So I came here and have been reading the whole thread. I recently got a set of TE37's sitting in my buddies garage. They are 18x9+35 and I'm worried they won't fit but I think I could work with them. I have a stock bodied s14 (not even touched fenders and wheel wells) sitting on FA 500 Series Coilovers. I wont be able to try them on for a couple of weeks. Should I get my hopes up on them not rubbing my coils? The Offset is a lil too positive for me but I got them for a steal and I'm running stock SE 16s. Please help wheel fitment noob here.

18x9+35 will touch the coilovers in the front. you need +20 offset minimum for about 5mm clearance

17x9 +30 r33's fit no problem on stock S14 with 5 millimeter spacer. Would likely fit without spacer too. As do 16x8(?) +35 z32 wheels.

I'm looking to buy rota D2 wheels in gold.
But the off sets make it hard to desided what to do
I want
17x7.5 in the front
And 17x8.0 in the rear
But seeing that I'm 4x114 bolt pattern the 8.0 wide wheels only come in +35 off set
So I'm going 8.5 in the rear
I guess my questions are
What would be a good offset for the front and rear for best handling no drifting.
And is that a ok staggered size..?
I think I'm going to get set on fire for this.... But oo well I got tuff skin!

a staggered setup will promote understeer. i would personally go with the D2's in 17x8.5 +20 all around.

Conversion: 1 INCH = 25.4mm

example: 17x10 rim is 254mm wide (0 offset for that gives you 127mm sticking out and 127mm going in)

Mods sticky this?

Also please feel free to throw in some exact figures in here as far as whats the maximum clearance you have gotten from rim backspace. Thanks!
i need help with an offset problem. i have r33 skyline breaks with 5 lug swap on my s13 i want to buy rims that will fit without using spacers. what kind of rim and offset do i need if i can get my hands on r33 rims i would buy them right now.

Wheel to caliper clearance isn't really offset dependent or at least not as much as wheel to strut (coilover) clearance is. You need to look into what style 'face' your wheel has and then compare that with your brakes. Some wheels with good offsets still don't clear Z32/R33 brakes because the backside of the face is the wrong shape.

Can someone tell me how this will fit?
front 18x10 -3
rear 18x11 -5

I have an s13 with +25mm front fendes and rear 50mm overs
I'm assuming that I will need 20 mm spacers

I would appreciate any input
