Blakkboxer, do you think it'd be too hard to fit the 8.75's +20's? Were you rubbing at all on your setup?

It is hard. I had them. They rub like crazy in the rear @-2.0* camber, even with a full roll. And they poke like crazy in the front unless you do ridiculous camber

Oh I just did them. Other people have used this and they say it holds up fine even months later so I guess we shall see. I just washed the car yesterday and it held up fine but that's all I can say right now. But honestly if I have to touch them up once in a while I don't mind. Just not every week

I would not recommend +20 unless you plan on doing crazy camber, rolling and flares. It is a lot of work just to get it drive able and to the point where all the rubbing doesn't drive you crazy driving.

they should if you have rolled and pulled your fenders. I've got a set of 17x9.75's on my 03...unless you run some really meaty tires for those wheels. like 265's or higher.

Get 225/35-18 tires, that will give you enough stretch and then roll and pull your fenders like crazy!
