woah!!! This is somethin im definately looking forward to seeing!
yeah they should probably fit mate, the tyres may scrub a bit tho being that wide, but you can fix that up by either rolling the guards or get narrower tyres like 245's or somethin to get a bit of tyre stretch happenin. But i cant see you having too many drama's.

245 is barely a stretch on a 10" :)

nah i doubt itl fit man ul hav to go around +15p offset for front. but for rear it got enough room so can go any but if u want rim-guard filled then go around 15+. or if u got shitty offset then just find the right width spacers to suit and rim width to clear struts. if u have slammed luce with neg camber in the rear then ul hav to use spacers or better offset to keep it clear with struts or ul be hitting struts with rim/tyre when cruising on roads and bumps. my luce is abit low with raised subframe by a inch in the rear and adjustable camber arms to straighten the axles more and camber too. rolled guards in the rear to clear my 17p 17x9 rims in the back. with my other 17x9 rims like 38p+ it will still clear even without rolled but i perfer those 17p rims in the back haha. its my project so still messing round to make it look good

if you go 10inch wide rims make sure ur offset is good and no neg camber or ul run into rubbing issues with the struts . if u sort custom adjustable camber arms then ul have to roll guards to clear wide rims haha i will go 10in wide rims in the rear 1day with 9in wide in the front. 20mm spacers with +38p for front is sweet and wont rub, any wider spacers will rub if ur rolling low height. with rears u can go up to 25mm spacers with 38P rims only if +20p or less then no spacers needed unless u willing to roll guards . i experienced lots when doing my luce up for a living haha
