Wheels/Tires Fitment *noob

Postby need2speed94 » Sun Jun 17, 2012 4:56 pm

Alright I'm looking into buying some XXR 962's:

Will those ^ fit good with 245/45/17 tires on an S13?

Yes those will fit, that is an extremely tall tire though. You might want to look into something more along the lines of 245/40/17, maybe even a 235/40.

www.rimtuck.com is a great resource for wheel and tire setups.

Thanks for the info man, and actually my friend said the same thing about that. A bit too much sidewall for some, but the thing is, I didn't plan on lowering it that much... less than 2" actually. I wanted to pick up some Tein S Tech lowering springs and call it a day suspension wise. Coilover ride quality isn't for me :)

I am currently running kyb agx w/tein s-tech springs, I just picked up some 17x9 +15 and was looking into tires. I noticed that to run a decent sized tire up front I would likely need a 5mm space to clear the beefy spring. Hell, even with my 17x7 +42 I couldn't even run a 225/45 without that spacer.

As I am talking to more and more people it seems that the front is usually where the clearance is an issue?? So far from what I've accumulated I plan to run a 17x9+35 all around with 15mm spacers and a 235/45 tire. And that will just be on stock suspension plus S Tech springs.

235/45 is actually the size I plan on going with. Gonna get some yokohama s-drives. What are you going with?

Whatever tire's my drifting buddies can get me for cheap lol. They just get some cheap $40 tires and go through them like it's nothing. Once I'm over the whole drifting thing and get back into straight line I'll throw on some Hankook V12's.

I don't think drifting is something you "get over", you might get sucked in for a while haha. Those hankooks are a great bang for the buck :bigthumb:

Ahhh well then I'm going to be SERIOUSLY broke lol. Yeah I know right! haven't got to throw em on anything I've owned :/ but I've driven an S2K with V12's all around. Gotta say I've never been so happy in a Honda :)
