Yay or nay on fitment? Im almost certain they will, but I want to make sure.

I have rolled fenders and fully adjustable suspension.

Was going to run 195/50 tire

Stock 510 sturts yes.
280 ZX struts I think youll need a spacer.
Ichiba.com makes good spacers
Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

I was test fitting a VTO 15x7 +18 and had like 1/8" between the rim and 280ZX strut tube.

With a 195 Tire, coilovers set above the tire and short springs the +18 works on a 280ZX strut, but a +20 is going to need a thin spacer.

Being new to the ratsun, never had to think much about offset. Currently have 14 inches of steel on it, but would like to get 15s, will15x6 fit with stock suspension without rolling the fenders? with what range of offset? What about if I ever get the 280zx struts, how much does it lower the front?

I have 15x7s on my car +25mm offset with a spacer that brings them to +21mm... running a 205/50 tire they fit fine up front with some roll and tug on the funders (minimal tug) and plenty of space in the back on my wagon

Fancy,
15x6 +24 offset using 195/50-15 tires will fit fine w/o rolling the fenders. If you go to 280ZX struts you'll need to add a thin spacer to clear the strut tubes.

That's the exact size of my Rotas. Fit great front and rear. Front fenders slightly rolled. I have 510 struts. I did add a 1/8" spacer when I put my RCAs on because the tie rods were really close to the rims. Spacers solved it. I have 175/55/15 tires for a little more room. Drove it to Vegas and back to Salt Lake at this height.

Thanks Dave...and don't mean to hijack the post with my newb questions...but hear I go :)

So with +24 offset...is that pretty tight? meaning not much wiggle room on strut or fender side, or is there a bit of range and is it more about appearance at that point? Also, since you all talking about the 15x7...saw those 15x7 with 0 offset, are these pretty much not doable unless you have fender flares?

As always, thanks for the info and patience!

+0 offset won't work unless you have flares, the guy selling those wheels had big bubble flares on his 510.

The strut side is tight with stock struts, but works. The fender side is fine at all but the lowest ride heights and then it is only during near lock turns that it may hit.

Rota RB +25mm with stock struts will fit. 195/45/15 nexens tires from tires ez.com will fit EZ.

if you get coil overs on 510 struts you have to keep the perch above the tire and get a 7 inch tall spring.

15x7 0 offset will fit the rear just fine but you will need negative offset or spacers on the zx fronts. I have 15x6.5 +17 in the front on my zx set up and have less than 1/8 clearance on the tire to the strut tube.

I yeald to the wisdom of Q on this one.

Fuck!!!!!!!! I guess QTip was right...

I'm running 195/50-15 tires and the fender lips have been rolled. If the inner lips of your fenders are not rolled they will not fit.
