Dusty,

The mirrors are from The Roadster Factory. They look great, but I can't see anything out of them smiling smiley Actually, if you are tall enough ( > 5'10" ) then you'll be able to see out fo the Driver's mirror ok. I can hardly even make out the passenger mirror itself, so seeing anything out of it is totally out of the question.

a 4 inch convex mirror would do wonders, it's too bad I can't find any in that size. I had a stick on 3.5 inch on it and while it worked ok it just looked tacky to me.

In reply to # 3514152 by Burrogs I'm running 17x8 inch wheels up front (225/45/17) and 17x9.5 (255/40/17) out back with Bridgestone RE71R tires. No rubbing issues, even at full lock.

Offset?

I have a set of "California Mirrors" now and cannot see anything either. I don't drive alot with the top up but when I do it would be nice to see.

Carl,

Checked the receipt, says fronts have 4 1/2 inch backspace, and rears have 5 1/2 inch backspace.

Hope that helps!

Matt
