Bill, i use 16' nissan 300zx wheels. they work perfect with a little grinding of the rear caliper. its very easy to do. you can find these rims cheap and they are very light. if you go this route just call me and i can grind down your calipers for you. it only took me maybe 5 minutes to do mine, Rick.

16" Bogarts here w/spacers - swing by S NJ sometime ... if we ever get some nice weather, you can try them on...so to speak.

If your going to buy 16" wheels you might as well get the CCW's so you can have matching skinnies for the front.

Matching wheels are good for at least 3 tenths:D

Jay, you running the Tilton this year?

Thanx for the compliment.

You need the spacers to clear the calipers, it locates the caliper into the larger inner diameter portion of the wheel. You know how on the inside of wheels the inner diameter decreases toward the face? You can use 3mm spacers on stock studs. I wouldn't recomend any thicker.

You could always convert to NA rear brakes which would eliminate the need for spacers (my setup:D )

2003 Mustang 6cyl rims ( they are polished 5 star) fit right on perfectly with the turbo brakes. Clears everything .no mods required. Just bolt right on and i believe they are 16 x 9. Just so you guys know :) Can run 26 x 11.5 et street.
