I really like the look with those wheels and tires. What size tires did you use Front/Rear.

What wheels are those? and what is the back spacing, did you have to use any spacers?

Thanks croz98gt for the comments.

The tires are - Front - Nitto 555's 255/45/18 (same as stock size)
Back Tires - Toyo Proxes TQ 315/35/18 (new drag radial)
Both tires are slick surface tires on the sides and do not have any of the armorall sling grove holders like our stock F1's have (you know when you armorall your tires, then drive and it slings it all over the side of your car).

The wheels are CCW SP500 9.5" front wide and 11" back wide (both 18" wheels). The offset for the front is same as stock at 45mm. The offset for the rear is 52mm. No spacers are used or needed with these wheels.

I cant say enough about the CCW wheels and the people there. I ordered them on a Friday and they custom made the wheels and had them to me the next week with tires mounted.
