Wheel size

Mornin' all

Im just curious to know what the maximum wheel width that can fit on a standard 99 is. How wide can I go without anything rubbing? Keep in mind, the front is half an inch lower, and the car may be lowered an inch further in the future. Is it 7 or 6?

Thanks

i would think you should be able to get a 7" in there, i know that in a c900 7" is the max, but 7.5 can be squeezed in there. its mostly about the offset, i dont think theres much less clearance in the 99's compared to the c900.

Another quick question, what suspension and brake parts (if any) can be lifted straight off a 900 and be bolted to a 72 99? Ive read somewhere that the entire rear axle can go in without too much hassle. But what about just brake calipers and other components?
