    Will 8.5" fit the front? :confused:

    Hey Guys,

    I bought some wheels that I like and the spec is follow

    FRONT

    17 x 8.5"

    Offset is +31mm

    REAR

    17 x 9"

    Offset is +38mm

    Can you tell me if these will fit my S15, the suspension I think is still standard. I am worrying about the clearence issues.

    What size tyre should I run on these?

    Thanks

    i think the front will stick out a bit if you gonna use 235 tyre and the rear looks ok.
    you bought the wheels. just use your emergency tool to try them out if you don't have other tools

    Here's the recommendations.

    From experience, actually try the wheels first if you can.

    I've got 18x8.5 front and back with a 32 offset and they are probably a touch too big. The standard 45 offset would have been ideal for them. 235x40x18 front, 255x35x18 rear.

    Thanks, I will try them on first but I think they will be ok too. Just the case that what tyre size should I put on the front. Becasue the rear wheels come with 255 already, but the front doesnt come with any tyre so I might jsu put it on and try it first.

    Probably goin for 225

    Rays TE37, I also want to respray them but not sure what colour yet.

    everyone is saying white to me, but I quite like the new 06 TE37 model with that Matt Black look.

    Any advice?
