    the front will be ok but the rear may be tricky, especially if you're going to run 245 or bigger. The guards will also need to be rolled unless you run massive neg camber which is pointless. I run 9's at the rear with a 38 offset, but needed to roll the gaurds in order to run 1.9 neg camber.
    What do you call a Rx7 with reliability, decent build quality and a better exhaust note? - a specR S15!

    There is a slightly cheaper copy of the Nismo LM GT4 wheels available


    Still not the cheapest wheels at ?380.00 a pair.

    At the minute my favourite wheels are the gramlight 57s-pro



    More saving to be done before I can afford!!

    A 39 offset a the rear will be fine as the rear brakes are tiny and nearly any design will suit. Bear in mind the S15 brakes (spec R) stick out a bit so some wheel spoke designs won't fit despite having the correct offset. I tried a set of deep dish 18's with a 35 offset and they weren't even close to clearing the brakes. If you do run 39J on the rear, as I mentioned before, you'll still need to roll the guards and get rear camber adjustable arms if you intent to lower your ride and run 235's or bigger. Without the adj rear arms I could run 245's without rolling the guards, but negative 3 degrees camber with 245's doesn't have a much bigger tyre contact patch than the standard 205's with correct camber.
