Concave Wheels ??

Hi guys, i found a decent set for 700euro which is :

9x5 18inch front
10x5 18 inch rear

They are Japan Racing jr11.

I was wondering if this will fitt, i know the 9x5 will fitt in the front, but i was wondering about the 10x5 inch wide in the rear.

I need to mention i'm using wheel centric hub spacers 30mm rear and 25mm front. ( fender roll must be a must i guess )

I don't wanna spend 700euro for nothing, that's why i'm asking, i found them online second hand and the guy won't accept returns.

Thank you fellows.

What is your suspension setup? Struts and springs? Coilovers? How much of a drop? Are your fenders rolled? Here is a neat tool I found that may help. http://www.willtheyfit.com/

Original offset on the wheels. As well and size tire you plan on running

I'm going to go out on a limb and say they won't fit. The biggest I have seen with a wider wheel and low offset is 17x9 with +22 offset and that was on Tein coilovers with pulled and rolled fenders front and back with no spacers

But i'll be using Ebay Universal Fender Flares to adapt and also the spacers... they will not fitt even like this ?

I know Erock Probe GT was running back in the days 18x9.5 rear and 18x8.5 front.

(( such a dissapointment, cuz i really like this set...

What if i go 18x9.5 all arround ? Will this fitt ? Considering the rims will be mounted with the spacers on...

Thank you

Why do you want to still run spacers? If you going to get a set of rims why not get them with the proper offset so you don't have run spacers?

Side note what look are you going for? Hellaflush, hellafunctional, mexiflush lol

Aside of how incredibly silly I think it is to run wider rears on a FWD, the fronts should fit no problem with coilovers, a fender roll/pull and maybe a bit of camber depending on your tire size. Rears, I'd say not a frosty chance in hell unless you're willing to really pull and cut fenders.

This is on an MX6 so the fender lines may be slightly different but good for reference:

Guys, i'm going to go for the Rocket Bunny ,, look '' or Libery Walk Performance look on the Probe.

I think i'll be the only one who trying to go for this look on a Probe. I know it will be not fully functional, i'm just going for the ,, look '' of it, not functional, since i'm not use the car for track or race. I just love the Rocket Bunny ,, look '' and Libery Walk Performance and i love the Probe to much to be changing to Nissan and install the rocket bunny.

So, i want to run fiber glass fender flares , with super wide rims, that's why i want to run 10.5 in the back.

I'm not worried about the wheel ET, as i will run Spacers to get the look i want, what i'm worried about is if they will fit inside the car, i don't know how to explain this better cuz i'm romanian. I want to know if they will fitt inside and not hitting my Coilovers or any chassis part inside .

I know i might sound a little bit silly, don't judge me, but i want something different.

I really need your help guys, i really do, this is the only place and the proper place to ask for opinions.
My car is this :



As this car gives me a lot of problems with the engine, i decide to keep it for spares part and swap all the mods on the new one that i just bought it a few week's ago and for which i'm going to ,, rocket bunny'' mod it .

This one is the new that i'm working on, same color like the one that is modified, same year, 1994



I go for this look on a Probe

oh they will fit. But depending on how low you are is the main thing.
If you plan on doing the flares, are you going to be cutting the original fenders underneath? That would allow for fitment and you to be lower.

Thanks for answering my questions ZE Infused and not reply with criticism like other fellows here...

I really don't know if i will be cutting the fenders underneath, as i still don' t buy the rims, i need to be thinking first what would be the correct size of the rims. I just see them tonight , i meet with the guy that sell the rims and 9.5 looks awesomefor the rear, yet 8.5 dosen't look so concave like i was thinkin and also 18inch looks little. So, my only option now is to buy a brand new set. I was taking in consideration Rear : 19inch 9.5 ET22 235/35/R19 and Front : 18inch 9.5 ET 22 225/35.
/R18

Do you think i will be able to fit this into the Probe ? I was swapping the KSport coils from my first Probe to the new one, depending on how the rims will look so i can adjust the height on the coils.

For that look if you going for that low as well you'll have to cut the fenders and possible have a custom suspension or bags. I think if done correctly it can look amazing on a probe. If you want a concave wheel look for a lower offset so you don't have to use the spacers. You may even find a set with a nice lip on it that you like

If you had read the thread I linked you'd see that a 10" wide 22 offset wheel clears the front and rear suspension just fine. If the 10.5" wheel rubs the suspension add a spacer; It will rub the fenders, but you're cutting and flaring anyway.

Sounds like they'll fit just fine. Go forth with that knowledge and get cutting!

You need to get away from the thought of those spacers you have. Best to start with a wheel that fits close, then space if nessicary. Like you said Erock (94pgt94) is the man to look to for your specs. Shaun also has crazy things going on, but he's on bags now so it may be a little tough to compare

Hi mate, i have read and also seen the pictures on the link you have me, but taking in consideration that on that topic there is a Mazda , i think the fenders might be a little bit different from the Probe construction and design, i don't know, i might get wrong... that's why i get confused !

They are the same on the chassis design also ? What fitt in that mazda will fit into Probe also ?

Is impossible to contact with him, i just saw his new rims and they look awesome, yet they don't get out like i want, like i said, i'm going for the rocket bunny with maxed out rims...

Do you guys think that going for 19inch rear and 18inch front would look and run ok ?

After i will put the rims and fenders flares on, i will adjust and do the proper cutting if necessary... i need to think this in every detail, as i dont wanna spend more than 1500euro on rims and fenders flares and then they will not fit or anything else. that's why i'm asking for your opinios here in probetalk, as this is the proper place to answers to my questions. I don't trust in anyone else better than in Probetalk.

I was gonna go with some 18x9 3pc wheels, but I think I am going to settle with some 17s. Mainly because they are cheaper tires are cheaper. And I will be able to run a slightly thicker sidewall and still be just as low.

Filip_pine do you have a facebook?

Mechanically identical underneath.

I can be nearly certain 18x10.5" will not fit without fender modification and possibly 4-6deg negative camber. You will most likely need to cut and flare which is the rocket bunny look anyway. Without flares you're just hellaflish or something.

Dilinr, what you mean by fender modifications, you mean cutting the fenders or cutting inside the fenders ?

As in cutting the actual fender arch back. If you look at the fender flared cars, almost always they cut the arches back so they can fit the wider wheels. The lip of your bolt on arch now becomes your new fender

Hmm, im not saying this would be impossible on the Probe's, but cutting fenders underneath would lead us to modified the bumpers bolts and snaps, as it will let the bumper hang... from what i have seen at least...

EDIT : Just a quick update people, i have been searching here and then and is impossible here in Europe to have that kit Street Legal. There is no company who will be doing that kit Street Legal and they say that my cat will not pass Technical Inspection if i do that bodykit (
Such a big dissapointment for me guys... ****** this Europe s**t i wanna live in the State, if you put a bottle of juice inside your car here it has to be Street Legal, our laws here are a massive bulls**t !!
Especially where i live, in Spain ! Unless you're going to use the car for private roads or track !

I think i'll be going for the stance and hellaflush look instead, will 18x9.5 ET22 will fit without hitting my KSport Coilovers ? The comoany that sell the rims don't allow me to test fitt them and they are 600km away from my town anyway... Before i pay i wanna make sure they will fitt... I probably must roll my fenders i think....
Thanks guys !
