Anyone running 17in?

Starting new thread....anyone running 17inx8 out there on your CS?

Would running Eleanor rims make for super rough ride due to tire size or is that pretty much taboo for purist?

Will 8in fit with correct backspacing?

I think David Athens is running 17s on his black GT/CS and Bill is going to run the same on his. David's car should be in the gallery.

Only gallery shot of David's was his race pic with rear slicks but I saw his CS off a previous post regarding LeMans stripes. Looks good...not familiar with Bill's.

Ill PM them offline if they respond to figure offsets. Thanks Arlie.

Thanks Bill...like the "dish" lip on those rears...and those Lemans are pretty sick as well.
