Hello first post, i did try to be a good boy and search but could not find the correct answer....

I have fallen in love with some BBS RS wheels on a VAG forum, the PCD is ok 114.3 x 4 and centre bore i can have machined to fit/ adaptors made up.

Front are 16 x 8.5 et 25
Rears are 16 x 9 et 12

Depending on tyre are these too wide for my 260z? It's a 2+2 with standard arches and suspension.

Appreciate any help in advance.

I have 16 x 8 et 10 wheels, with standard albeit lowered suspension and arches, and the wheel rim hit the lower spring platform, so i had to use a 10mm spacer to effectively give et 0!

The spec of the above wheels will defo not work with a standard setup, even the guys running coil overs, i think would struggle with et25 on the front, the rear you would likely get away with if they were 8j et12, my 8j et 10 had clearance on the back but i still opted to use a 5mm spacer. And there's no guarantee they wont rub on the arches either, especially if they have had repair work in the past!

Triple check they are 4x114.3
The centre bore should be ok but as you say it can be machined

The wheels can be made to fit with a 10-15mm spacer for fronts to push them out closer to arches. Rears should be ok.

Alot is dependant on tyre choice and future ride height.

Thank you guys!

I think the current bore is 68mm so I’ll get machined to 73.1. The PCD is definitely 114.3 so it seems if there is a will there is a way! Albeit with spacers and faffing around with the arches possibly.

I think I will try 195/45/16 tyres if not too much of a stretch?
