I doubt it, unless the offset sucks them way in. Do you know what the offset is?

Bummer. You can fit a much wider wheel/negative offset on the SS than the Fleetwood, though. :(

It depends on the offset. It can get tricky with the skirts. I saw the ad for the wheels but he didn't mentioned the exact offset. Ask him if there are any markings on the insides of the wheels. Unlike off-the-shelf wheels that have the numbers stamped into them, Asanti wheels are built for the car. Sometimes, they forget to engrave the offset numbers into the wheels. I had a set of offset 22x10's/22x9's on one of my old cars and the front wheels didn't have any markings but the rears did.

I've seen 22x10's and 24x10's under the skirts of Fleetwoods before. As a matter of fact, there's a guy on here (I don't know his name) who has 26" wheels under there and I'm sure those are 10 inches wide. However, there may be some trimming involved.

Yeah, it'll fit, but you want an offset around 18 or so, Better to go too high and have to use a spacer than go too low and have no options.

You can keep the skirt, but you'll have to do some trimming to the hardware underneath it. Some people remove the hardware under the skirt completely and attach it by other means. Doing so gives you even more space, but you'll have to be creative.

I believe that the only "trimming" required is grinding/cutting down the handles to make them narrow. I'm referring to the two lever-like handles that you pull down to release the skirt from the body. You should be able to pull it off with something like a dremel.

yeah i would think they would fit. But i agree with "The Firewood will rise again" on the offset. But try to stay away from the extra small tires, shorter side wall = rougher ride, and in some case bent rims. i have 295/35/26's and the rear skirt had to be trimmed at the bottom.
