97 2dr Tahoe

In May of 2016 I purchased my 2wd Tahoe for a daily driver. I did a Belltech 794SP and some cheap 22's. I drove it a few times and then parked. I decided in March that I was going to keep it so I felt it was time to make it more presentable.

Re: 97 2dr Tahoe

So I had a set of Intro wheels made and after the test fit I didn't like how they fit. I gave them the wrong back spacing info so they sit flush with my fenders and I won't be able to tuck them if I decide to bag it. So I ordered a another set..... Now another 10-12 week wait. :-(

Top pic is what I have.
Bottom is what I ordered.

Re: 97 2dr Tahoe

Nice looking wheels. The color you painted looks really good. I have never seen that color, least not on a Tahoe.

Thank you. It's a 2016/17 Jeep/Chrysler Dodge color.
Luxury Brown Pearlcoat is the color and the painter added red pearl.
It really pops when the sun hits it.

What was the backspace front/rear you had before and what did you change it to front/rear?

Tahoe looks awesome, btw!
