    I may be mistaken , but I thought that I heard of someone that runs a 10 in rim on the back.
    Can this be done?

    to Jeff:I used to run a 18x10 in the back, no issues at all.

    to RyanoLS1on: 18x9 all around, better handling.

    Alot of people run wider tires in the back, including myself. But with the same size all around you can rotate them. All in what ya like...

    i run 18x10's at all 4 corners. IMO, i would never run anything smaller than a 9 inch wide wheel on these cars.

    you can even run a 18x11, if you have a proper offset.
    Get at least 18x9... if you can get wider, go for it... but always better to have same size in the front... our cars are nose heavy and need the extra width in the front... plus, same size allows for rotaiton.
