will the new 19in gt wheels fit a fox with 5 lug conversion

i am asking about the overall height and width of the tire, they are a 245/45*19

seems kinda big to go on the front, especially on a lowered car like mine. let me know about this please i want these pretty bad, and this is the deal breaker.

I doubt it. I THINK the inside of the wheel will hit the strut.

perfect reason to do agent 47 short/long arm up front.. :)

I bet they would fit easier than my 18x9 FR500's on my car right now. And my car I believe would be tougher since it has 1" narrower control arms. My tires are close, but they clear. 275/35/18 upfront

Probably at least as bad with the offset difference. Either way it takes some modification.

Arent the stock wheels an 8.5" wide wheel with a near 6" BS ? Thats pretty much the same as my real FR500's.


The big thing is you get an increase in clearence to the strut as you increase wheel diameter, due to the strut leaning in at that top. An extra inch taller wheel would give you another 1/4-3/8 more room to work with roughly.

That sounds about right. I know my FGT 18x9's DO NOT work :(
