Wheel size

Post by redroadster68 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 3:58 pm

I know there are lots of past threads on this but quick question. Rota 15x7 ,114.3. 12mm offset. Running 195x15x50 Dunlop’s . Would I need any mods? Spacers? Or just bolt on ?

Just bolt-on! Make sure you specify "large center caps for Datsun Roadster", if you plan to run center caps.

What year is your car? Won't those wheels stick out past the front fenders on a 67 and earlier car?

They should fit fine, but every car is different and that's the max offset on the rear. +18 might be better on the rear....front should be no problem.
