    Am i wrong or are they?

    So i went up to Big o tires and wanted to buy some tt2 but the guy that works there told me that the backspacing is wrong and they wont fit so i ended up getting the ttm. My issue is if you look on the ar website and look at what rims fit your car it shows that the vintage tt2 polished 17x9.5 with +46mm will fit so why is he telling me they wont fit when i have seen tons of photos with them on a TA?

    The car is a 98 TA

    Continue to bitch.

    If you have too, print the shit out from the AR website or maybe an EGay link.

    I had that same issue with Big O when I bought my wheels. I had to print out the specs for them so they could order what I wanted.

    Nothing wrong with them...

    I would just want the 17x10.5 on the rear.

    I didn't buy the TT's at all. I bought some Boss Motorsports 304s. That was 2 years ago. They are 18x9.5 but I don't remember the backspacing or offset.

    Where did you get them and how much? Did you have to specify backspacing or no? (haven't done too much research on them yet)

    just take them back and tell the guy you dont give a crap about what he says, just give you the damn tires you want and mount them and put them on the car.
