Will 8" Wide +35 Offset Fit 32 Gts/gtst


Recommended Posts

Back, yes. My old rims were 18x9 +45 on the back, still heaps of clearance

Front, no, will hit the upright. I had a few mm clearance with 18x8 +38 with 235/40R18s. Your rim will sit in another 8mm and the tyre will more than likely rub on the upright.

GTR offset rims usually hit the guard...

Had some 17x9 +20 on the front and they only just tucked into my flared guards (flared 15-20mm) and was running 3deg camber.

So yeah, you'd have to be lucky to make em fit...

You'd probly need to find 8.5 +32. That should fit into the stock guards, maybe need to lip them

Im not so worried about the wheel hitting the guards, i can have them modifed and or fit gtr front guards.

Im more worred about fitting a wheel with the wrong offset stuffing up the handling of the car, ie if u take where the center of the wheel is stock u want to increase it the same amount each side of this line.

eg no good having a wheel that goes out a few inches but only goes in 1 inch if u get me.

Offset is such a stupid measurement imo

cheers fellas

This means you want the same offset as stock. i.e. +40

Offset is measured from where the wheel mounts to the hub to the centre of the rim.

The fact is, you can't have a +40 rim with a decent width. There is nothing wrong with having a rim of different offset, increases track and you can fit wider rims on.

I'm not sure why you'd want to keep the offset the same.

I think that's what you're getting at, correct me if I'm wrong

I get more confused by the second.

I have heard etc, that if u put a wider wheel on and it goes futher out than it does in, compared to the stock wheel (if that makes sense) u will have problems with bump steer and stuff.

I want to run 8.5s or 9s if i have to go gtr offset in the future. If i can do this and have the car handle the way it should i have no problem modifying the guards to get them fitting.

its just when ur buying nismo's u dont wanna funk up :P

Nah, bumpsteer is caused by suspension geometry issues, usually caused by excessive lowering. You'll be fine, get the right offset, probly around +30 and you'll be fine to run that size. Remember, the smaller the number, the further it sticks out of the guard.

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
    • Recently destroyed the front driver ABS wheel speed sensor on my ENR34 due to the iron knuckle rusting and seizing the sensor head. The other one on the passenger side has been soaking in penetrant for a few days, but I fully expect the same thing to occur. The wheel speed sensors seem to be specific to the AWD applications, and likewise the more readily available units from ER34s and S/Z chassis are not the same. An OEM unit seems to be available at $200 USD/ea, which is not ideal, but still fine. But if I'm in this boat in the future, those might not be available.   Does anyone know of any wheel speed sensor that uses the same head as the R34 GTR that could be used? Not overly concerned with cable lengths as wiring will be redone to accommodate PMU wiring.
    • Isn't this at least partially due to the way the dyno run was done? I'm used to seeing runs where they start as low as 1500 rpm to see how boost develops over the 2000-3000 rpm range. Seeing the torque curve fall on its face by 6000 RPM similar to this chart gives me some confidence that this run wasn't just entirely make-believe:
