You could. I dont know if I would like it, but if it is what you want go with it. IMO it would be hard to fill the wheel wells even with a killer drop.

You can not use a 14 inch rim on the xb so I would imagine 13inch does not work either. The 14" rim does not fit over the calipers.

Well I think Scotty posted a site or some pics explaining the back spacing in conjunction with the type of wheel (eg J) that showed how much spacing was available on for the caliper.

It would take the right wheel to clear all the brake components - but hey if the shoe fits - Wear It!

really big tires? saw some killer 13"-15" wheels on siphon mag looks like a ninjastar.
This is probably what you refer to. I've been looking into these. Haven't got word as to the price yet. Also, not sure I want to roll on 15x7.5s. Pretty cool SSR Star Shark fakes though. I might have to pick up a set for the hell of it.

Anyone else have info on these?

Those Dayton 13s are pretty freaking sweet. I would actually love to do a flat black xB with those rims, on air. (not like the one at SEMA though) Someone wanna donate an xB for a sick project?

I was going to suggest some wire wheels, someone had to beat me to it!

Maybe some old school Supremes.

13s will fit depending on the wheel while i was at axis i test fit, and was gong to buy but they sold out....damn... they were 13x7 axis VPD drag wheels, 25 offset, they cleared the brakes on the front but jus barely, i dont think there would be enough room on the inside of these wheels to attach the weights needed to balance the wheels, hope this helps
