hmm i have z32 wheels with 245's they seem to fit nicely. i dont remember the offset and width though. i do know they are the non turbo wheels. but yours flow with your car nicely.

my old toyota had 3 of the 4 drive shaft bolts rattle out and the drive shaft came apart enough to get locked up against the cab when i was doing 45mph. it cracked the block. drive shafts are for sure no joke!
