18 × 10.5 + 15 too big on R33 or R34?


Recommended Posts

Yes, they'll rub the inner guard liner on full lock if you have a lowered GTR, which really isn't an issue, as it's not touching the guard, just the plastic liner.

No rubbing at stock height.

Yup! They sure will...

A lot of the jap wheels come in 10.5 inches wide, but most people buy the 9.5 inch versions because they can fit 265 or 275 tyres on the 9.5 inch rims...

10.5 inches is a bit of overkill :(

Yeah, 10.5 is huge. What size tyres can u fit on 10.5's?

Also, when you say GTR do u mean both R33 and R34? And like nxtime says, will they fit R32's?

Hmmmm... Not too sure about the R32... They'll probably need a different offset.

My friend bought some "GTR Wheels", and they were the wrong offset and stuck out of his guards on his R32.

I'm pretty sure +15 offest will be fine for R33/R34

I'm sure this has been said before too but whats the max size that will fit on an R33 GTS-t with the lip rolled up on the guards but without any other mods ?

Just reviving an old thread. Will 275/40/17" tyres fit on the back of an R33 GTS-T (with/without guard rolling) ???

Secondly, has anyone ever shoe-horned a 275 onto an 8" rim successfully?

Thankyou.

I had 265/35/18 tyres on the back of my old GTS-t with rolled guards and I had about 1cm clearance, so 275s should fit.

Keep in mind I had 1 degree of negative camber on the rear wheels for circuit work, so that would have given me a little extra clearance. You won't want any negative camber if you're looking at drags.

275s isn't a recommended fittment onto an 8" rim... I think they are meant to have 235-255 tyres fitted to them.

I'm just about to put 265s on 17" x 9" rims - but that doesn't help you much - Sorry ! :P

I will be able to tell you how much clearance I have left though - and I am looking at getting my rear guards rolled, if I scrape.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
