    I need some advice from those who have experimented. I'm trying to get a light weight pair of rims for the rear on the widest tire I can get in there. I'm not sure on what offset and size combined with tire width, size and height I can go with. I currently run a 275/35/18 Riken Raptors, on some heavy 18' x 9.5" Advanti rims . I'm not sure on my offset in the back, but I do know I have some spacers back there as well. I get slight rub on dips. I have been told before that 17" ARC 8's are pretty light. Mayeb thats a start.

    I'd be interested in the 15" conversion but I haven't found much info on it. Does anyone know of a DIY thread I could take a look to see if its something I could entertain?

    I run 17x10.5 et31 Forgestar F14 (yea, I know, 'crack city bitch, crack crack city bitch') 275/40/17 Mickey ET streets on the rear. Pre LCI e92, rolled fenders.

    Ended up doing the same in front. 17x9 et31 but with Mickey Comps.

    They've held up very well to 750wtq

    We sell the weld rts 15x10 7.5" BS. Will clear a 275/50-15, but can't be slammed and may need a kiss on the quarter panel depending on ride height and spring weight.

    I have 275/60-15 pro radials on my car and you do have room to run them, but no room to get the camber close to zero nor any room to squat without fender and inner fender work.

    We also sell a rear drag double adjustable shock kit for the e-series.

    Hope that helps

    Wow, awesome. Is it not on the website? Desperately need rebound adjustability. Car is able to squat the way I want but then is rebounding too quickly and breaking loose.
    Also is there an offset you recommend for 15" rim with your rear brake kit?

    Andy I would need the brake kit from you guys as well right? How does it affect the parking break if at all?

    I may have to copy that setup. But in 17 they only go 10inch you said yours is 10.5?

    I'll put them up on the website tonight. They are a Strange Engineering double adjustable drag shock that I mod the top and make brackets for the bottom to fit the 135/335.

    We use a 7.5 backspace. Depending on tire you can run it straight or will a small spacer (5-10mm).


    Yes, our small brake kit is needed to run 15s. There is no change to the park brake... Complete pnp kit.

    Get some light weight springs, rims AND tires for the front and throw that Ad-e kit on the rear is the set up for DR.
    Day to day duty I'd grab some 18" Volks. Expensive but they are stupid light. Could probably find a good used set. I run a ET25 19X10 on 275/30 -1.8 camber. Can dial that in closer to zero depending on what tire brand I'm running.
