There is so little information available as to which wheels will fit of S15s, which offset and sizes work and which suspension they work with. I'm hoping this thread will change that and serve as a sort of S15 wheel database.

OK, to start with, here's the list of known wheels and offsets which are supposed to fit fine. All of these are with stock suspension.

16 6.5 +45 Stock
16 7 +29 Recommended by Taka Kaira
16 7 +33 Front Recommended by Rays/Nismo
16 7 +35 Recommended by Work
16 8 +38 Recommended by Taka Kaira

everyone with spacers, do you have extended studs or still running standard ones with no problems?
