Ok show us your pics.. trying to decide whether to stay with a 14" wheel or buy a set of 15". I already own a set of 14" watanabe wheels however haven't fitted these to the car yet, hence the question, as this is the the cheaper option..

 

Be great to see some pics of the various 'jdm' 14" wheels you are running, and also info on width/offets, tyre size, suspension setup etc.

 

I am concerned is that a 14" setup will look too small under the guards without substantial lowering.

 

Shoot! :)

What tyre size and suspension are you running?

The tyre size is 205 50 x 14 and I think when that shot was taken I was running standard struts with Tokico HTS shocks with slightly trimmed down Tokico 280Z springs 185/200lbs.

Awesome, thanks for info, I'm thinking retaining original struts and just using a 30mm lower king spring set. Your pic is pretty much spot on to the look I am hoping for.

 

Any other pics from others?

Hi

Stanard size tyres 185/70/14, with King lowered springs

That's what I have got at the moment however without the king springs at this stage... the drop in ride height looks nice
