looking to see if someone knows off he top of their head the max offset/ wheel width / tire width you can run on an s13 without pulling or rolling fenders i want something that fills out the sunken look with a little bit of a lip and that is got some nice wider tire. what can you fit in the front and rear i might fit ill probably run 17's or 18's not sure.

17x9+40 you could run a 265/275 in the rear without making to much fender enhancements. a 17x9+35 with a 255 wouldn't be a bad idea either.

this is true but i dont frequent those sites searching sucks posters suck lots of bs and i figured why not get all the info right away instead of looking thru peoples bs. and have all our bs on one site.

I don't frequent those sites either, but just like life, you have to wade through the BS to find something worthwhile. My comment wasn't meant to be dickish.

I believe Flicks link comes from zilvia, which he got from a simple search...

Those are Chaser Aero replica chuki Skirts.

+25 would push those wheels out 10mm OUT. so yes those would fit.

i know it wasnt being dickish im not being one either. just saying i have tons of free time at work.. i sit at a computer so i do my searches.. i wanted a simple awnser from someone who knew for sure. ive seen that thread theres just too much sometimes to make sense of. you have to take a crapshoot to figure what is exactly true and then i wanna see pics of this as flick did. he awnsered and showed me in a pic.. something i know i would have got here if i asked. and it worked out perfect. now i know and see.. now just to get my hands on some te37s and or some xd9's

im gonna find me some of those lol

and the 10 mm out wouldnt hit fenders or anything? i want it as close to flush as possible even if i drop it on coils. and if i got 8.5's with the 35 offset id still be good? i want it wide looking from the rear and not all lobo looking aha.

is his car lowered and if so on what?

I saw this on another site. does this sound right?

Quote :
I have run a 17x7.5 +35 with a 215/45/17 in the front with Megan racing coilovers and it just BARELY cleared. I'm now running a 17x7.5 +32 and its a better clearance for sure, same size tires.

In the rear I'm running a 17x9 +20 with a 235/40/17 on stock body (no rolling, no pulling) and its pretty close, but no rubbing. I'm pretty low on the Megans, no visible fender gap, but I'm also cambered in a bit (however much it cambered when I installed the coilovers)

His car is on Megan street coilvers, You should still be fine depending on how big of a tire and ride height. Why do you not want to roll the fenders at all?

Makes sense, if you take it to a reliable and experienced fender place just rolling the fenders won't be an issue.

so what would you reccomemend as an "experienced" fender place and what am i looking at cost wise?

and one more question if i roll the fronts do i lose out on the plastic wheel wells i assume? how do you circumvent this. i like the protection of them...

As someone else said Vinny does a good job. But i've seen some less then great roll jobs from him. I would look up Sergeys house of Wheels out of North Chicago he does a GREAT job, Yes in theory you will loose the inner fenders, but with some time and looking at them you could figure out a way to mount them.

Buy an extra set and cut and rivet them together making an EXTRA wide fender liner. Although if you are lowering your car you may run into issues rubbing them with your tires over bumps.
