I have a 1996 RMW and I am looking for some real world feedback on wheels. Yes, I have searched many forums and it seems there is a bunch of info on 17" wheels (because of the Impala SS wheels) and a bunch on 20" wheels (well, because they are 20s ?). I have not seen much on 18" wheels. I really don't want to go to 20s because of the shorter sidewall and 17s I feel are becoming somewhat of an odd size.
My wagon is a DGGM wood delete, however I may be adding some "wood" to it, sadly without the outer trim pieces. Because of all of the chrome on the RMW, I want to stick with a chrome/polished wheel and finally found a wheel I like that isn't $1000+ each. This is the wheel that I am consideringhttps://www.ridlerwheel.com/607-polished
They have it available in the correct bolt pattern for the RMW in a 18X8 and 18X9.5. I am wondering if an 9.5" Wide wheel can fit on the rear with the side skirts? Anyone have experience and if so, what size tire can go on it as well?
The 18X8 is a 0 offset with a 4.5" backspacing
The 18X9.5 is 6 offset with 5.49" backspacing
These wheels are also available in a 20 X 8.5 (although I would prefer to stick with 18) with 0 offset and 4.75" of backspacing. Any thoughts on this will be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance for your help.
