R33 Gts Series 2 Offsets Wheel Sizes


Recommended Posts

hey guys, just wanting to find out if these will fit my car http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com.au/viewitem?itemId=150790658484&index=0&nav=WATCHING&nid=59062035108

im not really after the look how the wheels sit outside of the gaurds either, i think the offset is +30 and its non turbo so its only got 4 studs.

thanks .

fronts will scrub n the rears will sit outside the guards unless ur running a bit of camber.

also rears will require the lips rolled or cut out to fit...

Depending on your height and tyre size if your car is low and your running wide tyres eg. 265 you will need to roll the guards but if its at standard height you wont have any problems

here is an example of 18x9.5+30 it sits nice and flush 245/40/18

How much camber are you running? I'm interested in this almost exact setup

you wont need camber on the back, mine is fine and the teins are lowered to there max on the back, but my tyres are 245/40 on the back,

fronts will rub on 3/4turn and inside of the wheels grates on the hub/strut, id go 9wide on front if doing it again.

id like to run 265 on back but not sure if it will fit though, my arches are rolled , i dont want to damage the panel by trying to arch it ..

anyone done the 265 on this riim?

Sorry mate that's not my car, I'm running 18x9.5+12, you wont need camber arms it will naturally camber in. If your looking at running +30 you will just need to roll your guards you can run 265s shouldn't have any issues as one of my mates is doing it.

9.5 on the front is not that practical, you either have the car sitting a bit high, or you have camber and with camber the front tyres wear out fast and obviously not as much contacting the road in general, but it looks the part and fills the arch nicely :yes:

Not sure what you mean by not practical? they are fine and in fact you have better handling when you have camber set to the front the only down side is camber wear on your tyres but that also happens to any setup if you don't go and have your wheel alignment done properly regardless of offset etc...

For your information you do not have to have the car sitting "high" i had my guards rolled and slightly pulled and i can dump my car on its ass without any issues, i have no scraping issues at all even with full lock. Its all in the guard work.

What size/offset did you go with? I'm thinking they are rota grid r's in 18x 9.5" +30 on the rear, but the fronts are heaps less concave, so are they 8.5s?

    • in reality the new engine was a swap alot because it was brand new vs 3 years old and the other one needing a refresh after wtac anyway but... the 2.8 is obvious capacity etc and will do current power more easily and add some responsiveness not that that was really lacking  the limiting factor with all this atm is injectors (ID1700s at 4 bar base) and turbo (precision 6780) literally being maxed out at bang on 1000hp as thats what the system was designed to do, so to go more need injectors, turbo and  maybe even intercooler but i know a guy that like his power and will see how this all unfolds  it is a rwd drive on an 050 tyre though and i am just a complete amateur so among other things the ability to drive it becomes a consideration also 
    • Not hard. It is a factory option for the car. If you are planning to do the swap yourself and you have to ask if it's hard or not, then it sounds like you will find it quite challenging to do.  Does the budget allow for the purchase of a RB25DET gearbox at the same time? Life will be so much easier if you can swap both the motor and box together, and it's not like your saving yourself any money either, you WILL need the bigger box in future. By doing it now you will save time, money and you won't find yourself broken down at the most inconvenient time in the future.
    • Thanks. That's helpful. Definitely easier to get ones for a Silvia. And this confirms my suspicions that they would work too.
    • Hi. After a 4 long/short years i wanna ask. Just ask cuz i know it would be a ALOT work but. https://3gspares.co.nz/collections/engines/products/nissan-r34-skyline-rb25det-neo-turbo-5mt-complete-engine-motor-package-104-400km-gt-t I found this engine...it looks like it has all the things you need to for the swap. It looks clean and in very good condition How hard would it be to swap instead of RB20DE NEO(factory 5spd manual) I know the gearbox is weak but it should just plug n play for a while no? I have better fuel pump(mine went bad) and brakes are from GTT. Iam just asking around to gather info. Only considering this cuz i know these guys and this engine IMO is completed package for swap. Thanks :)
