I was putting on my shoes today after cleaning them all day long and I decided to see how 9.5"s would look all around (front and rear). And they fit! Fit prefect as a matter of fact, No rubbing, I can turn the wheel from lock to lock. Since the tires are streched they clear the swing arm by about 5mm because of the curve on the tire.

I think it looks wicked good!

I didnt put the center caps on since I was gonna take the wheels off right after anyways.

Pics:






and here a pic of how my car normally looks, 8.5s up front and 9.5s in rear.

So both wheels are "just" 17"? They do look like at least 18" to me. I guess the HUGE lip does the trick. Anyways, looks awesome :thumbup:

BTW Hope that is not your regular parking spot. You don't want your car to be towed away....

That thing is OFF THE HOOK!
You didn't mention your offsets though... Any idea?

I'll be sure to post photos of my B5 once I get my 18x8.5 et35 with 225/40ZR18's mounted.
