      Just put these wheels on finally. Going to be transporting the car soon. Most likely not under it's own power due to unforeseen problems.

      After I get home from this work trip im going to adjust the suspension a little and roll & pull the fenders a little. I'm chalking the front right and back left clearance issues up to a poorly adjusted suspension. & the tires are old ones that have been on the wheels since they were on my other car. They'll be getting replaced.

      Wheels: SSR DeColte GP-0's, +54 offset.

      I'll have to measure the adapters. But they're huge.

      Coilovers. Cheapo's put on by previous owner.

      Does anyone know how an 18x8.5 et35 would fit? How would they look? I know most people say 16s are usually the best size for corrados. I was looking at a set of 3sdm 0.06 specifically.

      Yes, they'll fit. Only a 225/35/18 tire will work. Coilovers not needed for clearance. The rear may or may not try to peel the sidewall against the fender lip on the bigger bumps. This can only be eliminated by not taking the car to loowww or shaving the inside of the fender lip between the 10 & 12:00 area.

      Need some help here.
      I've got BBS RS 010's
      15X7 and 15X8 et 36
      Trying to figure out what adapter specs I would need

      I've been thinking 18mm front and 20mm rears?

      Any insight from someone?

      Looks good. Nice change to the 16s from the 17s. I don'y know why you are spacing that rear though it is poking pretty hard. Also that is a ****ton of stretch for a 9".

      Have to run a 5mm in rear to be able to run the centercap unless I wanna bash the dust cover underneath. I have yet to try but they dont rub this way and the staggered works. I might lower the rear like 3/8ths

      old setup was Schmidt TH-lines wrapped with Falken452s & 512 -205/40r17z- :yes:
      -17x8 front Et22
      -17x9 ET 18 Rear

      So only mms in or out with that spacer....

      the 195/40 sdrives fit like the 205/40 16s in any other tire. So its not that bad at all

      finally finished tuning and now with 490 Whp and 384 tq i need to ditch the 205 and find a new wheel set up current specs fallow

      205/40/17
      brembo GT big brakes 313x28 rotors
      koni coils
      team dynamic racing wheels 17x7.5 not sure offset 15mm spacer currently to clear brakes

      i want to run toyo r888 in 245/40/17 but am on the fence if they will fit. look not as big of an issue as traction at this point

      if i find the right 16" i can still clear my brakes. might order a set of diamond racing 16x8 et 12

      any help from all you wheel whores im more of a wheel virgin


      also what dose everyone do about the fender liners?

      Nice collection!

      I'm assuming you mean any other 205/40/16 other than falken 512s.

      Would you mind posting pics (or pm'ing me) of the wheels and tires up close. I'm curious about the stretch. My wheels are 17x8.25 and 8.5. I have 215/35 Yokos but I don't like how they fit - they are super square but it's almost as if I have no tire if that makes sense.

      Not to get traction car make 490whp. Everything clears and after the fenders are pulled will look proper. Now runing 195 on a 9" wheel and tuckin half the ture makes no sense and has no fuctional reason besides it looks good.

      That rear is impossible to fit properly unless you do extensive reforming of the rear or put on some ugly fender flares. Just keep it higher for now and you can run it it just pokes a lot. For just traction I would run a 16 by 8 with a sticky 215 or 225 45 tire.

      I was contemplating 8 all around. Well see how these last this year r888 are very sticky tires might last 10000 miles on street. I'll drop to 225 next set

      I never thought 0.05's could look so bad. 9's are way too wide for a G60. It doesn't matter if you pull the fenders they will still stick out a mile. Adding a spacer makes it even worse. What was the point of going with a 9 on the rear? First time I have seen a 245 on a 8" wide wheel. Its like the opposite of stretched.

      Current set up is the initial setup (only had wheels and tires for less then a week) the back spacing still needs dialed in front and rear. it is far from complete. The 10mm and 15mm is what I had on hand. To check clearnces to order new spacers. As of now lock to lock steering clears as well as no rubbing at this time. The final product will change everyone's thoughts. It will be droped 1.5-2" after body work is completed. Have not decided if I'm going pulled vr fenders or staying g60 and just pulling originals. As far as why 9" in rear I went off of research if you look a few post back i asked for advice from the experienced wheel people in this thread and got the cold shoulder. My measurement I took told me all would fit and it dose with out issue. And once completed you will have a diffrent opinion. Stay tuned thanks for input
