Default SUV/RWD wheels on a PT Cruiser

Is this possible? I've heard of some FWD cars fitting RWD wheels, but as a result the wheels stick out passed the fendor. Does anyone know how many inches this would be?

I really like that deep dished look on a wheel, and i was also thinking about purchasing the side fendor flares that flare out 1.5 inches just to compensate for the wheels.

ive been trying to find the same look , the closest i have come is the foose spank rims but depending who you talk to the , ive been told everything from they will not work to you can only use 18inch or 20 inch and look under foose spank
also h can make customrims in that style but you better have your gold card ready either way, hope this help you[^][?]

I'm running 18x7.5 +35mm offset with 235/40 tires. From the looks of things, I'd say you could maybe go to a +25mm to get the wide trak look. Consider that a RWD wheel is around 0mm stock to a negative offset for deep dish. A potential problem though may be caliper clearance, too.

If you really want the dished rim look, check and I believe this wheel has a 360-degree machined lip behind the spokes!

This is the wheel look im trying to go for

The rim has that deep dish look yet the wheels are within the fendors.

Is this a particular type of wheel? ..or had there been body work done to make it fit?

anyone know a list of brands for wheels that have this deepdish/lip look?!?
