    "Wide" tires on a Spirit

    Since it looks like I might have to lose my pumpers in order to fit bigger brakes (Wilwood SRT4s) I was wondering what size wheel and tires people around here are running.

    RPF1s in a 17 are the way to go. They offer the most options, but you might have to swap your bolt pattern for some of them.

    If you aren't sure of your specific wheel and tire size, you might as well search online for more info.

    I run 16x8 wheels on my lancer. Currently has 205/50's but when they wear out I will go to a 225.

    I run Flik 17x7 (35mm) wheels on my Shelby Lancer with 215/45/17 and they fit/look great. The car has 11" brake setup from a '91 Lebaron GTC.

    Re: "Wide" tires on a Spirit

    Is it a good idea to install a wide tire on a sedan?

    You can check 4wheelonline if you need a set. I cannot recommend any particular make or model because I use regular tires on my vehicles.
