    New to me wheels.. Some fitment questions.

    I just got a great deal on some style 68's with tires. Just curious if I'm going to have any make fitment issues switching from my current style 44's. They do have staggered tires. 245/45 in the rear and 225 45 in the front which is same size ad my current setup. My only question is am I going to be able to fit the rears without messing with my coilovers?

    You will be fine. No worries. Let me check.

    Are the 68's a staggered rim?

    Do you have matched rear or front 17's?

    STYLE 68

    Front = ET41, 7.5" rim

    Rear = ET50, 8.5" rim

    STYLE 44

    Front/Rear matched = ET47, 8" rim

    Do these numbers look correct for rear?

    Wow.
    I went to type in the website for that wheel calculator but forgot the full site so I took a guess. I typed in "www.willitfit.com" and immediately regretted it...

    Thanks Dane. So putting the new wheels on tonight I pulled off my driver rear and was shocked to find how badly the inside is wearing. I had this problem before and replaced the rtabs...could there be something else gone bad causing this? Also notice the bulge in the tire just to the left of the bald spot. Looks as If the belts have failed?

    Inner wear is normal.
