i just got some procomp alloys from the usa. i havnt tryed to fit them yet but after reading this i just went out and fitten them, no idea why procomp said that to you but my 16x8 -12 offset fit on fine with at least 15mm clearnce from caliper

ha ha ha i bet ya you were shittin for five min after reading my post, yep i spoke to them and asked for the rock crawler series 98 and they said no they have problems with fit.. I've seen another member with them on so I've messaged him and waiting on reply on his size and offset.. i was going to settle for sunraysias but thought I'd find something with bit better style, with tyres on are your tyres going to stick out past guards?? thanks for help mate :shakehands:

i was shitting it pretty bad cause i had another mate ask if they where going to fit and said alloys usualy wont.
yeah its going to stick out a fair amount, they say 0mm offset on an 8inch rim will bring the rims out levle with the gaurds, ive got -12mm (extra 12mm out) and with tyre yeah its going to stick out a bit, which i dont mind.

if you dont mind me asking how much did they want for the wheels?

sweet as so i think i should stick to 0mm offset cause i want it to run flush(cant be bothered with the law saying tuck your boots in bla bla bla), i didn't get price cause there was nothing to suit my d22, i must have a different unheard of model that nothing fits.. import from neptune you know ha ha ha I'll ring them on Monday and wind up the attitude a bit and see what happens when or if i get a price I'll let you know, where did you get wheels from?? can i go through them also?? thanks :cheers!:

they probably dont fit on factory offset due to the shape. just get a further offset rim should fix the problem. Stock is +40 i think

have a look on procomp web site, the alloys only come in a few offsets hence why i had to go -12mm

i got mine from low range offroad as it was almost half the cost then to buy them in aus

what you want is 16x8 inch rim with 0mm offset thats idealy but most of the rims dont come in 0mm offset.

- offset make it stand out more, + will bring the wheel back into the car, but you may run into clearnce problems.

there is nothing wrong with the tyres hanging out if you got then covered however i do beleive there is a maximum you can go

oh ok its making more sense now, when you say clearance problems is that maybe what pro comp told me meaning not clearing the calliper??? hmmm bit of homework to do b4 i hand over cash

i had a look at off set calculator and it has current wheel wideness as in 7inch and it asks me to put my current offset, what is the offset on a 02 str standard 16 inch rim though??

You will have problems with tyres rubbing at full lock with any rims with 0 or neg offset without bodylift. Mate with a stock D22 had 16x8 -5 with 275/70R16 fitted and had trouble turning back to the tyre shop to get them taken off, couldn't even get the wheels to full lock as the rubbing was that bad. Turn your wheels full lock (on the ground) and check out how close they are to the mudflap to see how little space there is. 16x8 +20 with 265/75R16 should fit with some trimming of the mudflap.

Cheers

P.S. Stock D22 str rim is 16x7 +40

I have 0 offset on mine and only had to trim a little off the mudflap.

do you mean removing the inner plastic inside the wheel arch? do you know anyone who might have a set standard 16inch str rims not stressed about tyres cause i'm chasing down a set of bf goodrich at ta ko's or mt atz 4 ribs

ljacko78
10-01-2011, 05:34 PM
yeah - bit of plastic on the inside of the front mud flaps. Lock the wheel full and you will feel the bit that needs trimming

Petes navstr,
just thought i'd reply to your PM on here so others can read it (have been getting lots of PM's about my rims)

I have 15x8" procomp rockcrawler rims, i am not 100% sure about the offset but from what the guy at Perth 4x4 said... they are the same backspacing as a 7" rim with 0 offset...
so i assume my 8" rims have roughly 3.5" backspacing? so this would mean negative .5" offset... i think...
good luck!

they definately stick out past the std flares with 33x12.5 tyres, about 35-40mm.

thanks mate for getting back to me, yeah i think i'm going to try 16x8 with either -12mm 0r -20mm or anything in between those two measurments, i'll try any offset but i dont think -00 is goin to work, :dontknow:

yea that would be roughly -12mm offset. neg 12 and 0 offset are common patrol offsets. -25 is a common cruiser offset.
Sometimes its easier to not mention what car you want to put it on, it only confuses them. Just ask for a 15x8 with -neg whatever offset.

Hey mate. Noticed you imported the wheels from the States yourself, just wondering who you bought them off and did it save you much money with the postage costs?

Thinking of importing some myself if i can find a dealer willing to send and for a good price.

Cheers

Pete
