Default It puts 15x8 +20 on the NB?

It takes the TR C1M 15x8 +20 and puts it on the 10AE-T?

This combo

But in this size


What do you think, will it fit w/o fender mods? Smash or pass?

Might have to roll depending on tire size and ride height.

I think it's at 12"F 12.5" rear. I was planning on running wide 205 50 15's on them, in the assumption that they would be more likely to fit in there than wider tires.

The rest of the fable is I have 15x8 6ULs with 205 50 15 KDW2's on there now. They fit with very minimal stretch on the 8" wheel, looks pretty baller actually. I figured I could put the KDW's on the C1M's, and get some proper 225 R comps for the ULs.

you probably wont rub with 205/50/15 if you roll your fenders. I have 15x8 +15 wheels, fenders rolled, but If I use 205/50/15s, I get massive rubbing on bumps.

I am lowered substantially too, so that may be a factor.

Here's my logic:

15x9 +36 fits perfectly, no rolling required.

15x9 +36 and 15x8 +23 sit basically the same distance from the fender (within 1mm)

15x9 stretches a 225, 15x8 bulges it which reduces clearance (more room for rubbage)

So, depending on ride height and tire size, you may have to roll. With 205s, I doubt you'll need to do either.

You were correct sir. I worked up the courage to search clubricer and found his pics.

Not a bad looking wheel, but the concavity and lip is exaggerated with the ricer vision lens.




Went from being "zOMG teh hotnez" to "they'e ok" in my mind. Might just wait for a 2nd set of ULs to come available.

For anyone interested, the owner of that red car is willing to trade his wheels straight up for some 15x9 ULs

one of my friends has a set on his E30 and I actually have slightly better cell pic. I wanted to test fit them on my NA, but I ran out of time. I think they would fit with 205's on a NB no problem though. I'm not sure they'll clear my big rotors without a spacer and I'm pretty sure I'll have to roll in the rear for 225's.

I have the 15x7.5 c1. I wanted the 15x8's but they weren't out. I'm going to try the 15x8's with a 195/50 tire.
