Just wondering guys. Have any of you heard of or known anyone who put 9.5" in the rear? I have heard many differing opinions on this . Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

not sure why you would want to go wider in the rear....

I have 19x8.5 +45 offset, lowered 1.5/1.7 with no rubbing issues if that helps. but with 9.5 width, you'll be rolling your fenders hardcore

I wanted to go wider just for looks mostly. I have been told i would need to roll fenders but that is ok with me. Do you have 8.5" all around? thanks for the info.

yes i have 8.5 all around. 235/35, cant run anything bigger without rolling fenders. don't go staggered, imo its a waste of $ and you can't rotate your tires when need be. ;)

wats the offset? you'll need offset in the 30s and how much are you lowered?
I am lowered on Eibach Prokit at the moment about 1.7" in front and 0.7" in the rear from what i am told. supposedly they could settle up to an 1"? The rims i am looking at are AME Shallen SX's front +42 rear +53. that is what the rep. told me. 225/40/19 245/35/19

Don't do it if ur lowered for sure i already tried. i got 9.5 R with 40offset and it was sticking out to much and because i am lower it rubbed. I wanted that look myself but couldn't do it, if you find 9.5 R with an offset of 50 or higher you will be fine. if ur not lowered it will work with a 40 offset but it looks weird with the tires that stick out of the wheelwell i didn;t like that look too much but some people do.

Heres pics of my ride with 9.5 R for you to see

thanks nighthawk. i am really torn on the whole staggered thing. like you i am thinking practically and i know staggered isn't the way to go. but it would be so cool though.

since your lowered on prokits. i think it will work. your offsets pretty high too so with the prokit, rolled/cutt fenders, 225-35 tires....should do the trick for the rear.

as for the fronts...same tires.

i say, go for it! i would.

just watch out for potholes.

i think u might rub if u are lowere with a 9.5 setup until and unless u roll them perfectly.. pullin might be required.. it also depends on what tire size u use.

yea they recommend that but u might have to go smaller size in the rear to make it fit.. 245 is kinda big.. might wanna go stretch tires.

you can fit 9.5 in the rear, ive seen ppl fit it, but with smaller tires, like 225's or 215's

i know it will fit but the rolling the fenders and the tire size is the key. may be even camber to go little more low!.. just put some pics of the car and wheels and we can help!
