Ok, I love the ltuned wheels, but hopefully soon I'll need some 255s in the rear...
I had an idea and I'm wondering if this would work.

Current Setup
"stock" 18x7.5 225/40/18 Ltuned wheels all around.

What I want to do:
Leave the 18x7.5 225/40/18 in the front
Buy the Versus SS7 Campionato in a wider size for the rear and take my "L" centercaps off my current rear wheels and put them on the SS7s.

Looks like I'd go with the 18x8.5 +45 offset.
Would these fit properly? Could I then fit 255s in the rear on these wheels???

Basically, now it would look like I kept the "stock" Ltuned wheels, but I'd have the wider tires in the back.

Thanks for the help!!

I'm pretty sure you're going to have to modify the rear fenders to fit 255s.

Anyone else got some opinions on this matter? thanks. :D

I'll have to agree with lambchop. Theres a slim chance you wont rub. But I think rubbing would be minimal and wouldnt take alot of work to fix.
