Re: widest wheels

an 11 or maybe even an 11.5 will work if you remove your quad shock, its all about the backspacing, it may require fenders to be rolled if you really push the limits.

Re: widest wheels

Run some 8s 8.5s in the front.

Removing the quad shock would prolly give you some play in the rear end if I had to guess, it's not really a shock, more like a stabilizer.

So ya'll figure that with those wheels i can put a 315 on the back of my 94 gt (dont wanna remove the quad shock that thing helps hook up like crazy)? Or do i have to remove the quad shock to do it? Ill post off set and what not because i have to "special order" the rims and tires and there not returnable once shipped to me. I really want over 300 wide so if i can get 305 im happy if 315 ill be extatic!

Re: widest wheels

can I ask why the 18s? highly consider looking at a 17 simply for the cost of replacing tires when the times will come. Just my .02

and those wheels are bea UTIFUL!

Re: widest wheels

I just ordered the ARE black torque thrusts for my 96 Cobra, i went 17x9 +24mm and 17x10.5 +28 i'm fitting the 245/45/17 and 275/40/17 ,, your'e absolutely right Topless, much more economical and availible.

@Hawk, Have you seen the tires availble in the sizes you list? and the recomended rim sizes? BIG BUCKS! i'm really curious to see how that works out for you as for getting them under the car without modifying or how much and what you have to modify.
