Right now I have American racing Outlaws (15x7 front, 15x10 -38mm rear). The rears actually stick out past the fenders! Although the tires are huge and makes the car look soo aggressive, it has about 1" clearance from the fender and scrapes like a mofo!

So, Im really into wide wheels and I love the Torq Thrust 2 rims

I Like the staggered look, so i was thinking
Front: 18x8 Offset: ???
Rear: 18x9.5 or 20x9.5 Offset: ???

I want a real tucked/flush look in the rear. Hopefully someone has a similar set up who would like to help me out with chosing the correct size and offset!
thanks:beer:

I'm running an 8.5'' rim with 5 1/2" of backspacing but it's a 15" with a 295/50/15. It tucks up inside the wheel well with no rubbing. A 10" might be too wide.

So I found a staggered set Of American Racing Torq Thrust 17x8 and 17x9(0 offset/5inch backspace) on craigslist for $600, brand new.

I have 5x10 (-38 offset) in the rear and it definitely scrapes, im assuming with the 1" narrower and 0 offset that these should barley tuck under the rear fender. What do you guys think?
