You'll struggle to get modgies here mate. It's only for Kiwis in Kiwiland.

You'll have a lot more choice in 15". That's my point.

Best of luck with it.

14" so old news.. I'm dying.. you know when heard anyone stuck in 20th century.lol This's 21 century and why not to update to 15" wheels. There's more on ebay that selling like piles high. Got a used OZ wheels 6.5x15" and new toyo TR11 rubbers put into it was 205/55/15.
14" is the sweet spot for these cars, 15" looks too big and theres no good reason to run 15s unless you need brake clearance, but you can still have great brakes that fit under 14s.

T1Rs are not a good reason to run 15s at all, they're ok but not particularly good tyres. there are better tyres available that also come in 14s.

+40 and a 205/60/14 will rub I think. I'd run about a +15 to +25 offset in a 14x7 and run a 185/60/14. Don't get the NS2, get the NS2-R.

0 offset will poke like mad on an S3, will look ridiculous
