Widest is generally considered to be 17x9 in the rear 17x8 in the front

I'd like to know also. Looking into getting 17x10 rears through American Muscle. I believe quad shocks need to be removed for clearance but not sure. Another thing, they recomend 275/40-17 but I think they'd be too stretched out... I think 295/40R-17 would be ideal but not sure if they'd fit. Anybody out here know for sure?

Bet ur fox has a nice stance. I don't wanna lower my fox so I don't think I'll need to roll my fenders unless I get too wide of tires. Wheels are next on my buying list.

I'm thinking of running 15x8 with 5 1/2 back spacing on the rear with 275/60/15 but I'm worried about the rubbing the tailpipes

I'm lowered 2.25" with 17x9 wheels all the way around and 275/40 in the back. I have no rubbing issues out of the tires and my front wheels only rub the control arms at full lock.
