    Cool Need help with a desired stance.

    Hello guys, I own an 89 accord hatchback and was wanting to have a stance like the one in the picture

    -img_5727-jpg

    The car pictured is sitting on 15x8 with 0 offset wrapped in 195/45/15 all the way around. My question to you guys at stock height would I have to roll fenders to fit 15x8 or 16x8 on an 89 accord hatch?

    I think you would only need to worry about the fenders if you planned to drop it. I have 195/50/15 (35mm offset) and they tuck when I go around corners fast or hit speed bumps. But again stock height I would think no rub. But why zero offset with stock height? I know some people like that protruding look...

    Stock height is for the conditions in which I will be using my car. I much prefer to protruding look and thought 0 off set would be my best bet, but thats why im asking for uncertainty.

    There is a handy offset calculator in this thread: https://www.3geez.com/forum/suspensio...ml#post1016948

    It won't help you with fender rub, but it will at least help you figure out if your wheels will rub the wheel well when turning. And if you keep the tire radius close to stock it probably wont rub on your fender, unless you take jumps.

    I run 16x8+0 195/45/16 and I have bearly any issues. But then again, you have to know what your doing in the stance game to make it work. Fyi I'm not at stock height. I'd like to help if anyone has any questions

    I only have issues making hard turns. But then again this stance isn't for handling, its for show.

    Hey Man, i own a 1989 SE-I sedan .. im trying to get the same exact look as your wheels but instead of running 16's i want to run 15x8 0 offset, my question is what tires should i run instead to get the same look? appreciate it.
