    After looking for the right wheel I finally decided on these. They are the Rocket Attack wheels by Rocket Racing. These are 18x8 up front and 18x10 in back. I would have like to go 18x9 up front, but they don't have on with the correct backspace.
    I know this picture isn't the best, but I was too excited to not snap a shot.

            They look good. I like that design. Do you know how much the rear wheels weigh bare?

                  Hi, Joe! Sorry for reviving an old thread. :D
                  How are you liking these wheels after a couple of months? Any rubbing, etc?

                  Do you mind sharing your backspace and tire size? When someone finds something that works, this data is always worth its weight in gold.

                  Also, which rear axle are you running? Any spring offset?

                  Thanks!

                  I'm still liking them and have had zero problems.

                  The fronts are 18x8 with 5.5" back space and Nitto NT05 235/40 tires. I have stock style discs in the front, but will eventually upgrade to the Dr. Diff cobra style, which push the wheel out 3/16-1/4". I should have plenty of room to allow that. No rubbing at all.
                  The rears are 18x10 with 6" of backspace and Nitto NT05 285/35 tires. The rear end is a stock A-body length 8-3/4" and I have the Mopar offset leaf spring hangers and cobra style disc brakes. I did end up trimming the quarter lip about 1/4-3/8" to ensure I wouldn't have any rubbing. There's still probably about 1/2" of lip on the quarters. The stock quarters have a huge lip on them! There's plenty of space between the tire and the leaf spring also. There's enough room to step up to the 245/40 and 295/35, which I will do when these tires wear out.
                  Here's a more current picture and how it is actually sitting today. The picture above was with the mopar circle track springs and no lowering blocks. This is with Hotchkis springs and no lowering blocks. I could actually get it lower by putting it in the top hole of the front spring hanger.
