    I would not go that large, Redman, due to the mounting/dismounting issues, even if they 'might fit'... Check under Calculators on this site and input your wheel data and car data into the calculators and they will give you a great idea if they will work...

    They will work fine if you have the correct width axle.

    The size tire you use will be the most important consideration. I test fitted a wheel/tire I rounded up that was close what I wanted, before I bought wheels for my C4 55. Ended up with 275/40-17 tires on 17 x 9.5 wheels front and rear with a 38+ offset. They fit perfect and have amazing traction with 200 treadwear tires.

    I looked again and 17x8 is the widest in 17". That is why I went to a 18", there is a 18x9.5. I would be happy with a 9" but 9.5" is what is next. I want a little stagger between the front and rear. I am trying to bring the looks towards modern style then the 15" rally's.
