    gday.
    wanting to run some 225s,
    would a 15x8 0 offset fit 225s in, stock or lightly rolled guards ?

    what offset and width could i run in the rear to run big tyres ?

    cheers.

    15x8 0 is not quite right for either end of an ae86.

    I bought some wheels that had 215s on them, they were 15x7 staggered fins, I think zero front and plus 13 rear. I have a set of 8s but they are -6/-8 offset southernways and the fronts fit nicely with a good flush look on a stock front flare and xt130 lca but the rears were 20mm out of the arches each side. I have mx13 diff so maybe would be 16mm wider than the arches per side on a stock diff.

    15 x 8 +/- 0 with a 205/50 will fit with some rolling. a 225/50 will require some more serious work.
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?

    ok thanx guys.

    LRS, yeh for sure wont fit 8" 0's in if those 7"+13's sit like that on the rear.

    looks like im going to have to do some measuring and make sure what i can fit. will be staggered.
    i have a 215 in the front already. but on a 7" rim.
    im sure ill be able to fit some 225s in the rear with the right offset on 8".

    cheers.

    15x8 plus 25 and you should be far enough inside.
