tukaniSVT Thanks ... I look forward to testing these on a dry day.

We have already done 2 events ... So the year is moving nice.

wrc_fan Cool, sounds like you got a good setup, good luck this season!

tukaniSVT Yeah I did my run yesterday and I didn't notice it rubbing during my run ... but the mounted camera caught a small amount. So, I might roll the inner metal of the fender just slightly ... it didn't rub much at all until I hit a real hard turn or U-turn on the coarse.

But I am definitely loving them ... wanted to thank everyone again for the recommendations.

illinipo dont worry about it, both me and my friend have run 45 offset 16x7 with 225/50-16 hoosier A6 which run wider than these R-S3

You will most definitely have to pinch the fender a bit, especially with 40 offset.

tukaniSVT The wheels are 7" Wide. These wheels have an offset of 40.

01-30-2011 10:31 PM
illinipo how wide are the wheels?
01-29-2011 01:39 PM
hypnoticracing what offset were you going for? 40 is definately better then a 45

tukaniSVT Yeah ... but the shop I got them from gave me 40+ offset ... I didn't realize how far in that was ... eeks.

drunkyoda i think you should be fine. im running 215/45/17 on eibach pro and i dont scrape. you might need the little spacer as the tires will flex as your auto-x'ing

I finally have my wheels and tires ... but I am a bit worried about rubbing.

The Rota Slipstreams ... 16"
And the Hankook RS3 - 225/50/16

I will be mounting these tomorrow at the shop ... do you guys think I will need like a 2mm spacer? Im worried to do that also ... but I have heard of someone with a SVT that has the 225/50/16 with rotas and is fine.
