    Hi Scott, the wheels are 26" Intro Vista II. The fronts are 26 X 9 and the rears are 26 X 10 Staggered offset. The rear lip is 3" the front is 2". That was the deepest I could go without having to modify anything besides the suspension (i.e. lowering) of course. I am sorry but I don't know the exact offset. I'd have to call out to SoCal to double check.

    I requested for the full polish option so that the subsequent powder coat operation would be easier and look better than non-polished. Masking was time consuming but worth the extra effort. I am very pleased with the results and am glad that I chose the Intros.

    That is odd. Looks like the “stock” picture is in reverse, as the gas cap is on what appears to be the passenger side. I suppose the badging gives it away too.

    The bigger thicker sway bars tighten up your suspension and ride. The difference is most noticeable on tight corners or bends such as an on ramp or an off ramp highway exit. It limits body roll thus keeping better tire to road traction. On the SS and the Infiniti, I can get on or off the highway at some amount "theoretically" higher than the posted speed limit without any issues.

    On the 2005 Escalade I installed Eibach sway bars. The did the job. Definitely like and recommend the Hotchkis product line.

    The Infniti sway bar sits a little different than on the SS and the truck / SUV

    Interesting…
    I just purchased the Norco 2/4 lowering kit so this may be something I look into after making that suspension change. Thank you for the information.

    Yes sir, you are welcome. Not an immediate must have but a nice worthwhile upgrade. You can physically tell the difference between the aftermarket sway bars versus stock. Post some pics of your new look when you get it done. Thanks.
