What rim width, Size, and Offset should I use?

Post by sr20ve510 » 17 Oct 2009 08:51

I have Megan coilovers in the front with a 280z set up. Right now I have SSR Reverse mesh on the front 15x7.5 +5 and they are rubbing.
I am getting 14's R-Type watanabe's and I was trying to get some opinions on how big I can go with rim width and offset. I want to get really crazy with them. Let me know what you think. thanks!

flare your fenders go as wide as you want. I have ran 0 to +12 now and had no problems with the sets of rims I have ran. Just adjust your tires and height to see fit.

280Z, or 280ZX? ZX takes a 15x6 +12, so you can extrapolate from there.

What does "really crazy" mean?

Are you talking flares? Lots of work otherwise and you may not get there with the fronts in any case. We'll also need to know how low the car is going to sit, something useful like at the rockers. How are you adjusting the rear ride height?
