    That's a whole lot of wheel to fit, especially in the front. I don't recall anyone running a 10" rim in the front. If they bill it as fitting in the front, then I would definitely stay with stock GT spacing, as the extra 3/4" will be critical.

    I was really looking for people who have ran the 4-lug reps (18x8(9) & 18x10 on these cars. I would like different wheels, but I wanted to see if anyone has made the 4lug wheels work.

    Thanks

    My 86 has 17X9 and 17X10 respectively, don't know about 18s. I run 255/40s in the front with a quarter inch spacer and longer studs and 285/40s in the rear with 4 lug disc brakes plus the stock quad shocks and not lowered. I had to make a slight mod to the rear quad shock bracket to clear the lip of the rim on the inside. I've had people tell me it looks perfect with that combo.

    Those wheels fit very nicely. I have 245/40/17 on the 17X9 in the front(Changed to a GT rotor) and a 275/40/17 on the 17X10 rear (Quad shocks removed) fits very good. Sticks out a tad bit but looks really good.
