from the looks of the wheel face...id guess 18x9.5 or 10.5 and between +12 and +19 offset (effective)

tires, probably 235 or 245/40 front, and 255 or 265/35 rear.

17x10 +18 all around, 10mm spacers in the rear. Running Federal RT615 (235/40) up front (so that's like a 245/40) and Yokohama S-Drives (245/40)

It's not really a question about wheels but it has to do with fitment and all that jazz.
Anyways, I was trying to figure out what size front wide fender would I need to match up the width of the stock rear end, so I can use the same size and offset all around but not have to use different tire sizes on the front and rear?
Kinda see what I'm getting at?

are you talking about these wheels?



if so, they came in 15", I think the specs are similar to the 7 spoke SE wheels in which case will not fit 30mm calipers without spacers: 15mm would be the smallest.

The problem with Z32 brakes + SE wheels isn't offset, it was spoke design. If you have 26mm calipers, it wouldn't really matter because those fit perfectly with SE wheels.

15in? i was mistaken then.... they are the aluminum z32 calipers.

thanks for the info, i can do more focused research from this

S13 rear fenders pull really easy, you just have to heat them up and do it slowly so they are smooth.

I've been looking through a bunch of threads, but haven't found a definitive answer

Will 17x9 +12 wheels with 245/40/17 star specs fit under s13 front fenders with a pull or should I just go with overfenders?

I have some 17x8 +24 with 225/45/17 wheels on my car now and they are flush with stock fenders and ~0.5 degrees of camber. The star specs run wider than normal as well.

zoopreme your wheel fitment is perfect! How much camber are you running in the front and what kind of work did you do to the fender?

I'm hoping I can get my fitment close to that for autocross without overfenders.

I don't think 17X9 +12 will fit with 245/40 with star specs tires on them without overs. The tire and size are too meaty.

You may not want to stretch tires but have you thought about running like a 215/45? Seems to be a popular choice for those specs.

And to answer the question about the hatch (jimmytang00 of WFC), the fenders were rolled & the pull was about 25mm. Camber in the front is -2.3* and the rears are -3.5*, the rears could have been less if there wasn't a 10mm spacer.

The coilovers are Apexi N1 which are one of the only coilovers (next to Megan Racing) that can accommodate a 10" +18 wheel without spacers.

im going from a 17x10.5-11(225/45) on my front stock body s13 to a 17x9-6(205/45)
using this picture as reference-do you think it should sit perfectly flush/poke a tiny bit?

Thank God you're in this thread. I had been trying to get ahold of you for the longest time. I'm trying to figure out if the Apexi N1 EXV coilover will accomodate the same amount of wheel/tire as your coilovers. Yours are older N1 Pro's, right?

If the newer N1 EXV's won't work out as well, I plan to use Megan Tracks with their 25mm extended brackets to run 17x10+20 with 245/40 tires up front. Is running these sizes just an issue of removing the inner fender lining and a little 'massaging' with a BFH or is there more that I need to be aware of? What can I expect?

Edit: This is for an S13 hatch, BTW...

You know, I'm not too sure if there is a difference between the Pro's and the EXV's bottom mounts are. But eyeballing it, the Pros could be a bit longer. Of that, I'm not TOO sure.

But if there are more sharper eyes & a more vivid imagination, here are the Pros compared to the EXV's

Here are the Pros:


And here are the EVX's:


But with your plan to get the 25mm extended brackets, that should be a sure thing, they will work for sure.

As for those sizes, no matter what, you will need to do some fender work, roll/pull/harness tuck/etc. 10" up front is really WIDE for the S13 & making it work is a hassle. Removing the fender liner is a must but modifying it like Broadfield did here is a great alternative to keep it looking OEM.

Yep, thanks for the help zooopreme!

Im actually on KWs and they have close to stock length lower brackets that have been giving me countless clearance issues up front. Yea, it looks like only wide fenders will work up front. Unfortunately, I live in Hawaii so shipping those fenders are going to cost me an arm and a leg

As for the tire sizes, I currently have 225 RE-01s up front and was hoping to get more traction with the 245s. Just need to make the wheels and tires fit now haha

Just a quick question, Ive been playing with a couple ideas for wheels lately because Im sick of running a 16" wheel on my s13.
Option 1- Ive been thinking of running Z33 25th anniversary wheels in 18x8 and was wondering how much spacer it would take to make it look semi-flush. I dont plan on running a rediculous amount of camber, but I dont want it to look too sunk either. And has anyone done this before? I dont think Ive seen anyone actually bring them out to the fender on an s13.
Option 2- Ive also been thinking about getting a set of Varrestone's TE reps in 18x9 up front and 18x10 out back, but what offset would be best with a very slight pull in the back? Ive been thinking +15 front and rear running 215/45 in the back and 215/40 up front. Suggestions? Corrections?

Option 2 is your best bet....but I was under the impression you would have to get 18X9.5 and 10.5 because they don't make whole sizes, only halfs.

That being said I'd get a 18X9.5 +15 and 18X10.5 +22 with 215/40s and 225/40s, that should only require a slight pull out back.

OR

You could run their new 17X9 +12 up front with 215/40s and 18X9.5 +12 out back with 215/40s. That would be nice and make your front fitment easier to deal with.

Run the varreston 9 +12 with 215/40 with good amount of camber. And rear with +15 225/40 on a 10j you are gonna need a pull and some camber also. It will look 1000x better.

Edit: dammit 95ka beat me to it again. Ha. S13 also is a 17/18 must.

Right on thanks guys! The only reason Im considering the Z's is that theyre a good looking 18" wheel thats dirt cheap. I probably will end up doing 9.5 +15 up front and 10.5 +22 out back, the less I need to pull the better. Oh and theyll be 18's all around, I just want that extra little bit of clearance in the front without compromising fender gap.

Haha, yeah Ive thought about it, some of those Cobra reps dont look too bad and have some pretty good offsets too. I actually really like these-clickTheyre two piece and you can get em in custom sizes and offsets, but theyre a little more spendy than those cheap reps!

An 18x10 in the front will probably rub regardless of tire size, do work with your favorite hammer

The front fenders are rolled and might do a slight pull. Are you saying to hammer the inside of the wheel well? Cuz thats the area that im sure will be rubbing.
