Play around here. Compare your stock size with your new rim size. Try to get it as close to the stock size as you can. The little bit I played with it, it looks like you can fit a "DUB" on there.

205 30 20 is as near perfect as i could get. But 225 30 20 will work and be a little wider for ya too. It will be like rolling on rubber bands tho, your sidewall is only like 2"

I think the biggest that has been fit so far that we know of is Jonnie Williams...He's got the Katana 19" wheels if I remember correctly, eventually you'd have to start rolling the fenders, and the size would become really off, but if you really wanted to and didn't care about that, you could probably put 24s with the proper mods...

Most dubs are 8.5" wide, there's a select few that might be 8", but even that is asking for trouble

hhmm well i just wanted some major "bling bling"  :D so i want the biggest i can go, but should i just stick with 18's or should iventure about to 19's? 20's would probably be impossoible..?

18's can be done without any major modifications, with 19's and 20's you are looking at spacers, fender rolling, etc.
