      I think Iíll go with the Rota Boost wheels. When you get home, could you could post a link to the supplier that stocks these?

      Thanks!!

        Where are you finding 17x8 ET60 wheels in 4x100?

        In any case 35mm adaptors would be the best bet. These are the type of spacer that bolt to the hubs using their own hardware, essentially extending the hub. The wheel then bolts to the adaptor with the stock lugs. With this same setup, 235/40/17 will also be mountable (with fender rolling).

            They're RH ZW-1's... Can you possibly provide me with a link to what I should be looking at? All I can really find are the 4-to-5 lug adapters that the VW guys use for Porsche wheels, and ones for Dually trucks...

            EDIT: Also, can a traditional spacer be run on top of the adapter? For example, if the wheels had a 20mm adapter, could I use a 15mm spacer in addition?

            Thanks

              http://www.amimotorsports.com/oldsite/tires.htm and click the spacer application guide.

              Yes, you can stack them. But it would be much easier to just have custom ones made.

                  After reading through this I was left with a bit of a question / conflicting answers.

                  So would a 16x7 ET35 running 225/46/16 RS2's require any sort of spacer, fender work, etc? Or should I just get a 205/50 and not worry / sacrifice grip for fit?

                      That setup without spacers will be either extremely close to the strut or just plain rubbing it.

                      If you run 15mm hubcentric spacers, you will need to roll the fenders. This is the best combo though.

                        205/50/16 will fit without rubbing.

                        225/45/16 may require a fender roll (but maybe not since your car is an '87 with higher rear arches).

                          Thanks. Is there an in-between route, like a 5 or 10mm spacer that'd do the trick? I'm hoping to avoid spacers period but finding 15-16" x 7-7.5" ET2x rims is a PITA :(

                              Spacers bigger than 5mm but smaller than 15mm are not hubcentric. You will get vibrations, and overall it's not really safe.

                              The only exception to this rule is spacers with oversized outer bores, meaning the wheel is not 57.1mm. But then we're getting into custom spacers.

                                ET15. Run 205 tires to avoid rolling the fenders, 215 or 225 if you want to flatten the lips completely.
