isn't the original intent just to fit bigger brakes?? - you can fit plenty big brakes under 16's or 17's (i've even see big red under 16's)

"... the 200 rwhp most SCs have..."

Er... when did any SCs have 200 rear wheel horse power? The most powerful stock SCs had 204hp at the crank... and they were the later year models. That's about 170-175 rwhp. And the earler SCs had at least 20hp+ less.

Oh yeah... maybe it's just me, but I don't think the 18s suit the cars at all.

Sorry for the old thread. No rubbing issues with these?

I'm interested in 18" wheels on my '85, with no enlarged fenders.

They're available as follows :

8.0x18
8.5x18
9.0x18
10.0x18

You can choose the ET for front and rear. What would be best to avoid rubbing?

Hello,

Very beautiful rims !

Do you know the weight of your GA3 rims and how wide are they, 8.5 and 11"? The GA3R are usually lighter, but how many kg, I would like to know!

The rear can't have been an easy fit, I know the hoops I had to go through to fit 9.5x17 and those 10s project 8.2mm more outboard and 12.2mm nore inboard

The lips can be massaged and the oil line relocated but there is a hard limit at the trailing arm bolts which can be seen here, though this tire is a 275. 255 gives you ~10mm more room inside

Kinesis K58's

Fronts: 8" with 225/40/18
Rears: 9.5" with 265/35/18

All have same factory height +/-. Total package as light as 7/8" Fuchs w/Brigdestone 205/225's.

I love the look and strength of these wheels.
I'm running much lighter RSR Big rotors with late Big Reds requiring 17" plus wheel or 1/2" spacers on 16".
I have ER raised spindle Bilsteins requiring larger diameter wheels.
I wanted rims that fit Turbo flared/SC without spacers bigger than 10mm.
