Looking to get low pros and up Rim size any specs?

Postby kellu » Thu Jan 24, 2013 3:15 pm

Ok so basically I want to go the low and wide route with my beretta (not cambering because it looks dumb IMO) I was wondering how far I could go up in rim size from stock rims and tires without rubbing ect. I do plan on doing a 1 - 2 inch drop after I get the invader body kit as well.

Well it all depends on what width you go with... Increasing the rim diameter if you get the proper tire size (24.9in diameter) along with the right width and rim offset you should not have any rubbing issues. If you are increasing the diameter of the tire then yes you will run into problems, as well as changing to a more positive offset you will rub... My old -35mm offset rims will scuff the rear quarter panel when the rear suspension is a full compression, and they are 7" wide rims. So when going wider you will have more problems in the rear than you will in the front. I now run -40mm offset, stock is -42mm

Jon has got it. Keep the tire diameter the same and offset and width close and you'll be ok. 225/45/17 is what I run, but 225/40/18 should be ok.

Oh man here we go.

If you want big rims like 19's and up get a monte carlo or grand prix. They fit the wheels a lot better.

If you want to go with a performance setup then your going to want something along the lines of 17x8 40-45 offset. You can run a 235/40 or a 245/40 with some work. Get rid of the fender liners and roll the fenders some. I had 235/45 fitting fine at one point.

The fronts will fit more meat than the rear generally unless you use a backwards stagger.
