Too vague of a question. What's your goal?

Well say would a 0 offset 15" rim that is 8" wide fit without spacers or fender rolling?

Nope. For a 15x8 +20 is optimal. With a 0 offset you're looking at 195 tires and severe fender pulling.

What width on a 15" rim and 0 offset would work then, if any? 15x7.5 et0?15x7 et0? 15x6.5 et0?

They can all "work", but with varying levels of fender work and tire stretching necessary.

As a general rule, I never recommend 0 offset wheels. They're simply not made for our cars. A 15x8 +13 will look 10x better than a 15x7 +0, and will require the same fender considerations.

Looking to get some Konig Remembers or ESM 002. Does it make a difference in fitment? I heard the ESMs are hubcentric while the Konigs aren't.

Konigs:
16x7 4x100 20mm offset 73.1mm hub bore
or
16x7 4x100 35mm offset 73.1mm hub bore
or
16x7 4x100/114.3 35mm offset 73.1mm hub bore

ESM:
So many to chose from, I don't know which ones best.

Thanks

In general just aim for the 20 offset versions. The first Konigs would be perfect, just need hubcentric rings.

As for the ESMs many of those will fit, just depends on what sort of look you're going for.

Fitment gurus, I'm looking for as much insight as possible. Looking to buy some wheels, and I'm concerned the rears will poke more than I'd like.

Specs:
16x8,5 et14 / 16x10 -3
205/40's all around. I have an 87 with high arches I will also have an eastwood roller at my disposal. Car is on Cosmos/Billy sports w/ all urethane bushings. Other than that, nothing.

These are the wheels, and I am ok with the poke on the XB.


I can't imagine an XB having more room for wheels than my car?
Thanks in advance!

LOL, you realize I'm the fitment guy here also, right? As I said on R3V, they won't fit without extensive fender work (flares being the most logical, but extreme cutting/pulling of the stock bodywork is possible).

The TRMs are likely quite a bit lighter, but aesthetics are up to you. I'd recommend either.
