The look and quality of these rims are super sick. I LOVE these rims on a Fox body, but, come to find out the 9" rim is a little to wide for my application. Minimum tire width is definitely 245mm. I wish they made them in an 8" wide version. I never had tires mounted on them nor lug nuts tightened, but I dry fit them on my 86 GT and there was clearance issues in the front and back. I have 91 spindles, calipers, rotors and struts and there was maybe an eight of an inch between the back of the rim and the strut. Clearance is clearance I know but it was a little too close for me. Same clearance issue with the quad shock in the back and my exhaust tail pipes (which is my fault having 3 1/2" Magnaflow tailpipes). If it was that close I almost bet it would have rubbed with a 245mm or 255mm tire on it. I let LMR know and they made the return process super easy. I paid return shipping but had my refund within an hour of them receiving the rims via UPS. Thanks LMR!!! Love your products and customer service!!!
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I live in just outside of Toronto in Canada. The price for these even after exchange and shipping was the cheapest. I was blown away how fast they arrived. When I opened the box I was blown away on the look and quality of the rims. Highly highly recommend this product from LMR to anyone

The wheel size is the diameter of the wheel, in inches, not counting the tire.
Modern tires in North America have several other measurements associated with their size.
A tire designated as a "225/70R14" denotes a tire with the following dimensions: width of tread: 225 mm; ratio of tire height to width: 70 percent; rim diameter: 14".
Therefore a 185/70R14 has the same rim diameter and aspect ratio, but a smaller overall diameter and narrower tread face than the 225/70R14.
The easiest way to measure backspace is to lay the wheel face down onto the ground so the backside of the wheel is facing up.
Take a straight edge and lay it diagonally across the inboard flange of the wheel. Take a tape measure and measure the distance from where the straight edge contacts the inboard flange to the hub mounting pad of the wheel. This measurement is the backspace.
The photo below shows three wheels with 2", 3", & 4" backspace.
Wheel Bolt Circle
The bolt pattern or bolt circle is the diameter of an imaginary circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. Bolt patterns can be 4, 5, 6, or 8 lug holes. A bolt circle of 4x100 would indicate a 4 lug pattern on a circle with a diameter of 100mm.
The diagram indicates the proper measuring methods. 6 lug wheels are measured like the 4 lug wheels.
The offset, measured in millimeters, can be negative or positive, and is the distance from the hub-mounting surface to the rim's true centerline. A positive offset means the hub-mounting surface is closer to the outside edge of the wheel; a negative offset means the hub-mounting surface is closer to the inside edge of the wheel. Offset affects the scrub radius of the steering and it is advisable to stay within the limits allowed by the vehicle manufacturer. If tires are fitted which are significantly wider than those specified by the manufacturer, a compromise may have to be adopted whereby a wheel with less offset is used to prevent the tire rubbing on the suspension.
Wheel Lug Pattern
Wheel lugs or bolt pattern is merely the number of bolts or lugs on the wheel. As the bolts will be evenly spaced, the number determines the bolt pattern. For example, most U.S. passenger cars have 5 bolts while compact models sometimes have only 4 and pick-up trucks can have as many as 6 or 8.
