And a quick eBay search shows that you can have any decent 15x8 wheel you like - as long as it's +25 or less
Please, everyone makes a BBS copy that look like that

Really depends how much camber you've got. A +35 on a Hardtop is around idea for an 8" rim i reckon.

What about these? How much would they be landed if they went for, say 20,000JPY?



Found 'em while browsing on my lunch break.

The auction says they're unknown but I've figured out that they're Work Nezart Mesh as per here and here. 15x7 +35 PCD100.

These are +25 but you get the picture:

Yeah, plenty of BAs have had the same specs. MS-01Rs are the same, and Proj.R has had a few sets on his car.

About $580 @ 15k, $665 @ 20k landed

Hi there

I have just picked up a BJ 323 as a daily and it desperately needs some low and wide

Im thinking king low springs with 15x8 +20 wheels and 195/50/15 tyres all round

Ive got my own guard roller but I dont want to have to flare the guards, just lip them and maybe add a little bit more camber

Doable?

I would think an 8 +40 would rub on the struts?

Okay

With the 01-03 SP20, I know a few have put CX7 wheels with 215/35-18.
I know the CX7 specs are: 7" wide with 50 offset.
With lowered springs (not coilovers) do they have problems, noise, knocks etc.... ?

Now the 2010ish Mazda6 wheels are also 18" and look abit similar to the CX7 (maybe better looking in my eyes) but are 7.5" wide and 60 offset would I have problems ? And with lowered springs not coilovers.

Because with the offset calculator the:
CX7 are 13mm more towards the strut/shocks and 13mm out towards the guards.

And

Mazda6 are 29mm more towards the strut/shocks and 9mm out towards the guards.

Just want to know if people have having problems with those wheels, I seen a lot with the CX7 but none with the Mazda6

Compare

CX7:


Mazda6

^^^^^

Also with above message I wanna run 215/40-18 not 215/35-18 which I don't think it will matter to much.

Well I just found out the CX7 wheels are 7.5" width.
Funny because I read a few times that they were 7".

But brought a set of CX7 and added new 215/40-18 tyres.
