you sure? i could have sworn a a book said that backspacing was 5.95 or
5.85? even so does .10 +/- even matter?

i don't think i want to roll the lips. i think 17x8's will fit.what size
tire usually goes on a 8" wide rim? 245? 255? and also since going to a
bigger 17" inch rim, doesn't the series of the tire need to go down to 45
to maintain the same outer diameter of the whole wheel?

can;t wait to see how it turns out take some pictures while you are
building it also, you could make it into a How To...
hey do you have after market rims? if not. what style rims do you think
would look good on a SVO? have you seen these rims before:
Enkie Wung Guns
Steeda BBS style
Saleen wire mesh
or the racing tuners(kinda look like the Steeda's.

Charcoal Grey '86 SVO which needs a paint job bad!
2 Chambered Flowmasters, 2 1/2" Mac Tail pipes(Is it me or does MAC SUCK)
