Default Can I put 17" rims on 01 Galant w/out any mods?

Sup Guys

I'm looking to purchase a 2000-01 Galant and want to thow some Chrome 17's or possibly 18's on, my question is would I need to modify the suspension in order to do this? or can I just throw em on? Im also looking into dropping it. Can I get some feedback from guys who actually have this type of setup and any problems you might have had with it?

Thanks

What do you mean by "modify your fender"? what's a spacer? How much does it cost? Is it something that I can install?

Thanks

you need to get a wide body fender ( cosmetic ) for your gallant, then a spacer is to space out your wheel.....in order to freely steer a wide wheels.

You can fit 19's without modifing your fender if your run a proper off set and width......

17's will fit with no problem I am running 18's with no problem and this next show season I will be running 19's.

aiight u can use 18s if u want but the tires has to be 215. or if u go 17s thrown in 225 tires. if the rim offset isnt big, no modification is needed. i have 215/45/17 on and rides fine.

I am running 225/40 series with no rubbing. You have to know the correct off set and width.
