Well, I wasn't pushing very hard to sell my car and now I'm not going to sell it but push forward on my plans that I had in the first place.

 

Has anyone had experience putting on wider wheels?

 

I'm going to just do smooth steelies but I want to go wider and I'm not sure of what offset and so on to do.

 

Any insight would be awesome. Thanks!

This may be a stupid question but did you have to put an adapter on or drill the hub or did the 6x5.5 fit on the 4x140?

Knock out two studs diagonal to each other on the hub. Then mark where to drill on the hub by mounting the wheel to the hub or where to drill the wheel if you want to keep the 4x140 pattern.

That's good to know. I actually found a few places that will do custom bolt patterns. But what offset did you use on the 15x8s?
