Yes, you can. I have been running a 275/35/19 for over a year; no problems.

my personal fitment guide is: if you want it to fit bad enough... it will.

Hey, what about wheel sizes for us "non-VIP" folks!?!?!

It seems like 8.5" is the "normal" width up front... does anyone know if a 17x9 or 18x9 would fit up front, with say, a 1" drop and no more then 2 or 3 degrees of negative camber?

Or am i asking for trouble by trying to go wider then 8.5 in the front?

You should have no problems with a 9 inch width wheel in the front given you pick the proper off-set

Depending on offset you'll be fine as Zippy guy stated. I have 19x9.5 up front on my car

Thanks folks!
While scrubbing out the wheel wells yesterday, I finally realized how much ROOM is under the darned fenders!

Good to know I can go wider in front!
