Thanks, mixed opinions. I asked because I just put a widebody kit on and factory 17s look too small.

You spent 2-3k on a widebody kit and you're not instantly throwing 18x12s on the rear?

Wasn't sure if car could handle it>The front fenders don't come out as wide. 12looks like it would definitely rub. I plan on 18 x 9.5 all around. Just wanted to know if I could go wider on the back. It comes out of shop tomorrow , then I will get what I can put on, Feel me my brother.

Uhmmm... ok? To reiterate, what brand are the fender flares scotch taped to your 328? Has nothing to do with this guy's widebody. Can't see how my question was confusing.
