Watanabe RS-8, 16 x 7 front and 16 x 8 rear, staggered set.

they fit in stock wheel wells at stock ride height with no problem, haven't lowered it yet so I'm not sure about fitment with adjusted height.

all four tires are 225/50



I had staggered wheels and same-size tyres all round prior to 5-studding and IMO it looks odd, with the rear having a little stretch and the fronts not.
Right now I have S14 OEMs with 10yr old 225/45 gypo runners to roll around on and meh they're too fat for the rims. Need some 8s, or better tyres.

For reasons unfathomable to mankind, my S12 is currently fitted with wheels from a mining truck. Here are some pics in keeping with the spirit of the thread:







Some kind of TSWs I think, with 225/50 R17 Kumhos. It looks silly. Anyone dare guessing the offset of these leviathans? I haven't a clue...

So yeah, I've decided to get me a new set of wheels; 15x8" and strap 195/50s on them. Judging by the images of 8" wheels in this thread, ET0 pokes out too much in front (looks good but means trouble with the law and vehicle inspection) yet ET15 makes them look too narrow in the back. I'm thinking of ET15 front and ET0 back (running stock S12 struts and IRS).

Thoughts?

Edit: Sorry for bumping an old thread. Dunno how much of a no-no that is here, but I need some guidance from you enlightened folks, no matter how dreary the question is :D

Look like 17x7 or 17x7.5 with a +35 to +40 offset to me.

Can't comment on the 15" though.  I have 15x7 +6 on mine, but I have S13/S14 front suspension and a shortened hilux diff in the rear.

Thanks, seems reasonable. I went with silver/black 15x7 Work Equip 03 knock-offs. I wanted +10 offset in front but had to go with 0 all around cos they didn't have any +10 with 4x114.3 bolt pattern. Oh well, hopefully they'll pass vehicle inspection even though they're gonna poke out in front. I'll get something better fitting later.

Out of curiosity, you know how much (if anything) the S13 front strut conversion will affect track width? I have a set lying around that I want to install.

Roughly add 10mm each side.  S13 LCA is about 10mm longer than S12 and then S14/S15 is another 10mm longer than S13.

15x7 all around. +4 rear and +10 offset in front if i remembers it correctly. sitting on home built coilovers, modded knuckles, adjustable top hat in front. rear only have the shorten spring.
little more about knuckles. passenger side knuckle in the driver side and the driver side in the pass side so it acts like extended lca  :tongue2:

There we go! Work Equip 03 knockoffs, size 15x7", with slippery 195/50 economy tyres. I also made a new grille from an aluminium mesh sheet. I think it looks too blingy though, so I'm gonna paint it flat black.





It looks and behaves infinitely better. An S13 strut convo is next on the to do list.

That would be the side indicators... They're not pretty, but in my country we're required to have them. Clear ones would be less conspicuous, though I'd rather spend that money elsewhere :P

Thanks! Yeah, the mesh ones are nice but I'm not a fan of the horizontal stock grilles (which my S12 suffered from). I've painted it black now though and it looks an awful lot better.
