getting 22, 24, or 26 inch rims

first of all how ezily can i fit each one? i no 22s can fit on it ezily but can i fit 24s or even 26s without having to cut stuff off my car?
and how much will they slow my car down? also how much harder is it to handle? and how much less MPG will i be getting? thanks

26's you'll need to extend your spindles and so some extra fabrication. 24's you will have to shave a bolt (yes even with 25 series tires 9 times out of 10) on the control arm. This is really easy, all you have to do is take a grinder to it and shave it down just past the tread for 25 series, and take about 1/3 the bolt off for 30 series tires (recommended because I just damaged 3 24's... on 30 series tires... but inflation was an issue for 2 of them).

Anyway if you dont plan to put air ride on your car and want to sit on the pavement, and the roads aren't too bad, I'd do 24's. Or do what I did and get a real nice set of 22's (high brand like assanti, USW, Davin, maybe TIS, etc.) I personally respect brand more than size.

24s, you will have to shave down the bolt
26s, you need to extend your spindles. A forum member by the name of Israel has some for sale i think.

Either option... Roll your fenders



MODS: I could rattle on about them all day... Just ask
HOW DO I... EVERYTHING

even though mine aren't on yet, I say 22's are the way to go especially when your car goes up and down and your rims don't move when your car moves. trippin out stoners and old folks one block at a time
