I'm looking at getting some XXR 522 that are 16 x 8. They have a +0 offset with 5.4 for backspacing. I know the spyder isn't ment to run 0 offset but I like the low offset look. My question is, what would i need to do to make them work properly?

Can't remember what XXR's these are... I think 16x8 or 16x9 +0. Little bit of poke.

Those don't look like they stick our too far. They look like 16x8's and I can't figure out the model number either but I think it looks good. That is almost the look i'm going for so i'm going to stick with the 16x8's. Like i said before, I like the low offset with a stance look.

This is about what I want. I'm not going to stretch the tires but I do plan on adding a little extra negative camber. Was thinking about -.5 more on the front and -1 on the back. I know i'm going to get made fun of for it but I have seen some sick looking cars that have wheels that are a little bit too wide with some extra negative camber and I think it looks bad ass like these cars.

So no stretch and no camber, but crazy low offset... this is your goal?


IMO, if your going to do something don't half ass it, go all the way or don't go at all.

If your serious, get to reading all 24 parts, roughly 2400 posts

OP you really need to start reading more and understand physically the dimensions of that stance look you want.

You will need a TON of camber to make 8in wide 0 offset wheels WITH non stretched tires work on this car.

Funny you say you want the stanced look but don't want to stretch tires. Like the other guy said do it all the way or dont do it at all. It seems like your confused on what you like vs. what people are telling you not to do.

My advice stop looking at those pics. :lol:

That is not my goal, That is way too much and looks like crap. Cars like these have wider wheels with camber and they are on magazine covers and used for displays all over.

I would like to do it to my spyder. I have yet to see a spyder that is done this way. Its new to me so I'm not going to get it right the first time but I will get it to look right and when I do if you don't like it then thats you. But I know plenty of people that asked me if I was going to do it and would like to see it done on a spyder.

All of those cars you posted have tons of camber (over -3.5 atleast) and very stretched tires. There have been several "stanced" spyders you just have to search. Actually my first search found a spyder with 15x8 0 offset wheels and it looks really similar to the car I posted.

Lol this place is horrible for fitment help, don't ask people what fits because no one of here either knows or is willing to help

What you need is a 16x8 +25 an a 195/45 tire, coilovers for the drop, a good roll on the fender sand maybe a 5mm spacer on the rear to bring it flush

And for the record what you want isn't "stanced" (gah I fkn hate that word) youre looking for an aggressive fitment, mild stretch, mild camber and lower it down to the tops of the tires

Good luck bud! PS who's spyder is the black on black one? I want to see more of it

Its not that I don't want to help, its that OP has no clue about how to go and do this correctly. So offering any specs would be pointless and would probably hurt him in learning about whats needed.

And there were other cars on here previously. Search.

Just wanted to chime in here with some personal experience to help you out. First of all, don't do the 16x8 with 0+ offset. It's gonna look bad. I know what you're looking for and that size isn't what you want. Don't do anything less than +20 offset (I'd recommend at least 25) or else you're gonna have major poke, and not the kind you want. When I was first contemplating doing this I went to two good friends of mine who are into the "stance" scene. Both have perfectly flush cars (350z/sti) and I trust them as they've spent a lot of time researching this kind of stuff.

If you're looking for wheels that will give you a good look like that I'd recommend rota grid offroads, I believe they come in 16x8 +20 and they look great. There's a member on here named Pomidified (or something like that, it's been too long) that has them and I talked to him about his. On the forums here he got good comments even from tough critics. You're gonna have to shave just a tad bit off your brake caliper to make them fit. If you're not comfortable doing that get something else.

If you're wondering what I decided on, I gave up. I realized I rather drive my car the way it was meant to be driven instead of having to worry about speed bumps and bad roads. You're gonna have to get coil overs and some good suspension mods to make sure your car is as "safe" and "reliable" as possible with a cambered and lowered set up. You're also going to have to roll, possibly pull, your fenders and probably remove the fender liners in the front (haven't confirmed this yet, but I'd suspect it). I can only see this being worth it on a show car or on a widebody (both which implies you have money to throw at it).

Just some things to think about from the research I've done in the past. If you're looking for more info I'd recommend you ask forums like stancenation, hellaflush, simplyclean, etc. etc. Those guys will probably more knowledgeable about propert fitment than the guys on here just because most of the guys here enjoy driving their cars the way Toyota made it. Also, if this is your daily driver it's gonna be tough.

The black car I posted rubs on the fenders. He ended up wearing through the back tires and blowing them out. I think he's installed crash bolts and added camber since then. Those were 225's in the back too - a little wide for flush (but perfect on my 16x8 +38 RPF-1's with 1.5 degrees camber).

Just don't do this:

Here is mine with 15x7 +25 front and 15x8+25 rear on 195/205 setup, rear has some slight stretch and both poke slightly at oem camber settings.



I don't see 16x8 +0 looking at all like you envision it to.
