Woohoo!! They finally arrived.

Today, after 6 weeks of waiting, I am installing my custom ordered 18" American Racing Torq Thrust II's.

I'll try and post pictures later today!

Disclaimer: These wheels are definitely not a rice accessory since they are for RWD car's only!!:cool:

18's on a Fleetwood huh. What kind of tires you planning?
I used 245/55 18 BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KDWS. At $85.00 ea (Tirerack), that made the price of ordering the Torq Thrusts in custom size a little easier on the pocket book.

With the 4.75" back space there is about 1/8" clearance on the side skirt plastic. At some angles I can hear it rub. It also rubs on my HO front sway bar at extreme steering locks.

Now I need to paint the front caliper and paint or even chrome the rear drum.

Thanks.

It's going to take a little while to adjust to the new look. I was just starting to like the way it looked lowered with the stock wheels.

Maybe I need just some white walls.:D

Sweeeet! How much did you drop it Saint?
I used some low mileage (5000 miles) factory '95 Impalla SS springs I bought off of E-Bay. But I didn't measure it before I lowered it. Sorry. :halo:

Now, THAT looks GOOD!

I apologize for my earlier sarcasm.

Classy look, dude!:thumbsup:
