Wheel Sizes & Offsets For Skylines

Recommended Posts

The question of what wheel size fits what Skyline comes up so often I though this might be a good place to post your own wheel dimensions.

Just copy and fill in the table;

Skyline model =

Wheel diameter =

Wheel width =

Wheel offset =

Tyre size =

Modifications to fit =

One of mine as an example;

Skyline model = R32GTST

Wheel diameter = 17"

Wheel width = 8"

Wheel offset = 35

Tyre size = 245/45/17

Modifications to fit = remove the front inner plastic guards, roll rear lip slightly.

:( cheers :)

Just copy and fill in the table;

Skyline model = R32 GTSt

Wheel diameter = 18"

Wheel width = 10"

Wheel offset = +1mm ;)

Tyre size = cant remember probably 245 or 255

Modifications to fit = Roll & flare guards, stick out about 4cm from existing guards. needs a rear bar for them to look good... not good for defects..... almost needs widebody...

Great idea for a thread.

I'm getting new rims soon and I'm EXTREMELY worried that the rims I get (probably from Japan) will not fit my lowered R33.

Skyline model = R33 GTS25T

Wheel diameter = 17 Inch

Wheel width = 8 front/ 9.5 rear

Wheel offset = +28mm (I think)

Tyre size = 245/45/17 F, 285/40/17 R

Modifications to fit = Gaurds rolled on rear, but need flaring to fit without touching.

Any idea how much clearance you have to the strut and also does it touch the inner guard lining on full lock?

No idea, I'll have a look and let you know.

Mine -

Skyline model = R33 GTS T

Wheel diameter = 18"

Wheel width = 8.5" front / 9.5" rears

Wheel offset = +30 front / +38 rears

Tyre size = 225/35R18 front / 255/30R18 rears

Modifications to fit = None. Car is on slightly lowered springs, very rarely will touch inner plastic guard when at full lock and hittin a pot hole at the same time <_< .

I think i've posted this link about 100 times or so in this section. But it's a very useful link.

http://marksink.com/tire_wheel_offset/offset.html

Use this to enter the offset and width of you current wheels, then input offsets of wheels you will like to buy and it'll tell you how far it'll stick out compared to your old rims, and how much clearance you'll have with the strut housing.

(maybe sk you should add this to the top post)

Thanks for the link, the idea of the thread was to get the guys posting up their actual real world exeperiences all in one place. I don't know about anyone else but I have real problems with using calculated changes (one rim to another) to know whether or not the wheels will actually fit. An example, so it's 5mm in further, does that mean it will hit on the inner guard or not? Then there is the brake calliper clearance issues.

Thats why I wanted to have a whole heap of real world results for guys to look up.

:P cheers :)
