    ~~~~Need wide body suggestions / fender roller?need to snug 20X10s..

    well just like the title says, got these wheels brand new tires and I'm having trouble with rubbing. Looking to stretch the fenders a little or preferably find a nice wide body kit. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeff.

    Holy monkey shit batman, a wide body kit. I guarantee you it would be a full custom Jon that in the end will run you in the 10k area. These must be the nicest rims in the world. You should have did your homework to get the right size. Why don't you try getting your fenders rolled for a start. That usually gets the job done. Now I need to know.......what size are these rims and tires you got?

    Are you trying to run 20x10s all around? 10" wheels up front is going to take some serious work. What is the offset on the wheels, and what tire size are you running?

    There are plenty of us running 19x10s and 20x10s in the rear with no issues, just a fender roll.

    245/35/R20 it was the recommended tire size. I really thought about trying to find a better size rims but these were pretty much free so I don't mind putting the work in the car

    ----------

    and I don't know the offset. I'm not very good with wheels so I'm curious to what it is

    Re: ~~~~Need wide body suggestions / fender roller?need to snug 20X10s..

    If im correct, offset is how far the area of the rim that the studs go through sit inside the rim. Higher offset means your rims wont stick out much and will be flush with the fender. Lower offset means your tires will stick out and if you don't have enough clearance, it will rub your fender and not only damage the tire but also your fender. At least I think so. Idk, I could be completely wrong. If I am someone will correct me.

    I was more less wondering if somebody had fitted another vehicle type wide body kit and maybe just altered a little bit? I know they make ones for Subaru and s2000 like crazy but haven't found anybody that has tried it.

    Seems like you've done your homework on this. Good luck with the almost free wheels, should look awesome!

    Roll your fenders and run add some negative camber if you need more clearance. Im running 19x9.5 +22 all around on my slammed 05 acura TL with -2 degrees camber.

    Im suggesting this route because of your username.

    There's nothing cast or engraved into the backside of the wheel?

    Do you own a tape measure and a straight edge? If so, you can measure the backspacing, which will then allow us to have some idea of the fitment.

    I'm not sure how I feel about a widebody on a CTS. But do post pics here once it's done so I can be sure I don't like it

    Just kidding. But please do post pics, I'm curious to see what it will look like.

    You really want it that wide? And if you do get a wide body, I'd look to tack on a V front bumper as well.

    I think that looks pretty sweet!! Been pondering the idea since my body shop buddy owes me after I reupholstered his mustang seats for him. Would still have to give some cash but not that much. All because I want 12" tires in the back. No reason, just think it'd look cool. MPG's would prob take a dive though
