What is the widest 16 or 17" rim I can fit on my S13, with out any problems?

I currently have 18x8 rims, and they don't rub at all. I have Apex WS coilovers that are all the way down in back, almost all the way down in front.

I want light weight 16's or 17's, but want the rears to be nice and wide to handle the hp. As of now I spin my 18's most way through third with Yoko Paradas'. On the 16's or 17's I would run DOT legal "slicks."

Can I fit a 9" wide rim? Wider?

Thanks

PEACE

How much power are you making that you are spinning your tires?

I've seen pictures of S13 with 17x9 wheels in the back.

Oh, BTW, the Parada's aren't too great in traction. They are more for show. Have you tried some other tires like the Yokohama A520?

yeah, the Parada's are definitely for looks, the traction isn't really there.

I have an SR20DET boosting 16 lbs... enough to spin my wheels, or wheel, as I don't have an LSD, yet.

Sorry about this repeat thread guys!

Didn't know the search funtion was really working.

Won't happen again.
