Found a wheel and tire package I'd like to pick up. It a unique and rare car so there's no info out there hence the thread & getting no responses from Vortex.

1) I do know 15x8's will clear everything
2) There are supposdly hub rings made that will fit
3) I want ~flush or a semi-oem look (no poke!)

The package I want is:

4) 15x8, 4x100, 73.1 bore, ET25 with 195/45/15 tires

The cars stock #'s are:

5) 13x5.5 (or 5"), 4x100, 57.1 bore, ET45, 12x1.5b lugs


So how would these sit? Would this package be close or way way off? Maybe need spacers? Thanks!

You'd lose 12mm clearance on the inner, and it would stick out 52mm more. Or roughly 2 inches.

So it depends on how much space you're working with and then of course what tire sizes you go with.

So 2" more from what, the face of the oem wheels, wouldn't that depend of the design or go 2" off the lip of the stocks?

Not a rocco.

Edit: Tires are 195/45/15

It's very very rare. I'll release a thread soon & doing a mini build....it has....B5 relations. However the wheel package has to be resolved before I make this next move.

Isn't this the other way? I'd lose 52mm on the inside and would stick out 12mm more?

If it is a mk1 it would be a bit aggressive especially with the 195s. On a mk2 it would be fine.

You don't even know what vehicle it's on.

Could be super aggressive on the mystery car and obviously not on others.

Lol, I'm going crazy, what do you guys mean by aggressive?

Since there are no examples in the wild, or anywhere, how do I figure this out? Do I remove the oem wheel and measure outwards from the hub mating surface to the fender edge? If so, with my wheel package how far from the hub would I measure out?

I'm not so much worried that they wouldn't reach out to the fender, as spacers can be used, but you can't do anything about poke and be stuck with wheels I can't use or ship back.
