Rims gonna Fit?
« on: Jun 28, 2011, 11:13AM »
Hey all;

I've been reading on other posts and such about wheel widths & seems to be 15x8's will fit with the right offset. The rims I'm looking at are 15x8 (+38). Are they gonna fit?

Cheers for the help  ;D

I know the offset will fit, but I'm not sure about the 8" wide tyres. I'm running 17x7s (+38) and they slightly scrub on full lock.

Ohh, I made the mistake, for an offset of 38, it has to be an 15x7 wheel. Slight scrub is fine  ;D
Thanks

I haven't looked into it in too much depth, but these rims are only going to be 7" so they shouldnt be hard to find. (I read somewhere that a fella is running 195/45's but thats a bit of stretch  :P )

Yeah no probs with 7" there. I think with 15" you need a bit of rubber under there I'd go for 205 at least.

True, thanks for the advice  :)
If thats the least what would be a pretty safe wheel size  ???
Doesnt matter if there not stretched, prefer to not buy tyres every 6 months  :P

i have some 16 7 +38 rims atm and with the 1/4 i have been making they fit
so far the right one was a breze but the left front was munted, rears arent too bad but there are some dents that requite removal before i mould them ;D
