I just got some Motegi Racing Traklite's in 16x6.5 ET+45. (They are for my 2003 ZX3 SVT) i'm not sure they will fit my brakes or fenders (with a 1.5" drop) running 205/50 R16's. :dunno:

don't want to mount the tires till i ask this forum, because then i couldn't return the rims. these wheels are forged and weigh (by my good scale) 12.4lbs.

my problem other than fitment is that Motegi doesn't even LIST a 16x6.5 in 4x4.25". i was told they were 16x7's which i was planning to run 225/50 R16's :mad:

HELP

16 inch wheels shouldn't have any issues with brake clearance on the SVT Foci. Now, when coming down another inch to the 15 inch, there could be problems pending on wheel.

I honestly don't see 205/50/16's rubbing on the fenders with that much of a drop. 215/45/16's shouldn't rub at all. I'm fixing to drop mine about the same amount, and I'm daily driving 17 EAP's. So we will see when I get my suspension on the car.
