Will the wheels fit
« on: July 25, 2016, 03:31:05 PM »
Hi guys

I am new to the forum but am definitely looking to become an active member.

A quick question for those who know more than me.. I have a 1991 r32 gtst 2 door and am looking at getting new wheels.
I am looking at some DTM Atom Gold 18x8.5 15p all round.

Will I be able to fit these legally? Some people have told me I will only be able to fit them using illegal tyres (stretched I assume?)
Will I need any guard roll etc?

Thanks in advance.

Try this site. Type in your old wheel setup and your desired wheel setup and it should give you an idea of how the the new wheels will poke out.

Minimum tyre width for 8.5 wheels is 225 - optimum is 235 or 245.
There are many reasons NOT to use stretched tyres apart from the fact that they are illegal.
