I'm looking at 15x7 wheels, and they are offered in +38 and +15

I'm really concerned about my fitment, and I want it flush not sunken in like factory.

I'm really worried about fitment, since the back doesn't have adjustable camber.... any suggestions from someone fitting something similar.... I wouldn't be worried about it as much, except I plan to slam for VIP Kei Car styling.

I'll be up late pondering, let's discuss it... either here or on my AOL: DJMidol <----- gotta good story on that name lol. Same AOL Account for 10 years.

+38 would be sunken in. +15 would poke a little.

Personally, I'd get the +38s and get spacers to achieve the look you want.

That's what I was thinking. If it wasn't for the rear Torsion I-Beam.... I understand why Nissan did it, I just really wish we had rear multi-link, so we could get some super low offsets and wide wheels....camber makes all the difference in the world on wheel fitment, and it's pointless to do wild camber up front and not be able to in the back, so I'm gonna get the +38s and some hubcentric spacers and get to work. Flush is your friend!

hmm those offsets sound like xxr's... I'm running +15 on 16x7 and the rear is flush. I would suggest +38 for the fronts tho since they poke in the front my build in "pictures and videos" section has some pictures

Yeah, I'm gonna get the Rota J-Mags Gloss Black with polished rim in 16x7 +40. I'm just gonna space them out.


I wish I had the $$$ to buy those SSR wheels, if Beans gets them to produce a few sets, that he's throwing on the ATI Cube, but I'm not that baller.

I know everyone is goin with +15s, but it how much is that going to poke out? I tried some 17X7 +40s, and they almost cleared teh face of the caliper.. but I was thinking with spacers I'd be good... insight hotcube? You've been through two sets...

I know you're looking for hotcube's advice but I'd to say my 0.02 cents lol... My +15 16x7 poke almost an inch in the front and are flush in the rear. As a reference I am talking about the top of the wheel well and I included a pic. I think the J-Mags would look good with a 10mm in the front and 15mm in the rear. 15mm is about a half inch... but do you want to run spacers that big?

I had previously thought about the spacers. I was going to get the hub centric type that bolt to the hub, not the crappy sandwich kind. But I am rethinking the idea of getting the Maxxim Screech, in a 16x7 +15. The poke in the front doesn't bother me. I'm thinking ahead to when I get my coilovers. I want to be able to slam and be flush. I know I can get some camber correction up front, but I won't do much since I think it would look odd with a camberless rear.

Nosser, thank you very much for your post. It gave me a good look at a wheel in a similar size to what I was thinking I wanted, if I did not get the J-Mags. Your post helped out a lot, and I'm super glad you contributed!

What would you say to running a +38 up front with a 10mm bolt on hubcentric spacer? Orrrrr.... do you think it would be acceptable to camber the front with the back not being cambered? I am confused as to if I would like that. Grrrrr why can't they make a +25 and a +15...... lol

I think a +38 with a 10mm would be great! That would be a +28 in the front. You wouldn't have the wheels poke in the front and you can have a +15 in the rear and it should sit flush all the way around.

Off the top of your head do you know the centerbore for our wheels? Trying to fin out if 4lug ichibia hubcentric spacers for the 240sx would work. I'm on iPhone so I'm not near the fsm.

Thanks guys... I was lookin at the screech and after I told a friend he dicked me and bought a set... So now I'm looking at fourplays... What tire would you put on a 15 and did you have your odometers and speedo recalibrated?

I thought about the screech but I liked the I like the way the drag dr20 looked better. With a 15x7 i'd probably say 195/50. I like more rubber but if you are going to slam the cube I'd say 185/45 for a little stretch and smaller sideway.

alright..i think if you want to be flush..the 15x7 +20ish would sit right about flush..maybe alil poke.. as nosser said..the rear sits more "in" then the front..if you plan to slam the ride also..i would suggest a 195/45 like i had one my rims..i have some good stretch on them.. I also recommend a spacer to help balance things out in the back..
