    I can't really imagine how it'd even look (ssr type-f) only type f's i've seen on an s15 were 9.5s i think. I've currently got 17x7 +32 fronts and 17x7.5 +32 rears i think (17" 350z enthusiast rims) but most of what i've seen on s15 is 17x9s or 18xwhatever.
    I've tried searching on rimtuck.com but it wouldn't come up with anything, i guess they're not common sizes but tbh i don't want to fork out money for something an officer can easily say "they're too wide" to and not be able to use them. <-- wrote that to help flame proof not getting 9.5 wides +12 offset rims
    Your rear wheels would be illegal anyway since the offset increases the wheel base by more then 26mm, so I would just get 17x8.5 fronts and 17x9.5 rears

    This is a common S15 wheel recommendation: http://rimtuck.com/setup.php?id=388
    But even with 17x9.5 +30 on the rear, you need to run -3.0 degrees camber, that's on a 235/40 tyre.

    So maybe like a +40 or +45 offset on the rear would be more suitable so you don't have to dump your car with massive camber. The fronts are good at 17x8.5 +20, maybe with some 215 or 225 tyres.

    Hey guys i got a set of wheels looking to fit this weekend.

    Car: NA6 Mx-5

    Wheel specs:

    Rears: 14x8.5 -10 195/60
    Fronts 14x7 -9 185/60

    Test fitted them this morning seemed to stick out quite abit. Gettting the gaurds rolled and pumped now, also going to install coilovers later today. Will be looking into an alignment and some camber adjustment during the week.

    Question is what other things should i consider to make them fit?

    Well if the R&P doesnt fit them and running stupid camber doesnt fit them, Id say overfenders of some description?

    Hey guys,
    just looking to see if anyone knows a good offset for rims being 17x9 on a DC5R.
    atm, ive got 17x7.5 +33 Volk Ce28's atm, but i was looking to go a bit wider, ie. 9" width.
    also, not really looking to driving on spaces either.
    thanks.

    I own a Swift Sport and am tossing up between two sets of rims.
    The Work Emotion XT7's or the Gram Lights 57 Maximum.

    I think the ideal roll out is 17x7 +42 with 215/40/R17.. I'd like them to be 'hellaflush' and I won't be playing with camber or slamming it.. just straight stock setup with perfect fitment.

    According to their website, if I'm reading it correctly the 57M are only available in a +43 offset.

    According to the XT7 specs they come in a +42.

    I think I'll probably go with the XT7's.. They're cheaper (about $375/wheel, where as the 57M are like $500+/wheel) and the fitment is ideal..

    However any advice is welcome.

    Also are there any places in Sydney that stock these so I can check them out before purchase?

    Sorry if I'm a little n00bish.. because I am

    Anyone know of decent dished wheels 17" 5x100.
    For some reason 5x100 bolt pattern never come with good offset
    and having a 90 celica (no after market support) doesnt help either.

    Also wondering if 15x8 15 or 25 will need some guard work on my ek civic

    Would 16x7 +40 (something) not scrub up in the guards?
