If im not remembering all wrong you need an et of 35 or higher to fit a 7" wide rim in there, you might be able to get an 8" wide in there but thats cutting in close. Ive seen plenty of cars with 16" and 17" rims but bigger than that might be tricky...


Agreed. Stock offsets were in the +38 range IIRC. A 15x7 in the +25 to +30 range would fill out the fenders nicely without too much fear of rubbage. :tu:

anything above about +40 and 6.5" wide will probably need spacers in the back to keep the tires from rubbing the struts.

I'm glad you didn't go with the coilovers, those things can be brutal on the street. I have owned those B&Gs on an ae92 actually, but I strongly recommend purchasing better struts expecially if your's are still the stockers. they'll bottom out a lot and will be a terrible ride, dont ask me how I know. Probably even if you went with KYBs it would be significantly better.

Those rotas would look nice. I also have a soft spot for drag dr20s, when I had my ae92 I always wanted a set. (first picture taken from TN, user ae92boi)

something like this would be cool:

Thats a modded grill and bumper though, the crossbars in the bumper and grill hacked off, but you get the idea.

That was the most succesful 'rolla to sell here, and I must admit my fav gereration of it(though I own an E110). An example in decent(not excellent) condition would still fetch EUR2500-3000! and the basic version.

As for wheel choice I go for the ones in the top pic. there are quite a few around with them. Will post pics should I come across one

Assuming it's got a carburetor? If so, I'd say your choke quit working.

Yep good old 4AF. 88' is the worst year IMO. Because if you didn't get a 2 door GTS you were stuck with a 4af while the 4afe is so much the better. You need a carb rebuild or you can spring for a weber but since you have an automagic, no real point. Make it a nice cruiser but don't expect much in the way of proformance unless you do a 5 speed swap at the very least. Yes the AE92 suspension is the same throughout the models. It can even be changed out with AE82 strut and spring wise.

Honestly, if you're talking about something from the manifold back, custom/muffler shop stuff is usually cheaper than off-the-shelf stuff. A good muffler shop ought to be able to set you up for $200 or so.

I have an SR5 coupe, if your looking for springs try Ebay. Try even typing in AE92 Trueno for parts also. 8)

FWD to RWD? Yeah, you are dreaming a lil on the big side. LOL :wink:

I guess anything can be done if you got the right amount of food stamps. Hehee :lol:

The labor would probably be roughly 5-10 times the cost of the parts. :wink:

You know they made a FWD 4AGE right? That would be the simplest way...

Even a high horsepower 20-valve version with ITBs. 8)

Nice car of choice. There are a lot of possible mods for the car. Engine wise, we usually debate in choosing all stock 4AGE Blacktop, 4AGE Silvertop, 4AGZE or 4EFTE. All of them would fit with just minor modifications. If you want to go all the way, you might want to try 4AGTE (4AGZE fitted with a turbo) or 7AGE (4AGE head+7AFE block). We even have some here who fitted 3SGE Redtop Beams or 3SGTE on this chassis.

I have the same car, only difference is that its PHDM ( Philippine Domestic Market ). There are a lot of us here who are into setting those up. Here's a link of our group's car photos: http://grupotoyota.com.ph/board/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=78
Please feel free to look around and ask for some ideas on your ride. We have a lot of knowledgeable people in there that can answer some of your questions as well. Here's the link for the forums: http://grupotoyota.com.ph/board/index.php
As far as rims are concerned, I would suggest getting Watanabe RS8's, SSR Mk2's or 15' Tom's New Actions. Its 15' +38 offset paired with 195/50/R15 Tires. Those would look great on your car. Here are some sample pics:
