Will 14x8 -13 offset rim clear the front on '77 280Z?


Recommended Posts


I was searcing the forum and found no direct answer in regards to

this specific question for a 1977 280Z

Trying to see if a 14x8 rim with a -13 offset clear the front wheel well without

rubbing or the need for fender flares.

Also how will they fit the rear.

I used a tire calcutar on this website here


with the above demision with 14x7 Zero offset on 215/60/14 tires for the

first wheel on left which is what I have on front.

And compared them with 14x8 -13 offset on same tires for

the second wheel to the right.

Specs show my rims are 4 inch backspace aswell as the 14x8 -13's.

But my rims are 7 inches wide and stick out 3 inches from the mounting suface

why the 14x8 -13 stick out by 4 inches.

Will this incure any problems?

Will I need a thinner tire sidewall (not so bubbled out like my Goodyear Wingfoots)?

Thaynx again guys for any help once again.
