    would a 205/55/15 fit or should I break down and build the wheel to 15x8 et 16?

      I made a mistake measuring the wheels.
      So officially, and now without a mistake this time...

      Going to be running Ground Control coilovers.
      What's the best tire size for them?

        16x6" wheel. Looking for a flush offset. What do you think? I am looking at a wheel right now with an offset of ET35+15mm hubcentric spacers.

          Not even kinda close. AlpineE30M52 had to go 16 x 9 ET 8 in front to get a "flush" fitment up front.

          So 16 x 6, ET -18, is that right Jay?

            Easier with a 205/50/15. But still that'll be tough without pulling.

              lol, nice.

              195/50/16, 205/45/16, 205/50/16, 215/40/16, 215/45/16 are all pretty easy to get on there, probably without any fender rolling at all.

                You should just mount two of them. Per hub.

                ET-a billion sounds right. I don't think you can ever make that look good, but I can't account for taste.

                BTW I was staying at the Crowne Plaza in SS and spent a whole bunch of time crawling up and down downtown SS in traffic Valentine's weekend. I genuinely like the area though.

                  or

                  -15x8.5 et06 and 15x9 et00

                  Here's 15x8 et12 and 9x15 et03




                  I need your opinion.

                  My rear fenders are rolled by the way. I think it can be done cause 15x8.5 et06 is as wide as 16x9 et15 with 5mm spacers and a lots of people are running that setup. What are you thinking ?

                          Sorry tried searching but this thread is too big. I have a set of 17x7.5s. Don't know the offset but the fronts are not clearing if I use one of the balanced wheels with weights. What is my cheapest solution? And I was told I need a hubcentric spacers. How are these different from regular ones, and are H&R spacers hubcentric? Also what size do you guys recommend? Thanks

                            It ends up being a fairly similar fitment, yes. With rolled fenders and 205/45 or 215/40 tires you should be fine.

                              No spacers needed. For the rear 215/40/16 is the common choice, so for a matching front you'd want 195/45/16 (which is expensive and rare) or a 205/45/16 (much easier to find).

                                Just, no.

                                Federal 595. It's seriously an excellent tire. Sets of 4 on ebay for just over 200.
