Casey Gardener posted a topic in General Automotive ChatHey guys, I finally bought good wheels n tyres for my S15, only to find that the wheel arch doesn't meet the rim (I know I should've checked first.) I love these wheels and would like to keep them but I am concerned about attention from the police and my insurance. Has anyone been through this dilemma? Trying to find some options, i.e roll the guards, added flares i'm open to ideas. Thanks.
YogiR33 posted a topic in MotorsportsHey peeps, Not sure if its been covered or not but where do people buy their rims from and what brand do you use ? What sizes, offsets do you use and why ? Current setup on Cats car is Sil80 with flared std rear guards with 25mm wide front guards. Rear LCA is std S13 with -1deg camber. Front LCA is std S15 with -2.5deg camber. Height isnt too low. Current wheels are : Front, Lenso D1R, 17 x 9, ET-4 Rear, Lenso D1R, 17 x 10, ET+15 The rears im not too worried about as i can always get say a 17 x 9.5 +12 or a 18 x 10 +15 or whatever, that width/offset is pretty common. What I'm a bit worried about is the front, got the car sitting perfect and working really well with with 9" width with -4 offset, where do ppl go if they want aggressive offset wheels ? As the likelyhood if these wheels getting damaged is inevitable and just want to make sure I have replacements ready to go if needed. I've seen that the Volk TE37 comes in a 17x9, ET +0, but worried about inner wheel clearance. Guess extending the lower control arms would help with that but then may run into binding issues with the tierods. I always use the below link to work out my inner clearance and also fitment: http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp So in summary, what wheels offer aggressive/custom offsets and where do you buy them from ?
