Hey guys,

Just looking into buying some rims for my S15 I know that 5x114.3 will fit on it fine just wondering will that offset fit?

-Rims are 18"

-I have rolled guards on it.

Any info would be appreciated :)

The offset that will work best on your vehicle is entirely a personal choice and there are a huge number of variables.

The offset required will be dictated by the wheel width chosen. As a general rule of thumb, the wider the wheel the lower the offset required to clear the inner strut tower/coilover body.

Too low an offset on too wide a wheel and it will sit outside of the guards, too high an offset and it will fowl on inner clearance.

Not to confuse you, however desired tyre width, wheel alignment, ride height and tyre profile will all play a role also.

What width wheel front and rear are you shopping for?

Check for ideas on setup and what others are running for reference.

Hope this helps,

Depends on the width of the wheel as well.

If it is wide enough, there is a good chance it will hit the suspension and rub on the inside.

Stock S15 wheels are 16 x 6.5 +45 offset

If you had the same dimensions of a stock S15 wheel but a +50 offset, it would sit another 5mm in closer to the suspension.
