X7 fitment: pics, tips, advice and all that

Recommended Posts

cuz we all love pics, and the internet sucks without it. figured i'd post pics before i sell the wheels.

 

15x9 +0 fits flush with rear fenders, at this height/camber anyways. 195/50 toyo t1r, so it fit pretty good with the fenders. i did have to shave the hell out of the rear fenders but no rolling or flaring necessary.

 

in the rear, on the inner side it was a real tight clearance with the rear shock. maybe 5-10mm clearance. and thats with a stretch tire and a oem style shock (not a spring over the shock).

What exactly do you mean by shaving the fenders? Did you cut both the inner and outer fender or just outer?

K so here's the other end of the spectrum. .

Fr=17x9+14 215/45-17

Rr=17x9+18 215/45-17

 

X8 front susp (wider by 25mm) Full custom coilover front and rear. .That ride height is 1inch from ALL THE WAY UP.. Much modification in the rear to accomodate ultra low ride height, frame notched, swaybar relocated, etc.

 

Fenders cut and pulled but but stock shape. basically got rid of the bodyline ON the fender. . . Massive work on inners to clear at full lock and compression. . Inners MUST be hammered to clear rear wheels. . BARELY clears at full compression in the rear. .

the wheels i have right now are really from my z which i want to get back on the road, the size is 16x9f -16 and 16x9.5r -16, i want to order some wheels and i was going to get 16x10r and16x9f, undecided on offsets so far perhaps zero rear and -16 front...but i kinda want 16x10f and 16x12r now...with probable offsets around zero front and rear , i still have to do some measuring to make sure suspension components are not in the way...but my biggest question is.. what size tire should i go with , right now i have 205-50-16f and 205-55-16r i would probably still run 205-50 front but rear ??? any and all input is appreciated regarding tire sizes , offsets and height....

 

oh they're going on this, solid rear axle means no rear camber to worry about. i may not be lowering too much more but i might just for aesthetics...keep in mind fenders are not rolled outward at all.
