First of all. "second gen section"

We know it's an RX7 from 86-91ish.

And "86 S4".. That's like saying "I have a Chevy Chevrolet"

Not being a Dick, just lettin you know we're all pretty much up to speed on years/models here. And the ones who aren't... Well, you probably wouldn't want advice from them anyways hahaha


If I were you, id start with xxr. Real cheap, and have plenty of wheels that fit the fc very well.

Look into the xxr 002. They are 16x8's so they're pretty wide compared to stock. And 16" tires are pretty cheap, and readily available.

If you want a more aggressive fit, go for some varrstoens, plenty of 17" wheels in 5x114.3.. The 2.2.1's in 17x9 +20ish seem to be popular, and very easy to fit.

The xxr's, you can get for like $350

The varrstoens will run a little more. Around twice the price.

But there is plenty of wheels in between. Those just seem to be the go to starter wheels.

Anything 17 inch fits perfectly on the FC.

I'm running 17x8.5 in the front and 17x9.5 in the rear and get compliments all the time. Lots of good grip for cornering too. (Depending on tires obviously)
