Offset for Wheels to clear Brembos

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi guys, Was wondering if anyone can give me a hand in answering my question. Looking to buy some rims (Advanti Tech X's) With a 20p offset... Will these clear the brembo breaks? as I have heard many things like other 350Z owners cant fit anything over 15p. Any Help would be appreciated 

 

Cheers

There are many many many wheel fitment threads - please use search

I have heard many things like other 350Z owners cant fit anything over 15p.

That's the wrong way around - larger offsets are good (more likely to clear the calipers) - lower offsets are where you can get into trouble

However offset alone does not guarantee wheels will fit over the brembo calipers - the shape and profile of the spokes is important to clear the calipers

I think you are both a little confused.

Lower offsets wheels (wheels closer to outside or poke from guard) will generally give you more brake clearance. However, some high offset wheels (wheels more sunken from outside of guard) will clear too. Hugely depends on the wheel/spoke shape and design.

The factory wheels are 18x8+30 (or close?) and clear Brembo brakes but many aftermarket wheels in those specs will not clear.

I run 19x10+15 and 19x11+15 on my 350Z and they clear by a mile. The same wheel as mine in a 18x8+20 probably wouldn't clear...

You really need to try some wheels on your car....you will find many of the Japanese wheels are made to clear larger brakes (not always though)...

Cheeeeeers
