    I have a set of red 16x8's on my 240sx. They're pretty good for the price.

    IMO that starlet is better off without the sportmaxx..
    the ones installed now are a lot nicer..n periodictly correct IMO...

    i can see that the wheels on the starlet have some serious offset...
    but i like it..it gives the starlet a Bad Boy image kind of stance.. :lol:
    i had the similar stance on my 85 swift...
    it also rubbed hard when turning hard...only the rear though..
    how wide are the rims on the starlet??...7j??..n
    some 175/60/R13 tyres would be nice...to go with R13x7j
    i had the r13x8j et - 10 wheels with 185/60/R13 tyres setup on the '79 corolla..rear suspension is lowered about 10cm..gap left is about 4cm before occupied..rubbing only happens when i turn @ 60Km/H with the car occupied with 4 persons..2 front n 2 rear...
    maybe a stiffer rear springs might help??...

    yup same feeling i get with my swift with stick outs offsets..
    more confident to take those sharp turns faster.. :lol:

    but my mechanics says that it'll shortens the age of the front tie rods n balljoints..as they would be stressed more bcoz of the stickin' out offsets..
    is it true??..anyone??..
