Niche Sport Targa install on '16 GT PP

Hey guys, I wanted to show my new 20"x10" Niche Sport Targa wheels with Nitto NT555 275/35 tires all around. I also wanted to show how they sit out closer to the fender's edge in case any of you guys would be interested in these type of wheels. These are +40 offset and fit over the Brembos.

Attachment 196405

I had the stock PP wheels and tires (19" x 9.5" wheel, 275/40/19 tires on the rear & 19" x 9" wheel 255/40/19 tires on the front. The overall diameter difference on the rears was very little, and the fronts being slightly bigger than stock.

Thanks fellas. And no Guard 5.0, I put them on in my garage. I just backed it out to take some pics. I had another pic along the side of the car showing how far out they sit to the fender, but the pic kept turning out sideways, so I didn't post it.

Thanks for the information. I had no idea they were the same now. OP, How often do you track race her? Do you typically run 30 minutes of track races or longer?

Already have different springs ready to go and some Steeda IRS parts ready to install, just didn't get around to it yet.

Kona Blue - Never had it to a track. Heck, it only has 938 miles on it.

So if I'm not mistaken, the rears moved out about 3/4". 1/4" due to the 1/2" wider rim. The other 1/2" due to the decrease in the offset.

Well shoot bro, I'm sure your gonna take that carve cornering beast to the track. Its my understanding the S550 handles better than the Boss and that was designed to be a track car or track like car. Any big plans for running track races with it?

I'm really digging those wheels man

Non and non fed. I $uck!
Thanks, I wanted the silver machined wheels to match the silver over the top stripes. I got them from Mark at CJ's, mounted, balanced and lug nuts. Got a pretty good deal on them, too. And no, don't have any track plans for it as of yet. Partly because I didn't look into where any tracks are located. Whether it's better handling than a Boss I don't know. If I don't track it, I'm good with it. I'll just enjoy the sh*t out of it cruising it around.

Aaaaw yeah! Real nice! Where's the pic showing the stripes and wheels? I'm a chrome wheel fan but silver wheels with silver accent stripes is hard to beat imo.

Thanks, but I don't have a pic showing the stripes and wheels, yet. I just focused on the wheels in case somebody would be interested in the Niche's.

Ok, you're a hands on rub the car behind closed doors kinda guy instead of a picture from every angle guy. I gotcha. It's all good. We all love em in our own way. Especially Kona. All that product...little unnatural if you ask me. Lmao

Ha, thanks. I myself wasn't too crazy about the snowfall amount. Luckily for us it got up into the high 40's this past Sunday, and hit 50 yesterday. A good bit of it is gone!!
