What Wheels Fit My R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R?


BBS LM Wheels . 18 x 10 + 20 offset. 
Now that we are seeing more and more legally imported, over 25 year old JDM Nissan Skyline GT-R in the US, there are lots of questions.   One of the more common questions is : What wheels fit?  What will these wheels look like? What is the widest wheel that will fit? What is the most aggressive fit?


Volk TE37SL 18 x 9.5 +22


First question -  What do you do with your car? 

Is it a daily driver? Is it a weekend car? Is it a car you use at the drag strip? Do you use it on the road course?

Second question - What brakes are you running?

Brakes make a big difference in what wheel and tire will clear and fit.

Third question - What compromises are you willing to make? 

Everything is a compromise, which are you willing to make for look vs performance.
