Wheel offset calculator What does offset mean?*stock offset is 40mm on S13/S14*

Wheel weights Provides a great collection of wheel weights by diameter, but does not tell you weights by width(so it may be off on certain wheels because of width differences)...still a good 'rule of thumb' type guide to what wheels are worth buying for weight saving purposes.

More wheel weights and specs Like the site above, provide lots of useful wheel information, weights, bolt patters, finishes, etc.

Wheel Information stock specificationsBOLT PATTERNS (Torque spec).4-lug: 4x114.3 (72-87 ft/lb)5-lug: 5x114.3 (72-87 ft/lb)THREAD SIZE: 12mmx1.25

Suzuki uses 60.06 hub bore. While the models Aero and Swift use a 4-4.5 blot pattern, the hub bore is too small to fit the 66.06 Nissan hub. No fit.

Toyota:most all toyota cars use smaller hub bore than Nissan, hence the wheels no fit! Several cars such as the '75-85 Celica GT RWD use 4-4.5 bolt pattern with a 60.06 hub bore. No fit. Avalon uses 5-4.5 with the same 60.06 hub bore. Again, good bolt pattern, bad hub bore. Others:Cressida, Corolla RWD, All Supra incl. Turbo use 60.06 hub bore. Every modern Toyota uses 60.06 or even smaller 54.06 hub bore. None will fit the 66.06 Nissan hub.

No VW

No Volvo (65.07 and 67.07hub bore, but the 67.07 hub bore wheels are the wrong bolt pattern)

More to come later!-Chet
