hey all,

i have a set of steel rallys 8" wide with 9.5" wide tires, just wondering on quick reference if anyone knows whether or not they will fit on a 91 caprice, the skirts are my concern (these are for back tires only, fronts are narrower)

thanks !

8" wide wheels mean almost nothing without knowing the backspacing/off-set of these wheels. Do these wheels have a 5x5" bolt pattern? At the very least, can you give up a hint as to what vehicle these wheels came off of?

9.5" wide tires also mean nothing. Can you get us a specific tire size; like 235/70/15?

Hate to seem like an ass over this.....but this is the information we need to be sure that we're giving you good info.

Are these street tires or slicks? Anyway either type tires are OK to use with those rims.

Harder sidewalls (and often, harder tread).....handling and ride will suffer versus car tires.

Plus, truck tires look like they should be on trucks :p .
