Wheel suggestions w/AZC Wilwoods?
Posted 20 May 2011 - 10:49 AM
The car has molded flared guards with after market ground control coil overs with Eibach springs. From what I've seen the flares are about the same size as the ZG ones.
For price I'm not really wanting to pay 6-700 per rim so am checking out what Rota has to offer and am considering these - Rota RB's but I'm slightly worried 17" is too big and 16" may be too small.
Anyway any help is appreciated, cheers.

I have the AZC 6pots, 12.2" rotors up front with 15x7 +/-15 offset Koing Rewinds and they just barely fit. Had to move the wheel weights across the width of the rim but it leaves a few mm gap.
I believe BenZed said that Watanabe R-Type's (Unsure of the specifications) Do not fit unless a wheel spacer is attached.

I had a similar problem when I went with 300mm rotors from Hopper Stoppers. 16" wheels were recommended and cleared fine, but the tyre choice (width wise) is not as great as the 17" tyres. If I could do it again I would go with the 17" wheels.

I have the Performance 8 spoke Super light GTR copies, -4 or +4 offset not sure, 16 x 8's had no problem fitting the 6 pot willwoods , i tried a guys 15 x 8 GTR's and there was a bee's dick clearance between the rim and the calliper's, any stone getting wedged would damage the rims so i went with the 16's, not sure what the struts are. Give me call if you want to come up and check them out.

James i got a few sets of the Wata Type R knockoffs in 19x9 at neg 13, go squeezy and a bit of guard massage, will just fit, or go a fat 225 or a 245 and run flares.
Easy enough to bring them back to a neg 8 mm.

Also 15x8 Minilite (genuine) will work with a 12.2" and Wilwood 4 pot superlite caliper - just again no weights on the inside of the rim
