My HRE's are 18x9.5 w/6.75 bs but i havent mounted them yet as i've been waiting on my car forever to come back from paint. I think they'll be fine with the 94/95 spindles and a small spacer but I hope I dont have to do any fender stuff when I do get the car back.

Just installed 17x9.5 Enkie RPF1 (16.3 lbs). 38mm offset.

Nice wheels, mind if I ask where you ordered them from? I checked Tire Rack, however I can only find a 22mm offset. Are you using any adapters to keep the wheels centred i.e. I heard that these wheels are not hub centric.

Thanks,
They are available from Discount Tire Direct, great sales, service, and prices from these guys.

I bought them used but they are in excellent condition. This place has a great price http://www.1010tires.com/wheel.asp?wheelbrand=Enkei&wheelmodel=RPF1 ($216 ea plus shipping)
A friend got a local Discount Tire to match the shipped price. I am not using any adapters.

What are the specs of the wheels? Also, what do you have for front and rear suspensions?

I have an 04 IRS now and for now SN95 spindles. I plan on using MM SN95 forward offset control arms with 17x9"6"bs Stern Face II's. I think that is as far as I can get without buying fenders. 17x9.5" 7"bs rear as well. I would like to use alot more wheel and tire one day with the factory sheet metal and Saleen ground effects. I just don't think it will happen without aftermarket fenders. I think I can get a 10" wheel in back with a 295 as well as front but will need front Tiger fenders.

What do you plan on doing to the fenders to clear? I had 00R wheels which are 18x9.5" with 275/35R18's dunlops with full negative camber and 350# springs. They still stuck out 3/8" with the factory fenders.

CCW knock offs... :shifty:

Years later got different shells and they are now on the blue coyote powered coupe 17x9.5 now. The 17x10s always rubbed no matter what with stock rolled fenders trimmed and spreaders.




BTW these are "swissed" race wheels.

I just followed your blog - subscribed to the RSS. I've my own black fox GT that's been on hold for the last 3 or 4 years, and will be so for at least 1 more. (It's been sitting in my garage in the middle of a 408w swap.) I'll live vicariously through you for the time being :)

Be careful with those wheels. Some people have no problems with them at all, while others have had them come apart on them. They'll probably make good enough street wheels, but I don't know if I'd trust them on the track. Then again, those cheap wheels are favored by a lot of drifters as they're cheap to replace when they smack walls or bounce off other cars.

So, 17*9s +36mm offset with 275/40/17s on my '92 with SN95 FCAs, 94-95 spindles, '98 cobra brakes, 8" coilovers. Ignore the negative camber, whenever I put it in reverse and park it, I get mad camber. Stock bushings. :rofl:



18*10s +24mm offset with 285/645/18 Continental GT-Rs on the other side.



Reading up on the stretching fender stuff now. Willing to datsun Z flare if I have to.
