Just ordered these..15 x 8 -3. Doubt I will keep the faces blue but have a long enough wait to figure out what color to go with.

these wheels are nice but made for a 4x4. the center holes are so big, you can drive another 521 through them. But hey there blue.

Then he can do the klotz brake kit with no machining to the hubs. Win.

Or in your case push/trailer your 521 through them.

Still needs more lower. Or bigger rubber.

Yeah just not sure how to go lower? Saw a 521 on instagram with the same size wheels and 205/50s but they just look too tall IMHO.

I can reindex another notch and get bigger blocks (3 to 4”) in the rear but not sure if that detrimental? Or can I reindex and do 720 4x4 leaf springs in the rear?

I run 195/65R15 on K5s.

One notch/adjust to the front.
Removed a couple leaf with 3 "blocks in the back.

Rides good for what it is and there is almost no gap/rubbing.
