Re: 21" inch wheels

Practical limit is a tire diameter of ~32", up from the OEM ~30.6", regardless of wheel size. But it also depends upon the actual tire width and tread design at the edge relative to full clearance. Don't forget you need to upsize the spare to the same diameter, too. (Doesn't have to be the same width, but does have to be the same diameter)

Re: 21" inch wheels

You may have an easier time sourcing 22" wheels than 21" wheels. You're the first one that I can remember since I've been a member of this community asking about 21" wheels...

Re: 21" inch wheels

Ya not too many options. You're basically stuck with the Avante Garde M580 or M510 as well as the Rennen CRL55

Re: 21" inch wheels

I wonder if this would work 295\40\21 on a xo Verona 21x9, any thoughts?

Re: 21" inch wheels

I don't think a lot of shops would allow you to put that wide of a tire on a 9" rim. Discount for sure wouldn't. You're basically putting a 12" wide tire on a 9" wheel. The tire would really bulge and negatively affect handling

Only ~$100 more for 10.5" though, why go 9"? 10.5" would be perfect

Actually only $80 more for the set through Black Ops: XO Verona Wheels

Re: 21" inch wheels

When you look at the specs for a specific tire, they generally have the acceptable wheel width range listed. Be sure you're in that range with the tire and probably best not to be at the extremes.
