Whats The Biggest Paseo Alloy Wheel Size


Recommended Posts


you could probably stick 18s under the arches but by doing so, i would hazard a guess to say that you will seriously hamper the handling of the car by doing so...

you would probably be tram lining eveywhere on 18s, unless they do a 205 profile on em? i thought the smallest foot print would be 215s on 18 inchers?

yeh gd point. it will be + look slightly higher but the fact that it fills the arches more will balance this out.

next step after alloys is lowering springs or coilvers! I'll be getting Spax as people have recommended them as being the best.

- Best Ride!

- No rubbing!

Sorted! :thumbsup:

yeh check this site out:

http://www.grmotorsports.com/plustest.html

they tested out alloys from 15" to 17" with dunlops to see how it affects the car. if u cant be bothered to read it all basically stock (civic) 14s suck, 15s improve handling and keep acceleration, 16's and 17's had the same results! -greater improved handling but decreased accel'.

Conclusion:

- Get 15s for fast acceleration and comfortable ride

- Get 17s for handling, looks and best track times

- Get 16s for a comprimise but suggested to go for 15 or 17

OK here is the score, you can fit 17 inch alloys with a 205 tire and a 40 mm drop with out any mods, you can put 18 if they are 205 on with a 40 mm drop if you roll the arches which any good body shop will do for you for about £20 an arch and if you want 19's on then you will need some arch work to make them fit,

if you put 17's on with a 205, 40 tyre then you will have the same rolling circumference as you do with the standard wheels, there for your car will not be any higher from the ground, (this is be coz even though the wheel is bigger the tire is thinner) the same goes for 18's with 205, 35 tires

Do Spax make a kit for the Paseo?

If they do it should fit the starlet right?
