11.5" rear and 8" front will have pretty bad understeer. Why not widen the fronts too?

thats what i was thinking. did you paint/polish them yourself? you might as well widen the 8'' fronts you have now, otherwise it was a waste of money to have them painted/polished.

you should be able to run a 9.5'' in the front...i would think it would actually balance out the understeer better than a 9'' rim would. your rolling the fenders in the front and rear right?

well I am rolling the fenders on the rear but as far as the front goes I did not wanted to roll the fenders since I want to keep the splash shields , or fuck it and roll them lol , or do you think if I do the front ones wider (9 or 9.5) they will clear the fender??

The stock rear wheel will fit on the front fine. The only problem is you will have to grind a tab of the bottom of the brake caliper to get the wheel to bolt on.

I would definitely put rear wheel on the front before I widened the front wheels and needed to use spacers.
