I'm new to the forum so i guess this is the best time to start posting.
I just installed 16x7 American Racing AR907's wrapped in Firestone Winterforce tires. The back spacing is different from stock pushing the wheels out a bit so i also installed cheap rally armor mud flaps.
Tell me what ya think.

Nice! Looks a hell of a lot better than my steelies with ugly hub caps haha.

Curious to see what the snow/ice buildup will be like with the 16 inch rims. I decided to go with 17's for winter because I didn't like how much clearance (maybe 3mm) there was between the caliper and rim.

Thanks guys. I'm really curious to see how it handles the snow. These tires are pretty terrible when it comes to directional stability but i had a set of these tires on my old 2wd S10 and that thing plowed through the snow.

I am up in the snow now and they said you need chains or go at your risk. So far all is good on stock tires but I will be leaving soon so that will be the test

I need to be doing this. Probably next winter. Car handles fine on the stock rims and tires in the snow so far but we haven't had too much so far this winter.
