Default 16x10's will they fit?

Can 16x10's be made to fit with the correct offset? I'm sure fenders would need to be rolled . Thinking of stretching some 215/55/16 over them.... Got my FK coilovers ordered and looking at a set of 16x10 diamond racing wheels.

On a 10" 215's will be firmly streched, so I think it's possible. But you 'll have to go to a really low offset, like 15. And watch out that you clear your struts. I'm curious if you 'll pull this off

Strut clearance us my biggest concern....may end up having to add a set of fender flares to keep the wheels in. you really think that it would take a +15 mm offset?

I can run that size on my stock rims without notice. Good luck getting air into these. Not to mention steering clearance and a few other things.

I see local ricers do stranger stuff, like 165/50 15 tyres on 7" x 15" rimms.

I did a simulation on a compare-tool and with ET 20 the wheel will be 10 mm closer to the struts and will be sticking out a decent 40 mm !!!

But on the other hand I think the PT's wheel wells are big enough to get it done without rolling.

18 x 9,5 rimms with 215/35 18 tyres. Totally no problem

40 mm= just over 1.5". I think it'd take flares to tuck those in the front but with a lil massaging to the fenders it may be possible without. Ive thought for awhole that a "stanced " pt would look WAY better than most "stanced" vehicles...may even be tempted to throw on a bosozuku style exhaust just to be difrent.

Wheel's will have to wait until after the new year. I've blown the pt's christmas fund on the FK's lol

1. That's not a Cruiser
2. It looks like dog doo.
3. You don't see a problem? Really??

It's not so much "Can you" do that. It more a question of SHOULD YOU do it.
You CAN wrap your rims with duct tape instead of tires but should you do it?

You can.... because it's your car, I guess.
