(4) American Racing 17" wheels with 245/45/17 Nitto NT555 tires, they are t-bird bolt pattern and 17"x7.5". You can see there is some cosmetic feathering on them being 245 tires on a 7.5" rim. Make me an offer. Thanks Scott.

I don't think that's dry rot. I cant tell in the pics, but are you running 255's on them? My Sumitomo's were manufactured a month before I bought them and had cracking in the exact same spots almost right away. 255/45/17 on a 7.5" rim. I think the stress of the wide tread, narrow rim, thin wall, and heavy car does that. I was told by the tire shop that the cracks were just cosmetic. Weather or not that's true, idk. But, ive been running them like that for 3 years now with no issues.

Thanks for the heads up about them possibly being cosmetic and caused by the narrow rim stress, they are 245/45/17's. I too have been driving on them with no issues till I came across a new set of rims that I wanted.

Anyone looking for Mark 8 LCAs, pumpkin or maybe spare wheels? The junkyard I went to today had a pair of Marks that seemed to have all that stuff, but I didn't have the tools to remove it (and without a magnet to check the spares, I wasn't going to gamble on them being steel).

I'll have to see what they're going to charge me before I can give you a price. Right now I'm thinking I'll go get them next Saturday. If you want, I'll give you first dibs.
