    Anything is possible. You might have to roll the fender lip to make them fit perfectly. Actually I just saw these on eBay for $165. Look great. 18in though.

    Any wheels that look like that are 5k+. Most after market wheels for the Stsv are going to be 3k+. Just paint the stock wheels its way cheeper.

    Re: Wheel help!!

    Due to the 6 lug pattern custom made are your only option.

    I had some custom 2 piece iForged Equip V3 made in a 19/20 combo for my V a few years back . . they are for sale . .

    I now have some custom monoblock forged from Finspeed 20/20 took forever to get them but very happy with the end result.

    I had to do 3 piece myself it was almost 6K, the lug nut pattern is your enemy. 255-35-20F 275-35-20R with the lowering springs its a really good look!

    Re: Wheel help!!

    CARID has a few cheaper wheels on their site that claim to fit for around 2k but you won't find them in the size you want. The width and offset are what are going to keep "nice" wheels for the V expensive. If you just want to slap some 20's on it you'll find them, but having a set that are 8.5" front with 10" rear for our cars is gonna cost ya!

    the ten to twenty millimeters of addtional rubber isn't going to overpower physics. If you want grip get the stickiest tire you can. (FYI 25.4 millimeters = 1 inch)

    To answer your question though i think you can fit a 295/35/19 under the rear without issue. YouKnooow might know exacts, as he was running non-stock tire sizes for some time IIRC.

    There are more options available in the stock size than there are going up to 285 or 295 widths, and in my opinion if I wanted maximum grip from a street tire I'd probably buy Bridgestone Potenza S-04's or Hancook V12's, both of which are availabe in 275/40/19. If you live in the desert and don't care about anyting but grip get a cheater slick and let the rest of us know how awesome it is

    I'm running 20's but they are a direct up-size, so my ratios remained the "same".

    TF prices are pretty decent too. If I go different wheels that's probably the route I'll go.
