I ran.. I can't remember if it was 225 or 215. Pretty sure it was 215 all around, slammed to the floor on standard front guards and it was fine

The rears had heaps of clearance but I had the inner lip on the rear guards rolled prior to R33 GTR wheels going on

How different is the offset? I'm running 17x7.5 +40 with 235/45 tyres and no rubbing on the back, 225/45 on the front no rubbing either.

I have been contemplating getting some 33gtr rims but if I can't run at least 235 tyres then I won't bother..

its +30 , you cant run 235 on the front im pretty sure unless you do guards work (which i didnt wanted to at this moment) ..

im gonna run 235 on the rear at least but my guards will be rolled..

any particular reason why you wont bother running anything lower than 235?

they will probably scrap eventually, just depends whether ur suspension will compress enough.

just roll ur guard and be done with it, dont know why people even bother with standard gaurds any more.

Obviously he doesnt like stretching tyres if he is running a 235 on a 7.5inch wide wheel. I have 225 on 8inch and they arent strected at all.

Thats it im rolling the rear guards , as my suspension being bit soft.. so if i roll the rear guards will it guarantee that with 235/45 will not scrape/hit?

i cant guarentee shit, every car is different, but chances are it will.

Car was damaged prior to me purchasing it, lots of damage above and below the waterline. Chassis damage, wheel lips buckled and chaffed, wiring by monkeys with brain removed, rust, graffiti.. you name it, shouldn't have bought it.. Priced up replacements considering they are sold here in aus, not jap rims, $2400 for the set. Might look into getting them repaired.

both, i found my 17x9 +30 with 235's just scraped at the rear, never at the front, although i think thats to do with suspension as my 17x9 +16's with 235's never scraped either and they were mexican up front.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
