UrQ Tire/Wheel Combo SUMMARY-3

This is the working list so far. I'm soliciting the help of anyone
else who has a later model UrQ with the factory rolled fenders
to round out the list. Please let me know what wheels and tires
you are using, including offset. Thanks.

The following tire and wheel sizes are purported to work with 
non-flared rear fenders and a lowered suspension
(Eibachs/H&R, etc) unless noted.


15x6 ET45 - 205/60-15 Stock size, it damn well better fit. 
15x6 ET45 - 215/60-15 Rubs (J. Hemmerlin)

15x7 ET45 - 205/60-15 Stock, optional

15x8 ET24 - 205/50-15 Fits for track use (J. Karasaki)
15x8 ET24 - 215/15-15 Fits with rolled fenders, rubs badly
without rolled fenders (common knowledge)


16x7 ET30 - 205/50-16 Rubs under Heavy Loading/Heavy
Cornering (HL/HC)(J. Carpenter)
16x7 ET37 - 205/55-16 OK (B. Howell)
16x7 ET45 - 225/50-16 Rubs under HL/HC (F. Smith)
16x7 ET45 - 205/50-16 OK (B. Howell)

16x7.5 ET35 - 225/45-16 OK (F. Smith)
16x7.5 ET35 - 215/45-16 OK (B. Howell)
16x7.5 ET35 - 225/60-16 OK? (F. Smith)
16x7.5 ET35 - 225/50-16 (Front) 205/55-16 (Rear) OK (B.

16x8 ET34 - 225/45-16 OK may v. occ. Rub under HL/HC) (G.
16x8 ET35 - 225/45-16 OK (J. Karasaki, G. Lawton)
16x8 ET35 - 225/50-16 Rubs under HL/HC (J. Hemmerlin)


17x8 ET33 - 215/45-17 OK (J.Goggin) Rolled rear fenders.
17x8 ET35 - 235/40-17 (Front) 215/45-17 (Rear) OK (B. Howell)


Don't go there without help.

>From this compilation there are some notables. 16x7.5 ET35
w/ 225/45-16, 16x8 ET35 w/225/45-16, or for the slightly more
budget minded 16x7 ET37 w/ 205/55-16. Interesting combo is
the Ben Howell suggestion of different sizes front and rear with
the 16x7.5 ET35 wheel. HTH,
