Not lookin too bad....with the flares I could run a wider tire than what this guy is and the ricer'esk look would'nt be so bad because all that meat would be under the flare and not sticking out...

IIRC no! it will on a 1.6 NA, but since the brakes on 94 and up are bigger, you cant clear them!
you technically can if you put 1.6 brakes on your car!

somebody correct me if im wrong, im goin based off what i was told!

I'm wondering with the obviously heavier wheels how much that effect is amplified by the low offset. I'm thinking leverage. It's not only heavier but also further from the axis point of the suspension. Going to an 18- 20lb wheel + moving it out another 3 inches may be like running a 25 lb wheel at a normal offset. I'm thinking weight becomes pretty important the further out you go.

Look for some used Kodiaks, keizer's or the like to keep weight down!

that would be ideal....but somehow I dont think that's going to happen. Although, in my searching, I did find that he did a limited run of 15x10's a while back..

damn! they should do it again, or at least make it a order to make option!
so that they dont make a bunch and get stuck with them!

Business is in volume...so if they were to offer it like that, as a special option, we'd pay for it! Although it would probably be worth paying the premium....

even with the extra cost they would still be comparable to other wheels that are out there! i like the idea of have something so few would have!

Guess it could'nt hurt to ask...I to like being different and having things only a few have, ****, thats partly why I like the N2 flares so much.
**EDIT** Doesn't look promising (http://clubroadster.net/vb_forum/sho...ighlight=15x10)

On another note, these panasports would have been nice...the offset wasn't ideal (+25) but I think that could have been fixed sine its a 3 pc wheel...

what has to be done to fix the turning radius issue with the larger and wider wheels on NA's!

right now im running 16x8 0 offsets, i already got the upper fender worked out! (i yelled at it ha) but turning causes some issues!

i know when getting the flares, your pretty much hacking up the fender and bolting/riveting them on! but will that solve turning radius scrub?

These are ridiculous, but a nice looking wheel if the offset wasn't so extreme:

SSR LongChamps XR4
Size : 15x10
Offset : -40

13's fit on my '95 1.8 they wouldn't on a whatever year with sport brakes though. i did have to shave the excess casting off of my calipers though. about 15sec. per caliper with an angle grinder.

Just came across these...not to bad. Similar to the diamond racing:

Aero Race Wheels

13x10
Welcome To Aero Race Wheels ~ Estherville, Iowa

These are their "Black Chrome" Wheels


They do make 15x10's but they are again, quite heavy in comparison


Did I mention they were dirt cheap...if you click on the close out section, you can pick up some 13x10s for $30ea. I'm tempted to buy one just to see if it'll clear my calipers

If you're ok with the styling of the Diamonds, Spinwerks look similar but much lighter but about twice the price, which still is only ~$1k. Type 82s are about 15lbs in 15x10. 16x10 are 16lbs.
