rims brand unknown...staggered
bought rims with tires for 500 cash...both front and rear tires are brand new
achilles tires looks like cheaply made tires and falken fk 452 are pretty good
when i bought the rims guy mentioned that he had the tires/rims balanced so i took his word for it...looks like computer balance is my next step
rear lug bolts are very good condition and torgued properly
bushings are ok front and rear
Tire size seems about right, the front tires I'm weary of since it's an off-brand. 500 dollars for rims and tires? I'd be more concerned about the rims at that point since it's pretty hard to find a decent looking wheel that can support the weight of our cars for that little money, and esp. one that is the right size (20x9 and 20x10).

You mentioned the spacers, did you buy the extended rear lug bolts with those spacers? Also have you tried taking them off? Another member had HORRID vibrations with the spacers on and once they were taken off, the problem was resolved!
