Your Opinions Please (CBY Flares)

Postby John H. » Sat Oct 19, 2013 8:46 pm

Hello C4AG,
I would like to know your opinions on what size wheel you think would fit nicely under a set of CBY fender flares.
I am looking into a set of Diamond Racing Wheels, kinda feel'n the Pro Streets in particular.

What do you guys think? 15x10s I would assume, maybe?...
BTW going for this sort of look> http://club4ag.com/tony-martinez-ae86-c ... yone-else/
Maybe a bit more aggressive up front if possible. :D
Thanks much!

-John

Check out this link: http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/showthread.php/70606-CBY-flares-and-wheels-to-suit
It gives you an idea of what you can run under the flares.

Here's a photo of my 86 for reference:
8.5 in the front with T3 NCRCA and 10 in the rear.

8.5 -22; 205/50
10 -28; 225/50
I did not really buy wide enough for the CBY flares.
Control arms are not extended at all in the front.

I am going to get rid of the NCRCA and go back to RCA.
Bring the camber down from -4 to something like -2.
Then slap on 225/50 all around, maybe 225/50 front and 235/50 rear (R888s).
I am not much of a drifter, mainly do lapping with the 86.

If I had money to order another set of custom wheels, I would do 9 -25 and 9 -50 for a meaty setup.
For a stretched setup, 9.5 -19 and 10 -38.

Wow... that's a very nice rear diffuser loot bag. Who makes it?

Pretty instane size tires/wheels too. I'm looking into the same CBY style setup but I think the max I'll run would be 205's.

I believe it's the Shine Auto FC diffuser, I bought it used.
Also came with the extra fins in the center which is an option.

The CBYs are meant for a meaty tire setup, 225s are a must!
If you ran 205s on a 10J... you could go even lower offset than what I stated above.
