Thank you! I think I'll go with 205/45. Would 205/40/16 be ok or does it look funny?

Yo Mystikal

Changed my mind on the work wheels, going for the ccw lm20s with the brushed steel face look imo looks 10 folds better. Can i still run 16x8 f 16x9 r +20 offset or different story ?

Thanks

If I wanted to run 16x8 et15 up front and 16x9 et18 in the rear, with 5mm spacer up front and 8mm in the rear would I sit relatively flush? If not what spacers should I go with? Also what tire size would you suggest for a little stretch at those sizes? Thanks.

Those offsets are so close to perfect that I wouldn't put any spacers on. You will very likely have vibration issues with a 5/8 setup anyway (no lip for the wheel to sit on, very difficult to center the wheel). 205/45 front 215/45 rear would be ideal.

Early Vert

Hey I am looking at 15" 8.5 with et17.. I believe the bore is 73.1.

i was thinking 215-225/50's on my early model Vert with stock suspension. I like the poke look so if possible I would push them out more.

Yes I am a newb. Any thoughts? advice?

cheers Canucks
