Thanks guys, I'll be ordering them soon.

Pascal,
Thanks again. I see what you mean. I'll have to do some checking but the 275s all around on 8.5s option sounds pretty good to me. That's got to look good and stick like glue. P.S. I know I've said it before but you got on phat *** ride!!!!

I guess it's the simple solution for rotation...
275s all around on 8.5 rims, so you won't have the skinny wheels look.
Traction will also be improved.

Since you asked for opinions... The general wheel design isn't bad (I'm sure there's a thousand versions of this wheel out there with minor variations), but they faux multi-piece design, and the 5x4.25/4.5 multiple bolt pattern hub makes me cringe. Get a set of wheels that's designed for your car. Those just make these things look like low-rent ricer (and I tend not to throw that word around much) wheels.

I agree, I don't like the multiple bolt patter either. But I really love the wheels and I cannot find any that look like these without it. I'm pretty picky about the designs and I've looked around a lot and I keep coming back to these. The only other option I had was the Shelby Razors in the grey but IMHO they just don't look as good as these even with the extra holes. But thanks for your opinion.
