Enkei Compe Wheels
« on: Aug 21, 2019, 03:40:33 pm »
Does anyone have any experience with these? I'm looking to do a 15X7 or 16X7 so I can mount some performance tires for autocross. I've heard good and bad things about these wheels but does anyone have some experience with them or with fitment issues?

Here's the 83 in my driveway. Before all the mods begin.

15x7" is a great size, you can get some 200tw 205/50's mounted up and have lots of fun. I personally run 15x7" +0mm Konig Rewinds on my non-flared GT, which are somewhat similar to the Compe's.



The issue with the wheels in the link is that the offset is way too high. +25mm will tuck way too much into to fenders and look horrible / rub on everything. Check out blueberry muffin's build thread, he threw on some 15x9 -5mm wheels and they fit great on fender flared Dragons.

If you're lowering like twotone, those 15 inchers look pretty good... if you're keeping the stock ride height, then 16" will also work.
Check out the tire size comparator and also see which sizes have performance options https://tiresize.com/comparison/

Here's a picture of my 83gt-s with 225/50/16s admittedly with tons of body roll going on. The wheels are 16x8" with 0 offset.

I do plan on going the coil-over route so lowering is a possibility but I would like to get a much decent rubber on the road as I can. This is primarily going to be a track/autox car for me instead of a daily.

I've been looking at these for rubber:

I'm still undecided if I should just by some diamond racing wheels instead and save myself some weight or keep it all JDM looking.

That calculator is awesome btw, thanks for the link.
