Heyas,

Quick question for S13 tire fitment. Have a completely stock Silvia coupe.

I found a clean set of Advans 16x7 +30 (front) and 16x 8 +30 (rear)

Looking for all-season tires but stuck on sizes. I know some of these are difficult to find, but any advice on what would offer a nice look?







And secondly, a (12mm) spacer in front would probably widen the wheelbase, but would I see a difference in traction, or would this lead to other concerns?

Thank you so much for your time/input.

RPF1 Wheel Fitment S14

Hey guys, I have done my research and I wanted to verify that what I am going to do it correct.

My wheels are RPF1 17x9.5 +18

I want tires that will require the least amount of body work (rolling or pulling)

Tires that I will be getting bases on my research:

Front: 225/40/R17 Rear 255/40/R17.
Based on my research, I am not sure if I should do 225 or 235 in the front. I did some calculations and I believe that the 225 tire would be stretched to much. Thanks in advance for the advice.

^225/40r17 is difficult to come by. 225/255 would look kinda awkward since the front would be stretched and the rear would be square. i'd suggest either running 235 front or just going 255 all around if you like that meaty look.

Hey Thanks for the quick reply.
What do you think about 235 front and 245 rear?
Would that clear my fenders?

Thanks for the advise. Any recommendations on what should I do if I donít want to roll the fenders? Different tire size or different wheel specs?
Thanks

if you ever wanna run anything decently sized you're going to need to roll your fenders. there are probably a dozen people in chicago who can roll your fenders for like $100.

i dont know why, but im starting to see more and more people who dont want to roll fenders (not just on zilvia). its not like its a big deal. youre going to have to roll them now, or after you have tires that have been chewed through, just roll the god damn fenders now and be over with it.

I wanted to research all the options I have before I commit to rolling my fenders.
My car currently has 36,000 miles and has never been repainted or seen salt. As a car enthusiast....I want to preserve the natural beauty in this car. However, I am willing to roll the fenders if I donít come to any potential solutions.
I appreciate your advice.

that makes more sense now. with that said, you may be better off getting another one if you dont want to mod your 36k chassis.

ROLLING and PULLING are two different stories. rolling simply flattens the lip on the inside of the fender so the tire wont catch it. usually, if no bondo or shitty bodywork has been done and a heat gun is used, no other body/paint work will need to be done. pulling is when you massage the fender metal to make more clearance, which in some cases cause fenders/quarter panels to warp, dimple, or paint to crack or flake. if you don't want to roll the fenders, then don't bother even modifying the car.

Alright guys need some help with tire size selection. Wheels are 18x9+22 on a stock metal s13 Silvia with just a roll and no pull.

1. Do I run 35 or 40 series sidewall upfront, and for the rear do I do 35 or 40?
2. I assume 225/235 is what I should run as far as tire widths.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think this is correct. Remember its an s13 silvia coupe. That would need a pull for sure and wont fit with just a roll. Maybe with some crazy camber, but that defeats the purpose of running such a big tire.

Can anyone else help?

yeah uh those are kinda beefcake-spec. really a lot of variables like height, camber, and car use to take into account. if it's not tucking tire and just gonna be used for grip, 225/40, 235/40 will be fine. if it's tucking tire, 225/35, 225/40. if it's tucking and you're trying to drift, 215/35, 225/40. probably going to need a 5-10mm spacer up front to clear coilovers (if you have them).

Not exactly the specs you're inquiring about, but my rears are estimated +25 on a 17x10. Stock sheet metal with Navan side skirts. I have photos posted in the ZENKI Love thread if it'll help.
