Default 6UL fitment guide

About two months ago I was lusting after some 6UL wheels as my 14" BBS alloys are currently just holding car parts. So thought I could sell one for the other and have shiny shoes.
I went searching for guides and found a few but one was really helpful.
It listed the sizes, offsets on NA and NB and the work needed to get them to fit without damaging stuff.
For the life of me I cannot find that website again. Has anyone else found it?

A good one but not "the one": https://supermiata.com/roll-storage.aspx

We could of course create our own compendium to show the same if no one else can find the site.
Please post a side picture with car variant, wheel dimension, tyre size, fitment adjustments.

Car: 1992 NA 1.6 S Limited
Wheels: 15x8et0
Tyre: 195/45/15
Front Adjustment: Rolled and Pulled
Rear adjustment: Rolled

Or go to the actively used 6UL thread which starts at Gen2.
Unfortunately out of 60+ pages (on 22 currently) there are very few statements of "i have this, i did this" I fact most of them don't even state what they have.

Best thread for comparisons I've found yet

Stop it Vlad :P

I think your looking for the goodwin racing site. he seems to have some fairly specific fitment info. either that or just do what every one else as said before me.

On an NA, the biggest I think you can go without surgery I believe is 15x8 et36 with a sensible sized tyre. 15x9s *may* be possible if you are running skinny tyres, roll the arches etc.

As we are UK based, the tyre choice sucks for wider tyres :(

205 50 15s - lots of choice - Federal 595RSRs, R888's, road tyres from the main manufacturers
215 45 15 - Toyo T1Rs, R888s, DMack
225 45 15 - R888s, R1Rs, Dmack
225 50 15 - will probably rub - Toyo T1Rs, R888s, Kumho V70s

If you want to go wider than a 205, you either have to have crap road tyres (T1R) or go for a full on trackday special (R1R, R888 etc) that may not do well in our traditional weather (cold, rain etc) on the road... IIRC they are also pretty expensive compared to the 205s...

On the plus side, with skinny tyres and less grip, it may mean that 4th gear lasts longer than 5 minutes as it'll spin the wheels not shred the gearbox
