1998 mustang cobra wheels clear 30mm caliper (17x8 30mm offset)

enkie racing S 16x7 32offset do NOT clear 30mm calipers, and probably not even 26mm. you need at least an 8 or 10 mm spacer for them to clear.

well if anyone did a 5 lug swap, the bolt pattern on the 300zx and the S14 I believe is that same size,if so then any wheel that fits for the 300zx should clear the calipers, right?


As for wheels I wonder in the O.Z. Ulterleggera's fit? I've notice the really light weight on them and are supprised people aren't using them, so how strong are these rims also?

I had them on another car (FWD) that I had, and I liked them. I road raced with them, but never had a problem. I don't know if they clear big brakes though, never tried.

Z32 N/A wheels on an S13 with 30mm do not clear up front whatsoever.

You need a 25mm hubcentric spacer to clear the suspension. The brakes would be plenty clear if the suspension wasnt in the way.

The rears clear with no problems suspension and brakes.

Anyone know of Enkei RS_7 with +35 offset clearing? They did come off a 300ZX, but making sure with the S14 of mine.

Steve, this is a great idea for a thread! I'm going to move it to the Wheel forum, as it really belongs there and will be a good resource for a long time to come.
