rim size

found this on web today and kinda like them:

18" Work Wheels - need it gone today - Mississauga / Peel Region Tires, Rims For Sale - Kijiji Mississauga / Peel Region Canada.

was wondering what you guys think about 8.5" on the front and the 9.5 in the rear. wasnt sure if it would be to big.

Re: rim size

It's going to need more then a roll to make that work in a 9.5. It can be done but it's how far do you want to go with it.

Re: rim size

9.5 isn't really that extreme with a +45.. I'm sure you'll rub on the inside unless you stretch tires. I'm running 9 wide with a +25 offset.

Re: rim size

I have my fenders rolled and I have 17x8 +35 I'm also dropped 1.75 in the front and 1.5 in the back. I rub only when there's a big bump or more then 2 people in my car.

You're on 17's though, these are 18's. That's a different ball game altogether.
