^15s are hard to pull off on a S14, IMO 16s suit it better like the ones posted on page 33
Anyways here's an S14 on 15s

Just do it all at once. That way you only have to do the work once. And "get used to it" once.

Going from completely stock to upgraded everything is a big change. I'm not used to driving a lowered car. Potholes are serious in New Orleans. Besides, I keep running into time crunches and missing parts, to parts not fitting etc etc etc. Trying to find the sweet spot with 12k/10k Coilovers. Perfect world isn't so perfect.

You'll only have to adjust to a harsher ride. As long as you don't intentionally plow into potholes or treat steep inclines as launch ramps, you'll be okay.

If you participate in any of the aforementioned driving habits, please post pictures.


anyways

Time crunches as in only have certain days/time to do little by little. 2 jobs and a start up business along with family and daily life.

I will NOT be plowing into potholes or steep inclines. I have gotten used to driving full stiff and full soft. Just gotta find the right balance. Tried full stiff in front full soft on back and that feels great so far. Going to nothing it down a few clicks.

really the only reason why i am is because i want to go with a 10 inch wide wheel without having a -30ish offset. also its hard to find a good tire size for 15's that are wide. the widest i could find in the sidewall i wanted was a 205/55/15

maybe try this link

Ecstas, 912s, Proxes 4s, Maxxis Victra things, R1Rs or R888s if you're feeling ballin'...

i guess BFG stopped making theirs though. and a few others look to be out of production now too. the era of short wide tires is quickly coming to an end.

didn't you already ask this before?

i'll repeat myself again: it depends on the wheel design. some wheels are reverse mount, some are not. the inner barrel diameter and shape varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model.

do you have a specific wheel in mind, or are you just trying to collect fitment data on ever 15" wheel ever made? lol
