Hello Jun,
The car has definitely come a long way since I last saw it. It looks amazing. Keep up the great work!
I have a question for you on the first pictures, at the top of the page. What brand and make are those alloy wheels? The ones before you upgraded to the 15X8.5's. I think they'd look great on a coupe. I may have to sell my GT-S/Supra wheels, and get a set of those instead.

Thanks twotone! I think once I get the car transferred, do whatever mechanical repairs it needs, and get it on the road, I'll start looking for a set of 5, so I have a matching spare.

No problem!  :biggrin: That sounds like a great plan. Usually the Rotas (new) can be had for $500-600 for a set of 4 (or around $150 per wheel) depending on where you get them. The Hayashis... well, be prepared to sell an organ. 14x7 +7mm are nearly $1300 for a set of 4 new...

I'm actually planning on getting the Rotas because of costs.. of course. And 15x7 +0mm weighs 14lbs each which isn't bad at all!

Knock-off will do me just fine. No need to sell a kidney, for me. :heh:
If they look that good, I'm OK with them not being real JDM. They're just wheels, after all. :rolleyes:

Thanks Coupe! I am actually still running the same size wheels, just a different type of wheel though haha, I have been 15x8 +0 for yearrrs and still am, it fits just right! These particular alloys were Rota Shakotans, but currently I have the TE37 V knock offs from Rota lol.

Oh snap! Didn't know those were 15's as well. Either way, they look great on our cars, IMHO. I'd upgrade to a 15 anyway, if I'm spending the money.  ;)

Do it! The tire selection is alright, but it's a helluva lot better selection than 14's, that's for sure!

HAHAHA! Probably not necessary at all in SoCal, but extremely helpful in the NE, where snow can get as much as 48" high.  :yes:
