    Need help please....

    I have an s13 and have just bought some 50mm jun arches. What size wheels would I need to fill them or around 5mm under flush. I have some 25mm spacers on my wheels now but they still need a good 40mm to fill them

    Any help would be appriciated

    Without more/wider spacers you'd need to either drop 40 off the offset on the same width rim or run something which equates to the same offset but with an extra 40mm, so like an inch and a half wider wheel, but thet'd probably still be just shy of flush...

    I know that's not a specific wheel size/spec, but that's basically the way it is... hard to give a definite width/offset you'd need without knowing the spec of the wheels you're running now. Hope this helped in some small way bro.

    Think they do et35 and et20 iirc, they're cheap VW scene-wannabe wheels... you do NOT need them mate.

    8j with 50mm arches will look gash

    wide arches are meant for wide wheels not spaced wheels

    Yeah man, Boo Kong's is fully sick, PM'd that Magic21 dude as soon as he said who he got the arches made by, as soon as I have spare dollar bills they'll be going on some wheels with appropriate offset/width, shortly followed by those arches. Bang on.
