Hello,

If i was to get 18x8 wheels on a r34 skyline.

Would it be best to get 18x8 all round or different on the front?

Thanks

Brendan

The GTR (and the GTS4) needs to have the same size wheels/tyres all round otherwise you can run into problems with the ATTESSA torque split system.

For the GTT, there's no problem having different sizes from and rear. Standards are 17x7.5 +40. Most people go with 8 or 8.5 up front and 9 to 9.5 at the rear.

I notice he hasn't lowered it at all.  I wonder what difference that would make...

If you are talking about the blue GTT in the link I posted above, then he has lowered the car. In his specs he lists Nismo G Attack S tune suspension setup and goes on in his review how he's disappointed with the drop in ride height with them. I don't know if the pics were taken before or after the new suspension, but either way it seems the Nismo S tune suspension is not ideal if you want real low down looks...

By the way they are  18" rims

Mind if I ask what offsets you're running?

I've been thinking of going for similar sizes for my R34, but my main concerns are getting the correct offsets, avoid any rubbing of the fenders (or having to roll the arches) and not having major tramlining problems...

I am not sure my son is the expert I will be seeing him over the weekend I will ask him.He tends to order things for my car I just have to pay for them :) .I think he is getting it ready for himself. :bs!:

I know the wheels are the ROH Drift wheels.

I will post over the weekend for you.

There is heaps of space between the guards will never rub.

    • Yeah it was a little confusing as stream of consciousness. To be clear I’m referring to a failure in a NEO turbo where you have another MAP sensor or something similar teed with the OEM MAP sensor for whatever reason. 
    • Cheers for the feedback. Yeah I've already got the superpro outer adjustable bushes, been in for about a year now. Bought the inner non adjustable superpro bushes last week and planning to install this week/next week. I'm kinda set on going polyurethane path to help stiffen things up a bit and longevity. RE: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Yep, Hardrace and Cusco do them about $450-$500. Rubber bush.  Would have been the easier option.
    • I have this issue with my 08 v36 sedan that has only had 98 in it last 10 years, and Im pretty sure my mechanic puts k&n in when servicing. Could it really be that simple? I've been shopping around to get it fixed, but being so cold in Adelaide, it doesn't make the noise.
    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
