I searched, couldnt find anything specific to my question. What would be a better fit for the rear of a S13. 18x9 w/38 offset or 18x9 w/15 offset? I am on HKS coilovers and my suspension is fully adjustable (tie rod ends, camber, etc...) I dont want to have to pull my fenders but they already have a very nice roll on them. I dont mind adjusting the camber and I dont have a problem with a nice stretch. I am about to buy wheels and want to do it right the first time, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

18 x 9 +15 all the way. They will fit nicely and won't even come close to the coils. I prefer a bit lower offset, but this will be a nice conservative fit.

Holy quick response batman!! Awesome, i was leaning towards the 15offset but i worried about fender rubbing. Thanks JVD, if anyone has anything else to offer my ears are open.

+15 but the fronts might be a little tight. the rears should be fine

JVD is right, +15 is just right IMO.

Wheel fitment is all a matter of preference really. If I were to run 9's all around they would be +/- 0mm rear, and +10mm front. +15 will look good all around though...

Strangely enough, the +38's won't look bad, I have 17x9 +36 on my hatch and they fit well.
But I would go with the +15, especially since you can adjust height, camber, etc.

yeah, 18x9 -5 and 18x11 +5

I just remembered, you will have clearance issues if you run the +38 on the front with coilovers, so definatly go with the +15.

I design wheels for a living, so sometimes I know what I'm talking about, haha.

I'd suggest searching for the "What Spec Wheels does Everyone Have (http://www.zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=44300&highlight=spec+wheels)" Thread and "The Ultimate Wheel Buyers Guide (http://www.zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=82859)" Thread. There is alot of good info in those threads. Personally I'm trying to model this fitment for my wheels.

Only Rolled, no pull.
Here's the post.

Thanks to -=RS13=-. :bow:

I'll be running 18x9 +15 and 18x10 +35 with larger tires and worked fenders. :rawk:
