Default POssible to run +13

Hey you guys, has anyone ever had luck fitting a 18x9.5 +13 wheel? I know it would take some fender rolling, but is it possible? Thanks!

No, it wouldn't be possible*. They're 65mm further out than stock.

*unless you custom fabricate something to the point where your stock fenders and suspension doesn't even matter in which case anything's possible. Put monster truck tires on if you want.

I so want to see picks of this!

You could technically do it. You would just have to cut up the fenders and run fender flares.

Oh and probably expect short lived wheel bearings and bump steer.

Only way you'd be able to do it is with some sort of wide body kit.

Ok thanks guys for the advice. I kinda figured it would be nearly impossible, but I got a chance to take some TE's off a guy for a steal, and I figured I'd try to get them to work without having to pull my fenders an insane amount. Oh well, next time I guess.

agreed.


at the "I know it would take some fender rolling".
I don't think there's a roller out there that could make these fit.

It would look totally Mexi-style unless you had a crazy widebody kit. You'd kill the hubs too.
