New Wheels... Lipped Gaurds?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just bought some new wheels. :)

The are 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear.

On the rear i am fitting 265's and know i need lip the gaurds on my 32.

Just wondering if people know of a good place in melbourne to do this..... and also what its worth to do?

Any info i really appreciate.

Once rims are on ill be posting pics =)

how easy do the guards "flare" on an r32 gtst??

im undecided as to get some nice rims that dont fit, and make them fit, or just get different rims later.

ive found some awesome rims that look phat on the car, and most importantly, they are the right price, from what the importer can tell they are 17x8 and 17x9, but the 255s on the rears fit too well, so im thinkin they might be a 9.5" and 8.5"

the rears, with the car still jacked up, the edge of the rim was almost an inch out from the body.. the top of the tyre was about 15mm out.. but with a stretched 235 tyre it will come close, so some slight flairing will be needed.. im just worried that the rim itself will still be sticking out too far to look any good

the fronts stuck out a bit, but not an issue, ill just fit some wider guards or something but the fronts didnt have tyres on so i couldnt drop it down to check fitment properly.

i might go back and just put a rear on and see what happens.. my car is pretty low and has lots of rear camber at the moment so hmm...

the rims in question are Panasport GT's and suit my 32 really well.

so do i get them and flare the guards to suit?? or just not get them?

cheers

look at the wheel and on the inside will be the size and offset...

from this someone will be able to tell you how it will fit on a 32gtst

15mm out and stretched tyres should fit fine....

i'm running 18 x 9.5 +30 and it sits around 10mm out if my guards, and i deff have room for another 5mm i also have near flat camber and the car is slammed pretty far. i run 235's

i checked for a sticker or any sign of an indication of offset or size.. nothing there... the shop annoyed me and when i got the wheel on and saw instantly that it didnt fit, i cracked it and didnt really have a good look i guess. my bad.

do you know the offset of those wheels?

i think 265 /19 will be too much for gtst guards , unless it has like +40 offset?

hey Excess...

They are plus 38 offset.

When i spoke to the dealer he said they would fit but might need to tuck the gaurds / lip the gaurd a little bit jut to make sure.

Im going to wait till the wheels get here on Monday and try them then see if i need to.

Was just curious, im sure people have had this done before and was wondering a good place to get them done. (around melb)

hmm being 19" its most likely you'll have to roll. with a +38 offset you might not have to lip unless ur car is super low. i think 265 might be a little over kill if you want to really tuck them in. run 245 or 255.

Did you even take the car off the jack? Once you do the the wheels will camber inwards and might fit without, or just lip the guards.

    • Done few measures to work out how I'm going to fit the Thermotec Exhaust Jackets to my headers, the kit comes with 8 steel zip ties and 80 clips, enough sleeve to cover each primary 600mm(24"), thus having a clip every 75mm. I test fit one of the primaries, the sleeve covers my 1 7/8 primaries well, and when the clips are on (I didnt use the clips, I used some small stationary fold back clips), there isn't any gaps which is nice. Looks the goods so far. Just need time to do final fit up, and then take it for the typical "smokey drive" until the sleeves "cook off" the manufacturing residue like the normal heat wrap smoke show. The hard part is covering the No1 primary on the 4:1 headers that obviously is bolted to the car and ducks behind the other primaries, I assume I'll be laying on my back playing "elastic man" with my arms Also purchased a few electrical glands to run the RaceTCS wiring thru my firewall as I cannot see a neat and easy way to jam the cables through any existing "holes", 3 x 16mm glands to suit 5-10mm cable, the CAT6 cable is 5.5mm and the 2 ten cores are just on 9.5mm, tight enough to keep the moisture and engine bay fumes out. They will hopefully fit on the firewall on the passenger side without to much fuss, I've had a quick look, but there will be alot more looking before the 16mm holesaw gets to to play. I'm still waiting on a rough quote from Autotech for the actual termination into the PCM and ABS modules, whilst the actual job isn't rocket science I would prefer to "pay cash" to someone with more wiring skills and proper tools for the job than me. My wiring skills stop at buying the wiring, the Deutsch connectors, drilling the holes in the firewall, and fitting the glands, any more could result in fire, or possibly bay windows in the block. Why am I drill holes, I need to feed in 1 x CAT6 from the ABS module into the cabin, and 2 x 10 core, 1 x 10 core of 8 injector out, and 2 earths, and 1 for 8 injector  in for the injector interceptor wiring and a power. I will be heading into Autotech to get approval for my cunning plan. So many coloured wires and tapping into to ABS and PCM makes Mark's head hurt......... I pay cash now..
    • https://www.jdmgarage.com.au/shop/engine/engine-accessories/oil-caps/genuine-r32-gtr-oil-cap-15255-d5501/ That says non neo rb25, I just though maybe it didn't clear the plastic cover or something 
    • Now with a fresh alignment, a lot less toe in at the rear now as it's no longer needed (subframe offset by 10mm upwards). Front toe touched up and I think I'm some what ready for All Jap Day, which might end up being cancelled due to the rain.
    • 4D table allows you to say have the slider at 0%, 25%, 60%, 80% ethanol as an example, giving you multiple maps if you will. Also removes the need to do arithmetic when you're tuning, no need to go ahh I need to add 11 to my base table cell of 8 to give me 19. I "think" it makes tuning a bit easier, however still yields exactly the same results as using the conventional compensation tables as you and I are both well versed on.
    • We're setting the backlash. "Shouldn't" need to change it as the same front centre, crown wheel and pinion are going back in that came out of it but we will see.
