15x10 with 245s - no rubbing (pics included)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

On my 280zx I have 15x10 4.5 BS with 245 Maxxis VR-1 tires. I have about a pen clearance between strut and wheel on the fronts.

 

No rubbing so far, sure it sticks out like crazy. These are the wheels I got, https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Bassett-50ST4B-15X10-D-Hole-Lite-4-on-4-5-4-Inch-BS-Black-Beaded-Wheel,72130.html

Looks cool!  I'm currently looking to do a very similar rim setup (deep dish steel rims with wide tires) on my 280zx.  I'm also thinking about 10 inch rims on the rear but I don't have the balls to go outside the fender lol.  Do you think a ten inch rim with 5.5 inch backspacing would fit under the fender/not rub inside?  Just thinking for the rears, I'll go smaller on the front as I'd like to be able to still turn the wheel lol!

 

Thanks!

There is about four fingers between the strut and the wheel in the rear, about one finger in the front.

 

I don't get any rubbing but my car is lowered and the fenders are all banged up from "incidents" on the race track. Maybe they will rub in on a stock car, don't know.
