Hey Hey!!

I'm planing on ordering a set of Volk TE37 Rays Engineering Light Weight wheels, form the states and I wanna make sure I get the right Offset for my car.

In have a 1993 Lancer Mivec. Now I Know that the PCD 100x4 and I think the Offset is 40, but i've been told by one of my mates that it could be 42.

Also, I have a choice of whether to get 15"x7.5" or 15"x 8".
Which do I go for??? I presume the 7.5" or 8" is the width but what is that in mm?? At the moment I have a set of 15" wheels on my car and they have a 205/50/R15 on them but originally had a 195/50/R15. What do I go for?? If I get the 8" will I still be able to put a 195 tyre on them???

This really important to me coz if I get it wrong tis gonna cost me a fortune to send them back to states.

As well, if anyone knows of anywhere cheaper let me know.
Thanks,
MARK

I got 15x7 and it only just clears the guards with 205s. Anywhere between 38 and 42 fill fit fine (thats only 4mm difference). I don't think a 8" wide wheel will fit under the guard and may also hit the suspension.

Very very expensive (but very good) wheels. How much will frieght be from the US? I would have thought it would cheaper to get them from japan.

Thanks for all the replies. I know I ask a lotta questions, but sure it has to be done right.

The quote on the freight was about $500 dollars and I can't seem to find them anywhere in Japan even though they are manufacturered there!!!
But sure with the Euro being much stronger than the dollar they work out alright.

I love the look of them as well, everyone says i'm mad but sure f**k it you only live once!!

If you know of anywhere else I can get'em let me know.

Thanks again for the help.

yeah great wheels definately and i agree, u only live once and u cant take your money with u! :lol: the govt most likely end up with it :twisted:

i would think 8" is far too big. and stretching 195's across them would be a mission. it'd be like drift styles :lol:

All I gotta do is get some tyres!!

Lucky or what!!??!!

I'll pop up all the details as soon as she's finished and hopefully i'll be able to claim to have the quickest n/a Mivec in Ireland when i'm finished!!

I assume you've already found this out but just incase, 1" = 25.4mm so 8" = ~203mm
