Mags[ 51 vote(s) ]
1.A 9 / 18%
2.B 2 / 4%

4.D 7 / 14%
5.E 1 / 2%
6.F 3 / 6%
7.G 4 / 8%

So, whats better?

I could go with either of these, I do prefer some over the others.

They are all 17x7 with +20 to +14 offset.

Sorry for the poor photoshops.

I feel that you should keep searching. Straight, parallel-lined spokes would match the straight body

That may be the case, but NOBODY makes mags in a 4x114.3 and +20 offset.
And if they do, they look shithouse.

BSA is the first manufacturer I know of to make such combinations.

And no, $2400 on Simmons is not an option (plus tyres)

Buddy Clubs aren't an option cos the 17x7 only comes in +25 offset (nothing lower, only higher), which won't work legally on the rear.

And those 2nd mags you posted are ewww.

I voted C as well

I think old school cars, need old school mags. There are the rare exceptions where chromes can look good on a classic, but it's rare.

I picked these puppies up for $850 off of ebay, in pretty good nick with 3 good tyres, a new tyre and a bit of a spit and a polish and they came up brill!

My second hand car doesn't need first hand mags Smiley =

Buddy Club 16x7.5s come in +12 or +22mm . . . .

Before you can say it - I agree that 17" is WHERE IT'S AT ! !



You would perhaps like this:
http://www.adrwheels.com/sfImages.large/197.jpg

Nevermind that they're virtually impossible to get in Australia, they range from +35 to +45 offset, which is easily enough room for a proper bolt-on convertor ring, with its own shoulder.



-food for thought?



eh?
http://www.adrwheels.com/sfImages.large/200.jpg

Perhaps in Silver:

Maybe Super-Touring is more your bag:

Spacers are illegal in WA.

The offset HAS to be +20 to +16. So that rules out 90% of rims.

Buddy clubs +22's will be illegal on the rear, and +12's will illegal on the front.
Hence I can't get Buddy clubs.

Re: Choose CrUZ's Mags Tue, 14 December 2004 04:13 Go to previous messageGo to next message
Get a set with mixed offsets. Plenty of people HAVE to do it. I think it only costs another $40 or something for the set.


That's an option anyway. Can you get hub converters engineered in WA? I'm not talking about the flat rings that people just jam behind the wheel: I'm talkin bolt-on hub adaptors with THEIR OWN studs and central shoulder to seat the wheel on (as god intended). As long as it's all centred and solid, and the front & rear track hasn't been altered beyond the legal limits, where's the problem?

I must admit though, I'm not a big fan of such elaborate work-arounds. Much easier to just stick a wheel straight on the hub eh? Nod Rolling Rolling Nod



Just do yahoo and google searches with this: ["4x114.3" 17x7 +16]

or +20 or +18 etc. etc. until you strike it RICH! ! !



The Tyre rack has a "view on your car" applet.

Hub convertors are illegal, the only way to do it would be to convert the actual hub to 5 stud (ie, use the hub off a different car, like a crown).

I have inquired about this many times (and spacers) using all forms of physics as reasoning, but bottom line is they won't allow it, full stop.

Only some manufacturers will do special offsets.

And surprise surprise, tirerack.com doesn't list the 86 Cressida Rolling Eyes

Chrome mags won't be going near the car.

All the mags pictured are silver (like the stock ones), but D just looks white for some reason.

Must admit. I don't like that car either. Would look great with gunmetal or a dark mag. White would also look good on that car. With the brakes painted electric blue.


On the celica the gunmetal look nice.


I also believe in tints before mags.

OK, it's all about the dish AND the brake callipers. Razz

And, yes, I just like that hachi dishy black/grey-centre look. Looks good on any car, IMHO.

I'm sorry, but I rate EVERY one of those rims I posted up top higher than black centre/polished lip rims.
Permit me to demonstrate.

Yeah - the mesh is wahey too busy. I think a couple of the 5-spokes would look ok though.

I'm not big on the polished rim either, that's just all that I found that'd fit ur car.

Hey, each to their own Smile


Personally, I think the best thing about the whole drift/AE86 craze is that it's bringing in a whole buncha cool wheels, that fit our cars and will be for sale in a few years Razz

Mmmmm .... Speedstars [drool]

Ummm, have a look at all the 16 and 17 inch wheelled AE86's at that NSW cruise. C'mon, you seriously don't like those 5 back sopkes that Jag just posted below? How about jellybeans then? Laughing

Umm, yeh, for all my talk of 16x9 deep-dish, black centred import wheels - I'll probably make the same shitty compromise in 4 stud. Sad

EDIT: So, it's all about the dish, the brakes, the availability and the Goddamn price.

FUCK OFF WITH MESH

I HATE MESH, IT DOES NOT SUIT THE CAR

And I can't go dish, coz I want 4spot brakes.
Dish = shit brakes
No dish = ze uber brakes.

chill out darling.. its all good. no need to get your panties all tied up.

well dont get dish. and not mesh. and not 'hachi' style, whatever the fuck that is.

so your limited to +40 offset non-dished 17" wheels that arent mesh and arent 'hachi' style. hrmmm. tough. maybe some nie flat 5 spoke 'mazdaspeed' copies?

like these?
