    Ok, looking to see if you guys came across with any decent rim selections, and no I will not convert to 5lug.

    Looking for 17" rims,

    My lug pattern is 4x114.3, and looking for an offset in the +35range since it's common.

    So far just pretty much came up with the 17" 5zigen FN01R-C's in Front 17x7.5 +40, and 17x8 +35 in the rear. These rims run around 200 a pop so that isn't such a bad idea.

    B, I am sure you have some decenet choices??

    thanks guys...

    actually, no.

    there's dick for rims in our size man.

    its either:

    -go 5 lug
    - get cheap ass wheels with FWD offsets
    - spend an ass load of cash on volks

    whats your opinion with the 5zigens?? I mean they aren't that bad, and I would prefer them to be wider in the rear, but honestly for the cash involved it's not sooo bad :)

    also, some cat from freshalloy had custom made kosei K1's in the 4x114.3 pattern with a pretty damn good offset, and they ran him 250 a pop I think, he waited 10 weeks for them also.

    those gram lights would be pimp, but they are a little out of my price range. :)

    Heres a quote from another freshalloy member with these rims
    "S13 Setup:
    17x7.5 +25 Front 215/45 tire
    17x8 +15 Rear 225/45 tire
    H&R Hubcentric spacers w/ ext. studs 15mm F / 20mm R
    approx. 1.5 deg. neg. camber in front
    approx 2.5 deg. neg. camber in rear
    AGX's+Sportlines, slightly rolled fenders

    No rubbing; *uber* flush. "


    From 5Zigens site
    "Offsets are as recomended by 5zigen for the s13:

    SILVIA/180SX S13 17 x 7.5 +40 215/45-17 17 x 8.0 +35 235/40-17 "

    somewhat related to your other reply B:

    Honest Opinion

    is it going to be that bad with a +40 in front, and +35 in rear, if so like the quote above would you use spacers...

    I know it's ghetto, but thinking about it now??

    hmm........also on pdmracing they have a 5 lug conversion available


    Options include either using the H&R spacers, true 5 lug conversion from SE, or using the 5lug hubs which cost 300 for front and 220 for rear from pdm while retaining original equiptment.

    s13 se's aren't 5 lug either.
    +40 sucks.

    might as well get a 17x7 tenzo wheel for a honda with the 8lug multi pattern. it will look the same way.

    7.5 / 8 setup is wack as fuck.

    you can easily fit a 10" wheel and a 245 no problem. plenty of guys run 255 in the rear with some cutting/rolling. 8 up front.

    i want 17x8.5/ 18x9.5
    :)

    but my car is too slow, and too ghetto to pull it off.... and thats a lot of money
