Hey,

Does anyone/traders have any experiance with Ultralite wheels and K-Sport/D2 356mm 8-pots?

What I need to know is will the 18x8.5 GTII or Nurburg Wheel fit over the brakes with a +35 or +30 offset?

Im certain a +30 will fit, but not sure about the +35 (which would be my prefferd offset at the front ;))

Thanks!

i am running atec II with a width of 8.5 ,ksport 8pots and 356mm discs and have had no issues at all apart from the quality of the wheels which is poor.

you can see there is good clearance from the disc and caliper no spacers were needed either.

Sorry for the slight hijack but can you elaborate??


Oh and I've got a friend running 8.5 Nurs on the front with D2 8 pots...no problems at all.

seriously?!! That's bad....he can't have had them long.

I am really thinking about Ultralites but this kind of thing puts me off.

Nino....I'll ask him what offset he's got to make sure.

having said that though. i think tiggers wheels are ok finish wise. it may just depend on which ones you go for.

Hi nino
Just had a word with my mate and he says he has +33 on the front and had to have 5mm spacers and longer studs to get them to fit and isn't totally happy with it.
So it looks like you'll def need spacers for +35

Apart from the stupid dinks that I caused, the GTII's are still shiny shiny, some wax one a month seems to do the trick.
