Weld alumastar 17x4.5 fronts

I want to do something different. Has anybody ever seen these used as front wheels?

They're not cheap but I really think they'd be worth it. I'm guessing 1.75 on the backspace ..... Please get em and post pictures to confirm how great they'd look!

Honestly I'm not positive on that. I think my pro stars 15x3.5 have that offset and they won't fit on my car with out a spacer and that's with the ls1 12" setup. The rotors actually push the tire away from the caliper about a 1/4" . The caliper hitting the wheel is the issue. A 1/4" spacer might work but I don't believe it's nhra legal to run spacers.

These are Weld Alumastar's, 15 x 3.5 with 2.25" backspace. I'm using Wilwood brakes, no clearance problems...
