OK guys with the recent interest in wheel sizes and several threads and pm's to me asking what will fit with blah blah offset and width, i thought we had better start a reference thread.

I will update the first post with the info you post to form a list,

Please post only a pic of your car that shows the wheel fit and list the wheel size, tyre size, wheel make and model, tyre make and size and if it does or doesnt fit with a simple comment ,it will be heavily moderated to keep it simple and imformative.

for example your post should be-


17x7.5 et45 Rota SDX with 215x45 Toyo R888 - fit fine no rubbing at all :D
*****************

OR.


18x10.5 et10 Volk racing ce28 with 325x40 Toyo T1r- wont fit under rear stick out and rub everywhere. :(

*****************

OK.
The list, I'll start-

17x8 et38 Enkei evo8 with 210x620 dunlop slick- fit ok but require race geo or negative camber
17x8 et38 Enkei evo8 with 215x45 Toyo R888- wont fit on rear without serious negative camber
17x7.5 et45 Rota SDX with 215x45 Toyo R888- close on rear but fit with fast road setup
18x7.5 et45 Kei Racing RSS with 215x40 Toyo T1R- fit fine all round
17x7 ET45 CTR Alloys with RE070 225/45/17 tyres. Clear Brembos and fit no problem without rubs on car lowered 10mm.

Si - this thread is most helpful =D>

It appears that wheels for the DC5 are quite limited, so far I've only found the following.......Volk, Mugen, Rota, Advan, Inovit, Buddyclub, Tenzo's, anymore?

I'm looking for Rota's but they don't do the finish I'm after and the rest are serious ££ so this thread has proved helpful.

Cheers

Sorry no pics yet,

OEM wheels, Toyo R888 215/45
Mugen Sport suspension, camber adjusted to -1° rear

J's Racing 10mm Spacer at the rear. Works fine, no rubbing (tested).

Also tried 15mm at the rear and it seems to work (and looks very good!) but haven't tested it without the suspension tower yet.

15mm at the front is a no-no. 10mm might work.

When you guys say "no rubbing", you do test the setup by lowering the wheel inside the arch without the coil & spring installed, right (rear only obviously)?
