I'm interested in photos of fat rear wheels, particularly on EF/EL models.
I'm looking into 9.5" wide 18" rims for the rear of my EF (8" wide for the front) and have noticed a few ppl have done this on the forums.

So post those photos away :D

The tyre size would be 10", but they could still be on an 8-9" wide rim.
I'll have a look for some pics of the rear tyres onmine, but i don't think i've really taken any of that. I've got the same as Trikee, 10" on the back.

Lookin' great guys!

Anyone had to roll/flare their rear guards with these wider rims?

Or can they be placed closer inwards?

Mine scrub at the moment when i have a couple of people in the back and i go over bumps. Its on superlows with 2 subs in the boot though. I'm gonna eventually roll the guards. The fronts seem to scrub the guards more though.
