Post new wheels
hi help pls
im looking to get some new wheels for the car and struggling with sorting out my offsets. the wheels that are on at the moment 6.5j x15's the make is kn but I am unable to find the offset's marked on the wheels.as far as I am able to make out the car is mk2 escort live axle so presume the front is escort hubs I have made some alterasions to the headlights so when I turn the wheels don't rub the light backs but was thinking of gowning down to 14 inch rims to give more clearance at the front between wheels and light's
thanks regards ian

Post Re: new wheels
Ian , due to individual builders and builds being slightly different there is no real STYLUS standard offset , partly of course , because wheel widths chosen vary , so an ET15 on a 6j will be different to a 7j . Hence my explanation of calculating offset in the previous post. The other really important point is ---- don't fit spacers at the front :shock: You can do what you like at the rear . If you want to buy , say , a 7.5j wheel then measure from bolting face to either plumbline or spirit level touching the wheelarch --------- that will be the measurement to subtract from the rim width+tyre bulge , to arrive at the offset :wink:

Why not fit spacers at the front Rob? Are you concerned about leverage on the springs?
I've just got some alloy hubs with oversize bearings that add 10mm each side & I was planning to go to zero offset wheels to get around 25mm extension per side, is that a big no-no then?

hi rob & dave
New wheels now fitted still 15" but tyre's 185/55/15 instead of 195/50/15's fit is much better and wheels on the front fit on the spigots properly now. Clearance in the arches is fine but at it's limit to outer of arch. Here is a link to the photo's https://www.dropbox.com/sh/is7azbn0x615tnf/5IXbVIdD8R
regard's ian

Post Re: new wheels
hello rob
no not done that yet as it was getting a bit cold in garage I was more interested in front wheels not catching inside front on full lock . still have some resetting to do . as well as ride height I need to reset the speedo as well. as the different tyre size alters the speedo by 7mph according to a offset calculater chart whitch is done quite easy on my setup. as for tyre psi I
have been running them 18psi and seams ok is this about right for my car
thanks regards ian
