    I am currently running xxr 521's 16x8 +20 on my em1 but want a change, so i was thinking of running the new xxr 527's in a 16x8.25 + 0. Just wondering if they will fit without too much hassle? I already have pumped/rolled gaurds with sacked tein coils (current rims sit pretty flush, could be more with some camber) so not sure if they will fit with so much poke as i am only running natural camber! Also, is getting picked up for poke a big thing with cops in qld if i dont get a camber kit? cheers for any advice

    Man why doesn't Rays make TE37SL in better sizes!

    Right now I really want 18x10+20 or 18x10.5 +15 rears. These should fit with my massively rolled and pulled and bogged etc guards.

    However the front I want 18x9 or 9.5

    18x9 only comes in +45 so fuck that off

    18x9.5 comes in +22, so I will need spacers prob to clear the coilovers, which is lame as.

    Other option is to just get 17x9.5 +12 all around. But I dont wanna run stupid camber either.

    Or I can get 17x9+22 fronts and run a spacer if needed, but again, lame, and I will only run bolt on spacers, never slip ons.

    Thoughts?

    question for the fitment guru's

    car; r34gtt stock suspension
    although the front looks lowered/ cut springs maybe

    looking at new 18'' Rota Torque offset +30 which they say wont need a gaurd roll

    if i go +20 i have to roll the gaurds they say

    i dont want to roll my gaurds as i prefer a standard look

    if i put spacers on the +30 rims will it give it a nicer look etc?

    also why do all these rim shops want you to roll your gaurds ?

    i want a practical pair of rims, look good and perform well!

    please be gentle i know little of the fitment life

    and this is my first post here

    also im aware some people like rota some dont
    they fit my budget currently unless i find a mint set of ,work,rays, etc cheap 2nd hand (dreaming)

    cheers Luke

    hey everyone does anyone know a place in melbourne that can do wheels fitment and coilover adjustments?. My mechanic at Japwarehouse did an awsome job with fitment and slamming my s13 ahah, however i copped a minor defect and raised the coilovers and got it cleared. When i lowered it my front camber went positive and dont know how to adjust it back. My mehcanic is a hour away anyone know a place close by in south east melbourne thankyou

    I am no physicist but with the AWD vs different widths. Rolling diameter is extremely important because your talking changing ratios but I would have thought it was the rolling resistance that makes the difference as well? eg. If the rear rims/tyres are wider that means more force would be required to drive the rear drive train in turn putting more stress on the components.

    Its not that it would cause it to cause wear immediately but more so it will cause the components to wear out quicker than normal. ie. lowering your car wears the standard bushes out more quickly

    I guess this is the correct thread..
    Does anyone have any pics of 225/40R17 tyres on 17x7 rims?

    yep true, my tyre and wheel place would NOT let me run staggered on my forester for this reason...
