hey all, im looking at getting some new rims for the iggy just wondering if anyone has pics of a sport with 17x7 rims at stock ride height.

i have read that they fit alright but just want to see if they look good at standard height, not sure if i want to lower it yet.

if it looks more like a 4wd than now i might have to go smaller :lol:

thanks, pete

17 WILL RUB ON THE GUARDS OVER BUMPS OR IF YOU HAVE A PASSENGER OR TWO , wouldnt recomend them for the IS . Just go a bit wider then standard rims 15 x 6 1/2 or 7 thats my opinion , works well on mine. 8)

Can anyone tell me "Is that really a matter the RIM Center bore not equal to IS's 56mm. I got the rim which is 63mm in size. Can i still put it on?" Cheers!

Sen, 56mm/63mm is the 'centre bore' measurement ... correct?

You can still fit the wheels as longas the PCD is the same, but i'd advise you get some hub centric rings. Information on what they are is here: http://www.1010tires.com/hubrings.asp ... In short, they help to 'centre' the wheel correctly prior to tightening the nuts. Any repuatable wheel/suspension retailer should be able to sort you out.
