    I'm looking to buy a set of 17x10.5 FR500's for the rear and 17x9 for the front.

    Do I have to worry about any rubbing?

    Also what is the widest tires i can put on 9 and 10.5in?

    You don't have to worry about any rubbing with a 10.5" wheel. The widest tire you can go with is a 315 before you start running into any rubbing issues with the exhaust.

    Also watch your quad shock, if you want to go bigger than 315. They are tapered from factory the thick end is toward the rear of the car and of your wanting to run a 335 you flip it to where the narrow end is toward the rear and the thick end closet to the caliper and rotar.
