Toyo R888's on standard 8 spoke wheels

942 2
I apologize in advance, I've searched, but haven't found a clear answer. :shrug:

Can I fit Toyo 195/50 R16 to the front and 225/45 R17 tires to the rear?

I've only run Yokohama Advan Neova AD07's and I'm looking to upgrade. :shift:

Thanks in advance.

That is all. :eek:

Can and should are two very different prospects.

You can, but the tire wall will BULGE out so far as to look and handle sub-par.

You should, get a set of either LSS which are 6.5" (I believe) front width or a set of aftermarket wheels like RAC's/team dynamics/etc. that all run a standard front wheel width of 7".

You will not experience the benefit of R888's on a wheel that is 5.5" wide...YIKES

I have r888's on a set of RAC's: 7" front (195 width tire)and 8" rear" (225 width tire)

You can get a good set of LSS wheels for ~1000.
It's a buyer's market...happy hunting
