does anyone know how wide the stock wheels are?

i just don't like how thin they are....they look kinda small when you look at the car from the back...

are they 7 or 7.5?

the best set-up I have ever seen here is 17x8 on the front and 17x9 on the back... 38 offset and 35 offset on the back... fenders rolled in and hopefully I will get some volks wheels exactly like that!
