Shittte !
I doubt they'd even fit as the offset is completely wrong.

Stock rim is 6.5" et 46mm

If the spacers are big enough they'll fit a gtst.
The offset is odd alright "might be off a toyota ".

Thats what im thinking, but once i google the offset and wheel type (BBS LM'S) i get a couple of references to Porsche's.

So, they're could be adapters fitted?!

I dont have the car atm. Its getting some work done at a garage so cant check until i get it back!

Ok i have found out that they are indeed 5x114.3 (no adapters),
so in theory with 20mm spacers these would look good on a Gtst?

They dont look all that bad on my GTR atm,

with spacers fitted

They just need a bit more to fill the whole front wheel arch on a GTR!

erm why are you running a different width wheel on a 4wd car?? is that not bad for the transfare box or something???

yeah with a 20mm spacer they should in theory sit right for the gtst,

Wheel width, wheel size or tyre size for that matter, makes no difference on any 4WD car as long as the rolling radius is the same, although personally I find it much easier to have the same all round.

As for fitment on a GTST I have no idea, but damn that's some offset!!

ah so its just like not being able to run 17's on the front and 19's on the back??
always thought there would be a different power dispersion with different sized wheels on a 4wd.

No Mick I think you're missing the point, you could theoretically, run a 16, 17, 18 and 19 on each corner at the same time as long as the tyre size choice compensates for the rolling radius, ie you would need a different size tyre on each corner to achieve to same rolling radius.

Damage to the transfer box is caused by the wheels turning on an overall different radius, so although it's possible to run different size wheels it's very seldom practical to do so.

In this case both front and rear are 18's and the width will play little part in the scheme of things as the overall radius will remain the same assuming the same size tyres are used.

slacker if you can get them to fit then keep them, BBS LM's are a nice set of wheels.
