PostSubject: New wheel ideas   Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:50 pm

my car has stock sr5 13's, and while I like them, I am lusting after another wheels lol. I know the current trend is deep dish wheels on narrow tires, but it's not for me. What I do like is a flat faced wheel with zero lip. for example, from ericsfreeae86's for sale thread:



I also have a love for three spoke wheels or atleast swept spoke wheels, like these enkei curly:





I know these wheel styles are in that inbetween phase between old school cool and unheard of, so what I am looking for are somehting similar. s13 wheels are dman close, i think the only thing that is wrong are the offsets i think, and maybe a bit to big for an ae86? for example:




I also kind of like the old infinit g20 wheels, but they are not quiet what i am wanting


I figure my best bet for the type of wheels I want are probably gonna to be a set of stock wheels from the late 80's/early 90's with the right lug pattern and offset, but i'm drawing up blanks on any similar wheel. Size wise I am thinking maybe 14's? not to wide, I just have a daily driver, I feel 15's are a bit to large, and heavy mostly. Whichever wheel I would get, I would paint them white, since my coupe is going to be white and black two tone.

Man that is cool! You could buy my pair, but you'll likely never find a matching pair lol.

This is what you need.


I would buy them but already got some Western Wheel centerline reps:

(Not my car, I actually bought my set off that car)

the thing is i want the swept spoke look, i dig the sort of cheesy late 80/90's preformance look


eric, i would, but fidning another two would be impossible, and your wheels re the wring bolt pattern for the 86, when i found out, i was heart broken </3
