Wow 10.5 et15 on a 32gtr? I would have thought that would be very unsuitable but your pics look good!

I guess they would require rolling the arches?

I have 9.5 et12 on mine

Yes, the arches have been rolled a little.
They still poke out a bit at the front, but with camber arms they will be just perfect.

I went from 9.5 +12 to 10.0 +18 and now 10.5 +15. Next 11.0 +18? Who knows... LOL

Car has same suspension setup on both sets of wheels. HKS coils, nismo upper links, OEM everything else. I'm not sure on alignment. I'm saying its OEM spec since no camber arms etc. I will try to include many different angle pics so you can get clear idea of fitment and whats best for you.

17x9 +22 Volk TE37 Nankang Ultra Sport NSII 255/40/17

My personal opinion, to small and slightly sunk in. But 100% fine for no body work what so ever to make fit.















Advan RG 18x9.5 +12 265/35/18 AD08R

Required slight fender rolling. Fits PERFECT flush. Same ride height/alignment as above. Could have probably gave it some camber and not need fender roll. Only rubs fender liners on very hard cornering and large sudden dips in the road.


















Next up I will be trying to fit the Omori Factory LMGT4 in 18x10.5 +15 sizes. I guess I will try to use same size tire 265/35/18 AD08R, we'll see how it goes, but I will have suspension arms this time. Fingers crossed lol

Good looking car.

The problem you had regard the tire size and not wheel offset. 265/35 is big for the R32.
I've personally had 18x9.5 +12 and 18x10+18 both with 255/35 tires and never needed to do anything fender/arm wise.
I ran 18x10 +18 with 285/30 tires once and it now has 18x10.5 +15 with 285/30 and it needed front arms otherwise the tires would poke out a couple of millimeters. Good occasion to get me some Ikeya arms and now it's just perfect.

If you keep running 265/35 and decide to lower your car a bit more, the front tires will touch the side skirt inside the fender and consequently they will gradually bend outside. It happened with a few friends running 265/35 and 245/40 on 18 inch wheels.

Yea slight camber I could of kept the fenders stock. I was thinking about going 285/30 AD08R on the 10.5. They are wider but smaller diameter. But I think I will try the 265/35 first lol. If I need a camber arm in rear I have a cusco arm on my s13 that should fit r32. Just going to see what happens.

It's worth noting that a number of members do run 265/35R18 with an offset of 20 without problems. Running a 255 tyre will effectively pull the tyre 'in' 5mm (assuming that the tyre wide is what it says it is....). An offset of 20 would pull the tyre in ~8mm. Inner edge clearance isn't a problem.

My experience of 255 and 265 tyres is that the 265s are actually more than 10mm wider than the 255s. This will of course vary with brand/model. A 'narrow' 265 would be a much easier fit than a 'wide' 265.

Not sure what you wanted to say in the first paragraph.

He has +12 offset which is the same I had once, and we were talking about the clearance with the fenders. Inner isn't a problem in a R32 until you're going 11J with 295 tires.
