    Default Wheels help!

    Hello everyone! I recently got defected for my regamasters (i think the specs were 17x8.5 +35 (front) and 17x9 +35 (rear)) and im looking for wheels that will clear the brembos and wont have any poke. Do you guys have any suggestions? I've looked through the wheel fitment guide on this forum but half the photos dont work anymore :/

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    What car do you have? Guessing a DC5R. Do you have the full JDM hub/LCA/calipers, or just the calipers using the S2000 disc on the factory Australian DC5R knuckle? If you're using the JDM hubs, then getting wheels that clear shouldn't be difficult as the OE 17x7+60 offset wheels don't really have that much brake clearance to start with.

    Basically any moderately sized TE37, SSR Type C, CE28, RPF1 up to 8.5" wide should clear the brakes no issue with the JDM knuckle. If you go with a 1 piece Japanese circuit oriented wheel you should have no issues.
