Im guessing this hasn't been done with our cars since its not on the wheel and tire combo chart. The reason I'm asking is because my brother has a set of these rims sitting in the basement that he said I could have but I'm not quite sure if they would fit or not even with the right tire combo..


Does anyone have any insight on this? Too big of a rim? I just want to make sure.

The 8.5 with a 35mm offset should work ok, but the 19's are going to look huge. 18" wheels are the largest I would ever run, and a lot of people (including myself) think 16" or 17" are optimal with our little wheel wells.

Yeah I thought they would be too huge. But hey, who can say no to free rims? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hsugh.gif

I forgot you had those 19's FCR. I remember seeing pics now though. Now the OP knows what they'll look like, and the specs are almost identical.

16's on these cars look perfect. Better tire selection with 17's though.

Quoting xaisomboun:
Thanks for the pic FCR! And wow I see why 19's are way too big... Welp time to scratch that idea..



Mount them and see how they look. Never know until you see how it looks.

I like the look of 17's with a fat tire. I have 255/40/17 and I like it a lot. 245/40/17 is good too.
