PIXXX!!! Rear wheels installed!

So I decided to install my rear wheels today. I didn't have much faith they'd fit without the fender mods I plan to do, and boy was I right, but DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN do they look HOTTNESS!
I can't install the fronts just yet, although I would love to, because the front bumper rubs against the tires and needs to be trimmed about an inch or two, but for now I still went forth with the rears.
After they were installed I must have stood there forever gawking at them from all angles, chub in my pants, I decided to go out for a bit of a spin to see how they rode....LOOOOOL...I didn't even make it a full 360' turn back into my driveway without seeing parts of my rear fender (rusted parts) flying out behind the car. Looks like I'll be sanding and priming it this evening to prevent further rust until I can get it into the shop to have the cancer cut out. All it has to last is about a couple weeks anyway while my turbo goes in, so I think I can manage with the primer look for a while
I have to see now if I can also raise the rear of the car up a bit more, or decide what other options I have because even with the fender mods I think I'd like my ride to have some gap between the fender and wheels for drivability sake. The wheels are big enough it looks good still anyway
