hey guys, been looking around for some mags for the tezz. everythings standard, standard springs/shocks the whole lot.

and since i have no experience with offset and etc i need to know if any of these wheels will fit my tezza with no problems.

there is 3 i have my eye on and need to know if they will fit or not tongue.gif

one is 17x7 5x114.3 offset 34..... http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-...n-467213543.htm

another is 17x8 5x114.3 offset 28...... http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-...n-468066237.htm

lastly, 17x7.5 5x114.3 offset 45...... http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-...n-467135176.htm

i am aware that some come with no tyres, but is okay as i plan to use my existing tyres. and am aware that i could stretch my tyres a little if i were to buy the 17x8 or 17x7.5

But PLEASE GUYS! need to know if those offsets will fit on my tezza or not tongue.gif

Thanks,
Harri

They will all 'fit' Just the 17x8 +28 may need some guard rolling.

I prefer this much more than the other link. Simple and nice. With rim fitment, I'd still do a test-fit beforehand no matter what..

Just be careful with changing your offset. Whatever wheel you decide on make sure it doesnt increase your track by more then your local authorities let you or you'll end up with illegal wheels and a defect notice...

here is a really handy tool to measure your track and offset

oh okay thanks, i went on that website/calculator

with the standards being 7inchs and offset is 50
and the new wheels being 7.5inchs and offset is 45

calculates too : Inner Clearance 1mm LESS
Outer Position EXTEND an extra 11mm

that should be okay right ?

btw i have chosen to get the Work Meister S2R's wink.gif

Low offsets and deep dished wheels belong on Silvia's, skylines and Supra's. I would like to believe the Altezza is in the next generation of "euro sports" even if it is infact a Japanese car but the slight concave looks so well on the Altezza.

extending 11mm will be more then ok. As bry said 7.5 with a 45 offsett is kinda weak. Go for a 8" front 8.5"-9" rear that doesnt increase your track more then what your local laws allow.

And whats with the 17" love? why not go for some 18" wheels smile.gif

I heard that running spacers require your car to be certified. Thats 400 bucks extra.

With that to add in the beginning, you have a really wide range of wheels to choose biggrin.gif.
And it feels safer too.

haha well il only get spacers if its necessary when buying the work meisters s2r's. im sure taking the spacers off before a wof shouldnt be too bad sleep.gif

im getting these wheels because they are so cheap, $450 is very cheap.
i know i have plenty of variety to choose from, but for that price im buying non branded made in china wheels, which im sure you would rather have the work meisters. happy.gif

so do you all approve of these wheels ? tongue.gif

Rim's look good but the Altezza has such a bulky lines I'd only stick 18s on it.
Better overall effect cosmetically.

But it price is an issue then those look nice enough wink.gif

hey guys, thanks for all your comments and guidance
i picked up the Work Meisters S2R's on the weekend, and it turns out that the offset is actually +50

so that makes all clearance (front brakes) as the standards are also +50

and i plan on spraying the spokes matte black, leaving the dish the standard silver.

pics on the wheels after they have been sprayed this weekend!

but for now heres the wheels after a good clean.

17x7.5 5x114.3 +50

Cheers, Harri cool.gif

I had 17 x 9 + 35 and the rears scrub and the fronts extend past the guards sad.gif Not to mention they are in every essence illegal sad.gif

Spacers in NSW are also illegal unless they come factory fitted.
