If so I recently purchased a 2015 RTI absolutely love the wheels on it but being as I believe that their 8" wide I can't go wider than A255 tire does anybody know if anyone makes this exact same rim in a wider width so only have to buy 2 of them for the rear and not the whole car I only want to go with like A275 but I do drive my 8 year old daughter rounded and I wanted to be safe

Not sure if an aftermarket option exists. There are companies that will take your 8” wheel and widen it.

Welcome to the Forum from Alabama. I am assuming those are factory wheels. You might reach out to Luke @ Steve White Motors. If they ever made them wider, he would know.
Congrats on the new ride. Good luck!

How about your daughter needs her father so even if you never put her in the car you should still be concerned if it was remotely a safety issue.

I'm changing mine from OEM 9" (19.7 offset) to 8.5" (15 offset). Same tire width, less weight. Fills the wheel well same as the 9" + increased air flow to the rotors.

I would find a set of the dynamics package wheels that are 9.5" wide and use those. You can probably get away with a 295 tire, which is what mine had. I have a second set but I keep them for the drag strip, if I ever get a chance to go. Look around and you may be able to get a decent deal on some, or go with reproductions. Like mentioned before, don't try to stretch a wider tire on a rim that is too narrow because you may be worse off that way.

I had those wheels on my RT and no they dont make those in 9".
I ended up getting Scat Pack wheels on mine with tires for $200 from a co worker. I did have to replace the front tires though but still a great deal.
Still have the back tires on it.

Better install Rock Guard/ Flaps so you dont damage the rear quarter panels with stuff thrown up from them.
I have 275's on mine and dont have that problem. Which is good, i dont like the flap guards. Reminds me of old people cars that had them in the 70's with those whiskers on them for curb feelers lol.
