Help fast!

Hey guys I know that they say you shouldn't put 10 inch wide tires in the front, but on AM they have a set of rims on sale that I like and they only have 18x10s. And I looked around everywhere for 18x9s in the front and no one has them unless you want to buy a set of 4. The rims are on close out and thus AM doesn't even have 18x9. Let me know if you think I can pull it off. Thanks. Attachment 192246

I never tried my 18X10s but Ihave test fit my 17X10.5s on the front before and they didn't fit. The brake caliper was hitting the spokes of the wheel.

For the most part an 18X9 is the biggest you can go without running into clearance issues. You could run a spacer, but the wheel will stick out past the fender and look pretty bad.

Cobra - PM received and replied and I'm sorry I didn't catch this earlier. As I said previously there's really no way that I'll suggest shooting for them as I don't think the 10's would clear up front. If there's any other style that you're after don't hesitate to drop me a line again and I'm happy to get you set up with a quote.

Help fast!

This is 18x10 up front with a 285/35-18. It rubbed the sway bar on full lock and barely cleared the fender with -1.7 degrees of camber.

I wouldn't unless the car is a track car that never sees full lock because your car being a 97 instead of new edge has even less space up front.
