Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone has 9.5in on the rear of an EF/EL? Im looking at widening my wheel and i think i'll need to lip the guards. Has anyone gone wider? They are on 17's and the car is on superlows.

Thanks

Im talking of the wheel itself. Im looking at a width of 9.5inches and putting 265s or 275s if they fit. Its currently only got 8inch with 235s so just changing the outer dish on the back wheels to fill the back up. I think the guards may just need rolling and itll be fine but just seeing if anybody has actually fit wider?

Cheers

I know it's not an EF/L but I had -12 18x10's under my NC. With absolutely no hassles.

Cheers guys, thanks for the info! I've ordered the 3.5in outer dish to make it a 9.5in wheel. I think i'll go with 265 for now.

Should be good! I've got 18x10's on the rear of my NC, and I'm considering going to 18x11!

As a matter of interest what would the offset be on a 9.5" wheel, as above, if you weren't running spacers?
