    Anyone know if a stock 430 wheel and tire combo will fit on a 355?

    Using reverse logic 430 rims fit 360's and 360 rims fit 355's so perhaps 430 rims will fit a 355. I have not seen it done but I really like the idea, I think it would look awesome. :)

    It can be done Robbie, but the wheel off-set is different. :):)

    To do it properly, the hub of the 430 wheel would have to be machined to remove material so the wheel does not stick out as much when they are bolted onto the 355. I would LOVE to see 430 wheels on a 348/355. :):)

    The 360 wheels bolt onto 348/355 but they do stick out a little past the gaurds IIRC. :):)

    +1 ........... the stock rear 430 offset will stick out too far on a 355.... :( ........ though as Pap mentioned ............ if there is enough hub interface material to remove say 10-15mm without compromising structure ........ then they should look pretty damn good ... :cool:!!

    They certainly look great. I think they are Novitec wheels. :):)

    Robbie the offset is all wrong. I've done a lot of research and have had them on my car. I wish I took a picture.

    They will not fit.

    Call me if you want to discuss..........
