Based on my math, you'll actually gain a bit over a half inch of strut clearance going from 7.5" +45 to 8" +25. So inner clearance won't be a problem, but you're going to extend an inch out towards the fender, so stick a ruler on your rim and measure out an inch - and that's going to tell you how close your rim will be to the fender.

Not annoying at all. Hence why I made this thread to help out people who want proper fitting wheels.

As stated, you will have 14mm more inner clearance than you have now and will bump out 26mm (1.1 inch). Since your wheels clear now they will not have a problem at all with the new wheels. Even if your wheels now are +40 you will gain 9mm more clearance on the inner and push out 21mm.

114.3 pattern wont fit our cars. stretched tire is just a smaller tire being fitted on a wider rim.

Look on the inside of your wheel. Somewhere it will have stamped the size, width and offset. Most likely on one of the spokes.

As stated with 114.3 which I believe is also 5x4.5 you need an adapter to change lug patterns. Minimum adapter width for this would be 20mm which is a bit under 1 inch. However, with celica studs you need 25mm to clear it. So calculate that into your offset.


Stretched tires are just like they sound. You take a narrower tire and make it fit some thing wider. For instance, you take a 7.5 width tire and mount it to a 9.5 wide wheel.

I was going to submit my car once my exhaust is finished and I am fully happy with my stance. So hopefully it will be on there shortly.

I'm sorry, but I just don't get this HellaFlush craze...Harold, your stance and wheel fitment is pretty much perfect (even though I know you'll disagree). All I see on that site is stretched tires, hella camber, and just generally cars that look like...ass. Seriously.

laugh.gif Thanks for the complement. biggrin.gif It is just boredom for me. After I see it for a while I want to change it up, unfortunately I do not have the money to buy a new set of wheels so I am stuck tinkering with what I have.

The other problem is my megans have now been lowered to their max setting frown.gif I need a 35 or 40 series tire now if I want it to go lower.

You're welcome, but I'm taking that back unless you show up to the meet. Screw lacrosse.

I can imagine that though, even I get a little bored unless I do something new (and I've done relatively little).

okay so i decided not to go with 19" rims and found a great deal on some 18" x 8 1/2" Enkei EV5 wheels with what i believe is a 35 offset (stamp is on the inside of the hub, a 35 inside a circle)...what will i need for a flush look? will i need spacers and what tires should i get? my car is lowered...THANKS in advanced.

You'll need an 8mm spacer up front to bring the front offset to +27 and a 25mm spacer in the rear to bring the rear offset to +10.

Well his PM to me said the wheels are 114 and 120. So he needs an adapter and min spacer for that is 25mm. So he is going to poke a bit up front, nothing -camber cant fix.

That is going to be a LOT of poke up front, camber would need to be -4

biggrin.gif That is where I am headed right now. Ordering new front spacers to get me some poke. My rears are perfect, but negative camber up front leaves my wheels looking sunken.

Flush is +27. With a 20mm lug adapter on the front you'll be 12mm PAST flush. Either you'll need to run stretched tires on the front or some SERIOUS camber. Those wheels will sit 1/2" outside of your fender with that configuration.
