    Rear Width, will 9.5" wide wheels fit? will the police notice?

    Hi All,

    I really want to order some 3SDM wheels, they often come in 8.5 front which is perfect and 9.5 rear which I need some advice on.

    Will 9.5" rear wheels be too wide? Will I get pulled for it (as in will the police notice?)

    Thanks in advanced, really don't need the police on my case.

    9j would fit fine but these either come in 8.5j or 9.5j. I rather have some reassurance about the 9.5js then to get the 8.5js and use a 0.5 spacer

    Apparently if the wheel exceeds the arches its illegal.

    Hi Alex,

    I cannot open the pictures, stuck at work can you email them to me?

    I am tempted to do 8.5j fronts and 9.5j rears, all I want to know is how much they stick out at the rears

    you will get 9.5s on easy if the offset is right...im running 9s on the rear of mine with ET35 and the dish just sits outside the arch (by mm's)....just adjust the offset to compensate for the extra width.

    and I always thought that as long as the tread was in the arch you could have your rim sticking out and it was fine?? hence stretching tyres on....
