Are there any 15" rims that will fit my fourth gen without grinding caliper.
Even minimal grinding is fine. Or what 16" rims would anyone recommend? I have 15x3.5 prostar weld's for the front. So anything that will look similar.
I would do the 16's because I already have 16" slicks. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Look at the thread about 7 down from yours, someone just asked about this yesterday, you want wheels that you wont have to grind its going to cost alot more,

I'm not totally against grinding. Im just wondering if there were 15" Wheels I don't have to grind. Do you not have to grind the racestars? What backspacing? Thanks for the replies..:usa:

Really? 15"x10 with 7.5" backspace would be what I would need then correct??
Where did you find them for $175??

None yet. In the process of ordering strange s60 but wasn't planning on shortening.

a 15x10 with 5.5 b.s will stick out of the quarter panels pretty hard

should be "may" fit without grinding. mine and many others have had to grind "a little" to make them fit. no big deal tho.

This is what I was getting at, if it isn't narrowed then you'll need 7.5" of backspacing on a 15x10 for a stock length rearend

Gotcha, so what would my benefits of shortening my reared be?
Other than making a 5.5 bs work..

Shorter axle's are stonger axle's, same goes for the housing. It will be a bit lighter also. If you can shorten, you might as well
