I put them on. I'm sure that part was done right. The box has the right part numbers on it so I'm assuming they are right.
I did get them used so who knows.
They were supposed to only have 7k on them.

It's dirty but you get the idea.
There are spring spacers in the back or it would be lower. LOL

My car topped out at 140 miles per hour, this morning.

damn. same wheels on same color RL. They look good when clean. Ive heard some good things about B&G's also but some of your problem could be your 18's (Im guessing theyre 18's).

They are indeed 18s. If it had smaller tires I wouldn't have been able to make it out of the driveway where I put them on at. LOL

i can see how they could rub i mean thats a gap of only two fingers and depending on the tire size, the gap would be reduced by about an inch on an 18" wheel compared to the stock 17" wheels in Hawian's pics (plus or minus a little). The tires are also more than likely wider than the ones on the stock 17's which would also contribute. I dont think scooby did anything wrong he just has a couple of factors working against him that guys on the stockers dont.

I have a two-finger gap on stock rims, too.

Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.
