Will 4.5" BS work?

294 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Steve Wood
Hey, y'all... I'm wanting to put some 17 x 8 Eagle Alloy series 211 (Torq Thrust II copies) on the GN. They are only available in 4.5" and 5" BS. Will the 4.5 BS work w/o rubbing? I plan to use 255/45R17 in the rear and 235's or 245's in the front.

I don't know with the 17's but myself and Red's Hot-Air has 15's with 4.5" (me) or 5" (Red's, I think) BS. Red's has a notched frame and I use thin spacers. If you have iron drums 4.5" may work without spacers but no car has a perfectly centered rear.
Aluminum drums will reduce the back space a bit...it will be very close to the frame and may need a thin spacer.
