New engine, now new shoes. Pretty much done for now until next year then I'll start tackling the interior.

The new wheels are Ridler 17x8's with BFG 255/45ZR17 tires.

Here's the before:

Nice, which Ridler are those? Kind of hard to see the center due to the angle of the shadow.

Looks really good. Not expensive either. Best bang for buck I think.

A better view of the 695, good choice.
Similar to the Boss 338.

Very nice wheels, What kind of backspacing do they have?

Thanks guys. Big improvement over the old ones I think.

The 17x8 versions come with 4.5" backspacing.
