I don't believe you should. I know of people running 18x8.5s with 245/40/zr18s.

You should be fine. Got any pics of these wheels?

Good god man. Booya , I like those.

I'm sure you probably know about it, but at Tireracks website, you can see how the car would look with those wheels. They may not have CenterLines, but they would have something mighty similar.

How much are they?

Rims and rubber are always pretty spendy eh Paul? Good luck with it. I have been keeping my eyes peeled for 17"'* and new tires. Might get them first and wait for the new SSEi...hee hee

Lemme know how it goes...

Wow those are some bitchin' wheels..... my personal favorites would be either the Hang Tyme(first on the list on that page) or Alba Blaze'*, third runner up would be the Alba Bertha'* but a kids already got a set of them on his stratus. Also you shouldnt have any problems getting them wheels to fit, previous owner of my Bonneville had 18'* on it....he also mentioned there was enough room for 20'* but thats a little spendy.....
