9 inch wide i would guess...but yes there are. you can fit a 17x9.5 if you wanted to, i havent seen a useable 18x9 set up yet, itd be pointless to run 225s on a wheels that wide.


for what its worth, try being a little less vague in your posts, that doesnt give us much to work with.

The fronts bolted right up, but the back small part that goes on the door need to be cut and glued onto the main part because it was too long and stuck out when the door was open. Also the rear door needed to be trimmed a bit to close nicely. I also had to trim the lip down in the back in order for the tire to tuck and not rub, plus the rear camber needs to be at least 1.5 degree.

I was thinking I would like to run a set of 235/40R17 90W Falken Azenis RT-615s with a set of like 17x9 wheels. I am pretty new to determining the fitment of wheels/tires. What did you mean when you said it would be pointless to run 225s on 9.5s. I am also planning on putting sedan front fenders/bumper on and rolling my rear fenders. Would this set up work you think? Also, what offset are you thinking?

235/40 is the tire size choice of STX competitors- they are limited to a 8" wheel and the fitment is very good. Lots of 8" choices, several 8.5" as well.

the only reason to run 9"+ rims is if your trying to run 255+ tires and w/ a wagon that will be very (very) difficult w/o some serious "work"- see above
