    Hi all, Ricky from Mandurah calling. I don't drive a AE86 or even a toyota instead i own a 78 Datsun Skyline Coupe. I have to confess I joined this site as you guys have got the goods where wheels are concerned and that's what I'm chasing. I have been in touch with Infinite Auto, but at present wheels from Japan are way too exy. I'm looking for some 15 or 16 x 8.5 with some neg offset. Would consider any design. Now can anyone tell me how they get on having wider rims than stock. I spoke to the Dept of Planning and Infrastructure about this issue and was told I can't go more than 30% of the original sized rim. I don't know about your AE's but mine came out with 5 inch rims which means I'm not supposed to go over 6.5 inches roughly. I'm about to put my imported fleared gaurds on which would allow me to fit 9 inch if I wanted ,providing I had the right offset. How does everyone get on running wider than legal rims, any hassles from you know who? Ricky

    I doubt anyone would have issues with wide rims as I don't think it's a high priority for cops. Have you had a look at the Sportmax rims? They're not from Japan IIRC, rather USA.. also they're only 8s... but they're only $800 for a set.

    hiyas man. read your car write up on silviawa. fricken awesome to have something that age and in its current condition plus mods.

    tbh I kinda thumb my nose at dpi. i mean if you dont drive like you deserve to be caught then you wont... shouldnt... well chances are really low anyways. I spent some coin on some rims before the aussie dollar crash so managed to organise some 15x7 0 offset volks from factory. usual haunts to try and get them. kyp, jpc, c-red, ray ferrari just to name some others you havent tried.

    Thanks for the replies, and I think I'll do the same. Go for the bigger rims and play it safe on the roads, but tear the track apart. Thanks for the websites, i'll have allok. Saw the sportsmax at Infinite, not my cuppa. Meshies, ssr xr-4 longchamp are my prefered. Cheers Ricky

    What does Ray Ferrari deal in? My Dad has mentioned him a few times over the years but I don't really get what he does...

    Alternative road wheels are permitted under the following conditions :

    1. Rim width must not exceed the maximum rim width specified by the manufacturer by more than 25mm (1") (for passenger vehicles manufactured after 1st January 1973, the manufacturers rim width shall be taken as that specified on the tyre placard).

    In any event, rim width shall not exceed 177.8 mm (7") unless specified by the manufacturer as standard equipment for the vehicle in question. No increase in rim width is permitted for vehicles fitted with original equipment rims in excess of 177.8 mm (7") width.
    Taken from http://www.dpi.wa.gov.au/licensing/1884.asp

    Food for thought there, not that I suppose you care if it's legal or not.
