Sorry to throw this in here, even though there's a wheel/etc forum but I figured people looking here might know a bit better...and I'm a bit of a skyline newbie!

There's 18" alloys currently on the r33 I just got, and it's lowered on coilovers. At full lock there's some rubbing...

I'm considering downsizing the alloys to 16x8's (Rota grids) but the whole concept of offset is confusing the hell out of me.

The Rota wheels are 16x8 and +10 offset, will these fit my r33 gts (without any problems)?

on a skyline r33 gts/(t) the standard offset is 33 to 35. the lower the number the more they stick out the arch methinks ...

I would say look at 17's and you need 4 by 114.3 pcd for the na .. as a posed to 5 by 114.3 for the turbo.

plus ten is a bit extreme. the gtr ones are 23 or 30 and they stick out a fair bit ona gts if they fit at all.

For service parts and spares, including NA
conceptua Tuning.
