You are going to need a LOT of work to get them to fit on a wagon. I don't think rolling/pulling will be enough.

FYI...you should buy stuff you know will fit before you buy it.

+1 - Rolling, pulling, camber bolts and who knows what else. I think even with 245's you're going to have many headaches.

Seems like you know there will be a lot of work involved, so I say go for it. Try searching around some, I know I've seen a good amount of people squeeze huge wheels and tires onto wagons before (I stuck with a modest 18x7.5 with 225's). There used to be that thread 'church of aggressive fitament', might be a good resource.

i have been all through it... and i have looked around... just wanted to see what some people had to say... most guys with aggressive are on coil overs and i want to be different and do it on springs... to see if i can help out all the people who aren't so fortunate to be able to buy coil overs

Funny thing is, unless you track the car regularly, there is 0 need for coilovers. At least you got springs on me...I'm still riding stock

That's like find a pair of shoes you really like, for an incredible deal, but are 4 sizes too small. Bah! I'll just cut my toes off!

You got a great deal, but are going to have to spend $$ to get them to fit.

This guy may be able to assist you:

If he can fit 18x10's, I'm sure your setup will work.
