PostSubject: Rims for a widebody s14?    Sat Sep 03, 2011 1:58 pm

Ok, so ive been searching and searching on zilvia, trying to find what good offset/rim size to get for my car. I posted a thread and everyone was nothing but assholes in their replies. Anyways, Im going to have 20mm overfenders in the front, and i already have 30mm rears. Anybody have any input to a good way to figure out what size rims to get to get a flush look? I want 18's, and preferably something wider than 8.5's. Let me know your thoughts.. Thanks.

I found a calculator that you can probably figure out. If you got any questions, hit me up.

I would say atleast 18s. 17s i think will look small on a widebody s14.

check out [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] type in your car and see what other people have.

to look cool i think you are going to need ATLEAST a 10" wide all the way up to a 12-12.5"

If you can't figure out what rims are flush from what they just posted
go on zilvia or othr websites and check out other ppls cars
they usually post size of wheels and tires and spacers or not...
Idk ppl still use cardomain.com or not
but even scope a few cars from there

Just mt fyi

But i do agree with nick, ATLEAST 10" wide

rimtuck doesnt work on any of the computers in my house, it says the site blocked my ip address?

i want to go 10 or 10.5 in the rear, and probably 9 or 10 in the front. and 18's for sure.

im running 9.5 on stock body work. you can easily fit a 10 or more. you could prob do something in the 10.5 range with 15 offset or so. im no expert though.

With a 10.5 and 15 offset, he'd need a 50mm overfender to flush it. otherwise its too much poke. Unless you wanna ride like this:

Anyway, what style are you going for? Hellaflush? How do you want your car to ride/handle? You want it slammed or functional?

I've never worked on an s14 before, so I have NO idea how much room it has to clear the suspension on the inside.

you need to realise people make 10" wide rims tuck on s14s. the tire/rim you can fit on a s14 compaired to a s13 is HUGE. people run 295-305s on stock sheetmetal on s14s. some go up to 325.

best bet go to Zilvia.net > Chat > Then they have stickies (Max tire,strech flush,post pic of your car) READ ALOT. or google S14 18x10.5 on google see what comes up.

check sites like Canibeat/Stancenation/motormavens/hellaflush/etc they post tire/wheel sizes.

FYI a 18" Rim to fit a WIDE S14 is gonna be $$$ Unless you get a XXR and space the shit out of it.

yeah if i run 9.5 +15 with stock metal on an s13 no reason a 10.5 +15 wouldnt fit on an s14 with 30mm fenders...

im basically going for a helaflush look for every day driving, my cars already slammed so the ride quality isnt the best but its decent. When i do things such as track or drift, i have a second set of rims already that can be beatin.. I dont mind running small spacers if i have to either. I plan on spending somewhere between 600-1400 on a decent wheel/tire combo. part of my winter project Smile.


Ill do some reading, thanks for all the great input so far.

10.5 +17 fits on an s13 with slight pull (1.5 deg camber). Cobra wheels (rears) are that wide and a lot of guys run them. For an s14 with a 10.5, if you willing to roll and pull a little, you can throw +5 to 0 on it

I stand corrected. Yes, I have checked out some photos and WOW.... with 30mm overs... you might as well go with 11" or 11.5"..... with negative offset... -5 ish? This here photo has (rear) 18 x 11.5 -6 offset. 265/35 tires. and 30mm overfenders on... That's what you're lookin for? Herrafrush!
