Wheel Fitments

Post by mech770 » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:07 pm

I thought it would be worthwhile to put a list together of wheels/ tyre sizes that are known to fit / not fit the R36. The below is based in standard suspension unless otherwise specified. Any other fitments drop them across for me and ill add them into this post

18 inch:
18 x 8J ET44 - Standard

19 inch:
19 x 8.5J ET45

Rub issues:
18 inch:

19 inch:
19 x 9J Et40 - Catches on outer wheel wells under hard braking or cornering, clears suspension

"Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you"

Horses in the stable:
2008 Black VW Passat R36 - 312 WHP
2008 Orange KTM RC8 1190 - 152 RWHP
1979 Blue Suzuki GT 250B - 27 RWHP - on the up!
