    Default What width rims do I need?

    I have an 88 C4 coupe with Yokohama tires:
    175/40/ZR17 98W

    Do I need 17's with 8.5 or 9.5 width? Thanks!

    With 175's you need about a 4.5 inch rim!!Sure your's aren't 275's??

    The 275/40/17 requires 9.5 width rims.
    There is a C4 suspension, tire and wheel guide in the Model Center that Hib put together that may help. I just can't find the link to it at the moment.
