New wheels – Stitch Gulf 18×9, 18×10

Finally! After waiting around a month, the 4th wheel showed up from Okinawa! These wheels are for my S13, to replace my old school SSR meshies. I got an awesome deal on these used wheels, mainly because of the corrosion that I’ll need to deal with. I haven’t decided whether to strip and rechrome the centers, or strip and powdercoat them black. Pics!

Guess I need to pick up some tires. Won’t know tire sizing until I chuck the wheels up to check out clearance. From looking at other ride with similar size wheels, I’m guessing I’ll need a 215/40 on the 9s and a 225/40 on the 10s to clear my stock body with some stupid camber. If I can’t make it fit decently I’ll be forced to do the wide body I’ve been putting off forever. Still need to install my Q45 front calipers, rotors, S14 LCA’s — and — pick up some S14 spindles!
