To put it into comparison, 8" Wide Rim on the rear of a Soarer with 35mm Offset Sits pretty much flush with the guards

its hard to say without a width man, i think z20 stock rims are 15x6 +45
so with this http://www.1010tires.com/wheeloffsetcalculator.asp you can sort out where shit will sit.

fyi i have 17x8/9 +5/+11 and the guards need a decent pull same spec as mr 1jz had when he put decent wheels on it if you want to see pics

Youre kidding right?
all offsets are measured in mm , be they + or - eg. +32 = +32 mm, -11 = -11mm
15x6+50 is stock for z20

I have 18x8.5 and 18x9, +38mm
For wider than stock +50s, you have to watch out for inside clearence (suspension, body etc.)

I have MK4 rimms on the soa, 17" 8j front, 9.5j rear. both +50. Front wheels are pretty much flush, but will hit the fender when i hit a bump in a corner, rear wheels stick out of the body by a cm or 1-2.

Sorry Edwin, but I call bullshit. There is no way MKIV +50 will sit flush or stick out of the bodywork on a Z20. If the car is at stock ride height with 0 camber all round it might come close, but won't stick out. The tyre might, if its a wide tyre, but I seriously doubt the wheel will.



Guys, think of offset like a chick's age, the lower the number, the hotter it is, but if you get below puberty (10-12) then you'll probably require some body work (ie - safeguarding your anus when you land in jail) to pull it off.

235 and 255 are tyre sizes, not wheel sizes. Your car is stock height with what looks to be positive camber front and rear, but either way the wheel is not flush with the guard, the tyre is, but the wheel is not.

8" and +50 offset on the front can lead to steering lock issues also, as soon as you remove the lock stopper bolts your wheel will be grinding on the lower A-arm.
