Hey Guys,

Just thought i would post up the specs i found for a BG. As i couldnt really see it plainly written out here. So just for reference:

BG Astina SP 1989-1994
Standard/OEM wheel:
14x5.5JJ OFFSET +45
with a 4x100 stud pattern
Standard tyres are listed as either: 175/65/14 or 185/60/14

Although i have got these specs off the SP astina i believe that they should be the same for the base model astina, shades and the 323 sedan.

Hope that helps someone in the future.

Cheers
Jeremy

Question

My new 2ndhand wheels I got today have same everything. Stud pattern, width etc.
The holes for studs are a tad smaller than the others so my tyre iron didn't fit so used socket wrench.
Anyways.. Driving along, steering wheel shaky as hell and getting a thuds every half second.

Any ideas on a cause???

I've found the problem. Old spacers from the alloys were still there. Fit like a glove now. Obviously I'm a duffer

Thinking of going 15x7
+30 rear
+35 front

astina v6 (stock is around 45ish' yes?)

Anyone used similar specs? Rims would be made to order, so i can go anywhere between +20 to +40

Mazdaspeed fitment was 16x7 +35 all round to give you an idea.

16x8 +45 isn't going to happen - you'll be rubbing struts. It'd have to be at least a +38 with an 8" rim, and even then you'll only have a few mm clearance.

What about with coilovers? Would that help with strut clearence? I could always run a small spacer...

BBS RS are not that uncommon, you know. Easier to just find a better fitment.

Coilovers would help, but not by much. And then if you're running them low, the collars will the close to the rim anyway which negates the extra few mm clearance.

Only the clearance though, the rest still works.

Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster!

I just wanted to double check in case im being too simple about this.

I have a 97 Astina 1.8 with some ugly ass aftermarket rims on them at the moment from previous owner.

From what I have read I would be able to get ANY 17 inch x 7 inch, 4 stud 100mm rim and it would fit nicely on my car? Or is it all about the amount of offset on the rims so they will actually fit?

Then need to make sure i get tires with a low enough profile to ensure the total wheel size is the same and im all good to go?

37-45 offset should fit fine with 205/40/17 tyres. 215's would work too...
