do yourself a favour and don't go for size for the sake of it.

Put 22"s on there, and tires with the smallest sidewall you can possibly find.

put in your stock size, and then whatever size you want and see what kind of tire you need to keep at at stock diameter.

Anybody have any idea how wide the rims can be?

the stock rim size is a 17x6.5 wtih a 55 offset....the spec b comes with a 18x7 rim...

i'd say 7.5 would be the largest

They are hard to find, but there are a few companies that make 19x7.5 wheels.
I'd personally not go that large if you didn't want to loose horsepower. That extra wheel turning weight will definitely slow you down.

not extra weight per-say... its more rotating mass (tranfering the weight farther from the center of rotation. Needs more torque 'force' to accelerate/decelerate the object in rotation.) In this case, the wheel. Making feel like you are losing horse power when actually you are using more of it to turn those big dubs :wink:

Personally, I would stay with 17's... No bigger than 18's for sure, light weight at that. And if you are going that route, be prepared to spend.

Yeh, that's a better way of stating it. My main point was you'd end up with slower times in the 1/4 run with huge wheels. Plus it will start to put a hurt on gas milage too. My buddy sold his 20" wheels from his Durango because of the crappy gas milage he was getting. Everything went back to standard gas milage once he installed the factory alloy rims & tires.
It's a give & take I guess. Gain good looks to lose in other areas. When I get my V8 swapped Nissan truck finished, I'm not going any larger than 18" wheels for those reasons.

Also ends up being hard on the braking system too...
