Thanks, man! I will get some better pictures up eventually. The cell phone pics don't really showcase the wider stance very well.


Quoting citymunky:

Eh, IDK City. I just jumped through hoops to space out the wheels to clear my brakes. I will go 5 lug eventually, but probably not anytime in the near future. I pretty much have all the parts to do the swap, but there's no real reason to swap over currently.

My winter project is going to be dropping the rear subframe to recondition it. I'll seal the underside of the car as well, which is pretty much the only thing I haven't rust proofed. I may swap to 5 lug then if I can get rid of my wheels and find a new set.

Hey, Richard. I ended up going with a set of Ichiba V1 spacers. 10mm front, and 15mm rear. They come with the extended lug studs, which I installed front and rear. As far lugs, I have a set of open ended Muteki SR48 lug nuts installed.

I've put a few hundred miles on the car with the spacers installed, and honestly I can't even tell they are there. I was a little worried about them causing vibrations, but, so far so good. The only thing I've done since I installed the spacers was retorque the lugs.

My brakes fit, and the car's stance looks much better now as well. I'm really happy with them overall.

Mike, my wheels are +39. So, with the spacers they would be +29 front, and +24 rear.

You'll need a lower offset then most guys typically run on the Galant. Since you will be buying new wheels, I'd recommend getting the right wheels, rather than relying on spacers. Buying the correct wheel is definitely the better option of the two. I'd say you would probably be safe with something around +30 or lower. Just keep in mind, the lower you go, the more negative camber and fender clearancing will be required. That's why it's important to find that sweet spot where the wheels just clear the calipers. Spoke design is a big factor too. I saw you mentioned TE37's or Work Meister S1s, both of which would be good designs for clearing big brakes IMO.

It doesn't look like the Evo calipers you have would protrude out nearly as much as the 3KGT calipers I have. If I were you, I'd mock them up and take some measurements just to be sure what offset I needed. You definitely don't want to buy wheels, and then add spacers because you guessed. Make sense?

Truth. Someone very dear to me once called it a "rust bucket"

And Brett's wheels are 7" width. So his +39 won't stick out as far as an 8" wheel with the same offset. Just keep that in mind. With an 8" wheel, if you go below +30 you'll have to start getting a bit crazy with camber or stretch a narrower tire a tad.

Exactly, Mark. If you compare how my wheels look to yours, there's a substantial difference in stance and lip width. No doubt, the 8" wheel looks much better. How is the brake clearance on your car? Those Wilwood calipers must be fairly slim. I'm assuming you have a bit of wiggle room, as you mentioned you'll be shaving the mounting pads on your wheels and reverse mounting the the barrels.

I'm definitely curious to see how that will look

I have tons of room behind the spokes to clear larger calipers. Reverse mounting the faces will add like +12 offset, then removing my spacers and a 5mm shave should give me back 10mm total. So my spokes will be that much closer to the caliper still with more room to spare. It will retain the same stance but with no spacers and with more lip. Hopefully it works out. I get worried shipping such expensive wheels somewhere to have custom work done that might not work out like I hope.

What scaring me is how your saying +30 but EVO X wheels are 8.5 wide and +38. So do you think that at 8.0 wide and +30 offset will clear the EVO X calipers without sticking out too far?

you could probably go look at evolutionM.net at the EVOX forum because there are a billion threads about wheel fitment there, and that would definitely include caliper clearance.

Which place? I have some wheels about to get redone in socal too.

Evo X can run lower offsets than the vr4. Abs the wheel was basically designed to clear those brake calipers. And they aren't 8.5

Negro your are wrong stock X wheels are 8.5" width. (If that's what your referring too)

On my car I run 17x8.5 +30mm offset rears sit flush with the quarter and the fronts poke just a little bit (Maybe 1/4" or less). This is with 255/40/17 tires as well with 1.5 of camber up front and 1.0 in the rear.

We could sit here and guess what offset will work all day long, but each wheel is designed differently. One +30 8.5" wide wheel might fit, where another may not. Some wheel manufactures actually vary spoke design to change offset, where others just vary mounting pad thickness. You'll probably be anywhere from +30 to +40 if I had to guess. But, guessing is pretty dumb when you can mock up the calipers and take some measurements and know for sure what wheels will work, and what wheels won't.

Like I said Mike; mount the calipers, take some measurements and THEN buy a set of wheels. Measure twice, buy once.

...Or buy the wrong wheels on a hunch because some guy on whatever forum said they would fit...and then buy spacers...and then pay someone to install them...and then hope you don't have clearance issues.

The right option seems pretty apparent here

I am not going with them. Just from the simple fact that I know 3 or 4 people who have had horrible issues with them. Hard to contact Alex at times, incomplete orders/work/parts/ or just overall doing things incorrectly and taking forever to correct the issues. Just letting you know.

Oh and all of this was in the year 2014.
