Torque star rim Width

Is the stock rim a 6.5 or a 7"? I think its a 6.5. The guy at Summit racing put the scare in me when he mentioned that the 245/50/16 tire might not seat right and pot off

i have the twisted 5 spoke wheels on my gtp with 245/50 R16's on them and they fit fine. i also have the older 5 spoked wheels (which may be the ones your talking about) with nitto 555r drag radials in a 245/50 r 16 and they fit fine also. i believe the rim size is 7" which is the smallest rim size for those tires. good luck.

Thanks Joel. Thats what I thought. I ended up buying kuhmo 711's for 65 a piece from Summit Racing. The sales rep put the scare in me, but I figured I and others and I woulden't be doing this swap if tire were popping of the rims The problem is now I might have to lower my car with springtechs (1.6 drop) instead of my Eibach's (1.3 drop) I can't wait to install them in a few days.

nope, my car sits fairly high actually. their probably a good 3 inches or so of gap between the top of the opening to the tire. its hard to see cause my car is black. hopefuly in the near future my car will be lowered a bit. havent decided what springs i want yet. i could go with only a 1" drop or so with kyb struts or a big drop and some koni's but those cost an arm and a leg.

Your alignment looks screwed in the back.

Was the car sitting on an angle, or do you have a lot of crap in trunk?
