Why would you put a bigger rim on the back vs the front?

Bigger lip......afraid i cant run 7.5 in front....if i can then i would but i really dont think i can.....

... um... k.

162 or 165? 165 running a different size rim is a hassle.

Why are you looking to run a 7.5 in the rear? Is it just simply to look under and see wider tires?

Never mind why i want to....can i do it is the question

Can i run a 15x7.5 in the front.

I ran a 7" wide wheel on a 4th Gen with a 38mm offset. On the front she was flush (maybe a mm or two out.) On the rear, she was tucked a few mm.

According to the wheel calculator at 1010, you will have the same clearance inside and be out 12mm on the outside.

You will probably have to roll your fenders, front and rear to be honest, but I am pretty sure it will fit.

i will be rolling all fenders, i just want a good size lip when i order new rims, and i like the lip on the 15x7.5 with +38 offset....i dont want to to make a 400 dollar mistake and order a a rim that wont fit as i couldn't replace it..... i may just play it safe and order 16x7 cuz im having a hard time get a 100% for sure fitment.

Here is some info on rims for the 165, which shoould be the same for the 162.

I'm on Megan's in my 165 and run 17x8 with a 35 offset all around. I need to roll my fenders, but otherwise it is fine.
