I found a set of rims/tires on local craigslist, and picked them up.

Here is the IRL version of photoshop for those curious:



Now, I just need to find center caps, and track down my issue in the LF that is chewing tires.

Here'* an update.

I tried mounting 1 wheel to the right rear, only to find out that the tire is hitting the trailing arm. Spacers would likely be needed on all 4 corners for this rim/tire combo

So, now I am not quite sure which direction to go, whether it be wheel spacers, different rims all together, or cut my losses and stay stock. I am also not sure how much spacer it would take to do the job.

The goal is to get a wider tire with a bit shorter sidewall under it so that it doesn't drive on the sidewall when I decide I want to have a little fun.

They would look great on there, but before you make a decision I'd try to find out how much space you need to clear the trailing arm.
If it is not much you can get a washer type spacer, but if it is a inch or more I'd go bolt on, and get quality spacer, don't go cheap!
