I have some 17x9 for the front and some 17x9.5 for the rear, the wheels are +12 offset. I am wondering what size rubber to put on there, it is going on an s13 with coilovers, not lowered too much, and i honestly am not good with avoiding the curbage, so i want to stay away from the stretched look, any suggestions, will there be clearance issues?

Until you get into the negative offsets, or single digit offset up front with a 9.5, you're good to go.

Even then, most that you would have to do is either to hammer the fender well, or to pull the front fenders a little bit.

ur kidding right.....

i bet you most people would have a TOUGH time fitting 17x13-26 in the rear with bulging 50mm overs....

to put it in persective. i run a 17x9.5 +12 in the front of my s14.... a 17x13 -26 will effective stick out 81mm more.... and dont forget that one needs to turn the wheel for steering..... tubbed fenders would be least of your worries.

to my knowledge they do not come in negative or zero offsets. 18x9.5 in the rear should be pretty simple to fit in the front and rear. roll your fenders and hammer the high spots of your wells.

Someone on this forum once said "dont ask a stupid question if you dont want a stupid answer" I'm not saying your question is stupid, but why in the hell do you want to run a 17 x 13 in the front in the first place? Trying to be gangSTAR or what? because performance-wise, that makes absolutely 0 sense. So to you answer your questions.. NO, thats just not smart.

I dont know the 13 chassis all that well at all. I've heard of peoples running 10 wide up front, but I'm not exactly sure what the fine details were, theres a gang of info in the "fitment whore" thread you just gotta find it, lol. or search Zilvia. I would think you can do it, maybe with a minor pull? But like I said, thats a pure assumption hahah.

Do I need extended wheel studs to run a 3mm spacer for the S14 front? Is it safe to run a 3mm spacer on stock wheel studs?

How long are stock S14 wheel studs anyways? I know Nismo has 50mm and 60mm ones, and Peak Performance is 60mm

rears will fit but the fronts won't. you'll need to run a spacer for the front.

"So, will a 17x13 -26 front 17x14 -36 rear fix under a s13, with 20mm front and 50mm overfenders?"

yea, that ant gunna happen. even 10's 10.5 is pushing it in the front of an S13. anything over 12" wide in the rear is pushing it. someone ran 18x13 in the rear with 70mm overs.

I have a S14 and I'm thinking about trading for some XXR 521's 18x10 +25 all around. I need to know if they will rub my suspension before I pull the trigger. I'm not a fan of the mexiflush, super poke look and I can't afford overs so I want to avoid spacers.

I used the 1010 calculator and determined that I will have 29mm less inside clearance. Does anybody know what the clearance is with the stock wheels and if I will rub or do I need to crawl under there and measure? I will be running GR2's with Eibach springs.

Any help would be awesome.

Dude, your question is basically answered in the post immediately above yours, except with 5 millimeters difference. So the advice is the same, except your spacer will need to be 5mm less.

Crawl under your car and measure, then convert and calculate, purchase and test fit, then modify (if neccesary), then re-fit. Repeat as needed until you're satisfied.

I see that you quoted my post but you obviously didn't read it. First of all 5mm could be the difference between fitting and not fitting. Secondly, I clearly stated that I don't want spacers. Finally, if I can't afford overs what makes you think that I can afford to buy, and test random sizes without knowing if they fit. That's the whole reason I'm asking the "experts" in here, so I can avoid wasting money on wheels that don't fit.

Thank you for basically not answering my question at all, lol.

Anybody else have any "real" help.


Edited to add: I crawled under the car and did the best I could at measuring the clearance between the OEM wheels and the strut housing. I came up with approximately 21mm, give or take. So it looks like the 18x10 521's wont fit without spacers on the front, w/ shocks and springs.

Again, there is approx. 21mm clearance between factory wheels and susp, hope this helps someone in the future.

The 16x10's would be hard to fit, probably impossible up front.

Okay, so im as new as they come on tire fitment. im trying to make sense of the diagram. ill make this short and sweet. Will a 17x10 +20 offset (6.29 backspacing) fit on the front of a stock 89' 240 hatchback? and 18x10 +20 offset (6.54 backspacing) fit on back? Fenders are rolled. suspension is stock (for now) how big of a spacer will i need? 20 or 40mm wide fenders?

Thanks again for the help.
