  • RPF-01 Sizing

    Ive been looking around a little bit for wheels for my stock body s13 coupe (5 lug with stance coils).

    i checked zilvia and a couple other sites.

    is 17x9 +22 RPF01 Front and Rear going to be fine? I dont care if its super flush or anything, will be mainly hpde car. (i want them to be same size wheel and tire front and rear so i can rotate easily)

    vividracing has them for 254 a rim, anyone know any cheaper?

    any thoughts on tire size? i was thinking dunlop star specs 245 or 245 in the lowest profile.

    thanks for any input.

    +22 won't fit in the rear unless you have some over fenders. i have pictures but

      xtimx runs these wheels in the rear of his coupe with 235's. It's rolled a little, but nothing major and certainly not overfenders.

          Run 255/40-17s all around. The rear will fit with a pull. I'm running 17x9 +17 with 255/40-17s in the rear and an S14 rear subframe(10mm wider), so it's more like a 17x9 +12. About a 1.25-1.5" pull and it's fine. Need to add a little more camber on the passenger side, as I was getting a little bit of rubbing at full load in corners.

                Yeah I know plenty of people with the +22 that just pull their fenders to get them to fit. 235s/245s around -1.5 in the rear isnt hard at all. +12 takes a hair over 2. The drifter spec is more like 17x9 -5 with 215 or 225.

                  Here's a pic of 245/40 on a 17x9 +17. I don't remember what the camber was, but not very much (probably 1.5-2 range). It's pulled enough to have plenty of clearance, you don't need to pull nearly that much to have them just barely fit.

                      Hah, I wasn't trying to pile it on.. that was just show how much pull there was and what it looked like.

                        How do you like the 255 on the 9's? I'm running a 245 on my 17x9 +20, but I was thinking that 9.5's at all 4 would be better.

                          They work just fine. The sidewall is just short enough not to move around on the rim a ton like 275/40-17s.

                          This is on NT-05s, something like a 245/40-17 R-Comp is likely to be just as wide as my tires and a bit shorter.
