Re: Tire size questions.

I also found a set of Rota 15X7's I fell in love with.
But they are +12 offset and I'm worried about clearing suspension.

Re: Tire size questions.

It will work as long as you can find someone to mount them who isn't worried about liability (205's are really only meant for up to 7j wheels according to manufacturers). Lots of people do this but I don't recommend it. Generally speaking 225's are great on an 8j wheel for a nice square profile, bu...

Re: Tire size questions.

I found a set of 15x8 rota's with 0 offset.
This with a 205/50/15?

Re: Tire size questions.

We've seen tires as large as 225/35-18 installed on AE86's. Offsets will much depend on fenders, alignments, and details. That's been stepped up Moto, 265/35/18 now on 10.5s, 255/35/17 up front. Largest I've seen so far, but lots of work done to the car so it's not applicable to 99.9% of the cars o...

Re: Tire size questions.

So I want to lower the car an inch or two with some coil overs.
Do you think the 15X7 with +10 and 205/50/15's will still clear?

Okay. I am either going to run stock fenders or a very slight fender flare. Like maybe a little smaller than a mk2 supra flare.

Then 205/50-15 or something of that nature in diameter and width and with preferred construction and compound should suffice fora nicely balanced car.

We've seen tires as large as 225/35-18 installed on AE86's. Offsets will much depend on fenders, alignments, and details. But best handling on track is achieved with 15x8 or 14x7.5 or so wheels with corresponding tire sizes at about 195~205 widths. Larger wheels or lower profile tires tend to aggra...

Re: Need engine build advice. New to the 4age power plant.

Let me ask this. Would it be better to build a 7age.
Or spend that money on building a super strong lower end 4age and keep it high rpm.

Re: Need engine build advice. New to the 4age power plant.

I think it has a lot less to do with the chassis than it does the driver. I haven't driven an AE86 under it's own power but I have driven enough similar cars to know what I want to feel when I'm driving. For me in any car if I have time to sit and think about how slowly the tach is climbing in thir...

Tire size questions.

So I kind of want to turn this is to a thread where everybody posts their wheel and tire setup. As well as suspension. My question is what is the biggest tire you can fit under an AE86 (mine is an SR5) with stock suspension. And what about if you have a 1-2" lowering kit. Wheel offset and info ...

Re: Need engine build advice. New to the 4age power plant.

Coming from a purist... I would keep the motor stock(or stock rebuilt), EFI, the whole shebang with some bolt ons, i.e. header, exhaust, intake. Spend your money on bushings, suspension, diff. Then, the important part, have fun with it and learn how the chassis works and drives. I see a ton of over...

Re: Need engine build advice. New to the 4age power plant.

What MisterJerk said. All the car needs is a freshly rebuilt 4AGE to be a blast to drive. I have plenty of fun on track harassing much faster cars on track. Plus, the feeling of going over a crest or around a corner with your foot flat on the floor is much better than the feeling when you lift. :) ...

Alright so how about this. 16V 7age. 10.45:1 comp pistons. Turbo. And that JC160 tranny. That's going to be expensive.

Re: Need engine build advice. New to the 4age power plant.

On that I would say pick your poison. Realistically the 16v will be a little cheaper to get set up. The main thing is that the 20v plenum can't take more than a few PSI of boost so you will need to get a turbo plenum. I can make these, as can a couple others but they aren't cheap. There are some ch...

You wouldn't have found anything because you are not going to find any GZE platform with the stock supercharger making that kind of power. I would not worry about looking for a GZE.

Sw20 seats in an 86?

So I am buying a trueno I found in a barn by my house. But the sr5 seats need to go.
My brother has some stock sw20 seats he will give me.

My question is what do I have to do for these to bolt in?
