      Is the only way to know to buy them and try them? Does anyone know if 8-9 wide will fit on my 84 fwd quantum? 14x9 not sure the offset saw them on Craigslist the guy doesn't know. He send pictures of the measurements from the inside lip to where it would meet the rotor/drum. The 9s were around 5" and the 8s around 3" thanks guys.

      So you wrote us "backspacing"?



      9J 5"
      8J 3"

      so ofset:

      9J positive 0,5" (12mm)
      8J negative - 1" (-25mm)

      ET:
      9J +12
      8J -25

      Assuming a correct calculation. I hope
      You can compare:
      9J et 15
      on front my friend have:

      but to the fender edge is something like 3-4cm.



      So 8J with negative 25mm is crazy wide for Quantum

      im not worried if theyre flush or poke out just want to make sure that they dont hit the strut or anything and not hit anything to hard when it turns the front wheels

      Depends on the size of the tire. Do you know what size you gonna use?

      195/65-14 will fit provided the ET is at or near the factory which, IIRC, is ET35
      I am running 195/60-14's on my GTI, only issue is upper fender clearance, but at stock ET Teardrops I have no issues.
      a 65 is only slightly taller ~6mm OD so you should fit fine.
