Really, you cant run 17X10.5's on the back of a Fox without modifications ( besides the SN-95 5 lug conversion) ?
Because i really wanted to get some in the back, what do ya have to do to make them fit?

Fender modification, and inner wheel well modification. Quad shock delete, and proper backspacing, and you can make a 10.5 work with an 79-93 8.8" axle under a fox.

How are you running a 10.5" wheel, with a '95 rear end in a fox?
the 95 rear end is 3/4" wider on each side (only the axles are different), so you can fit a wheel with more backspacing on there.

In general, there is no reason to use a 10.5" wide wheel. A 9" wide wheel is plenty.

I know how its possible, i was just curious how he was doing it. It seemed like he hadnt done anything to the car to make it work.
