this is what I wanted to know thanks.


so an 8" +36 will be flush (or 101.6mm - 36mm = 65.6mm) therefore on a 7" id need a 20mm spacer on my +45 7" to sit flush?

i'd go a 25mm spacer and dial in about 2d15' camber on the front and 1d15' on the rear. (roughly)

personally i'd get the correct offset rims.

I have 8" +38 and that's fine. Close, but fine.

Could easily go a +25 at the front due to tucking the top with camber.

max legal size = 18x7.5 +33 correct?

which will fit and be 5mm off flush = perfect!

edit: read below for more correct info

there is no max legel size for wheels in qld, it all has to do with the tyre. +15mm rolling diameter and +33% width. fit whatever wheel you wanna fit to that, as long as the top of the wheel+tyre is inside the guards/arches from above view.

15x8 +36 rims fitted with 225/45R15 tyres is legal with 2-3mm play space using 1d30' camber

could go a +25 rim, will need to add 1d45' camber to keep the top of the package inside the panelwork.

so any offset? surely not. I thought there was a 25mm limit on track increase?

yeah sorry, you do have the requirement of the track being +25mm max. so yes legally you can only go as low as a +33mm offset wheel.

19x10 is legal, as long i can find a tyre that fits the above requirements, (which i doubt).

Do not exist. 15x6.5, 16x7 or 17x7 is it.

You should have bought those 16x8 +35 MS-0Fs i had.

i'm getting some 15x8 +36 soonish, they will fit, (inside 0mm diff, outside 12mm extra) and the outer lip will be flush with the guards. rear lip will need to be rolled
I have 17x7 with a 215 40 tire on my car with a 35 offset and I have about 3mm of room between coilovers and tire.. That's with camber bolts..

Plenty of rims out there in 16x8 +25->+35...just not MS.

(BTW i was wrong - those 16x8 MS-01Fs were +40).

Correct. I should have grabbed that set off Dan. So I wait until another set comes up I guess! I'll pump the guards anyway before I paint the car so there's no real rush but I was just curious as to what would fit.

correct. i had a browse on IM as you can use it virtually as you would ebay in english which is nice. a few options in the ideal rim specs. nothing took my fancy. is there a site with rims from some of the larger manufacturers with a "find me a rim in these specs or close to" search? i looked at rays but it was fairly light on details/options listed

Hope do you guys think a set of 15x8 +25 would fit?

More specifically these:



Guessing a guard flare would be required...

8" +35 is the most you can go without major work. Stock is something like 6.5" +45...

If you care, the above is the max legal width too. I did do the calculations only a few weeks ago.

Damn - those Stance Mindset rims only come in the offset I listed

And a quick eBay search shows that you can have any decent 15x8 wheel you like - as long as it's +25 or less
