: Widest rear rims you can put on a V and what kind?

I was wondering how wide you could go on the rear rim on a V? I am looking at purchasing some new rims in the near future, but would like them staggered, wider in the rear. Idealy I would like a wheel with a polished lip and dark gunmetal grey center or black since my V was black. A few of the wheel shops that I have dealt with in the past have not recommended going with a staggered set and have showed me wheels that are sort of on the "blingy" side. Has anyone put a set up like that on their V? If so, I would love to see pics. I've done some searching on other posts, but haven't found too much specific info.

Also, how wide are the stock wheels?

Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated.

9 inch on the front and a max of 10 inch on the back is the best your going to do without modifications. I have 19X8.5 on the front and 19X10 on the rear without any rubbing. Factory wheels are 8.5 inches. My wheels are CCW's
There are post galore on this subject along with pics. I think everyone is sick of seeing this pic I'm posting.

Mine are stock size. But I saw the very sick wheels (http://www.lundcadillac.com/ACCENLARGE.CFM?ID=30&dlr=LUND) and they are 9.5 in the rear.

MCHM3, with such a big rim do you have any rubbing issues or tire scraping problems when you hit road dips and turns?

Mchm3,

hey can you send me some pix as well,?? I would like to see your V as well with those huge wheels, those have to be almost rubbing, cause my 20's are already close..
