    Right im still a total noob when it comes to wheel sizes and handling, I own an S13 Currently rocking cheap crap 17" alloys , id like to upgrade to Rota's but not got a clue what offsets or widths to go for , my cheap crappy 17" wheels are currently mounted on 25 mm Hubcentrics on the front (Still not enough think i need 30mm) and my rears which are a different offset to the front , are on 5mm slip on spacers (Not enough).

    My questions is , is more offset means the wheel will poke out more or less? And i know width can aid poke as well.

    So what are people running Rota wise on s13s and getting a nice flush fit ? Im willing to use spacers if need be just dont want to buy something thats going to need 60 + MM or something mad...

    swap to 5 stud hubs and fit s14 lower front arm there are 10mm longer each at the same time cost about 100 to 150 but to will get a better choice of rims and better fitment.
    could get 18 a mate of myn has 18x10 et 30 4x114 or get old skool jdm rims like works or advans

    17x9 et20 is propably the most you can go with out arch mods. Still looks good though.
