I know this topic has been beaten to death but Im having a hard time finding answers all over other thread's. So hopefully you guys can help me a bit.

1. How well do r/t wheels fit?
2. Can the dust cap be modified so the centre cap will fit?
3. Will the wheel's rub on anything?
4. Is $300 Canadian for a used tire free set a good deal?
5. What size of tires does everyone run on there's?

Thanks for all your help.

That should help you.
Also; i've heard you could just hammer the cap flat and it will work.

Tires; depends if you are lowered or not, i rub with 215/75/15's since im lowered, so when i get my set i plan to run 235/45/17's up front and probably 275/40/17's in the back.

Tires should not rub, the issue with the gen II is the rim rubs on the lower suspension arm, but 5 min with a die grinder on the arm(you need to remove around .5 in of the edge of the arm

$300 Canadian? Buy them RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!! Cheapest I have come up with is around $140-150 a rim......

tip: if your gonna change the ride height in ANY way, do so before installing the wheels. i put mine on and they rubbed just a lil bit at factory height. so i ground down the c arms. when i lowered it, it was rubbing again so i had to do the work twice.

Mine rubbed on the Lower CA, I didnt bother with the center caps. I like the way it looked with out them.

I ran a 245/45-17 I think, and a 275/40-17 on the rear. I couldnt run the stock RT height tire, way too tall.

My RT wheels got sold a few years ago. Traded hands a few times, pretty sure they ended up back in Turboblews hands somewhow.
Nah... you originally cockblocked me then whoever bought them stored them until I bought them off a garage sale for $200. :D (a $350 savings!!)
all the tires were shot and the pc was filthy. :D
