I'm thinking about getting wide body kit for my S15 and I got so many question about tires and wheels to match wide body.

1. Does wheels and tires get custom ordered for specific size?

2. If tires get custom ordered than how much more do they charge compare to pre-made? (%)
I'm talking about wide tires

I'm asking these question cause I want it super wide like +50mm

You can buy wide tyres off the shelf. Never heard of anyone getting custom tyres lol.

How wide wheels are you looking at?

same lol.

i know you can buy bridgestones in the order of 300+ you will be able to buy other brands in wide sizes too.

but unless you got 3000 ponies turning them, whats the point? just get better rubber and use better sizes that are affordable and available....

300 wide tires will cost considerably more than 265/275/285 (which are plenty wide)

Shit like this is why everyone thinks 99.7% of silvia owners are fucktards.
Now I've vented

What is your budget? as wheels and tyres for 50mm widebody is going to be at least $5k
Factor in $5-8000 for kit, fitting and paint.
All for the efame and the internet made you do it.

1. You can get some wheels in a custom size, by getting 2-piece wheels re-barrelled. However, you won't be doing this, so the answer to your question is "just buy some wheels in the size/width/offset you require off the shelf, or get some wheels and increase the offset using bolt-on spacers as needed". Generally speaking, you won't get custom tyres, as they already come in a huge range of sizes, including whatever size you'll need.

2. You won't be getting custom wheels or tyres, so this is irrellevant. Measure what you need, then shop for wheels that match, then buy some tyres that suit the wheels.

you still haven't told us what size tyre you're after, that's why you're getting rubbish responses to be fair.

Some sizes aren't as available to other sizes. I didn't have a huge selection when I was looking for 245/45R16 tires.
