Looking at getting an enlargement...for the car!
Have looked through previous threads but can't find the answer to wether a set of four 16 x 10 (0 offset) will fit (and look right) on my 240z with flares and coilovers (running standard brakes). What are 10'' like on the front of a road car? If they did fit, what would be a good size of tyre for them?

You also need to ask the question of why - 10" is bigger than useful on a zed. 8" is about all the tyre such a light weight car can actually use.
As for looks - also subjective. personally I think it'll look terrible, but then you're not me either.
Quick google found this: "With coil-overs a 10" wide wheel could use a -13mm offset."
Another thing to consider will be clearance to the frame rail - go to wide and you'll run out of turning circle pretty quick

0 offset will not work with a 10 inch wheel. You would need -15 or lower so it doesnt hit the strut or frame. Im running 17x9.5 -19 up front and that JUST clears the frame. Then there is the valance/airdam to worry about aswell as the strut rod.
Wait for Saxon to chime in i think he is running 16x10 but very low offset.
In the meantime have a look this website its a offset calculator..

Saw a cheap set of wheels on the local gumtree and got all giddy.
Have managed to have a word with myself and have put the credit card away.
Thanks for the nudge, fellas...
