Rims for my fox!!

Im looking at some fr500's for my fox or something else really nice.. What size rim and tire should I get to fill my wheel well? I want to have a nice set of rims for car shows. Also what rims do you guys like?

I fit a 305 with my quad shocks off, currently have 275-45-17 with them on and have no rubbing issues.

Fr500's would look good with a staggered fitment. I would go with 17" wheels.

Did it rub in the rear with the 305?? I have stock 225 on my 92 and I need some more rubber with my h/c/I I recently did. I have fr500 on my 01 with 315 rear and 275 front and would love to put them on my fox

Not with the 305, we were test fitting them on my car for my friends car. Loved the way it looked, can't remember the back spacing on the wheels though.

I looked them up once years ago, but I have forgotten what they are called.
I do remember that they were very expensive though, so maybe they were bimmer wheels.

I found these on American Muscle
Not exactly the same but very similar. You would have to convert to 5-lug though.
I think they'd look great on there.
