    i wanted to try something diffrent..ive never seen a tc 0 offset wheels yet. but i was thinking of the sportmaxx 002 series wheels with 0 offset. the wheel size is 16x8 with 0 offset so it gunna be one phat lip!any opinons? will this work? would i have to do some major fender rolling? anyone have pics of a tc rollin on 0 offset wheels or any low offest other than the typical +38 etc.

    WILL NOT FIT unles you running a widebody kit.... people put I think 18" wide wheels with a 25-30 offset to get uber flush (corect me if im wrong)

    .... helpful thread...

    hmmm..i know it wont be flush...but i think i can pull it off wit a little fender rolling becaue ive seen hondas! roll the 15x8 0 offsets. ill hae to do more reserach and measurments

    Well you can just put the tC on a 2.5 inch lift and roll with that the 0 offset! hahaha

    Personal opinion.... 2 thumbs down. Unless you are doing a full, REAL, show car it's going to make the car look squatty and dumpy.

    i fit 16x8 0 offset on my 00 integra tucked! haah but i had to cut the fender well and do mad fender rolling im pretty sure i can get these 16x8 to fit nicely on a tc. there only 16s..plus the tc has pretty nice body dimensions.

    do you not realize that integra and tCs are a bit different? look at Zs and other nissans. they can run aggressive as hell spec wheels on stock body which would deteriorate our fenders. unless you plan on running sub-195 tires, running more than -5 camber, pulling and rolling your fenders, and other time consuming mods just to make little xxrs fit, you're just going to have to end up selling them. and when you do try to sell em, gl cause no other 5x100 car would want a setup like that.

    I've seen a tC with 0 offset wheels, they stick out past the fender. They look good in my opinion, I was planning on doing something similar too, but I had a change of heart later on.

    why the hell would you do this?

    lowest i think ive seen is like +28 offset.

    anything lower than that with an 8" wheel and youve got your self something like this:




    thats just idiotic

    my car has 17x8 35 offset. and its pretty flush. at 30 offset im even with the fender. now imagine a wheel poking out 30mm past the fender... ricer looking


    only time a wheel looks good with that low an offset is when you have a truck lifted like this

    I think this topic is one of those: "You either like it or hate it" kinda things.
    • May 06, 2009 6:14:34 pm
    it is a like it or hate it type thing.

    to be flush with the fenders you need

    front- 17x8 +23 offset
    rear- 17x8 +10 offset

    any offset lower than that and your poking, i cannot stand poking on certain cars. The TC being one of them

    maybe just in the front with some drag slicks it would look really tight
