    The rears will fit with rolled guards, 225-235 profile tyres and about -3.0 of camber. You will have a lot of trouble with fitting the fronts though... you'll max out your camber tops so will probably need cambers too, but even then you'll only get about -4.0 camber out of the front, which I doubt will clear your guards.

    I would go with something less aggressive or it'll handle like crap and look pretty dopey

    Front wills need some camber around 3 deg, a 215/40 and a slight roll/lipping
    rears should be fine

    Staggered fitment is the best fucking thing ever on S chassis'
    Fuck whatever you think, it needs aqua tint

    why is staggerred fitment so cool btw?

    looking at some TE37SLs now, only came in limited sizes . Thinkign 17x9.5 +22 all around, or 18x10.5 +22 rear and 18x9.5 +22 or +35 front.

    ^^ saad: because your car is rear wheel drive, so having wider rear is technically beneficial as you can get more grip.

    plus the fatter the rims (and tyres) the nicer it looks.

    How would 15x6.5 rims with +35 offset fit on an em1? Like, any guard rolling necessary? Even though i doubt it, just want to make sure.

    Hey guys

    While we're on the topic, could i get some advice on wheel fitment for an s15.

    I'm looking at:
    Front - 18x9.5 +20
    Rear - 18x10 +15

    Guard work / suspension:
    . Rolled guards
    . Will flare (but prefer not to)
    . BC coilovers
    . Camber preferred to be less than -3deg
    . Will stretch tyres to suit


    According to rimtuck.com, these will fit with no modifications other than rolled guards. Somehow, I find it hard to believe...

    If these wont fit, what would be a rough offset and widths to suit aggressive fitment within my boundaries.



    Thanks in advance =)
