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.

Consider...

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.

Phil

I posted this a long time ago, but still think it is needed.

some do not realize how crucial this really is. In the future i want to have 17/18 by 8.5 all around with some serious fender flares. With more power comes traction issues, and at 10+ pounds of boost say goodbye to drag racing on street tires in your teg, cuz you will not be able to control traction in 1st or 2nd. Its all about looking good, and getting power to the ground for me, search the fourms for "wide body" and check out eminece's car, you'll see what i mean he has 18x10's on the front and 18x12's on the back
