    Hi Guys,

    I'm a Skyline owner wannabe and i've been following your thread on rims. I was wondering:

    1. is there a 17" TE37 or LMGT4?
    2. would the 17" look good on a skyline?
    3. Any pics with 17" rims on a skyline?

    I'm just curious how these rims (17") would look like on the car.

    1. is there a 17" TE37 or LMGT4?

    yes there is 17" TE37 as the model is universal and it can be plonked to any cars/models
    yes there is 17" LMGT4 but doubtful whether it is for r34 as R34 normally use 18"

    2. would the 17" look good on a skyline?
    3. Any pics with 17" rims on a skyline?

    a mate of mine been using 17" on his R34
    it looks a bit small for such a long car
    the most important thing is the rims' width not its size

    Farique,

    The 17"s look... horrible, i have to say...or is it the 4 door that threw me off :)

    Jahax,

    If using the 18s:

    1. What's the width that I should be looking at?
    2. How much would the rims cost (new and used, TE37 & LMGT4)?

    AS for the width, your is GTR34 or ER34? GTR had a wider body setup than the E34.

    LMGT4 & TE37: Going to cost you anywhere from RM4,000 up to RM7,000 depend on the condition of the wheels and the owner.

    Nismo,

    I'm still wannabe owner. Most likely an ER34. In my dreams, I will convert the ER34 to GTR wide body...and maybe paint it blood red...JK.. :)

    4-7k includes tires?

    Wow..blood red ah?? You men Ferrari type kind of red yah :love::love: You better know what is the color code for it or else its gonna be like normal red....:coffee: If you convert into full GTR body and front wide body, you gonna need at least either 18" or 19" X 10! If you need more info on the offset, try PM Semerfi as he is the expert in it already! :biggrin:

    So far the pricing some are includes the tires and some are not....depend on your luck....:smokin:

    17"s doesn't look good on R34s. Check his new 18"s.

    azmir1 ...

    normal width set up for er34 is between 8" - 8.5" front and 9" - 9.5" rear with an offset of between +30 - +35 front and +35 - +38 rear ... we are talking abt normal set up not on overkill set up

    for gtr34, i guess it between 9.5" - 10.5" with an offset of >+20 all round

    if im not wrong brand new 18" LMGT4 gonna cost u in the region of good ol fifteen grand ... not sure abt TE37 though

    Bump: farique ...

    luv those nismo gt wing stand ... rare stuff

    Brand new TE37 now cost approximately 10k. The last time I asked, they wanted to sell it to me for RM15k!! Rip off!

    not too sure who's azman ;) ....but, yeah i've seen the ads in ZTH.

    the price doesn't seem consistent (for a GTT at least). It ranges from 11xk to 14xk. Budget only for 11xk.

    saw one unreg (manual), but a bit pricey...14xk. standard mandard...good for project car.

    hopefully can get 1 soon...
