    Are those the largest tires put on an SVO so far?
    They look good!

    I spent more money adjusting the front to fit the wheels right than I paid for the wheels........ go figure

    Yeah, don't go dark and quiet on us now!! Those are some of the best wheels I've seen on an SVO that aren't SVO wheels. The car needs about 1.5" taken out of the suspension to be almost perfect, but I'm sure that's in the works. Perhaps that's what you're doing now, instead of answering this thread. ;-)

    I'm gonna go on a limb... I'm guessing he used Fox A-Arms, SN95 spindle, hub, etc. Otherwise, using all SN95 will surely make them stick out... Where did he go?

    He and his wife had a child. He also sold all his SVOs but he is on FaceBook so I'll let him know you guys have questions. I'm sure he'll be happy to help out.

    Hey all, I am the one who purchased this car from Troy. I am just now getting around to working on it. I have to tell you the 18x9 wheels look great but they do not work with this setup. This car has a abbreviated turning radius from the inside of the rim hitting the control arms. The backspacing on the mags is 6.5". I bought a wheel rite tool from Jegs that measures the backspacing requirements of your suspension. Anyway, it shows that this setup needs 5" of backspacing. Since that is the case I checked if there was the same style wheel with the 5" backspacing and maybe 8" wide. No luck. I will end up checking on aftermarket LCAs or modifying the existing ones. I tried some 05 mustang wheels that are 17x8 with 6" backspacing and they hit as well. So, stay tuned. I would not run this setup without some careful planning on wheels size and backspacing. Any questions feel free to give me a call at 509-842-8111. Happy Holidays everyone.....

    I was checking this frontend out a bit more today and also found out the 18x9 tire/rim hits the k-member. The 17x8 05 mustang wheels may work with a small spacer. I will need to put a tire on one of the rims to check it out. Stay tuned.

    The stock Ford 05 17x8 Bullitt wheels I put on fit, no mods, no suspension clearance issues. I made up a set of 1/4" spacers so my center caps would clear the dust covers.
