[attachmentid=27758][attachmentid=27759]

For Sale 5 - (yes 5!) - ASA JH8 wheels. silver with machined lip, 18" x 7.5", Offset = 40mm, 5x108mm bolt pattern.

A stock wheel is 16" x 6", offset of 45mm, so these wheels will be 1.5" wider than stock or 3/4" each direction. .75" x 25.4mm (1 inch in mm) = 19 mm plus the 5mm you gain from the offset change (45 to 40) = total gain of 24mm or .9"

Said another way, these wheels will stick out .9 inches further than stock, which if you notice is perfect on a taurus.

Stock tire diameter is 26.1", so I reccommend 225 /45 /18 tires which have a diameter of either 25.9" or 26" depending on the brand.

These wheels where mounted on a volvo (also 5x108) for about 2 weeks until the guy went with black wheels. The 5th wheel has never had a tire mounted. These wheels are truly like new. No dings or curb rash. I gurantee them to be straight.

$550 for the set plus actual shipping (prob around $20 - $25 each). I will take paypal if you add 3% for paypal fees. Email me or call if you are interested [email protected] or 405-834-9590

Just to give any potentional buyers an idea of how these wheels might look on a Taurus, these are basically the silver version of mine. They're a different brand but the dimensions and offset are the same. Figure each wheel is 1.5" wider than stock = roughly 6" extra tire on the ground... it's like having another wheel on the car. Handling is like 1,000,000 times better.

Buy these, put some grippy tires on them and you will not be disappointed.
