What mags ???[ 11 vote(s) ]
1.Youre choice sucks, try something else 3 / 27%
2.The CSA Gladiators (16x8") 3 / 27%
3.The Superlites in Charcoal (16x7") 4 / 36%
4.The Superlites in another colour (16x7") 0 / 0%
5.Meh, neither are my cup of tea, but there are worse 1 / 9%

As Ed has just done, like some input as to what mags would look better on a Mk2 Red Supra.

The Superlites are $240 each, available in 4 x 114.3 with an offset of +12mm

The CSA Gladiators are $240 each as well, but only in 5x114.3 with +6mm offset (Ford pattern)

The tyres will be 225/50x16 and allow me to fit my 290mm diameter Alcon discs and 300ZX 4 pot calipers

If you like the Superlites, what colour would look best - Charcoal, Black or Gold ?

Cheers

Maybe you should get someone to photoshop them onto your car. A lot depends on what your car's like, eg colour?

Without knowing the above, I'd go the Superlites as best of an OK lot. At least they have a bit of a dish to them. Those CSAs just don't belong on an 80's Supra, to my eye. Superlites in black might look good - you could even pick out a detail to paint to match your car.

I've just finished restoring a set of stock MA61 wheels. Pollished, painted grey bits black and the 'pin strip' on each spoke red to match the car. I like it! Just wish I could fit bigger callipers & rotors under them Sad

Onya,

Justin

Someone has got 8 assessments due tomorrow and a group project where they decided to allocate me more work when I've already done more than enough.

So logic tells me that you should be applying yourself elsewhere and not on toyota forums Razz

Nope, I've allocated time for this Smile The assignments are under control had they not decided I should be doing more.

I've effectively sent them an e-mail saying "Fuck off, I didn't say I would do that"...no response yet Smile

I agree with dish, but I don't think the Superlites are stylish enough for a Supra. If you want dish, we'll just have to find you something else cool Smile

I have considered Superlights and IMHO look fine with a black poweder coated center if your after a "track enuthiast" look..

however the 5 spoke rims are always going to have "tuff street cred" appeal... but only if they are black / dark silver.... these only apply to white and black ma61's.... for any other colour these would bite ass...

superlites belong on a MINI or an MG only (and maybe an escort).

supras need DISH, the deeper the better

Thanks guys for all of the feedback, and yes Frank, I have started collecting the stuff for the only time the HG will blow, maybe....

But then again, my car still does have flares !!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Seroiusly though, there aint many mags (even with a Ford offset that have any dish. Typically they are very similar to FWD, but extend the boss on the back of the hub Sad

I'm also looking very cloely at a set of B45 simmons in 16x8" for a bargain as well.

With the centres repainted, they'll look schmick and they have some good dish Very Happy

Haha, tis all good Smile I'm in a better mood this morning so I lash back Smile

The Simmons are a good choice, even as dirty as they were and only 15" the B45's on our parts car looked good.
