TrakPak wheels.
You know, the cost isn't much more than buying a set of wheels everyone else has................IMHO

That's true. I'm awaiting an email back from both guys to see which route I want to go.

Save the money & just do the rears.

255 front & 305 rear is fine.

AM has replicas for sale that are 19x10 in the rear. They're pretty cheap. I wonder what they weigh. That may be an easy option too.

I really think I'd like to have the 10.5" rears and although the 9" fronts are ok, for me I think the 9.5" or 10" if I can find the room will work a little better than just 9". I've already talked with Eric and actually found another set of wheels for $350 as I'd like to keep mine with tires together since they only have 4000 miles on them.
