Hi Guys,

Im sorry to be asking a question that has been asked many times before but I've trolled through the threads and found definitive answer.

I finally purchased a 240Z yesterday first thing ill be doing is replacing the wheels and tyres and giving her a good cut and polish! ……..So the setup I'm looking at doing is ROTA RB Hyper blacks 15X7s +20 (standard wheel form Rotas website) with 225/50 R15 wheels all round.

Im going for a similar look to this silver Z.





So will this work on a standard setup 240z no guards flared etc…???

Thanks

Al

I have a set of 15x7 Konig Rewinds which are pretty much the same thing, although the offset is 0.

I have standard struts and brakes - no problem with fit.

If you're looking for dish, my understanding is that 0 offset for that size wheel is about right.

There was a fella selling a new set on here a while ago..

A 7" with a +20 may get close to the spring perches.
Some longer studs and slip on spacers, as long as fixed to the hub via a counterbored hole and a machine screw, into threaded hole on hub face, may solve this.

Just get the +4 offset option, which fits without spacers or any of that bother. I've been the spacer route and it really isnt worth the effort.

from memory I thought they stop making the "0" , as mentioned above, stick to the +4s..

Yep, 7" +20 with 225's will just fit on the rear but on the front they will foul the spring perch so that you can't even spin the tyre.
I run 205/50 semi slicks all round with no problem on 7" +20 rims.
In my opinion they don't fill the guards properly and would go with +4's as suggested by others.
