Michael, wow, lots of rubber! Do you have a shot from the rear? What size are your tires? How is the steering feel and weight?

Ed: I'm running 195/65/15 on a 7" in front with the early Fuch 7R offset & 215/60/15 on a 7" in rear with the late 7" Fuch offset. I had to pie the rear fenders. I did however run the 195/65/15 front and rear on 6" cookie cutters without mods th the body. Mike

If memory serves, in 2014 when I asked, the centers were forged and the outers were spun. The website now says they are "100% forged Aluminum construction". That may explain the big price increase.

Does that mean the outers are not welded to the centers?
