FW: Wheels for 4CSQ

I agree. I am using both 205/50's on a 7x15 wheel with a 37mm offset and
215/40's on a 7.5x16 wheel with a 35mm offset on my lowered 4000TQ. And yes,
I had to roll fenders front and rear. 

I also have a set of 7.5x15 with 38mm offset -- this works with a 205/50-15,
but the 225/45-15 Hoosiers I specifically got these rims for do not clear
the tie rod end or strut assembly. Anyone need some used (not by me)
Hoosiers, maybe for an UrQ?

Perhaps Gary means he _hasn't_ had the fenders rolled.

So the consensus for wheel upgrades on the 4kq and CGT is:
205/50's on a 7x15 wheel with a 37mm offset.  Fits on 4kq and a Coupe GT.
The Speedlines that came on the 90 sedans have a 45mm offset and will rub on
the steering arms of a 4kq (and CGT probably). 

215/40's on a 7.5x16 wheel with a 35mm offset.  Fits on an unmodified Coupe

Perhaps Duane can fill us in on fitting 17" rims.  Though I thought his
wheel wells were clearanced?
