I bought a set of XLR rims and tires 18 x 8 with 235/50/18 with 230 mileson them. They shipped out of cali on the 13th got 1 on the 20th the other 3 tracking #'s showed them in Il then on the 22nd I tracked them again and they are back in cali and not due to be delivered till 27th I hate when UPS screws up (left them on the train) then don't make the effort to speed them up. I hope that a extra week in the box is not to hard on them. On the other hand I can't wait to test fit this one on my 96 Fleetwood Brougham I think they are gonig to look awesome!!! Just got the Impala SS front springs installed a few weekends ago dropped the front from 28 3/4" (measured from the ground to center of wheelwell) to 26 3/4". I haven't had time to install the rear springs I think I will wait till after I install the rims because I think that I like the rake that it has now and I'm afraid that it will sit level or lower in the back with the Impala SS springs. I know that it will take a adapter to make the rims fit going from the 5 on 5 Fleetwood bolt pattern to the 5 on 4.75 XLR bolt pattern and they will need to be about 2" thick. After I double check the thickness of the adapter needed I'll get them ordered.

Im kinda skeptic about spacers but that wheel will look nice on there...
Keep us posted!!!

Make sure the spacers/adapters you get are hubcentric, the non-hubcentric models are unsafe IMO.

I will subscribe to this topic too :worship:
