Are you talking 10 inch wide wheels themselves or just 10 inch wide tires? I can say I run 17x8 with a 245/65R17, 35MM offset and you get rub with those, and they are about 10 inch wide "tires" on that 8 inch wide wheel. thats even with a sway bar relocation bracket... even with a 40-55mm offset you would run into issues with them rubbing on the struts atleast.. most likely you won't be able to get anything wider than an 8.5 inch wheel, and maybe a max of 255 wide tires without causing some sort of damage. hope that helps a bit.

You won't have any rubbing with a normal 45mm or 48mm offset. That's your problem.

I was actually surprised how long my OEM Hankook's lasted. I just took them off with 41,250 miles on them and could have put on at least another 2,000. I got a nasty nail and something else in the same tire so I'm replacing them now. I'm getting new Drag DR 31 rims and 235.60.17 Yokohama Avid Ascend GT tires. Discount tire had to order them from out of state so they will be here next week. I really do like my winter setup with the 225.60.17 Nokian Hakkapeliitta but wanted a little wider tire for the summer.
