Keep looking but have not found the answer. This will be using the 4-130 pattern.

So what is the back spacing or off set for the front using a 8x15" wheel .And the rear using a 10" or 12" x 15 " for the rear.( if they will fit)

Trying to not use a spacer.

Thanks, Randy

You might get a 9” wheel on the back but no bigger unless you widen the flares.

Is 7x15" front and 9x15"+- the way to go ? And their is still the back spacing / off set question ? Using the Factory flairs.

I believe you can get 15x8 up front (ET 10.3), the 8's would fit in the back. As for the 9's there are 2 offsets for them ET 3 and ET 15. I don't know if either of those will fit without widening the rears flares or not.

How about if the wheels are custom ? Does this make any difference ?

What about 8x15 all around with a spacer to fill the well ?
And for tires how about 225/45R15's ?

I have run 15 x 8 front and back with no problems, I used a 13mm 930 spacer on the front.

Currently running 16 X 7 up front with 15mm spacer and 16 x 8 out back no spacers. Plenty of clearance.

I had 16x8 and 16x9 on mine and it looked killer! Too bad I didn’t own them and can’t afford to buy them. Would love them for my street tires. Currently running 15x8 all the way around and they do a good job filling up the wheel wells.

the 15 mm offset of the 9x16 fit no problem.. the 3 mm offset of the 15s is a problem, as seen in my grn 814 pic,,,that being said,,I know a guy that cannot put any 9 inch under his rear flairs..

Also depends on your budget.
15x8 -$500-800/pr
16x8- $800-1,200/pr
15x9- $1,500-2,200/pr
16x9 - $1,600-2,400/pr

Unless you are looking at fake Fuchs.

Thanks, Randy


sounds like custom 4-bolt wheels. of course, you can use the factory 5-bolt fuchs as a reference because thats what most go to when adding flares.
