Has anyone had success with 8x17" front wheel/9x17" rear wheel package? If so, what tire sizes worked the best, and did it require any modifications to sheet metal? I have heard of 8" in the rear, but not 9". Input please...

Unless you got traction problems or more than 250 hp I would stay with 8" rims with a 225 or 235, if you want to stagger them you could try running a 8" rear with a 245 on it.<br></i>
