I like Nismo LM GT4 wheels.
But they have to be wide enough to have that angle on the spokes. Don't know what width that is though :(
These are available in black which chould suit your yellow S15 very well :)

i think everyone would like a set of those but far too expensive..... :ghey:
Yeah, like 'em alot.
reminds me of the good ol' days when I was searching the auctions for a S15. I bidded on a black grade 5 Spec-R aero with bronze LM GT4s.
it was sold for a couple of ?100 more over my bidding roof though :(

I want either bronze LM GT4 or bronze Volk CE28N. gold colour could be nice to.
But I don't want to sell the SSR's. They look nice to and are very rare.

I am currently looking at these VOLK GT7. 8x18front and 9x18 rear. Do you think +36front and +32rear offset will work ?

the front will be ok but the rear may be tricky, especially if you're going to run 245 or bigger. The guards will also need to be rolled unless you run massive neg camber which is pointless. I run 9's at the rear with a 38 offset, but needed to roll the gaurds in order to run 1.9 neg camber.

There is a slightly cheaper copy of the Nismo LM GT4 wheels available


Still not the cheapest wheels at ?380.00 a pair.

At the minute my favourite wheels are the gramlight 57s-pro



More saving to be done before I can afford!!

A 39 offset a the rear will be fine as the rear brakes are tiny and nearly any design will suit. Bear in mind the S15 brakes (spec R) stick out a bit so some wheel spoke designs won't fit despite having the correct offset. I tried a set of deep dish 18's with a 35 offset and they weren't even close to clearing the brakes. If you do run 39J on the rear, as I mentioned before, you'll still need to roll the guards and get rear camber adjustable arms if you intent to lower your ride and run 235's or bigger. Without the adj rear arms I could run 245's without rolling the guards, but negative 3 degrees camber with 245's doesn't have a much bigger tyre contact patch than the standard 205's with correct camber.
