hey guys, its been a nightmare trying to find wheels that will fit my GTS-T; the front calipers stick out more than normal and it makes fitting wheels a pain; I'm looking for a set that will pretty much come flush to the fenders without having to use spacers; I'm a fan of some dish on the wheel, which makes clearing those brakes difficult; do you guys have any recommendations or suggestions; if you have a setup that works, please post! I would prefer staggered with 18x8s up front and 18x9s out back

Popular options are 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear, 5x114 PCD and offset around 30.

If you want wider, or a more aggressive fitment with them bulging out of the arches, look at offset of 12-20, and be prepared to have to roll the arch lips, that goes for front and rear - you can go wider up front if the offset if lower, wider with high offset puts them close to the suspension struts.

So Im bumping this for my own question....

Im looking at Some Enkie RPF1s in 17 or 18s...

I want them to fit well, no rubbing though... do I need the same offset front and rear or do you run different off set in the rear?

Im looking on tirerack.com using a 350z 2005 to get to the rims I want since the site doesnt really let you pick anything to look at without a vehicle selected and of course they dont have Skylines...

but which would fit best....

17s- 17x8.5 30mm -front and rear or 17x9.5 18mm on or 38mm on the rears

18s - 18x8 35mm or 18x8.5 30mm or 18x9.5 15mm

help would be appreciated as Id like to order these today.

You forgot to mention what car you want this advice for ;)
1991 GTS or 2010 GTR? ...or something in between?

Thats cool and all but Im looking at those sizes of RPF1s and just want to make sure I get an offset and size that clears the brakes and doesnt rub at all... I dont want to roll fenders or have to remove the arches...
