SVO: re: wheel stuff
Man, I sound like a broken record...
>> 1. what is the backspacing on the 86 SVO?
I do not care what any 'book' says, every stock SVO wheel I own (and I have
12 of them) has a 5 13/16" backspacing (5.8125").
>> 2. what is the largest wheel and tire that will fit on the SVO without
>> having to roll the fenders? 255? 17x8's?
In my opinion, 16X7 or 17X7 is the largest wheel with a 235 tire. Unless
you install a panhard rod and put the Yellow Koni's on cranked to race car
state the larger tire will rub unless you only drive like a granny.
>> 3. if i went with a 17"8 rim, what width tire should go on it 245?
How much tire rub do you want? Start looking for a panhard rod.
>> also since its going to be a 17 inch rim do i have to lower the series
>> the tire from 50 to a 45? to companset for the larger diameter rim?
I have 245/45ZR17 Eagle ZRs on my car and they are 3/4" taller than the
stock 225/50ZR16 Eagles.

IMO the best combination beyond stock setup is a set of 16X7.5" wheels with
a 5.75" back spacing and 225/50ZR16 or 235/50ZR16 tires.
