Im not quite sure if this is the right place to put this or not but no sense in starting a new thread of somethimg simple, anyway I got a little creative, I have a set of rota shakotans 15x9 with a 0 offset, I sourced a set of 1980 corolla center caps and this was the after and before shots

Looks great! How do they attach? I might steal your idea for my next wheel combo.

The way I suggest is take your wheels to a machine shop with your centercaps amd have them cut a groove into the wheel since it is in fact smooth from the factory and that should be all you need to do, I would also suggest some extended lugnuts since you see ill have to fight to get my key in these, thank yall ill be honest I bought these from a guy in california and they fit on my accident I just happen to have liked them lol

Just installed my latest aquisitions.
Spec
Front 17x8.5 0. Offset
235/45R17
Rear 17x9.5 0offset
255/45R17






Slight rub in the back when I hit big bumps

Will be installing longuer lower arm in the front so I might have to roll the fenders and grind the air damn (Kaminary).
I think the front would look better with 225/40's instead and more drop.

I'm running the old sets with awesome NT-01 which grip like tomorow. I needed a street set
V8 RA65L: Race/street beast
90 2wd pick-up truck: Sold
GS300 2001: Gone and won't miss it.

Bassett 57RT4 15X7 Dot D-Hole 4 on 4.5 4 Inch Backspace Black Wheel

Fuzion Touring All-Season Radial Tire - 225/60R15 96H

On all 4's - Little rubbing on full lock back outs of inclined driveways on the driver side only. I think it's the fender but driving it I get no rubbing.
