Any rim 7" - 8" (you can get 9" under the rear but check first) with a 114.3 PCD with a 0mm to +6mm offset.

a 245 wide tyre goes nicely over a 8" rim.. much wider and you start getting bulging sidewalls

you might be able to find a 255 wide tyre and get away with it but imo 265 or 275 on 8" rim looks wrong..

a 9" rim will take 265 or 275 without looking silly..

why do you want such a wide tyre??

And they don't rub on the upright? 215 60 16's do!

Just out of interest, any ideas on how high an offset can be run with a 9" wheel on the front before fouling the upright?

Haven't really had a chance to check what sort of clearance there is to make use of up front, but thought you might know as you seem to know your width/offset fitments quite well :wink:

Been looking at a few wheel combo's recently, namely Varrstoen ES2's (staggered fitment 9" front/9.5" rear) in +12 offset. Offset calculator shows it will have a little more poke to fill the guards a bit nicer, but would also sit in a little bit more than my current 8" +6 wheels. Would probably end up using a 5mm slip-on spacer front and rear to close up the tyre wall to guard gap if I got these wheels anyway.

19x9 +12 will clear by about 4mm. A mate has 19x8.5 +15 and has 8mm clearance from the tyre to the upright. I had 18x8.5 -4 and I had 30mm clearance to the upright.

Thats really interesting and quite handy to know!

I've been looking at heaps of rims that are 9" up front at +12 but have been worried about whether they'd fit or not.

I've used willtheyfit.com or something like that and while its fairly accurate, I was still a bit iffy.

Thanks for clearing that up 8-)

Awesome to hear! Cheers for the info dude, it's a massive help! Looks like there is plenty of wheel options to choose from now after hearing that :)

Yep plenty of options. I'm going 18x9 +10 and 18x11 +10 for my next set of wheels.
