Thanks, they are 15" aluminum Ultra wheels, type 164. The front caps required minor modification but I like the look of them not sticking out a foot past the rim like the stockers.

Yes, great price, and lightweight to boot!

I have been repairing the exhaust along the way, the last piece was the rust out tail pipe that was rotted to the bend, a little bit of pipe and a dual tip I had sitting around the shop was a quick fix that cleaned up the sound and exhaust that found its way into the cabin.
