Wheel Sizes & Offsets For Skylines

Would 18" 8.5 +30mm on the front and 18" 9.5 +30mm on the rear fit a r33 1994 gtst?

I'm not an expert, but I'd say yes, with a caveat on the front.


Your +30 on the front might be a problem pending the wheels. My 18x8.75 +35mm when fitted to the front scrubbed the caliper and just looked balls. I now run +20 on the front and it's much better.

I also had 18x8.75 +35mm on my rear and it left wayyyy too much air in the guard. I now have 18x8.75 +20mm and it fits much better, almost flush. Therefore I reckon your extra inch of rim on the rear will suit a +30mm fine.

Nismo LMGT4 I have are 18x8.5+30 & 18x9.5+38

You can easily find pictures of RWD Nismo wheels. I'd say they would stick outside the guards. Depends how hektikstancenationhashtagvapebro you want your car to be, you can make them fit.

As for brake clearance, offset isn't an indicator, standard R33 GTS-t wheels are 16x6.5 +40. If those XXR wheels can't clear the brakes at 8.75", their caliper backspace is too small (i.e. "deep dish wheel design").

I'm running 17x9.5+12 and 18x9.5+12 rear. 

Wanting to get a pair of 18x9.5+22 for the rear so I can pull some camber out. 

 

Should be able to do with stock RLCAs?

Anyone with bnr32 running 18 x10.5 295/35 ?
thx

I’m running 18x10.5 +15 with 295/35/18’a on my 32 GTST. Extensive work to make em fit but not too hard on a GTR. My front guards are GTR but they’re not a direct fit. Pretty sure they’ll fit rears with a light guard roll.

How do I fix this haha. These are genuine RAYS LMGT Nismo wheels and they stick out so far it's not funny. First pic is the rims and tire combo on the car currently.

Current set up: 225/40/18

New: 265/35/18

Car: 98 R34 GTT

You can go to a body shop and get your guards extended (if the wheels clear on the inside ok)  or you can get some wheels that actually fit.

I take it even flaring is pointless or trying to get GTR gaurds is out of the question?

Anyone want to buy some genuine LMGTs 😭

Its theoretically possible, but you need custom/different guards.

No, you can't flare it to fit that much, not without getting them repainted etc etc. The cheapest way is to replace the guards. You're about 15mm too far out as it stands. I was able to fit a 9.5 +27 inside my R34 GTT guards.

Sell and buy some different wheels. The LMGT2's do actually come in 18x9 +32. I would have bought a set of these but they don't clear my (much larger than OEM) brakes.

Alright lads, time to poke your R32 Gtst knowledge

Looking to fit 18x8.5 +44 with a 235/35/18 on all corners, gaurds rolled of course. This is on stock suspension. Are they gonna fit no probs? Little bit of rubbing is fine.

Hello,

I'm a new '93 R33 GTST skyline owner from the US. Can you guys help me if the following sizes will fit? Or do I need to modify the fenders?

Front: 18x8.5 +35 245/40 or 235/40

Rear: 18x9.5 +22 245/40

The wheels are Varrstoen ES2

Thank you in advance!
