Hey everyone,

Myself and im sure others are interested to know what size wheels fit on what cars.

Say how wide and big can you go on an ED without mods? once you roll the arches? or with further modification. We can't all afford to buy and try multiple wheel combinations.

With input from multiple members, ill be happy to combine it into this first post in a readable format.

If everyone wishing to contribute info use the below points just copy and paste and leave it as is if you don't have all the points.

- Model car and offset
- Ride/Spring height
- Rim size and width
- Tyre combination
- Mods needed / recommended
- Other info

This should be fairly helpful to many members including myself. Feel free to input your advice or suggestions.

Just realised this may not be the best place to post topic, sorry.

Regards.

So here we go

Early E series

ED
- ED +18
- Ride/Spring height
- 17x9.5
- Tyre combination
- Stock Guards
- quote, I reckon you could squeeze a 0 offset 11-11.5" rim in there!

Late E series

- EF
- Ride/Spring height
- 15"
- 225/50
- Mods needed / recommended
- Other info, let it be legal or performance ect.

- NF
- Superlow springs
- 17x8
- 255/40 rear, 235/45 front
- Front guards rolled
- Other info, let it be legal or performance ect.

AU

Front

- 20x8.5
- 245/30
Rear
- Supers
- 20x8.5
- 245/35
- 245 max with 20's in the rear. au's need 245/30/r20 on the front or they foul on the upper wish bone. car has ultras in the front with the guards rolled and no issues

i put 20's with 245's on my au and had to get the guards trimmed and to just clear and with a car load of people it scrubed on the inner guard so 245's are the max an au can take in the rear with 20's.

My NF has 255/40 17 on 17x8 on the rear.
235/45 17 on 17x8 on the front.
Superlow springs and e series offset. Needs the front guards rolled slighty. Rears are fine.

CAT600 on AFF - AU:
19x11.5 +33 offset rear with 315's under stock guards.

ED: 17x9.5 +18 under standard guards. I reckon you could squeeze a 0 offset 11-11.5" rim in there!
