My New Boss On RTR Wheels with 285/40/19 Rears

Very nice, congratulations.
 
thx....now i just have to figure out which springs will lower the car and give me the same rake...im looking at the Eibach Pro Kit cuz i had those on my 2011 GT and loved the stance but for some reason the specs show that it wont lower a Boss as much as a standard GT so its got me all confused...
 
just lowered it on Eibach Pro Kit...love the new stance, ride quality is perfect and maintains a bit of a rake...just how i imagined it would be.

id say it lowered the front about 1/4" and the rear an inch....love the ride, still firm and precise, less body roll,havent done any kinda hard braking as of yet but i think overall they are exactly what i was hoping for....
 
Would you post a pic of the rubber from a rear view of the Boss. Interested to see how much wider your tires are over OEM.

Thanks

dont have a direct rear low shot of them on the boss as of yet but here they are on the vert that i traded in...same rear lower fascia same rim/tire combo with the 285 rears...looks identical to the pic below.

Those wheels look great... especiallly after you lowered it, great stance. I've been going back in forth about a wheel choice for myself... Either RTR or Forgestar F14's or just maybe a set of boss 302s wheels, my car is also a 2012 PW... Would really like to have a set of Forgeline's but the price for those really hurt... ::)

Yeah the Forgeline wheels are expensive. Check out CCW wheels for something similar that only cost a leg vs. an arm and a leg. :D

The 302S wheels look really sharp on PW.
