I have an idea and I have no idea if its possible.
I love the Pantera's look from its massive rear tires. I was hoping to do something similar to my conquest. Does anyone know if its possible to get 17X11" (Rear) and 17X8" (Front) rims on a 1987 Conquest TSI?

If the answer is no then what would be something similar or what would I need to do to make this work?

Thank you

I guess it depends on offset.   I have 17x10 +25 on rear and I had to use a 1" spacer.

How do you like them? Performance, grip, and stability wise?

So all you needed was a 1in spacer to make them work with no other modifications and can clear the wheel well no problem?

Awesome
I'm somewhat thinking 315 25 18 for the rear.


What do you run on the front?
