What offset? I was running a 17X10 +7 with a 245/40 up front with minimal rubbing. It would rub at full lock and on a few places on the inside of the wheel well, but nothing that messed the tire up or made noise.

That's on a kouki though, a zenki would need to run a small 235/40 to fit and maybe a slight pull.

I am looking for wheel and tire specs for a zenki. If someone was to have a square tire setup or a little wider, all wheel offsets the same, stock suspension alignment specs, no spacers, tire size the same and your car has a fender roll only, what is the wheel width (please include the lowest and highest offset) that wont rub when you put tires on? I don’t think ride height play’s into this as you can buy links and bars to adjust you back into stock camber/caster/toe specs. I know the zenki’s are generally 5mm less wide in the front than a kouki, so would Indolent's setup fall under what I am trying to do? what would look different / same? any rubbing issues?

Federals just run bigger over all, sidewall and width, but you should be fine with a 225/40 regardless because it'll be like you're running a small 235.

Its difficult to follow exactly what you're asking, but yes his set up will work on a zenki. He looks to have maybe 1 deg of front camber, if you had coilovers and were to run ~-2.5 up front and ~-2 out back you'll be just fine with his set up. That amount of camber will be beneficial to handling and wont eat your tires up.

^My 18x9.5 +22 225/40/18 slightly rubs, with -.5 camber, If your 10 offset lower, i would recommend just a roll no pull. When i put my 25mm spacers on i do need a roll and a slight pull. But nothing major.

thanks, my rear fenders are rolled pretty good, so hopefully i can just dial some camber in and lower the car a bit! thanks for the help.

Got a question about getting the rear end to go lower. With megan streets, once I remove the collars the coil bottoms out in the sleeve. There is a little lip preventing the coil from going farther into the sleeve. I could easily file down this little lip to get the coil to thread farther. If I can get it lower I can finish fitting them.

Safe or unsafe?

How it sits now:

17x9.75 +5 -3* f/17.975 +25 -2ish* r

^if you file it down, do you plan on using the thread on the top half (before the lip)? I don't see why it would be dangerous unless the thread on the top half isn't the same size then that would be a problem.

Thanks for the reply.

It's more like a stopper inside the sleeve for the bottom mount. I was just wondering if there was some "reason" as to why they put a stop there. The threads are the same.

Ah I see, I'm not certain as to if that's a real big deal or not...I want to say "they're there for a reason" but at the same time, I don't see why something would go wrong if it's just a slight drop passed the initial stopper point.

hey I tried searching but no luck. Im wanting to pull my camber out to -0.5 of close to it. I have 17x9 spaced out to +8 with -2* camber and roll and pulled my fenders ~15mm. Dont really want to pull anymore so will a 30mm fender maybe pushed in a bit be flush?? If not ill just take out the hammer and pull more

you can droop the rear springs so that the last collar is touching the top of the sleeve to go lower

yes it will rub the wheel well, you cant even slam it. I'm having the same problem now 225/40 s drives, going down to 225/35 up front.

Going off my personal opinion that 9 +12 w/ a 215/40 is basically perfect on a stock body S13 - you can fit a 12 -20 out back and a 10 -25 up front. If you wanted to run 10s and 11s you could do the 10 -25 up front and 11 -33. You'd probably need to run 225/40s and 245/40s on the 10/11 and 225/40s and 255/35s on the 10/12.

I should note that is all based on calculation alone, not personal experience. I would imagine that would also include ~3 deg of camber all around.

ok i have a s13 coupe

whats the most aggressive wheels spec i can put on it without spacers or rolling or pulling my fender

was looking at rota grids 17 x 9.25 +12
or
xxr 527 17x9.75 +25

would either of these work i would prefer the xxr if they fit easy

thanks!

Rota Grids don't come in 9.25, do they? I think they only have a 9-9.5. So I assuming you're talking about the 9.5"

Running aggressive sizes will require rolling/pulling your fenders. 9.5 +12 in the rear is going to need a roll & a slight pull depending how low you go & depending on your tire sizes.

527's require spacers up front to clear any coilovers, the smallest spacer size that I've seen (so far) was 8mm. But maybe somebody can chime in and say that smaller size spacers will work.

And even then you will require rolling the fenders & a slight pull.

My Question: on Rota's site, are the IK-R's supposed to be the new name for the Grids? I tried looking for "Grids" and they didn't seem to have it & the IK-R's look real similar to the 17" Grids.

^please don't lol

if you want a flush fitment, you'll need spacers for the wheels to even get close to the fenders (and maybe to clear the coils, I'm not 100% on whether they clear or not). But I mean if a non-aggressive fitment is what you want, go for it.

There was actually a thread that I found, apparently a 20mm spacer + 8.25 will serve the same as the 9.75" --http://zilvia.net/f/s-chassis/391651-xxr-527-17x8-25-25-a.html

Ok so before I pull the trigger I want to know if this combo will even work. Im currently deployed and I figure if I'm gonna buy the baller a** SSR wheels I want, might as well do it up the first time around. 17x9.5 0 offset for the front with 225/35R-17 and the rears are 17x12.0 -7 offset with a 275/40R-17 tire. The tires are Yokohama S drives, I've been reading all the pages and taking notes. I'll be staying 4x114.3 and am wondering will I have to run spacers and if so what size? I was looking at the Project Kics 20mm and 30mm spacers.I also would like to know what would be the best disk to run. I'm ordering a bunch of parts every month for my build and am settling on the same coilovers I got from S*A*G*E auto in Va beach the first time(sold that 240 though), Fortune Auto 500 series. Any info and input would greatly be a appreciated. If I get flamed oh well, I just dont want to waste my money on some wheels I wouldn't be able to fit on my car and it not look right. I understand overfenders will be needed(20mm front and 50mm rears by Origin will be ordered in December) when I get all my parts and I get home a full build thread will be made up. Thanx in advance

Question...
I have stock unmolested 97 fenders, Don't want to do any pulling or rolling. I am thinking of getting either 15x8 +0 225/50/15 or 225/60/15. Or 16x8 +0 with 225/50/16 or 225/60/16 I would like to have some meat in there. I like the look. I don't really like the rubber band tires (35 or 40). I know it's not 255 like others on here, But its all stock motor. No need for tires that wide..... yet..... leaning more towards the 15x8s

Plans are this combo, aftermarket arms, sways, c/o, have just not installed. don't plan on going slammed just a little bit lower. We have potholes here with their own facebook page. Yeah it's THAT bad.

about time we have a "will it fit thread"

@J.Lupe- Is that kind of stagger beneficial in a performance aspect?

Anyway, 9.5" 0 is fine for the fronts especially if you're going to go with 20mm overs.

As for the rears, I would STRONGLY recommend a smaller width. If more grip is what you're looking for a 10.5 with meaty tires should do you fine.

But if you seriously want to run the 12", 17X12 -18 will work. Alistair ran those with fender flares + stretched tires so with 50mm overs, that should be fine.

@hellion240Sx- Go with the 16's and run 205's with the tires please, 15's on a S14 look awkward & they will fit but you will need a roll at least.

This is a 17X8.0 +30...do the math with a 0.
