The ej9.co.uk S13

After fitting HSD coilovers to my S13, the obvious step to take next was, of course, some proper wheels. I’d been searching for the right set ever since I took ownership of the car, holding out until I found the perfect ones (very uncharacteristic of me!). Eventually, they appeared: a set of 16×8 et10 Rota Grids, 4×114.3 pcd, nearly new tyres all round and a very reasonable price. I couldn’t resist, and so after a couple of PMs on the Driftworks forum and a quick courier booking, I had them sat on my driveway.

After slapping them on as quickly as I could I was extremely happy with the result. The car actually came with a set of hubcentric spacers on the front so the fitment will be pretty much spot on once I’ve dialled in a little bit more camber. As for the rears and the arches definitely need to see some attention from an arch roller and/or some scaffolding. Once they’ve been rolled and slightly flared I can go all out and bolt on a set of spacers to get them filling the arches properly.

Overall though I’m really happy with the look so far. Obviously there’s still a long way to go to get this thing looking and driving brilliantly, but I think I’ve made a big step in the right direction. Please excuse the not-so-brilliant pictures as well, I took them while rushing to a local meet.
