I want to change the wheels on my XY 351

Currently I have 14x8 and 15x8 Magnums. At present the rear is lowered and the tyre sits inside the wheelarch without rubbing (just)

Does anyone have any experience in regard to sizes/offsets etc?

I am leaning towards 15x6, 15x8.5 Centerlines at present but I am unsure of what Offset I require - will 3 3/8 backspace fit??

Will 10" wheels fit under the guards?



I would like to test fit but unfortunately I am too far away and the car isn't moving until the new wheels are on

You need centralised 8.5s at the back with 265 60 series or 50 series will fit fine

Id run 6s with 4 in and 2 out

4 inch would look better
