************************************************************
DISCLAIMER: Just because one member did not experience rubbing with a specific wheel/tire combo, that doesn't mean that you won't either. Individual results may vary based on the type of driving you do and your suspension setup.

************************************************************


OK, so the idea here is for everyone that has changed their wheels or tires, etc to post up what they have, include pictures if you like. This way if anyone has questions about what will fit and what won't, they can see what everyone else has done and get ideas.

This is not a thread for discussion, so please post only if you are putting up information. Any posts not strictly on topic for this thread will be deleted. Questions about a member's setup should go through PM to that member. Also please note that if you do not post information with the wheel, the post will be deleted. Include the name/brand, size, and offset.

If you're not sure about one of the specs for the wheel, you can try looking at http://www.wheelspecs.com

I'll start with an example using the stock wheel setups: (info taken from Doc Roadster)

OEM 16in wheels
Tires:
205/60/16 - North America
205/55/16 - Everywhere but North America

Wheels:

Weight:
21.1lbs

OEM 17in wheels
Tires:
215/50/17 - North America
215/45/17 - Everywhere but North America

Wheels:
Mazda OEM 17x7
+60mm offset

Weight:
21.1lbs

I drove pretty hard with them on too. Next time I'll try 225's.

Just got my wheels on today:

Rubbing: Looks like they will probably rub when I get my lower job done (really close).

Pics soon...

My rims:

Kosei K1 TS 17"s
Offset: +50

My Tires:
Tires: Yokohama AVS dB 2
Size: 225/45/ZR17

Rubbing: They do not rub at all, however, the tires to overlap with the rear fender. I think if I put enough weight in the back they would rub, even with the high offset and only 225 width.

5Zigen FN01R-C (The lightness - yeah baby!)
17 x 7", 48 offset

Toyo Proxes T1-S
225/45-17

Stock 16" combo with substntially worn tires weighed 46=47 lbs, the new set weighed in at an approximately 10 lbs saving per corner :)

No rubbing including some VERY hard driving ;) Not lowered, not that that would matter AT ALL - if its going to rub, it would have!
I've had 2 people in the back and stuff in the trunk - no issues.







And a final closeup ...
