AccordWarrior is very helpful AccordWarrior is very helpful AccordWarrior is very helpful
Please post the specifications of the wheels you are looking at (the specific set), the tires you want to run and the suspension setup of your car. Without any of that information, we cannot even begin to offer advice if it will fit or not.

15" should clear the caliper just fine. The only caliper clearance issues I'm aware of on our cars arise with wagon brakes (larger than the sedan/coupe) and 14" wheels.

+25 with an 8" wide wheel might cause some problems, though. +38-+45 is where you want to be.

Just for reference, my front wheels are 16x7 +26 and I needed a 5mm spacer to not rub the caliper

My 15x6 +10 needed spacers. It clears but I can barely fit a price of construction paper between the caliper and wheel. My wheel would be pretty close to the og apache 2 if you look at them

What would rub without the spacer? The barrel, or the back of the face?

Thats cause the low offset and wide tire. Like he said about ~ +40ish will do the do

+25-6, the wheel/tire will stick out, like the a mud truck

The tire has nothing to do with caliper clearance.

The back of the face deev. But it may just be the way the back pad of the wheel is shaped. Most other wheels have a thicker back pad than mine do.

No they don't stick out like a mud truck at all. I tuck them no problem.

this is a 15x8 0 offset





You might be ok with the +25, but it'll be close

I didn't even catch that! I was focused on what would rub.

Holy crap, I put a 45 aspect ratio on 17s, and that's the larger option!

And 195 width on an 8" wheel?
