These are 16X8 0 offset all the way around with 205/40R16 I no this is a NB but you get the idea.



I am positive I can get a 15X8 0 offset on the back of an NA I just need to make the car belive I can. With a fender roller and some effort they will look nasty.
I had 15x8 0 offests, fronts were 205/50/15 rears were 225/50/50, fronts rubbed when i turned rears were just way to big lol fenders are a must roll.

sorry only pic i have

With a proper offset and rolled fenders you can get a lot of tire under this car.

I haven't gotten a whole lot done latly but I figured I would give an update. I got my TPS and Fuel preasure VSV from the junkyard today and I need to go back and get the knock sensor I forgot my adjustable to pull it out. I ordered the fuse box I need the other day so I hope to have that in the next week and if all goes well I can put her on the lift wire the starter and at least see if it starts. I will keep the updates coming as I do more work.

Ok I got another small update just got my new/used (new to me) rear lip thanks to RotoNutFD3S and it looks great and the plus is it helped me figure out what I wanted to do with my exhaust in the long run. The hood pipe is good to get started but tha will only be entertaining for a week or two then **** gets old. The great part is the rear lip is already cut for dual exhaust so I am going to run twin cannons like a 300Z just with slightly shorter mufflers maybe no mufflers at all we will see. I am waiting on my new 400# front springs to come in and I got some steel wheels for the mean time and I can finish up my rear cross member I will hopefully have some pics next week.

That is the first plan I just really like the way the twin cans look, in the real world where the hell am I going to put two mufflers under that car. I will most likely be twin pipes with nice tips.

Question for everyone if I buy one 14" 400# spring will it work the same as two 7" 400# springs. This may be a dumb question but I thought I would ask. My buddy has one laying around he got for a 4x4 project and never got done. It a 14" 400# sping 2.5". Let me know what you guys think.

Ok so after all that talk over 0 offset wheels and rolling and pulling fenders, I went a different way with the wheels. I found a super clean set of K1's on CL for $500 with tires and lug nuts. These are 16X7.5 ET 43 and they are going to look sick. I had a set of 15" steelies on the car to move it around the garage but these will make it look good and they are good wheels. Here are a couple pics of the car and how low it is with it on the ground. I will post some other pics with the new wheels later tonight. I mean you can't have a race car with out racing wheels can you?

cut the bottoms of your front mud flaps off so they dont get ripped off when you drive over speed bumps!

I got some more work done last night. The new wheels are mounted on the car I just need a lower profile for the front they are 215/50R16 I think I am going to go with a 215/35R16 or 205/35R16 or anything I can find close to that. I also got the shims in the rear to bring the pinion angle down and started the rear chassis brace/ rear crossmember brace/ rear diff brace. I need another piece of 2x2 tubing to finish it I hope to have it done monday when I get some more time. Here are some pics of the wheels and rear crossmembers. The bar I am holding up in one of the pics is just to show where the other tube will go to tie everything together.
