ya but the offsets are way off.... you have to do a little customizing to make em fit (ex: spacers)

here's a link to a good quality set of spacers. both 5mm and 10mm spacers are sold the guy knows wheel issues like the back of his hand (check www.vipstylecars.com, user name onetonvip).

someone should get try those advans!

damnit if they weren't rear wheel drive wheels I would probably be all over them....

17x8 in the front 17x9 in the rear, you'd DEFINATLY have issues with fitment in the rear.

idk... i need to learn more about wheels.
the only thing i know about rear wheel drive cars is that they tend to be able to accept wheels with negative offsets (thus allowing for crazy lip if desired).

i would think the only fitment issues in the rear would be that the wheels would stick out beyond the body.

some bad news... the problem with lower offset wheels is that they stick out too far. adding a 10mm spacer to a +32 offset wheel = a +22 offset.

damn, you're right!

the higher/more positive/further from zero the offset, the closer it is to the vehicle.
the lower/more negative/closer to zero the offset, the further it is from the vehicle.

a spacer reduces rim offset (i.e. makes it lower/more negative/closer to zero) and thus pushes it further from the vehicle. i forgot that you subtract, not add when calculating the use of a spacer.

edit: some more info i found on offset for those interested-
Quote:


Offset is the location of the flat mounting surface of a wheel relative to the wheel's centerline. Negative offset means the mounting surface is toward the center of the car, positive offset means it is toward the outside of the car, or the wheel is "pulled in" toward the center. Offset affects many things other than just whether the wheel has the appearance of "sticking out" past the fender. The wrong offset can cause rubbing problems when the suspension is compressed or the wheel is turned. Offset affects the steering geometry's scrub radius, possibly leading to problems with torque steer or self-centering characteristics. Offset also affects the suspension's motion ratio, which directly determines the effective spring and damper rates. Potentially, in a very heavily loaded vehicle, or with extreme changes in offsets, wheel bearing life can be affected, but this is more often talked about by truck people than by small car enthusiasts. It is very, very important that the proper offset wheels be used.

The formula to find offset located above the photo is incorrect. The correct formula is: Offset = Backspace - (width/2)

While not directly a matter of offset, brake caliper clearance is a related issue. If you have, or plan to have big brakes on your car, be sure that your wheels, or the wheels you are going to use, will fit over the calipers. Spacers are available to solve the problem if they don't, but it is best to get a wheel with enough dish to meet your offset specs and still fit your brakes. Consulting the wheel and brake manufacturers ahead of time is wise. Many aftermarket brake companies even have templates of their brakes available that you can easily check against any wheel.



source: http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/te...cc_wheelguide/


edit 2: though in the end, using a spacer would ensure caliper clearance... but it would probably look a bit funny. or would it? bimmer and v dub guys/gals run wheels that stick out just a bit, and it looks cool:





beauty is in the eye of the beholder. maybe it just takes one of us to begin the journey...

i created a thread about rwd wheels on a fwd car:
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthre...threadid=12533

i guess those super advans may be a bit too wide for the rear, as 93akkord/shawn.hayden thought... or are they?!?!!?

edit: cb7deathride, i thought you said no more jdm items?!?! g square wheels to go with a g square grill?!?

I dunno, those could be made to fit, but being 9 inches wide in the rear seems like it'd take a lot of work to keep them from rubbing (alot of negative camber, and rolling the fenders would be things you would HAVE to do.)


I'll try to find the picture I've got of the EK Civic hatch that has some NASTY rear negative camber... I didn't think it had RWD wheels, but now that this has come up, it's the only thing I can figure... they looked like Gabs though.. hmm I'll look for it and post it up.
