XXR 502s on a st205 converted car.
I am not sure the specs yet, but I am pretty sure they are 18x8.5F, and 18x9.5R.

continued from the ST185 wheel size thread...

What's the suggested wheel width and offset for 18" wheels for the ST205?
My current wheels are 7.5J ET-35 with 15mm spacers in the rear and soon 5mm spacers up front.

One way to test fitment is to maybe use your 5mm spacers to see how much fender clearance you have. Add the 5mm and measure, then add the second 5mm to the same wheel and measure and if there is still room replace the two 5mm with the 15mm from the rear and measure. You can then see your outer clearance. You can then use a wheel calculator from 1010 tires to find a wheel size that fits in your tolerance. I would not drive around with the two 5mm spacers on one wheel though, just use for test fitment.

If you don't want to do the legwork, you can look at the previous posts in this thread and gauge you choice from them. I would say a 18x8 35et would be a safe size, you just have to look at your tire choice to make sure you clear the inner fender.

That's a good idea! Will do that after I've resurrected it from its hibernation.

I'm wondering how many Canadians are driving around in ST205s these days. Time to wheel up!

Got my new tires and wheels today:
'94 JDM GT-Four, stock TRD suspension

Previous tires & Wheels:
Again - 16x7 ET35
Bridgestone Blizzaks - 205/55/R16

Rota Grids - 17x8 ET35
General G-Mas AS-03 - 215/45/R17

Rear (plenty of space):

Front (plenty of space):

The front is quite flush, the rear still sits in the wheel arch, so it could have used some spacers to bring it more flush with the body. I'm still happy with it though.

Looks really good, quite similar to the facelift wheels.

With back spacing you mean the offset?
The 6 spoke wheel has an offset of 45mm, the 3 spoke should be the same.
