Default Rim Size

How do I figure out what size rims I can put on my tire? Pretty new to this and just starting to figure things out. The tires, obviously are no longer stock, bought new ones about a year ago.

Depends on what size rims you want. As long as you maintain the stock tire height then you can go as high as 20'*

Give us some more information on what yer lookin for and we can go from there

Yes, SSEi95 has 255'* but his wheel well is modded to accomodate, 245 is max, but dont reef on your steering wheel to its max point.

Stock tire height of the 225/60R16'* on 92-99 Bonnevilles is 26.5" I believe

Would 235'* fit without rubbing at all? also would a putting 235'* al around really make a difference in handling?
