Re: biggest wheels

Width or diameter?
More info would be helpfull. 17" wheels or bigger sometimes look out of place if the car sits high. As a starting point an 8" wheel will work on the front and a 9.5" will work in the rear in 17" or larger diameter.

Re: biggest wheels

Jack is right,if the stance is wrong,a bigger wheel will have you too high up in the air.
If we're talking about diameter,common no-hassle sizes that will fit right out of the box are as follows:

Fronts:
17x8 (4.5" b/s) better would be 4.75" or even 4.875"
245/45-17's

Rears:
17x9.5 (5.5" b/s) w/275/40-17's

Now each car is different so you really need to measure.I am currently running a 18x10 rear (5.625" b/s) w/275/40-18's and I could have either run a slightly bigger tire or gone with just 5.5" b/s...I have that much more room to play with.
