I'm thinking I will go with either a 15x8 +13 or 0 offset all around or a 9. A 9 might be sticking out too much on the fronts maybe? Rosebud car has fender flares and trying to fit wider wheels without going that route if I can. I daily this thing going to college and what not so it needs to be able to hop those speedbumps and not die on the freeway jumps as much as I'd like to slam it on the frame.

Going to use a 55 or 60 sidewall on the 15" wheels so to keep the gap small haha
A top down view. I don't need speed hunters shot of your strut tower.

50 series or die unless you plan on keeping at that current ride height.

Fatlace makes some, or some cheepie NS mesh with spacers. No offense but I take it this is on a budget. Anything is better then steel trailer wheels IMO
Running 215/60/15 NS Mesh with 25 spacer, effective offset 0. Still need to dial it in, since the trans is fucked, im busy and it cold.

this is a 15x8.5 et-6 which is the same "poke" as a 15x9 et0 would have with 205/50 all around. car wasnt too low at this point and is lower on 17's now. less then a finger gap between tire and fender in the front and less gap in the rear, hopefully this helps. 60 series looks terrible IMO, as tall as id ever go on a 15 is 195/55.

I'm sure the roads vary anywhere you are. I've driven through ny and it was brutal. I think what it really comes down to is your own commitment to having a low car.

This is last year when i'd scrape my exhaust and feel bad about it lol


and this year, with tucked exhaust and skid plate, scrapes a lot more.


I'm from east canada where ice is constantly freezing and melting which seriously fucks up the roads, but it's worth it

15x9 et0 front 15x10 et-25 or so rear. Car is in the worst shape it's ever been because it gets used, but now I feel like it fits in this thread pretty good

Yeah, my roads are not that great in some areas (mostly in towns). But I still rock my car low cuz it wouldn't look great raised up. Maybe when I get my bumper and skirts ordered I'll raise it some.

SpeedHunters shot lol. Yeah I figured 50 sidewall for a 15" isn't too bad and 55/60 might just be too tall.

I was thinking a 15"x8 0 offset. Maybe push something stupid like a 15"x10 with +20 offset with a crazy stretch from a 205/50/15. Have the wheel poking out while keeping the tire tucked under the fender.

So many speedbumps here, potholes, steep grades and driveways, uneven roads. Would totally wreck this as a daily. I don't know how some people do it here in LA. But it looks amazing. Your car is what I want mine to look some day.

Thanks man. Camber is a bunch, don't have any exact numbers. I'm going to do a 195/55/15 on the 10. Your car is awesome man.

We emulate them and fail in this style of build. Hence the unmatching and unpainted body panels and bad aero/decals.

He takes it as a style cue and purposefully makes his car look like USDM side of things. Kinda ironic but I supposed USDM really does have it's own style.

These new equips are dooooope, just a matter of time for the tire companies to start making legit tire sizes (Street tires and other than maxxis).
