The real question is "Do YOU like them?" Your car, your decision.

17x10's will stick out an inch and a half on stock fenders. test fit something before you buy.

example:

note that this is a 5lug swap, which widens the track angle by about .5" on each side. the wheels are 17x10 et20 rear 17x8.5 et13 front. i think the fitment is crap, personally.

more pics can be found here:

or in the photobucket album, i suppose.

thanks, yeah I'm not gonna do the 10 inch, that's just nuts.

the lowest I can go is 8.5.........I'll have to go to a rim shop and fit something like it.

If you want to test fit some 9's with low offset shoot me a pm and we can figure something out, although it looks like your quite far away from me.

Hey Dave, those where the ones I was suggesting. They'd look wicked on your Touring, and I think 8.5 will be the perfect size, anything bigger would just look nuts.

I also saw that there was a 'group buy' on Keskin wheels on R3V I believe. But then again, you've got until spring if you want so don't rush into anything!
