Thanks everyone! the wheels are Aero Race Wheels (same as nascar wheels haha) and they are 13x7, with 2" backspacing in the rear and 3" up front, i like the look of a bigger lip in the rear :D


i added a couple more pics! i realized i didnt even put a pic of the rear end lol


Might give it a go on my spare 610 x member.


its actually pretty simple if you have some fabrication skills, it took me probably 30 min to build a brace, cut it, and reweld it.
