Deep Dish Possibilities??

Postby Adrian » Tue Mar 20, 2007 8:52 pm

Thinking of changing the wheels on the Altezza and was just wondering what kinda dish is achievable on the wheels without messing about with the set ups too much??

Any info would be great :!:

I've got 19" League Anarchy rims (19 x 8.5 i think), not sure off the offset they were on the car when i got it :lol: i can find out though if needs be. not even sure if they would even be considered deep dished but heres a link to a pic. I'm happy with them no fouling or scrubbing on 225/35R19 tyres

I have 18*8 on the front with a 41 offset and 18*9 on the back with 41 offset too. No problems with catching at all

So lads is it safe to say that you could easily get away with fitting a set of 18's with no scrubbing/rubbing etc. Was going to invest in a new set at the end of the month along with some Tein lowering springs. Do you lose any ride comfort with a bigger wheel? Also is there an increase in road noise at all?

The wheels came on the car and its lowered on RS*R springs. its crazy low too as in you cant get a finger on top of the tyre at all. The only reason mine don't catch on the back is cause the rear tyres are stretched on. The lip of the rim on outside the body. Plus it has about 2 degrees of camber at so that helps it clear too

Get 20s :P 8) I was half expecting to have to change the wheels because of noise, comfort and rubbing issues but they've behaved impeccably.
And judging by how rarely mine bottoms out even when launching the odd time off hump back bridges there'd still be room to lower things an inch or so i'd say without any worries. So to conclude, go for it :wink:
