    Hi guys, am on the stock 225/50r16 tires with the stock rim which i believe are 16x7.5
    I was wondering if 17x9 all around with 225 or maybe 245 would fit without adjustment

    I would suggest using staggered wheels (8" on the front with a +35 offset & 235/45 tyres) ....... you don't need huge front tyres on a rear wheel drive zed

    Awesome looking wheels and thank you very much!

    I didnt go the way with staggered cause the rim I wanted didnt offer it, it shouldnt make a difference if the fronts were the same as the back right?

    If you always drive in a straight line it shouldn't matter, but unfortunately the front wheels oscillate from lock to lock which tends to have large front tyres scrubbing on the inner guard liners. I've seen examples where big tyres have scrubbed straight through the liner AND the radiator overflow reservoir bottle :eek:

    Then there's the added guard clearance problem when hitting dips or bumps with the steering turned one way or the other :mad:

    That should be okay on the front (depending on the wheel offset) but I would look at running a 255/35 on the back to keep your speedo accurate

    What offset are the wheels, as this is an important factor ....... Also, do the wheels you purchased clear the front calipers on the zed (the 4 pot calipers are fairly bulky)

    Im actually still waiting for them to come.
    Ozzy tires claim they will choose the right wheel offset for my car, i wasnt allowed a choice.. I hope they are +35.

    Fronts will fit fine- long as offset is around +30-+35
    245/40 will also fit fine
    245/35 will work too

    Rear will fit and hold a 255 very comfortably
