Toying with the idea of going down to 10's, just wondered if anyone is running 10's under sports pack arches? If so any chance of some pics?
Cheers
Joe

Still unsure?!? Currently running mine on 13's with sport pack arches, have tubbed the arches so sits pretty low, would the 10's fill the same arches as well? Or would I need some others?
Cheers

IMO only 7 inch wide wheels suit sportspacks properly (i dont even like the original sportspack wheels with them to be honest)

but itd totally up to you in the end, if you like it then go for it

Take a look in the 10inch wheel tread. 10x7 is the way to go. Please keep in mind to adjust brakes if you have a MPI or such and most of all to have a hi lo kit to avoid "jeep mode".

Red one is 10x7 with yokohama.

blue one is 10x6 revolution with spacers to fit the arches I guess.

I looked at this topic alot as to whether or not to go with 10" under sportspacks. Took the plunge, and I think it works.
