Get this. I told them I want 16x8 4.5" backspacing with 225/55-16 front and 255/50-16 rear. They say that they will rub on the a-arm and will rub on the inside in the back.
The guy said "Im not trying to tell you how to build your car but most wheel manufacturers don't offer that big of backspacing because it will rub."
I think they are smoking it. This stuff really makes me wonder about these people that work there, not really knowing what they are talking about.

I know what you mean I went to Sears they were having a sale on General brand tires. The guy tells me that General tires are slippery in the rain and that I should go for a more expensive tire. I cant deal with stupidity so I left and went to the Sears in another town who had the General tires I needed on sale and you know what they work great in the rain and snow.
