But your using sn95 axles right? 3/4" longer than stock so would 17x10 fit tight with stock length axles? Where did you get your fenderwell rolled at? Did you use a bfh on the inside of the fenderwell, could that mess anything up?Luke87GT said:Man, my 17x9's are tight enough, lol
There are some people using 17x10.5's but it usually requires
a.) rolled fender lips
b.) BFH on inside of wheel well
c.) clearanced tailpipes
d.) flipped quads or quad delete
There are exceptions to the rule sometimes.
Someone will always say they got them to fit without any mods, lol
I also used stock length axles when i did my 5 lug, but i have lx pipes and my fenderwell hasnt been rolled, where could i go to get them rolled? i would do it my self but i rather have someone with experience do it.1993gt40 said:I have on my '93 17X10 with 275/40's in the rear. I do not know what other modifications I will need to make but I DID have to flip the quad shocks which was no problem. I do not think I will need to roll my fender lips any more than they were when I got the car (not rolled to the max but someone definately massaged them at some point). I do not know about the tailpipes as it currently has dumps. It *LOOKS* like I have pleanty of room on the fender side but I think only because when I did my five lug I used fox length axles. YMMV
Yes, I have 17x9 rims and sn95 axles which are 0.75" longer than stock, BUT my rims are the M179 Cobra R's which have a 6.42"BS, unlike the more common R58's which have a 5.98"BS and are commonly used with stock length axles.PWR HNGRY 302 said:But your using sn95 axles right? 3/4" longer than stock so would 17x10 fit tight with stock length axles?

What does the front of you car measure from ground to top of fender arch?PWR HNGRY 302 said:Yea my 17x9 rub the front fenderwells. The reasom that i was thinking about running 17x10 was because i curbed on of my rear wheels so i was just going to 10" rear wheels since i was going to replace it but i decided to just keep it 17x9 all the way around but my 245's seem to be a tight fit on my wheels so i think iam going to run 275's but i need to roll me fenderwells before i do.
You'll probably have some clearance issues with the quads and/or the tailpipes. And depending on tire size, you may need to roll the fenders. I wouldn't go any bigger than a 285/40/17 if I were you, but it all depends on the tire manufacturer. I've seen guys with 315/35/17 Nitto drag radials, but have problems running 275/40/17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3s.would 17x10s with a 6 1/4 backspacing fit a 93? I have my lips rolled. What else would likely be needed...and what size tires would be optimal?
Would they stick out of the fenders, or rub if it was lowered?
