help/advice

i want to get bullitt wheels very soon been wanting them for a while now finally been able to save up. i am thinking about getting deep dish in the rear. i have 17 inch tires now so my question is would i be able to keep the tires even with the deep dish. i dont want to get new tires because it will just set me back even more and i love my tires they are very good. also i want to get slp's because its about time and shes too quiet lol. so what do you guys think i should do first and can you help me with the above question? thanks

A deep dish usually means it's a 10"-10.5" rim Sooo no you would have to get new tires for the rear.

You could stretch them and make them fit on a 17X9 but ideally you would put them on a 17X8
