I get asked a lot, so I figured I would just post in here to end the countless questions :lol:

Cartel Lacey's:
-17x4 w/2" BS 205/50r17 Douglas All-season. $58 a piece at walmart!
-15x9 w/4" BS 275/60r15 Car isn't notched. Just had the fender lip massaged with a baseball bat.

Yes, they were very expensive. But so worth it...
