Default My Wheel Dilemma!

You may remember me posting threads/posts a few months back about choosing Work wheels and wheather they were going to fit on Australian spec Nissan 370Z.

Well I finally got my Work Meister S13P wheels today after a long 4 month wait.
The specs i ordered are:

Front: 19x9.5 +17 T disk
Rear: 19x10.5 +12 R Disk

Tried to have a local shop fit them. Results arn't very welcoming.

The front wheel pokes out 30mm past the guards, which is illegal here.
It also very slightly scrapes the brake caliper.






With it poking out that much, I am sure it will look weird.
Im sure others here have this wheel with this spec on the front and it doesn't poke out that much rite?

Is there anything I can do here to have it fit/look better?

The only thing I can think of is getting wider or flared guards by 30mm.

well youll need 5mm spacers so the wheel isnt touching the caliper if thats happening. You could always buy proper front suspension parts and put it to probably -3 camber or so, which isnt that bad. Make sure to put 245/30 tires on the front as well, as a minimum so you avoid stretch.

At this point, youll need to mount tires and test out what works depending on your ride height. You will need a decent amount of negative camber though, thats for sure but thats not a bad thing...depending on how negative you go obviously

Im sure someone here will give you more specific details or maybe correct me if Im wrong.

Well I really didn't want to touch camber, but if I have to then I guess I will. I don't understand why these specs make the wheel poke out so much. This is what Ravspec reccommended me also.

Isn't negative camber going to effect performance?

Yes in a positive way ( as long as you don't go to far) but once you add spacers to clear the caliper your issue is only going to be worse. I'd contact Ravspec

Your offset is too little at +17.

I run a +42 on the front with a 5 mm spacer to run just under the fender with a 275/35 series tire. I could run it with a 10 mm spacer to be closer to the fender but I prefer a slightly tucked. That way I don't have to run a big negative camber to prevent fender scrub.

Look at what the stock offsets are


But to each its own.

If you don't want to run more camber, yes.

Are you stock height? When you load the suspension they will tuck in a little but with the 5mm spacer they are probably still gonna poke.

Yes I am completly stock on everything atm.

Look at the specs reccommended here:
WORK Meister S13P – 19″ – 370Z/G35/G37 – RavSpec

19x9.5 +17 is the first one!

Now I am already thinking of selling and re-ordering with a different offset.

if you are not planning to do anything suspension wise, you need 32 offset with 9.5 width or higher to stay inside the fender

So if I do suspension work, does that mean I can get the wheel to sit more inwards to the centre?
