Since we nostalgists are such wheel nuts, I thought it might be fun to have everyone post pics of the most ridiculous wheels they've come across, whether they are the widest, lowest offset or deepest dish.

I like these Hayashis but sadly they are not mine. They are 14x10 -36 and were on sale on YJA for $2000!

These aren't by any means the widest, they are the widest I've owned. I was told they are 14x9.5 -26 (fronts are 14x9 -16) but haven't actually verified.

I think they look pretty good and the nice thing is that they are rash free. They do need to be black though, so that is on the list of things to do.

lol I am not going to post the ones I have seen cause of my volkswagon background (which transitioned to subaru for some odd reason :P ) but I have seen 15X16's before, they are used for sandrails and drag cars

More from Yahoo Auctions:

Racing Hart 14x12" -61 offset

Image

Yayoi "Sakura" 14x12" unknown offset
Image
Image
Image

Another pair of Yayois 14x13" -78 offset (I call 'em flower pots)
I think this pair was going for $4000 or something like that.

Those are just insane!! They'll need some serious boso over-fenders.

I had some non-jdm 14x10's that sadly never got fitted with tyres to my cedric.

A local tuner shop was going to fit 19x14 Work Equips to the rear of their shop drift car, I thought those wheels were pretty nuts.

Those 14x13 Yayois are ridiculous. Are there even tires available that fit them?

these are my MKIIs. straight off a bosozoku, to my front door. sadly the race tires i bought them with were a. cracked and dry and b. too heavy to bother shipping them on the wheels.
