Who is running a 17" or bigger wheel


Recommended Posts

Have you tried searching the forum? You'll find quite a few who are running 17" and larger wheels. It seems like there's one thread titled something like "Show your wheels". You'll also find lots of wheel/tire pictures.

Love the look here! Would you mind sharing the details on the B/S and O/S as well as the tire size?

All stock suspension? Any rubbing issues? Thanks!

They are US Mags Bandits rims, front 18x8, 4.5 back spacing, rear 18x9 5.25 back spacing. Tires are Nitto extreme nt555, frt 245/45/18 and rear 285/40/18. Suspension on the front is stock wiith 1" lowering coils and rear is stock leafs. No rubbing issues. In the rear there is room to go wider with more back spacing. Hope this helps. Ryan

17X8 for me. I think many different wheels look great on our cars. It’s very hard to choose.  I put some Bullitts from the late 90s/early 2000s on mine as placeholders during the build because they were very cheap on craigslist. Once I painted the car I kinda liked them so I just left them. If I decided to stop being cheap I’d probably get these:

I’d personally get 17s for the front and 18s for the rear if buying new.
