You shouldn’t have any problems unless your springs are beginning to sag. What is the tire width on the rim? If I can remember right I’m around 8.4” on a 7” wheel. Do they fit at all, or is it when the front springs compress the tires hit?
I’m running BF Goodrich g-force T/A KDW 205/50ZR15 without any problems on stock springs, I just had to take the studs out and switch them over to bolts. I can take some pics behind the tire so you can see how mine are clear the spring.

hahaha spring sag?????
but he cant get the wheel near the hub man.......
doesnt matter which spring is used with certain wheels.....
bet ya if he takes the whole spring off the strut the wheel wouldnt fit
the OFFSET is wrong!!!!!!
Im assuming it would be the same but in Australia the 1st gen cars with 4/110 stud pattern have the low offset +20
and cars with the 4/114.3 stud have the high +35
we call 1st gens S1, S2, S3, rather than sa fb etc
S1 plastic cap steel bumpers, drum rears and 4x110 stud
S2 wrap-around plastic bumpers, rear discs, power windows 4x110 stud
S3 bigger brakes F&R & brake vent slits in front air dam under bumper, thicker/longer axles, 4x114.3 stud
my car is 4x110eg low offset
I have 15x7 (+10) fronts 195/50/15
and 15x8 (+5ish) rears 205/50/15....ill confirm when i get access to my wheels
perfect fitment, low as, no scrape, couldnt get closer to gaurds without scrape
get the highest offset wheel u can at the required width
slowly add washers to stack the wheel out to where u want it
measure the amount of washers and take this from offset
eg 15x7(+40) +20mm of washers stacked on hub
makes it a 15x7 (+20)
check the stamping on the back of your wheel
something very fishy here.....
if u put low offset wheels on a car that needs high offset they will stick out the gaurds......
If u put high offset wheels on a low offset car they sit way under the car and foul on the suspension
since you dont have wheels sticking out the side of your car,
that means the supplied wheels are too high offset......
but +20 isnt high its low, so somethings wrong
maybe they supplied wrong offset by mistake???
wrong wheels in boxes????who knows???
+40 wheels definately fit with approx 1in spacer(20-25mm)
mate bought a set of 17x7(+40) wheels off ebay from a 4/114.3 Rx7
when they arrived they didnt fit...he wasnt aware of the stud pattern offset issue we added 25mm hub adapters which runs the wheels at +15 and they corrected the stud pattern to 4x110 problem solved!!!!
now im tired of typin hahahaha
am I the only one who understands.......?????
I know were all tryin to help here but....
how many hundreds of sets of wheels have you guys sold/fitted on cars????
how many hundrerds of sets of custom wheels with crazy custom offsets have you guys ordered/sold/fitted....
how many thousands of times have you fixed/sorted out stuff ups with wheels fitting or not fitting?????
I have done so many I lost count....10+years worth of crap like this
gotta luv the pics of those rusty struts!!!!!!!!!
and its great to see pics of more rewinds fitting with no problem.??
looks really nice man, obviously you have the right offset wheels for your car!!!!
These wheels only come in specific lug patterns and offsets. Based on what I have seen available for sale these combinations are:
4x110mm pattern with +20mm offset
4x114.3 pattern with +0mm offset
4x100mm pattern with +40mm offset
I would hazard a guess that the wheel you have are +40mm offset and they have a 4x100mm pattern.
I know you are saying that the wheels will not touch the hub but have you also verified that the lug pattern on the wheel matches the pattern on your rotor? This would be an easy thing to miss if you are trying to attach the wheel with lug bolts. Because, I guessing that you haven't attempted that yet.
If I am right these wheels won't fit your car for several reasons.
DOH! I just replied to 4 yr old thread! Geez...
