Default New wheels mounted!!

Well, I finally sold the Alcoas. im still going to gave to out of pocket some cash, but at least im getting NEW wheels! I decided to go with Pacer's version of MT classics. They are the exact same wheel for cheaper. I could have bought the MTs on 4wheelparts.com, but by the time I pay for centers and lugs and have them installed, its still gonna cost me about the same as if i got them locally, so i ordered them locally. Anyhow, most of ya'll know what a MT Classic is but here are my Pacer versions:

orered them in 15x8 w/ 3.75 BS. getting the chrome lugs and all. Ill probably end up putting the factory ford chrome center caps in place of the pacer centercaps to make the look more OEM.



persoanlly, they are going to look sick with my XLT chrome grille and LII Tow hooks. now Im going to have to polish the ol tool box to match!

And before anyone says it--NO, IM NOT LIFTING IT. I can , but i dont want the hassle of "having' to buy bigger tires, and worse gas mileage. Sure it looks badass, but i dont want it on my DD.

SCROLL DOWN FOR MOUNTED PICS

I get them on tomorrow! Hopefully on lunch break! Yeah I ordered 15x8s with 3.75 BS. I don't see how I "robbed peter to pay paul". I sold my alcoas fair and square to a guy that is changing the look of his truck to a Level II for a fair price. I did love the Alcoas, but they just weren't wide enough for the stance that I want. Also, I want polished wheels. I've always like shiny wheels but didn't want chrome again (had chrome soft 8s on my 94). I've wanted a set like these for as long as I can remember and I'm finally getting them. To each their own I guess. I know it will look beast with my grille, tow hooks and toolbox (once polished). And they will pop on my red paint.
