Wheel fitment 2010-2013

Looking at wheels for future purchase, RTR wheel package has 4 19x9.5 wheels while others have 8.5 for the front. If you look on AM at individual wheels, the 9.5" says rear fitment only. Does anyone have experience putting the 9.5" on the front anyways (as in buying 4 9.5" wheels instead of a staggered package)?

No they're not. They're 9.0" wide. You'll run into fitment issues running wider than 9.0" due to 99% of the offsets are designed for rear fitment only. You'll have to get a custom offset or use a 3 piece wheel. They say rear only for a reason.

So the RTR are a custom offset? Are they different offset than the "rear only" wheels? I'm not at my computer to look them up is why I ask.

I'm sure the rtr wheels have a different offset for the front and rear.

Just had a chance to look them up. All RTR wheels are the same backspacing and offset( 6.5"( 165mm)). Others like the AMR are 7.14"( 182mm). The offset of the RTR is 33mm(1.3") while the AMR is 48mm(1.9"). Now I know why the others won't fit like the RTRs will. I like the look of staggered wheels but also like the option to be able to rotate my tires.
