So the economy wheels I bought do not fit over the hubs of the Z car. The seller says I can return them if I pay for shipping. I would rather sell them local-ish. 

The wheels are new in box. 

Two 15x8 0 offset

Two 15x9 0 offset

4x100mm and 4x114.3 bolt patterns. 

$425.00 

I also have two 205/50R15 Accellera 651 Sport 200TW tires. They are new unmounted tires. 

They were $137 each new. I will take $225 for the pair. 

Talk to me. We can work out a deal. Trying to make a Florida trip in May...

In reply to QuasiMofo (John Brown) :

I was actually looking at those.  Let me think about the 15x8s as I was wanting 15x9 all the way around.  In no way am I calling dibs.

Exocet peoples might be interested in that.

Center bore? I have a router bit that will open them up 1/8"

Actually hits where the end of the bearing cap goes and sets the wheel out almost 3/4 of an inch. 

The newer ones were ones that I wanted but were double the price but went on sale over $300 off and I pulled the trigger AND as a bonus they 100% fit with no problems.

I had a similar problem with the wheel spacers we used to run C5 wheels on first gen S10s. I was able to machine the OD of the first portion of the hub where the dust cap goes on without having to go so far in that it was into the area that support the outer bearing race. This resolved our problem without having to cut the spacer and loose the lip for hub centric support to the wheels. Might work on this situation too.

New wheels are already here in boxes, tomorrow I hope to have tires on wheels and the first two installed tomorrow by noon. I have to drill rotors on the rear rotors and reset the rear hubs to 4x114.3 instead of 4x108 (Car currently has T Bird turbo coupe rear brakes)
