    Hey everyone,

    I'm planning on getting some 275/40/17 rears on a 17x9 wheel. Can I still keep my quad shocks??

    6.02 wheel backspacing
    +26mm offset

    how about 18X10 with a 285/35/18 tire???? (fr500 from mustang tuning)


    Thanks

    I've never heard of that being a problem. But you are better off buying new shock/struts and eliminating the quad shock.
