don't do it. that is a horrible offset and size.Hey guys im really sorry for bumping this thread but I literally cannot find anyone with this combo. I found a screaming deal on work meister sr2's and I want to pull the trigger on them but I have no idea if they will fit especially with the merc bbk up front. I'm fairly certain they will but I want to know your guys' input on them. They are 18x8 offset +48 18x9 offset +62. The offset is so high and idk what they might look like. Any input would be awesome.
Use this website to help out..it helped me with all my wheel purchasescrazy question here.......
15x10 +63.................. any chance in hell they would fit on a mk3?
With those sizes, I'd go with 18x9.5 +23 with 255/35. I prefer a square setup if you're going to be going through corners. IMHO, it's more predictable. And it should be flush without any rubbing issues.Hi guys,
need some help on choosing the right rims size for my 90' Mk3.
Rims model I want is: MB Battle (http://www.wheelsbymbmotoring.com/product.php?wheel=Battle&finish=Matte Bronze), and in 18" size.
I want to comply with French regulations (I live in France so tire size must be one of these:
285/30/18 and so on...
I don't want to use any camber, neither fender rolling. I'll just buy new suspensions set to lower my car (because 18" rims on stock Mk3 looks horrible - 4x4 style, and I'll get much better handling during trackdays).
MB Battle rims available sizes are:
I'd like it close to flush, but with keeping enough space to avoid any rubbing (since I race on tracks).
Since there is more space at rear, I may choose wider rims/or different offset for rear rims... to keep it nice looking ... or even choose wider tires...)
Will this fit without issues, and look flush/nice enough, for example ?:
Front: 18x9 ET38 with 245/35/18
Rear: 18x9 ET30 with 245/35/18
If not, what would be the best choice for rims and tire size taking into consideration the rims available sizes and compliant tire sizes I've listed above ?
Thanx guys for your help
Thanx, but with the sizes you propose, wheel and tire will stick out 29 mm (1.1'') farther than stock rims/tires :nono:. I'm not sure there's enough room under the front fender (maybe ok for rear...). I need to measure the room I have.With those sizes, I'd go with 18x9.5 +23 with 255/35. I prefer a square setup if you're going to be going through corners. IMHO, it's more predictable. And it should be flush without any rubbing issues.

I've ran 18x9.5 +22 with 275/35 all around. Dunlop Direzza DZ101 with just a fender roll with zero issues. The max out I went up front was 18x9.5 +12 with 255/35, and it rubbed then. That's max out you can go with a rolled front fender.
Not sure what you need adjusted, that's pretty decent fitment. Usually people go a bit too wide with XXR's and they don't have the offset right. Yours seem to tuck in quite well.I know I need some adjustment but really satisfied with the result... I have some xxr 531 hyper silver with 18x8.5 (+35) on front and 18x9.5 (+35) on the rear with 225-40-18 on front and 255-40-18 on the rear
Can you guys help me size wheels for my supra? I don't want to roll fenders if possible and I think I want to stick with 18's all around (unless you can convince me to go 17's). I'm looking to get Cosmis Racing XT 206-Rs.
17×8 +30mm 5×100 & 5×114.3 CB: 73.1
17×9 +5mm 5×114.3 CB: 73.1
18×9 +33mm 5×100 CB: 73.1
18×9 +33mm 5×114.3 CB: 73.1
18X9.5 +10MM 5X114.3 CB: 73.1
Thanks for the sizing help in advance.
18x9 +33 is your best option you listed. 235-40 fronys and 255-40 rears
You guys rock. Thanks very much!Agreed, the 18x9 +33 with a 255/35R18 tire will put you even with the outer quarter panel. (maybe just slightly past, but not visually). You will probably only rub on really big bumps. My old Work wheels were a +42 offset with 255's and the quarter panel lip would just touch the sidewall top portion if I hit a big dip at about 140 kph. Other than that, they never touched. (mind you... my suspension is a bit stiff)
Tires have different "shoulders" so on a rounded shoulder, you probably would never have an issue. My tires were sharp shouldered. Don't forget the hub centric rings though.
