I haven't seen this link posted before (though I didn't bother to go through the entire thread).  anyway, good reference from the Datsun guys to wheels with a 4x114.3/4x4.5" both pattern and about the right offset.  Just scroll down until you start seeing pictures

I've never even heard of a Sapporo (thought that was a  beer?), but now I want to see if they'll fit over my Cressi brakes

That's a YUGE width. Especially the offset. Plan on a wide body?

lol i figured :heh: and possibly i dont know haha so i found these wheels right:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/JDM-Riverge-Style-14-AE86-Datsun-ta22-pcd114-3-wheels-240z-z31-ssr-equip-03-01-/162461351349?hash=item25d3737db5:g:XykAAOSwHptY95-2&vxp=mtr

I fell in love with these wheels, but like you said. ITS HUGE. Ive been looking at some longchamps or some equips. So im guessing i should just take that route.......but on the other hand these are pretty sick. Definitely has a OG Jdm racing look in my opinion.

Those wheels are rad. But are also 14". So harder to get performance tires for. I've been debating whether it's even economically better to run 14's anymore since the tires cost more than 15" tires. In the long run , 15's are better since you'll get tires for way cheaper and have a better selection.

This is precisely why I'm looking at getting 15" Watanabe wheels now instead of running the 14" Appliance Mesh I have right now.

I've used this site for a while, and the UI may not be modern and nice, but I do like the rim cross-section view they give you.

I’m going to have to play with this https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp, as I think I’ll have to go to a 16” on the wagon to get anything close to adecent size tire to even come close to enough traction for The Sleigh!

would 14x9 with -13 offset be too much? or would it fit

a 9" wheel will actually measure 10" from the outsides of the beads. -13 offset (i assume this would indicate 13mm) if I'm correct about this that would convert to 0.51". Meaning that wheel would have a 4.49" backspace.

So that means... Yes, as far as backspacing it will fit (the biggest problem finding wheels for the ra64's and ra65's)

from what I've read on the wheel fitment forum, the stock gts rims have a 4.625" backspace. Being 7" wide (actual 8" from outside of beads).

so... the wheel your looking at would stick out (outside lip of rim) 1.865" more than a factory gts alloy wheel.

will the width interfere with fenders? Grab a stock alloy and a measuring tape and figure that out in regards to your suspension height etc.

Now you can start playing with tire combos as well as tire stretching if you're really looking to play the "fittment" game.

If I made any mistakes somebody please correct me. I've always understood tire dimensions. I've been learning more about offsets, tire stretching etc. because I've got a 15 year old son thats in the process of slamming, tucking, cambering/ tire stretching his daily driven 92 integra, currently on 15x9" xxr 002's on a vehicle that the factory mudflaps sit about 1/8" off the ground. (not really my bag/style, but that's my boy, and I'll do my best to help him build that weird shit he wants)
