Postby g562a » Thu Feb 14, 2008 11:23 pm

i have an o3 g35 coupe and i bought the 06 forged wheels.....i would like it to be a little more flush with the car so i want to buy wheel spacers, and i have the s-tech tein springs so it is dropped. Does anyone know what size wheel spacers i can use without rubbing? but still want it as flush with the car as possible....thanks all

10 or 15MM should move it out flush...There are a few guys that have done it.

Joe, to me it doesnt seem like 15MM is a lot, would I have a chance of getting the 25MM and it being too much ? I have been thinking about this for a while, but cant seem to find any Before/After pics....

I think if you go that much, you have to do a fender roll....

Most that upgrade to 10.5' wheels in the back run about a 20 offset. The 19" forged wheels are 8.5" w/33 offset. Add a 25mm spacer and now you are @ 8 offset. On a 8.5" wheel that would be almost ideal.

current wheels specs:width: 8.5" offset: 33new specs with 25mm spacer:width: 8.5" offset: 8

Inner clearance 25mm more(inside of wheel to strut housing)

outter position extends 25mm (position of outside edge of wheel)

current wheel specs:width: 8.5" offset: 33

New wheel specs:width: 10.5" offset: 20

inner clearance 12mm lessouter position extends 38mm

Up front I would run a 20mm spacer.

I would also run longer wheel studs as well. 25mm = 1".

Yes you need to know those first to determine what size spacer you need. Are those your current wheels in the pic? On the side of the hub of the wheel it will give you width/offset.

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone knew what size spacers I should put on my vehicle in order for my tires to be flush with the wheel wells. I have a 2013 Pathfinder Platinum and I run a 235/55R20 Tire.

Thanks!!

JJ

You may want to ask in the Pathfinder forum or simply go out and measure the gap you have today and determine how far it needs to go out.
