Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.
now that weve clarified different widths are acceptable as long as the overall diameter of the tire is the same. does anyone recommend of have a solution to my issue for the rims. As i see it right now i have a two options but tell me if im wrong.
1. Get the 9" wide version of the same tire (so that it beads properly to the side wall) with the same diameter and possibly have the fenders rolled with a combination of a camber kit to avoid the tire shreading? (have no idea...hoping someone could chime in)
2. Try and find the same rims with the 8" width to match the front.
I'd do the second provided you have four equally worn tyres that you can still use. This is because you have rubbing with the wider rim anyway. Or, I'd do the second plus four new tyres. Third choice, four new wheels all the same with for equal same worn tyres; fourth choice new rims new tyres all the same all around, hope that makes sense.

I think im gonna end up finding the 8" version of my same rims... another question though...anyone know what kind of rims those are?! not a brand name or anything on them. makes me think he just went to the ghetto and found a set on sale and said slap em on. I noticed that the stock rims for my car are 7"... does anyone have trouble running the 8" in the back? or do i need a different offset?
new wheels!!!! Nice car looks clean
STAGE 1 IS MORE FUN BUT STAGE 2 THERE'S MORE TO DO
I didnt see anything on the back side that stood out. The only markings i can find on them are these..
Welcome and good luck! I got nothing for you on those wheels, I don't know much about manufacturers.

The brand is usually on the center cap on aftermarket wheels, but I don't even see any caps on your wheels. Keep looking....
