Whats the widest wheels i can have?
« on: 22:30, Thu 28 June 2012 »
I intend on getting my steels banded, but how wide can i go. I was jst gonna go for 8.5 for the back and 7.5 at the front.

Depends how low you want to go, and how much arch you're willing to trim.
8J rears have been done before. If only you could camber them up.

If you get over to retrorides forum, you'll find stacks of people who have stretch tyres and there is  quite a few who band steels. They'd love the 480!
