What 15in wheels clear SVT brakes again?

Will the Rota slipstreams with a small (like 5mm) spacer do it like I THINK I remember? WHat if any will even if it takes a small spacer?

It depends upon the offset. The lower the offset the smaller the spacer.

Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 in 15x7.5 et 35 fit with a 5mm spacer.

Tell him good luck.

He'll need fender flares as he won't fit 255s inside the stock fenders.

There also aren't much of anything available in a lightweight configuration in 4x108 that is 15x8.5

In fact, the only wheel meeting those specs I've seen is on Lorin's National Pro Solo FSP car on Kodiak wheels.

I don't think there are any slipstreams above 7.5" width.

however, the wheels i know will fit are:
Team dynamics Pro Race 1.0 15x7 et45

for wide wheels there are few options.

there are the aforementioned kodiacs (although good luck getting them to start a production run, its not worth the $$ for them now that they have the Fiske line.)

and I've had two other sets of wheels in simlar sizes that fit.

Diamond racing wheels, 15x10, 6" backspacing, requireing 5mm spacer for the spokes to clear the calipers.

next, and my current wheels is 949 Racing 6UL, 15x10 (and I test fit a 15x9), requires a 20mm bolt pattern adapter (4x108 to 4x100).

Nope, a few wheels in 15in will fit.

Just in case he wanted to go with that route I fixed the name above.

6ULs are great wheels if your friend is willing to buy the adapters, they come in 15x8 and 15x9 as well so maybe that will be a good option.

15x9
+36 offset
13.6 lbs Gen III design
4x100

T6 heat treated
67.1mm center bore
