Wheel Fitment For Rs4-S

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

my car is a manual S2 (narrower track in the rear).

i'm looking at ordering new rims and am tossing up between

19x9.5 (+22) all round

or

19x8.5 (+22) front, 19X9.5 (+22) rear (wider in the rear to compensate for the narrower track).

can anyone foresee any probs? tyres front and rear will be 235/35/19 (as i have them already). will rolling diamater be affected much from the extra stretch on the 9.5 rears over the 8.5 fronts?

You will have attessa issues if you run 8.5 front and 9.5 rears. I run a 18x8 + 6 rears and 18x8 + 35 with a 25 mm spacer and it sits pretty well

I run 19x9.5 +12 all round

The rears are flush at 320mm ride height and 245/35/19 tyres are a bit stretched. The rims are wider than the tyre, so the cloest thing to the shocks. No rear guard rolling needed on my car. Clears by 3-4mm

The +22 wheels you are looking at will run very close to rear shocks being 10mm further in than my car

You may need to check this before you fit the tyres

The fronts should sit pretty flush. As I have the R34 front, the guards a approx 25-30mm wider than stagea ones.

so darrin, perhaps a 10mm slip on spacer for the rear and everything will be ace?

10mm worst case. You may need to fit longer wheels studs, so more cost

You maybe ok without one or maybe just a 5mm

Also depends on what brand of shock as the diameter can vary. I have Bilstiens in mine

I'm running 17x9 +19 all around Matt, the fronts are slightly tucked, but the rears are flush with 235s & no guard rolling, though this is on an auto S1.

auto series1 wont help as it has wider rear track. i have 18x8 with a 34+, they sit in abit, standard kind of offset. the front is about 10mm of perfect flush and the rear is about 20-25mm but its hard to judge with 2'45 degrees of camber in the rear.

i rekon your second option is good but you need a lower offset in the rear personally, fella i got my coilovers off has a 15mm bolt on spacer on the rear of his 260RS for 17x9s.

or buy you first option and throw a 10mm hubcentric spacer at the rear

    • 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
