      How about a case where the manufacturer did it?
      http://therustyrabbit.com/brochures.html

      Didn't VW just put Quantum wheels on the Rabbit in order to get wider tires on bigger wheels? (185/60R14 instead of 175/70R13 that was more typical of Rabbits and other small cars back then)

      I actually think it looks great. It would probably be stunning with the wheels rolling!

      Yeah, both those cars have hub swaps.
      Here's another t-bird with a mustang hub swap:

      Perfection if I do say so myself.
      Is it too much to ask for you dumb little monkeys to actually read the prior posts in the thread, and attempt to use some semblance of punctuation, capitalization, and general friggin grammar?
      Yes, this is mostly directed at the MKIV forum.
      Now GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!!!!

      Hey guys...what do you think about my Max wearing Nissan Murano 18's? I personally think they look great! My Maxima wearing Murano OEM rims is one way of upgrading while staying OEM....with a twist.
      For those that are thinking "why the hell would you put heavy SUV rims on your car..." The Murano's with tires weigh 4lbs less each versus the stock Maxima 16's. Believe it or not!

      ^^^^ You REALLY need to drop this thing about 3 or 4 inches. Otherwise, it looks surprisingly good.

      He must have put the SUV's suspension on along with the wheels.

      My passat will soon be riding on MB wheels off a 90 SL500. I've drilled them, got the hubcentric rings, striped the finish and now sanding them to a shine

      hot hot hot
      I haven't really looked into wheels for the R yet, but the thought of going with some amg or some audi wheels sounds like a great idea...some fat 5 or 6 spoke tt wheels might just do the trick...or maybe some twisted porsches

      That MAX is looking good with the murano wheels , I'd keep it that way I rather not worry about scrapping.
      Is it a 5-speed?
