15 X 7.5 +8 ???

Recommended Posts

I am looking at some Watanabes 15 X 7.5 with a +8 offset.

I have a totally stock 73 240Z and wonder if this would rub on the wheels wells/fenders?

 

My other choice is a nice Panasport 15 X 7 with 0 offset.

Any help?  thanks.

I bet they fit perfect actually . Positive offset should be enough to keep the tires off the lips.

I have 7.5" slotted mags now and they rub in the rear ever so slightly on the fender lip...but I do not know the offset.

Anybody else have the wheel size in question?

What size are the tires on your slots?  I'm away from home now and that's where the tires are but they rubbed too.  I'll post the size as soon as I can.  EDIT: 185/75x14 was the tire size that rubbed.

This is the only picture I have before putting the OE wheels and tires on.

Okay, I wonder if that same size on a stock 240 like mine would work...is there any difference in clearances in a 280?

If I've already ask, I'm sorry but are those the black satin rewinds from msa? Not too long after I bought graphite they came up with those. I like them. They look real good on your silver car.

Thanks. Cliff

I hope I'm not speaking out of turn but he replied to me in #12 he had to use a Dremel to grind some to get the caps to fit.

I have Rewinds and really like them. Love them price wise compared to others that look very similar. I think I read they're lighter too.  I know one guy on here runs them on his race car and it seems like he said they were lighter.

The Watanabe caps I have found are 63mm (way too small). Then their are chrome 73mm (which you can paint black) In order to get these to fit you need to shave about 2mm off the inner hub.

I want to put Rota RKR wheels on my 73 with 17x8 wheels and 225/45/17 front and 245/45/17 in rear. Tommy, on your 17x8 what is the offset?
