what is the bigest rim that can fit on an escort with best clearence
From Buffalo? Ok, I wouldn't blame you if you never listen to a word I say. On this one though, you have to listen - get your car undercoated every fall. It's $100 (Cdn) well spent.smoke187 said:u guys think i should do some Undercoating
Eh... to me it's a trade off, which I don't think is worthwhile.96EscortLX said:Maybe not as fast in the straight line, but the handling bonus that you get in those tires is amazing, 7.5" of rubber on the road compared to the speed bike tires that my escort came with (ok, maybe it was the size of 2 speedbike tires that came on it) well, all in all, I'd say ur gonna have a higher speed, I have no problem taking a 90 degree corner at over 60 without my car sliding! Hell, just last week those tires saved my life when some ass in a civic decided to run a red on my advanced green - I must have been over 75 by the time I finished that corner! And well, I find that the rims that I have now are 1 hell of a lot lighter than the stock rims, they're all an alloy instead of the stainless steel or whatever came on my scort! (oh, and all these speeds are in KM/h - not miles)
Like Numan said 18x7's fit I don't know where some of you guys get your info from.neuspeedescort said:

18x7.5 is rumored to fit if you get really thin spacers to stop it from hitting the strut.
