So, while my supercharging project is on halt due to some issues with machining equipment, I'm planning to get some new wheels.
The stock wheels are rusting, they skinny as hell and just so damn tiny.

So from what I've read 7 inch wheels are a push but as far as my calculations go ET30 and 7j wheels would fit just a little closer (about 9.1mm) to the strut which isn't even a centimetre so im not too concerned. The tyres going on the wheels will be Toyo Proxes 195/40 r15 so im going for that tiny little stretch (or planning on it anyways)

Please if you have any experience fitting wheels that are ET30 and 7 inch wide and 15inch please tell me your experience, also i don't mind the wheel poking out I'll either roll the fender a little or get some little fender flares

Any wide wheel fitment advice will be much appreciated so share whatever you got!

awesome, i just wasn't sure to go ahead as with tires i'd be spending around £600
also i forgot to mention the car is lowered 40mm would that affect it much?

So we're basically have the same setup :lol:
in the UK its illegal if your wheels overhang the arches, because its "UNSAFE" so hence the ET30 not ET20, then again i'd love to do like ET10 and just use some nice wide fender flares 8)

I have ET 10 also very common in E.S Central America. But you need 13x7, or like me i have 13X8. 0 offset.

Thank you for the images and replies :)
i have since decided im gonna go with a different set of wheels as i like them better (the look of the anyways)
6.5j and et35 offset so it just about fits under the arches with a minimal need to roll the arches
The wheels are Japan racing JR4's.

its also quite hard to find wheels with 4x114.3 PCD in the UK, well in the rather "specific" criteria i have for what wheels i want :lol:
