The cheapest and easiest thing to do is go inside, lay down and let the idea pass........

I hate those big O rings on 55's........
But if you are determined.........trial and error.....55's do not tolerate a lot of tire .....stock. The upper inner wheelwell interferes...

Deuce trust me i didnt have in mind 20in spinner's like you see on caddies and all those other punk hoodrat's cars, with hydro's and boom boxes lol i was thinking of maybe a foose wheel style or something like that, with my car slammed to the ground,,,it was just a thought i see alot of people doing it and i just wanted to know how they did it. right now i cant run anything over a 15in wheel without rubbing my quarter's at the moment....
I still like the welds on mine alot,

Well......that was sort of my response.......the wheelwells are real tight on 55's.......and 15 inch wheels and tires with any width want to rub.....

your not gonna fit that big of a wheel in there without lots of modification. the best way to get a big wheel under there is to maintian the tire height or overall diamater of the tire/ wheel, and find a size wheel and tire that will match closely to the original dimensions, I'm not a very big fan of the big wheel/ old car thing ( to me, any old car looks best with a 16" ,(15" best ) wheel max, and at least 2.5" of tire sidewall ) but this is the easiest way to get the look
