I have purchased some rims on ebay, they are from if i understand correctly from early celica supra.

I need one more, but all i find are the baby supras anchos and finos. I get that. but if you look carefully all these othe rims the cap is held by screws, and some are held inside the rim.

Butttttt, mine have a lip yes thats right they have a lip to hold the cap. I cant even find a similar set anywhere, 3tc or clubage or celicasupra or any other car forum nor ebay or craigs.

Where did these rims come. somebody must know..
Thanks,,,

these are mine

I had a set of these on a GTO back in about 1989. If I remember correctly the guy I got them off said they were off a Celica. Sorry, I can't help more than that.

Could be. Seen the 14" version on some Cressidas of that era.

WHY, do misinformed people call THOSE rims Baby Supras? They are NOT Baby Supras... they are the REGULAR Supra rims. :roll:

Those rims are 14 inch(and are not deep dish). Baby Supras ONLY came in a 13 inch size(hence the reason, they are called "Baby Supras"), and are staggered... meaning the front pair is narrower than the back pair(which usually has alot deeper dish than the front pair).

THESE ,below, are true(13 inch) Baby Supras...although, this set has 2 pairs of the back wider rims, to make one complete set(which is even better). 8)

Definitely Celica-Supra/Corona. It's possible that they made two versions depending on years ones with the screws and ones with just the cap. Who knows :?
