19 X 8.5 On Stock Skyline 33?


Recommended Posts

hey guys,

just wondering if someone could tell me if a set of 19 x 8.5 would go on a standard 33 gts-t thats not dropped at all without rubbing or hitting the calipers.

i was talking about this topic with a friend, he has a set of 17 x 9 and he has guard rubbing when he full locks the steering. its not noticable when just driving in a straight line or if hes not full lock on the streering. he's cars been lowered 2.5", so just doing the math.. i assume, the 19" would fit my car?

putting the rims on the car at the moment isn't a posibility either..

any input would help heaps!!

You wouldn't know whether a wheel would fit or not until you actually try them on. All wheels have a different spoke design. Just say you were given two wheels with the same specs (offset, width, etc.), but different spoke design, one could fit and the other might not. You wouldn't know whether the wheel will fit unless you try them on or someone has had experienced with them.

Also to make it easier for someone to determine whether a wheel will fit or not, you need to give us an offset for the wheels you're talking about.

Cheers

i'v tried the rim on the car as a matter of fact, the thing is, i didnt move the rim about on the studs at all. it had a fair bit of clearnace, and i was hoping i could get an answer, but obviously not.. thanx for the input bud.

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
