Default What is the widest wheel for 2000 SSEI?

Hi, what is the widest wheel we can use on the SSEI? I found some awesome 20" wheels but they are 9" wide and I am afraid to commit until I know they will work. I fear 9" wide may be too wide. Can anyone confirm either way? thanks. J

It'* going to depend a lot of the offset. The offset of a wheel determines whether it is set in where the entire width is inside the fender or set out, where the tire sticks out and extends past the edge of the fender.

Depends on the offset. 245mm seems to work for most people, 255mm may rub
