Hello, I am trying to decide on a wheel and tire setup for my 280z now that I have decided to do flares (2" front 3" rear zg style). I was originally going for either work equip 03 or meister cr01 in 15x10 or 16x10 respectively (talked myself into spending more then I should this time around). The issue I am running into is tire selection for those widths. I would prefer to avoid stretching tires if possible. The widest tire that I can find (that are not slicks or drag radials and with an acceptable aspect ratio) are the toyo r888r 255/50r16. What is your experience with how 255 are mounted when on 10" wide wheels? Purple z attached is the type of fit I would like. From what I read he is running 15x10 all around. Fronts look like r888r but I don't know the rear tires? Blue is how my car sits now on 16x8 225/50. Essentially I would like to widen what I have, maintaining a little meat on the sidewalls. Apart from the technical aspects I am also open to any and all opinions, from different wheels to wheel sizes, tires, colors etc. The more Ideas spit balled the better. purplez.webp
$500 located in Corona, CA If you're looking for the widest wheels that can tuck under stock fenders on an S30, this may be for you. They will require fender rolling, 5 lug conversion, coilovers, and spacers, but all the info is available on this site in a detailed post I created. Here are the F1R F23 wheel spec's:. 18x8.5 +38 front and 18x9.5 +20 rear. Tires are Falken Azenis FK453s with at least 80% tread remaining 245/40 front and 275/35 rear. I really don't want to ship, so looking for local pickup around Corona, CA. I also still have the 4 lug wheels that I posted about before I switched over to 5 lugs. Only issue is a dent in one of the chrome trim rings. I'm going with flares, so I have no need for these anymore.
