    Newbie Action =)

    Ok.. where can I get a blacktop SR20DET?

    j/k I'm not planning on getting one... yet!



    Having just left my comfy Honda world for the land of the S14 I have a few dumb questions.



    What's the ideal wheel offset for let's say a 17x7.5 wheel wearing 225/45R17?



    Would that be wide enough to provide major grip? Or would 245/40/17 tires fit without being overkill?



    Same size on every corner? or is a staggered setup better?

    225/45 on 17*7.5 up front and 245/40 on 17*8.5 comes to mind



    Keep in mind the engine is still stock and from my butt dyno it's not even close to the rated 155hp 160 lbs/ft.



    Oh... Anybody driving on Rota Subzeros? They've been growing onto me but I wouldn't dare be a poser



    Anyways

    Enough of the newbie talk!

    I need info

    As stated in another thread if you don't want yours to look like mine (gold S14) don't buy subzero's lol



    For tire size, you have to tell us what you wanna do with the car, auto-x, drag, lapping etc.. it would help alot for the setup. I know that Halo and I have 225/45/17 and it fits perfectly.. i wouldn't try 245's+ though because it almost rubs inside the way it is..... maybe with wheel spacers though... just think about the fact that you'll slow down your car as well It also depends of wich suspension you are going to put on



    Hope it helps!

    If you are gonna go to all the trouble of buying the wheels, getting the tires ect etc, I say get a bigger rim, with the right offset. Like a 8.5 inch with a 28-32 offset to come out and be flush wit hthe fender. If you go out and buy any old set of 17's with an ff offset of 40+, its gonna be sunken in way past the fender, and won't give you that sweet look you are going for.

    Actually I couldn't care less about looks As long as the wheel isn't heavy and the car handles good, looks are a bonus.



    Suspension-wise I was thinking Tein Type Flex or something close to that.

    Flex is for sissies. Go harder than that. Get HA's or something like that... flex are overpriced. I have felt RS even though they are retarded o nteh spring rate side..d oesn't matter, they are still very streatable... or was it re... or ra... it was RE I think the dual hight adjustable model. not RS. ... lol.

    He doesnt need coilovers.

    KYB agx with Eibach Sportlines will do him fine.

    Type Flex and Type HA use the same spring rate.

    Type RA RE RS all use the same spring rates. Which seems harsh for a car that still gets to be driven in the pothole filled streets of Mtl.



    R type seems like overkill in my case, I still want to retain some confort.



    As much as I liked my H&R Sport OE and KYB AGX on the Civic, I want to try something different. Something that doesn't drop my car that much. Anyways... I got to get tires first



    Enkei RPM2 in 17*8 with a 35 offset shouldn't be that bad
