I think it may but why spend the extra money on a bigger rim?

What you mean? Is it a big difference 17 to 18? It's just I'm getting a set of 18x10 blk bullittwheels for $300. I think that's a good deal?

Geez, I rub with 17x8.5 with 245/45/17s at full lock up front. I can only imagine 18x10s.

But should I get them and just buy new ones later? It's 300 for 4 wheels. I think they have tires on them but prob not good ones.

Yeah 10 inches is really wide on the front. AMerican muscle only sells 10 inches for the rear.

They do rub I had that problem on mine stock suspension. 9's worked on mine plus if you do plan on slamming it you'd have to go smaller anyways.

No they will stick out and you will have rubbing issues.

The will only stick out if the back spacing is terrible. I meant by my early question why go 2 inches wider in the front when you can do a 8 or a 9 and have no problems.
