THANKS FOR THE 411. ??? DOES THE SHIM BRING THE WHEEL OUT & IT GOESBoxerRebellion said:Konig Imagine 15x8 et20 (BMW E30 fitment) wheels with Kuhmo 195/50 front and 205/50 rear- Gonna drop the front another inch so I wanted staggered tires, looks like alot of gap right now tho. Still getting used to how much smaller they look versus my old wheels. Can't argue with saving 14 lbs per corner however Acceleration and decceleration noticably improved, car feels 200 pounds lighter. I was running somewhat oversized tires before so that also makes this setup seem faster because of gearing...
I'm running OTG 10mm shims in the back and when I first threw the wheels on I also had 5mm spacers back there too; major rubbing from the right rear on my first turn. Without 5mm's still some rubbing over dips etc, so I see some fender rolling in my future.
I'm sure there wouldn't be a problem, but I can't stand it when the rears aren't even with the fronts, haha. Gonna get the rolling done early next week...Mad_Sciontist said:Niiiiice! would there be any problem with that offset and no shims on rear?
Depends on the wheels but with typical 40 offset FWD rims you should do the 10mms in the back, then add spacers as required. My last wheels were 45 offset and I ran 10mm + 5mm's rear and still could have gone further without rolling...short bus said:OK I WANT TO BRING MY WHEEL & TIRE EVEN WITH FENDER ..
SO I NEED A SHIM OR A SPACER ??
Yeh the ride is better with 15's, and the weight reduction makes a huge difference...TCMSuzie said:They look good, welcome to the 15" wheel club. Bet the ride improved! I like them black. The red wheel look has been done to death don't you think? How about PINK!! Did you change your taillights? I thought you had the helix.
I'm going to keep these tails for a while, cuz the ones I want are from Japan, and then I would need to modify them to make them what I want.TCMSuzie said:A red lip would be different. I have seen those Rota's with the red lip on a box and it looked cool. Well, let me know if you want to sell those tails. I like the ones you have now or the TYC's and I could make a trip to Daytona from Longwood. Are you going to the event at Orlando scion next month?
