I was a lil rusty with the camera it had been about 4 months since I had shot anything, cause all I do anymore is work (72hrs a week) soo sorry about the pic quality!! I will get better ones soon, just need to get back in the groove and do a shoot during the day soo I dont have to worry about lighting!!

Enjoy!

I wouldn't call this "stretched" - you're not stuffing too much tire onto a narrow rim, that's for sure, but it looks to me like the bead is still inside the width of the shoulder, so you've just got a good geometry for the sidewall.

It's a good look...go t me intereste d in these wheels now.

I like the size and offset.  Thy puts it within 5mm of oem backspaci ng so I approve.  :thumbup:

I like a max tire setup though, so I'd prefer to see 225's on there but I know how hard it is to get a decent 8" wide wheel under an EF.

How much camber are you running front and rear?
