max rim width for stock fenders

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I am wondering what is the max width I can go for a 180sx on stock guards with no mods, rolling etc.

 

Will these rims fit nicely?

 

Front - 17x9 +22

Rear - 17x9.5 +18 or 17x10 +18

 

Thanks.

As it's been pointed out before .. Rimtuck.com or check the 500+ page offset thread

without rrolling, you can't fit f**k all.

 

no chance with what you have listed, even though you neverentioned tyres

tyre sizes are important as well. 215s are much easier to fit than 245s.

I have 17x9 +22 front and rear with 245/45/17 KU31s.

 

Fronts rub a bit on the inside at full lock.

 

guards are rolled, lowered springs.

 

had 18x9 255/35/17 same offset and didnt rub on the rear.

Will stick out of guards 1/2" to an inch. Depends on camber too.

Thanks guys.

 

Was thinking of 235 front and 255 rear tyres.

 

Not really keen on rolling the guards but would like to fit widest rims possible.

 

Varvs- you got pics of your car?

Only decent pic of how the wheels fit.

 

as i said earlier: 245/45/17 (or maybe 40?) on 17x9 +22 with rolled guards (not flared)

Hey buddy I've got 9.5 + 20 all round. 225/235. Rolled guards. No scrubing unless I'm kaning it around corners

Nice car varvs. Love that clean look.

 

Thanks Joe.

 

Might go for the rolled guards option then. Can you still fit the guard liners after rolling?

They usually trim the edge off that mates with the guard, so there is a small gap between the liner and the guard.

LEGAL RIDE HEIGHT SILVIA WARNING :puke::sick:

9.5 +35 with 245/40 tyre and 1 degree camber on rear. You can see it pokes out and the guards have needed to have been rolled but would probably hit if it was actually low.

 

 

Previously had 8 +30 with 235/40 on untouched guards and there was barely 1-2mm between the lip and tyre but i don't have any closer picture of that. if you roll your guards 9 +22 like varvs would work if not you are stuck with narrow with high offset. I dont think it looks as Aids as it sounds but it definitely leans towards Daily Driver spec than Cop magnet

Depends on a lot of factors. Camber, tyres/stretch, ride height etc.

 

Use this link http://www.willtheyfit.com , write the figures down and spend 10 minutes with a tape measure up against your wheels and shit.

 

I'm cranking 18x10 +20 on the rear with less then an inch pull on the guards!

This works only because I have approx. 3degrees camber , 235/40 tyres stretched on the rim an the ride height set conservatively (not slammed).

 

On the front I have 18x9 +20, 1.5deg camber, 225/40, conservatively lowered on 100% stock guards, only scrubs slightly on full lock when doing a u-turn.

 

It's all dependent on different factors.
