  • Wheel fitment thread.

    Post pictures of your wheels on your car (only if you think they qualify for flushness!) along with full specs on the wheels (ie 17x9 +18 w/ 235/40r17) and whatever modifications were needed to the body of the car (ie fender rolling, pulling, overfenders).

    Any posts that don't have pictures or proper wheel fitment will be deleted.

    Since i'm at work, i won't post any of mine right now, but I'll post some when I get home.

    Okay so maybe this will help.... i fit my wheels with a roller just to tuck all the edges in... pulling was done on rear with newspaper a heat gun and lots of jumping in my trunk hahaha i like the look of it because its onlly pulled as much as needed to clear the tires... this was just a test fit pic to see if there was rubbing no rubbing so its gonna go lower

    here is what i Have for footwork...
    Kazama adjustable traction arms, Tie rods, Tension rods
    Bings Ruca's
    Silk Road coils

    Wheels are 17x9.5 up front with a +17 offset Federal 595 tires 215/45/17 i know they seem small but federals fit bulky and gay so i had to go smaller than wanted but they actually fit perfect
    Rear is 18x10 +18 offset again bulky federal tires so they are actually a 225/40/18 they fit more like a 235 which is what i wanted

    2 degree of camber all around heres some pics i snapped today











    not for all but i got the look i wanted without overs or mad camber uke:

      Looks good Jared, here is my collaboration of wheels.

      I've got 20mm front over fenders with 6 degree's of camber, and probably at least a 15mm roll/pull on the rear with 1.5 degree's of camber.

      Here is 18x9.5 +12 with a 225/45zr18


      Front is 17x9 +12 with 225/45r17


      18x10+25 and 245/40r18


      17x9+15 and 235/40r17

            The easiest way to make any car better is to tighten the nut behind the wheel.

              uhh.. +25's. The +12 will be a pain to get proper fitment.

                Its funny that you say that because he was given the exact opposite advice on another forum, was told to go with the +12. He said he was willing to do bodywork, so it makes sense to go with the +12 and have better fitting wheels in the long run.

                  INCORRRECTTTT!!!!!!!!!


                  you lose at wheel fitment!!!


                  +12's ftw.....look at mine are 18x10+18 you will be using the same size tire with a smaller rim....you will get less stretch but the tire won't stick out as much

                      17x9.5 +12 gram light 57 optimise

                      tires are 255/40 toyo R888's

                      fenders are stock, unrolled. I just had to bend the lil tabs for the fender liners to stop rubbing on the track.

                      pretty good GTR fitment IMO, sorry bout the celly pics

                          They probably wont fit without spacers.

                            yes it will look like crap, and imo 7.5" is too narrow even for the front.

                              dead straight live rear end means no rear camber capable for me.



                              when the car had stock suspension hahaha always good for a laugh.
