The ST185 wheel size thread (offsets, widths, etc)

Suspension and other discussion

Postby CMS-GT4 » Tue Nov 29, 2005 4:39 am

I need pics from this angle, font and back. No need to lean a tire against the car. ;)

Then I need tire width, offset, amount lowered and tire size.

Try and get them as dead on as you can.

This may be best for someone who has muitiple sets of wheels around.

Perhaps a angle shot simular to the one in your sig will help too.

If I get time later this week, I will do something simular excewpt maybe use my 1" spacer in addtion to the wheel in the front to show an example of where the wheel will go with a certain offset.

It would be nice if someone with 18"s can help too. We can do a style version and a performance version.

A good article on wheel offsets and handling characteristics.

I went to Toyo for their tire suggestion and it seems to be right on with what everyone is saying:

http://fitments.toyo.com/guide/search.php?model_year=1990&make_id=55&model=Celica&vehicle_id=21769&plus_size=+2

Oh and how well do wheels off of the latest Celica fit on an Alltrac. I'm curious because I am thinking of getting TTE wheels as my daily driver wheels:

it may help to measure the wheels as different companies size them differently.

here are links to my narrow body gt4 with 16 x 7 advanti mags. they measure 7 inches wide (inside to inside) or 7 1/2 inches (outside to outside). the offset is 40mm.

http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic ... hlight=gt4
http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic ... c&start=15

here is a link to the same car with 17 x 8 oz superleggra's. they measure 17 x 8 1/2 (inside to inside) and 17 x 9 (outside to outside). the offset is 35mm.

http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic ... highlight=

another interesting thing to note is that on the front one wheel sits in a different position to the other. i found out when doing a wheel allignment this is due to the huge factory tolarance in allignment settings.

I am looking at ordering a set of Simmons 3 piece wheels.
I spoke with the guys at the shop, and was told that I can order them in any offset, etc..
as i am after dished wheels, he mentioned that coz of the brake setup i dont have much options. so i am pretty much confused how that red car has massive dish on the first page of this thread.
i then asked about the possibility of using spacers so the brake wouldnt intefere with the rim.. he then realised how desperate i was for dish and booked me in for next week to try out some different sizes and stuff.
hopefully this goes good.
at the moment i'm thinking 16x8s with spacers will work..
but we will be trying it all out next tuesday i will let you all know how things pan out.

Keep in mind that the 17x9's want a 10-15mm spacer in front, and a 25mm in back. This makes the effective specs on those wheels like this:

Front: 17x9, +25ET

Rear: 17x9, +13ET

You can use those specs to match other wheels of other widths and offsets to the fender. This setup allows vitually no room to go out or in with it, so make sure your new wheel doesn't extend much, if at all, further in either direction.
