Wheel Fitment Question Thread

This thread is to post your question about wheel fitment and is used to HELP EACH OTHER. This is not to talk shit about someone because they want to ask a question about fitment.

Rules:
1. SEARCH! If all fails come here. We are here to help.
2. No shit talking if your not gonna help someone out DONT POST!
3. Pics are not mandatory but will obviously help.
4. The main reason for this thread is to not clutter up the OG fitment thread and stop all the chit chatter.
5. An answer like yes or no obviously wont help so by posting a response your helping to make the question work. If it is seems like an impossible setup a simple no is ok. Make you response useful.

EX: Q: Will a 18x10 +18 fit on an s13?
A: Yes with some camber and stretched tire. Suggested setup 225/40 about 2.3* of camber maybe less with small pull.

Pic:


SIMPLE! JUST SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE!

ANY SUGGESTIONS TO THE THREAD PLEASE PM ME. ITS MY FIRST BIG THREAD. HEHE.

So i posted my car in the fitment whore thread and it seemed to confuse a lot of people so here is my contribution.
My pics have no spacer but you have to remember that when its on the ground its not going to look the same as weight will make the wheels camber in.

17x8 +33, no spacers, stock body, on springs and struts (eibachs and GR-2s if you must know)




i was told it will look like this when its on the ground. except this is 17x8 +35. So you do the math.
Im also planning on running a 215/40 which is what this cars has also


Now for all you s14 guys who may be looking at similar sizes (assuming you can do math) here is similar fitment. Goes to show how much different there is between 13's and 14's.

My 17X8 +5 looked like this with a 215/40:






Once I put the coils on and added some camber I actually had to run a 15mm spacer, haha.





Thats with about -2.5* camber.

This is the first car i can think of that has a lot of width and a good camber. Maybe he can chime in and help. But im think your gonna end of with a lot of poke depending on your aliment settings. I say go with a 255/35 for stock fender and super sweet pull.

Also found this it is the the same width and hes running 225/40 federals, so expect a lot of poke and camber without over fenders.

Forgot about this thread. Lets use it!

I need tire and camber suggestions. Im going to be running a 17x9.75 +25 all around. From calculations I'll need a spacer in the front so I have 10mm spacers for te front. Now this car will be drifted so what camber should I be running up front and out back? Currently I'm at about -2 in the front and -.5 out back. And I'm planning on running a 225/45 sounds good? Lmk

If your car is slammed and with that amount of camber I'd run a 245/40 or 235/40 for traction sine you need grip for drifting.

With you having suspension arms and all that running minimal camera is possible but it means running a stretch tire. So 215/40 is suggested with minimal pull and your super slammed.

I could be wrong, but I'd figure you'd need "a little" more than that.

11 +9?

Soo I have 9.5 +17, which fits perfect with a slight roll.

With 11 +9 you're going to need to extend the fender out another 26mm, which is more than a little fender arch work.

A nice roll and pull will get you there. I don't know why you would want to be under -1* of camber though, around 1-1.5 is guuuuuuud.

Also, I feel like these two links could help people out a lot...

Wheel Offset Calculator -- Wheel Offset Calculator

^ So basically enter the wheels you have now, and the ones you want, it tells you how much wider the new ones are going to be.

And then there is this more advanced one which takes into account tire sizes ect...

Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset and Tyre Stretch -- This one is cooler, just takes a little more time.

here is my question about S14 wheel fitment
for the rear to be able to tuck 20's like this dude
what offset would the wheel need to be for the rear to tuck and not have the rear fenders pulled, just rolled (obviously flatten the inner lip against the body, but still left stock looking on the outside)

these wheels in picture MMR HR3 come in 20x8.5 +35 or 20x9.5 +40
im guessing he bought the 20x9.5 +40
i want to know what spacer he is running to have the car the way it is, or no spacer at all?
also how much camber do you think he is running? -2, -3??
that question is just for the rear

now question for the front
lets say this car had a S15 front end conversion running S15 stock metal fenders
i been told that the S15 fenders are wider than S14 fenders
So if i want to run 20x9 or 19x9 in the front with S15 fender than what would the offset need to be to be tucked similar to the s14 in picture running lets say -4 camber

Im going for this look on the S14

ive done lots of research and tried to find the wheels specs on it but no luck.
i came to the conclusion that its probably 19x9 +6 front and 20x10 +23 rear
this is based on multiple pictures that i seen of the Empress wheels in diff offset for the 9in and 10in

someone please answer these question for me if you really know, if you have no idea please don't try to guess
Thanks

all these questions are honestly silly

stop worrying about the offset pretty much get the lowest you can

if you're going for the 326 look you're going to have to run a lot of camber and in the end you'll probably have to use spacers

326 runs -7 to -10 degrees of camber in the FRONT and some what less in the rear

right now on my S14 my fitment goes like this

stock fenders with flattened lips

-7 degrees front -6.5 rear

17x9 +22 front with 33mm spacer

18x10 +19 rear with 15 mm spacer

I could easily lower the car and it would be tucking like you want

its all in the camber

dude i know its all in the camber
thats not what im asking tho
i know you can buy a 18x10 with -whatever offset and put it on the car and run like -8 of camber or whatever just to make it fit
thats not what im trying to do tho

i want a 20x10 in the rear tucking like 1in of rim and just want to know what offset the wheel needs to be to run like 2, 3 or 4 degrees of camber
thats all

Im looking at running 16x10 zero offset wheels in the front on my s13. Probably going to run 205/45s on them too. My question is, am i going to have any problems with rubbing coils or frame? Also, think i could get away with running little to no camber at all?

Heres a exact car with what you looking for and he doesn't look like hes running a lot of camber so its possible with proper alignment.

hey guys! idk.. i like my fitment but then sometimes i feel like this can be alot better. specs are 17x9.75+25 and a 6mm spacer in the rear. tire size for the front is 215/45 which might be a bit overkill on the stretch and im running 224/45 in the rear. im rubbing on top of the wheel wells so any opinions on a more "fit" tire size? im also running-2 degrees of camber all around

on a 350Z, 18x10 wheels, will -5 offset require pulling the rear fender? or will just roll and some stretch work? im not on coils yet, just springs that lower a little over an inch...

Fronts will fit no problem with the lip flattened. Rears will need ~-3 camber and a slight pull.

This is ~-2.5 camber with a 255/40/17 BFGs on a 17X11 +12.



Front shot:



The fronts in those photos are 17X10 +7 with 245/40 S-Drives and ~-2.7 camber.
