I have 17x9 wheels with a +36mm offset and 255 tires, no fitment issues whatsoever. I do, however dislike how they protrude from the front fenders. In hindsight I would have probably gone with a slightly narrower wheel because of this.

I will hopefully have the wheels at my house this weekend. I need to buy new tires before i can put them on and do the brake and hub swap though. I took a pic but is from my phone and not very clear. I will get some better pics once I have the wheels in my possession.
The wheels are at my house. I will try to get some pics of them tomorrow. I am excited. I made a new thread about tire sizes. I am thinking 245 in the front and 275 in the rear. I am open to suggestions but please post them on my other thread 17x9 tire sizes.
I couldnt fit the 9" wheels without at least 1/8-1/4" spacer on the late model spindles. If you have an 89-93 spindle they will fit No problem, but you can not upgrade the brakes.
Thanx Guys! I will have to definitely keep an eye out for this. needing that spacer can be a killer for me as I will be doing this over a weekend and then needing it for work. I will order the spacers ahead of time. Cheap insurance of making sure I can get the job done on time.
