Just about ready to drop some dollars on some custom wheels from RC Components. Does anyone know if there will be any fitment issues with going to a 5.5 inch width on the rear instead of the stock 5 inch size???

I don't think there will be an issue. I have well over an inch between my tire and any obstruction with the stock wheel.

How much Clarence do you have between the belt and tire or frame rails.

Honestly, my lazy tail hasn't even checked the clearance yet. Will be keeping the same size tire as stock, but doubt that a 1/4 inch added to each side of the wheel will cause any problems. Will pull the saddle bags tomorrow to check clearances, but was hoping someone out there had already swapped the rear wheel on their cross country.

Ness offers a 17x6.25 for the Cross Country. Does not suggest any modifications for this, so I assume it would fit...
