16x8 -0 will sit relatively flush with the body. Will look quite silly with flares and those wheels!!


well Thats what i figured, Bugger it. seems like a set of 15s for the engineer is in my future.

I think you will be fine... alot of guys run flares and have no issues!! If you get pulled over just be polite and im sure it will be fine!!

I think the cops would have enough confusing stuff to look at if you got it all engineered, then go looking at your rims as well.

If you maintain the same overall diameter it will look good - most zeds i saw in japan run 15"s just make sure you lower your car heaps - that's what makes it look right.

My brother was told there was a new Watanabe style wheel (not the RB-W) coming out soon that also accommodates for big brake setups and he was wondering if these are still coming?

Those RK-R's look the business, much closer in appearance to R type wats than the RB's.

Just noticed Rota's Shakotan, dead ringers for Hayashi's. Seems Rota is remaking all the classics.

i didnt think 9.5 wide wheels would fit under the standard guards.
how wide do you have to go before flairs are needed?

8.5" roughly for standard guards depending on the wheels and tyres you are running.
