Re: Wheels

Re: Wheels

Yeah I know about the price of widening them and it's not worth it, much cheaper to buy new rims, I contacted american muscle and they said they won't be getting 17x10 for a few months.

Re: Wheels

at least you can rotate with 17x9s all around and with spacers you can stick the rear out a bit and you wont notice the difference really

Re: Wheels

Have you thought of running 18x10 in the back?

Re: Wheels

I have thought about it, but the car wouldn't set correctly then, and with it lowered there would be alot of weight being transfered to the front.

Re: Wheels

the overall height of the car/tire will not be changed by using an 18 inch rim vs 17 if you buy the correct size tire. The tire will be .5 inches shorter sidewall (top/bottom) to make up the difference so you wont notice any difference there.

visually the sidewall being smaller in the back vs front would throw me off, it should be the opposite if anything lol
