Default wheels and tires 88 gt

hey guys I'm purchasing a set of 17x9 saleen sc wheels for the front and using a 245/45/17 tire although, for the rear I'm buying a set of 17x10 saleen sc wheels. now I have deleted my quad shocks and installed lakewood traction bars, I'm wondering if the 17x10 wheel will fit with a 275/40/17 tire for the rear. if anyone with any experience with this setup could reply it would be well appreciated. thanks

Hey man. I got the same wheels basically (same dimensions) and your good to go. The fronts will rub a little on full lock. But you can put in isolators on the steering rack to lessen the travel thereby lessening the stretch of the rack on full lock.

Not that it's directly related, but I had to install rack limiters on my car when I went from 17x8 in. wheels to 17x9 in. wheels. Inexpensive and easy as pie to install.
