Thx for your votes so far!!
Well the more I look at the TRD Tosco, the more I fall in love. But there's no way I'll ever get 8J under my standard arches. So does anyone know if they exist in 7J? And if so, what ET would they have? And more importantly, would they slot under standard Trueno arches?
Wheels are intensely personal... and sometimes simple availability is a significant determining factor...
Yahoo Japan is your friend... aboves link should get you to all the 13" - 114.3 x 4 used wheels for sale on Yahoo Japan
Thanks for the jap yahoo link Oldeskewltoy. Much appreciated!! I don't speak a word of Japanese, so I would have never gotten that far on my own. There are certainly lots of goodies on there, but sadly many of the really cool items are single wheels or only a set of two. But I did come across a stunning set of Enkei Apache IV in 6.5x13" with gold centers. Odd, cause with the exception mid-80's BMW's on BBS RS's I'm not normally a big fan of the crosspoke design, but my god they're awesome
Think they might very well suit the Trueno just fine...
I voted for Hayashi Streets, only because they are my favourite old school wheel, however I do think they would look better in a 14" rather than a 13"
Hmm... I did consider a 14" for quite some time Benny, but no, I've decided that I want the retro small-fat-alloy-with-big-ballon-tyre look...
That's my TA22 with the black Watanabes! Haha...
I've only seen one TE61 here in Singapore many years ago.
It's been scrapped because the owner couldn't afford to keep it on the road.
Anyway, here are some other TE61 pics I managed to find...
I vote for RS Watanabes because they seem like a timeless classic that's hard to go wrong with.
Are the wheel choices you listed available in Hong Kong? Just wondering...
Well I sincerely hope you don't mind me using your pic Christse!! I only did so because it's one of the most fab TA22's I've ever seen...
And thx for the pic of that white TE47 Trueno on Wats. It certainly does look good.
I already had the pic of the red Trueno, but didn't use it here as the arch extensions and super wide Wats aren't at all the look I'm going for anyway.
As for availability I recon that regardless what I decide to go for, I'll have to source them from overseas. Probably Japan, but of course Aus or US are also options...
i just voted for hayashi street
my god your car is beautiful
Hard to go wrong with Wats, but in this case since what you have are so similar, I'd say branch out a bit for a new purchase. You have a classic line-up to choose from, but it wouldn't hurt to peruse Yahoo Japan/here/elsewhere for a while to see if something else grabs you.
I know what you're saying. And as mentioned just above, I did actually really like the set of Enkei Apache IV that came up on Jap Yahoo. Or maybe a set of SSR mk.3...?? I dunno...??
