    Here are some 16x7 and 16x8 Full Face Epsilons on a 1982 Corolla Drop Top. I'm going to try these under my RA20 Celica soon. I love these wheels!!! Tires are 205/40/16's

    I don't think most Nostalgics look that great with wheels bigger than 16. Even 16's can look a little big on some cars IMO. Plus most of the cars we dive were not designed for such big diameters...

    I agree to a certain extent. I prefer 13-14" wheels on most pre '80s to early '80s jtin. Some of the '80s stuff looks great with 15"+ though. I'd have to say the majority though still look better with smaller wheels. I am DEFINATELY not a fan of the huge wheel fad. Donks suck, lol.
