about 1.5" theyre very solid - also behind is painted black from the face back... may explain the 'thin' look.

thay look pretty good... but would make the wheels look larger by dropping the car a lil... and get a set of clear quater panel indicators... otherwise... looks good over all... 8-)

Don't get in an accident, if it was your fault or not you could get knocked back due to adaptors being illegal.

Only that "most" cops are dumb when it comes to modifications and can not think for themselves (Told to defect for stupid things) you will probably get away with the adaptors, I have seen cops defect someone for a intercooler (factory turbocharged vehicle, shiny intercooler) and then let someone drive off with adaptors or spacers which are clear to see without having to remove the wheels.

i dont like personally. but so what? the whole point of car personalization is just that- what YOU like for your car. dont let anyone knock you for what choices you make for your car.
