I need to know what is the largest size wheels that I can put in my 77 280Z. The car will have new Eibach 1 drop springs. I was looking at using 225-50-16 on all corners or perhaps slightly larger un the rear if it was possible. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank everyone.

Yes, that size will work fine. You may even be able to go a little larger, but beware of offset and the fact that the inside of the tire or rim may hit your springs.

The offset should be about 3-1/2 inches from the inside of the wheel. Thus, if you buy a 7 wheel it should be set up for zero offset.

Look in the archives, too. There are lots of posts on theis subjuect.

Good luck

Good job on reffering someone to the archives. If a few more of us(myself included) would remeber to remind poeple to check them, and check them ourselves, we may eliminate a few of the repeating posts. Keep up the good work.
