    Wide Rims with stock suspension?

    I have seen many posts here about running wide rims(9+) are possible, but usually these cars are lowered and running some negative camber. I was wondering, for instance, if I am able to run 18x10 xxr 521 25+ all the way around. Or even 19x9 42+ all the way around on stock suspension without any rubbing issues. I don't mind if they stick out quite a bit, but I want to know if it is possible for our optimas?

    optima is limited on the front. 9.5 max and that needs some offset homework. there are people running 10/10.5 in the rear all day. search around there are some topics covering this issue.

    9 fronts, 10.5 rears wrapped on 255/35/20 here, stock suspension, no rubbing,

    now im lowered on eibachs, running -1.5 rears, only rubs when the car gets sudden shocks, might need to go for 245/35 on the rears
