nvm.....

I'm hoping to test fit son, and try a locals 15x9 tirerack wheels.... Trying to figure out a spacer i can use with both.
I think they are about dead nuts on, maybe a few MM off, but close. I did the same calculations last fall when trying to decide what wheels to run. Now I'm only going to be running flared in the back end. No sense in running them up front when they aren't needed.

The flares completely covered my autokonexion flares... with an inch or so to spare if I remember right. The 15x8 +0s filled out the autokonexions just fine..... they won't fill these. I held up a rear flare with back tire on last night... looked like inches of submarine.

Wow! I thought the RL/Autokonexions were huge.....

For clarification, I was talking about the outer measurements of the 15x8 XXR's and the 15x9 6ul's. Both are about the same.

My car should be on ground and about in a week or so hopefully. It'll be unspaced 15x8 +0s under the Tuckin99/Rharris copies.

So there will be pictures soon.

Just to reconfirm (if its still needed) that 15x8 +0s will NOT be flush at all.

I was planning on 15x10 Spinwerks for my '99...before I decided to part it out. They aren't quite as light as you stated above (15.5 lbs according to the RPW website here) but still reasonable given the cost and ability to specify custom offset.

Does anybody have pics of these flares with 17s and 24.5-25" tall tires? There's so much room under these things that I think you could get away with a 17" wheel and not look like a clown shoe. That would sure open up tire selection...

Try 16's. 17's on these look like 22's on a normal car.

I saw the 15x10 -40 offset Longchamps on PAGE 2 and I was wondering where you got those pics, or if you have some more info on where to buy those babies?

I'm on the lookout for some 14/15" wheels, as wide as I can find, with as much as an extreme offset possible..

Thanks in advance if someone has that info!

Sure - the 15x10 6ULs are 15x10 +25, so at -12 offset yours will just stick out waaaaay past the stock fender lip. You'll be doing some serious fender modification to make that work. Why not just order the 6ULs?

Well I like the look of a deep dish wheel and I like diamond racing look and I'm try to go for the same look as the white miata on speedhunters who has 15x10 with -20 offset all around so I was just going to make sure that -12 wasn't going to be too much I mean I like the 0 offset they make but I wanted to get a little more of a deep dish look. I'm still kinda new to this but am I doing the right thing with what I'm going for?

So, anyway, back on topic, does anybody have any pics of these flares with 17s? Obviously, NAs look like clown shoes with 17s. The question is, 1.) is there enough room under these flares for a 24.5-25" tall tire at a reasonable ride height, without mini tubs and 2.) is there enough room under the wheel arch to run 17s without putting spinners on them.


I'm pretty sure of the latter, and pretty iffy on the former.
