Was there a reason the person that got them went with 24 offset and spacers for the rear ? Why not get the right offset wheel ?

The price on these is fantastic. Much less expensive than the CCW's. "Call for Availability" though is a bit concerning for the 18x10.5 with 27 mm offset. IIRC, to run 18x10.5 square, the correct offset is 27 for the front and use a 15 or 20 mm spacer in the rear to bring out the rear track. That way, the whole wheel/tire combo can be rotated. Does anyone know if the 5/114.3 bolt pattern works on the GT-R?

So we can run 18*10.5 +27 all around, however front is don't at +27, and rear +27 with 15mm spacers ?

IIRC, this is what Icarus runs with CCW C10 rims. Tires are 305/35/18 I believe.

Is running spacers safe ? Would I need to extend the studs to accommodate the spacers ?

He and I both have the extended ARP studs. The other option is to use spacers that have their own studs, however I like that option much less.

I am looking at running 18x10.5 27mm offset TSW Nurburgrings with 305/30/18 Toyo R888 tires all the way around since I also plan to use this setup for my 93 RX-7 which is my main track car. If I have something that works for both cars, I can just use the wheels and tires on the GTR when I want to take it for a track day.

My GTR is on stock suspension and not lowered. Has anyone tried this setup and will it fit or will I need narrower tires in front?

I recently bought the TSW 18" Nurburgring wheels just for the track from Discount Tire. I went with 285 Nitto NT-01 tires for all four wheels. The fronts fit perfect but I'm not sure a wider tire would fit. There isn't much clearance. The back wheels are slightly more recessed than stock but I prefer to not run with spacers on the track. I'll be using them for the first time later this month.

For anyone that wants to see what this wheel looks like on a GT-R, here is mine. This is with 18 x 10.5 27mm offset all around, no spacers on the rear. I was running Toyo R888s 315/30/18 on the rear and Toyo 295/30/18 on the front. I had no rubbing issues, but the VDC was kicking in because of the diameter difference between tires so I had to race with VDC off. Next time I might switch to 305/30/18 all around, I think the fronts will fit fine. The car is quite low with this setup, I am on stock suspension and would not want to be any lower.

How does it feel? I am torn between 18's or 19's. I want to run 315 and 295 R6's. Will this work with no rubbing?

They felt great, but I will caveat that by saying I am a beginner. I have only autocrossed Miatas and MR2s on Victoracers and V710s and I have only had my GT-R for a few months so this is my first time trying a setup other than the RE070Rs on the stock wheels.

The diameter difference is about 5% smaller and I felt like there was a difference in acceleration because of this. However this setup is too low for me to feel comfortable driving around on the street. I scraped my front and rear diffuser a few times. You cannot tell from the picture, but I think the 295s in front stick out a bit past the fender. I am guessing on this, but because there is a lot of gap there may not be enough suspension travel for the tire to hit the fender. On a taller tire that is 295 or wider you might have issues.

Someone else I know is planning to go to a 19" wheel to get better brake cooling, I am not sure how much truth there is to that. For a track setup 18" are cheaper, lighter, smaller diameter for more acceleration, and there are more tire options for the Toyo R888 and probably other tires as well so that is why I went with 18". For a street setup, you will want a bigger wheel. This wheel also comes in 19x10.5 and 20x10.5 for an inexpensive nice looking wheel.

Also for a square setup, this is a great wheel because 10.5 is probably the widest you want in front. For a staggered setup if you want to run 305 or wider on the rear you will want a wider wheel and this wheel only goes up to 10.5.

I am considering these in 19x10.5. The offset looks like +27 as well. Should this fit ok up front? 15-20mm spacers in the back?

Here are a couple pictures of what the 18x10.5 wheels look like.
Thanks, hard to see the fitment on the front and rear. Got a pic from a ngle look down the side of the car? No matter, I got the 19" and plan to mount them by week's end. I'll post pics once they are on the car.
