I searched the articles, and found the excellent tire guide, but nothing in regards to wheel fitment/ offset.
Considering that many of us would like to plus size our wheels, and we have a variety of suspension lowering modifications I figure there has to be an issue regarding wheels offset/ wheel width/ and wheel size, and the applications allowed by the decreased wheel gap from lowering.
I have a GSR, with Eibach Sportline springs
I want to get 17" Wheels
I log into the new "Wheel fitment guide" to learn when should I worry about rubbing, or adverse effects.
What wheel center offset would allow me to get a 7" or 7.5" width wheel?
Then I can utilize the excellent tire guide to complete my selection. In this scenario I have been aided in making an intelligent choice.
Even just to have members enter what they are running to give me an idea of what is trouble free.
Ex: JoeShmoe has a 95 GSR with Sportlines and is running (insert wheel diameter, and width here) with (insert required offset here)
This would be extremely helpful.
I know that this is no-brainer for some people, but I have very few qualified resources on this subject where I live, and I am sure there are others out there just like me.
I just don't want to pay big $$$ to order a wheel/ tire package, then learn it doesn't fit.
May the best of your past be the worst of your future...
