Will these rims fit?

I have a 2003 Mach 1. I want to put 17x10.5 or 17x11 rims on all 4 corners. How possible is this. Most sites I visit sell 17x10.5 for the rear and 17x9 for the fronts. Thanks.

Not recommended to put 17x10.5 or 17x11 on the front. You will run into rubbing issues.

Rubbing with what..Brakes, suspension, fenders? Just wondering what would be involved.

You will rub the inner fender on the tire for sure...

9" is more than enough for the front. There is really no benefit to going any wider than that. Anything more would stick outside the fender anyhow and look very redneck/ghetto ish...over all like trash.

yes..that wide on the front would be waaaay too much.

buuuuuut, you would rub the wheel well out the wazoo. My 9.5" wheels in 275's rub at lock. I think with some wheel well modifications it could be done...maybe, but there's probly other stuff too
