I'm biased towards wheels made in Japan, if that isn't obvious. What are some of your favorite wheels that tickle your fancy?
1. Blitz 03
2. MB Battles
3. Advan Model 5
>dat 3 wheel choice
10/10 taste OP
I would add nissan r33s and bbs CH and LMs
1. Advan RG
2. Advan RS
3. Enkei RPF01
But first, tires and brakes.
Ya'll niggas disappoint me.
1. BBS RS
2. RS Watanabe
3. Hayashi Type CR
Pic is what I'm getting for my car.
nah, too thick looking.. was thinking something more along the lines of pic related.. but I want something more metallic looking and not so ricey
id have these if I wanted to race or something
I'm not talking about racing. MR2s don't have a lot of power so any significant change in the size or weight of the wheels is going to make it feel sluggish on the street where you've got stop and go shit. Just some friendly advice.
nevermind, theye like ~14 pounds, the thing I googled first was wrong, so thats not so bad I guess. so I just gotta make sure any wheels I buy are 14 pounds or less
and theyre 14"
71 here, I'm getting the 9s and running 225/45s. Without knowing the sidewall height the width is kind of useless, but assuming it's 50 you should be fine going either way with them.
Theoretically? Yes. Practically? Fuck no. 13 is the absolute smallest I'd go and that's driven more by tire selection than anything. You can really only find DOT slicks for 13s anyway so 15s have become the new hotness.
Federal 595 RS-R
205/50R15, but it's a cheater tire. Measured tread width is 215mm. Not sure on the actual sidewall height, but OD should be damn close to the 23" it's rated for.
I wouldn't recommend 9s then. Even at 215 you're looking at a stretch and the only real advantage to wider wheels is allowing you to run wider tires anyway. Just go with the 8s to be safe.
205s on a 9 inch rim is a bit extreme.
He's winning national titles with it, so obviously it's faster than the same tire on 15x8. Or maybe a guy that owns a company that primarily sells wheels hasn't bothered to test his tires on multiple sizes of wheel.
nope, stancefag shit man. it goes liek this:
>step 1: take car
>step 2: make car un-drivable
>step 3: not sut up about muh stance
>Bitch because you can't have it
>implying having stance is something hard to gey
you just need to literally destroy your suspension
Sure you can cut your springs and it'll sit that way, but to do it correctly without destroying your shit is a different ballgame.
That'd be like saying lowriders don't have a ton of money and time invested in them
You just don't know what you're talking about and blurt shit out of your ass because you only recognize nigger rigged "stanced" vehicles
>implying a "stance build" is something so hard people bitch about because its so complicated to do
my god wow, dumbest post in a while
> Not know what you're talking about
nah thats cool, I understand how suspension geometry is supposed to be like
> Bitch because you can't have it
and I don't want "it" I like my bike loud and my truck with working suspension
> Mfw you're going to look like a fucking idiot in a year or two when you do get it
god help us if I'm the only one without a stance car in 2 years. actually it would be a riot to see all of the cars stuck on speedbumps, curbs, slight downgrades, etc.
Obviously shit posting undermining peoples work and posting your weeaboo shit again, janny
I don't care much for stance, but a lot of people at Lexus/Infiniti meets I go too have "stanced" vehicles and spent upwards to 15-20k on wheels tires and suspension, not including the body work done. To do it is one thing, to do it correctly with everything to your liking is another. Obviously not even an enthusiast if you can't appreciate other peoples work
> NO IT'S NOT WHAT I LIKE
You must be a real hit with the ladies
> air suspension
> high spring rates in static builds
I'm convinced with the fact that your inner 12 year olds are coming out and are buttmad you don't have it, nor have a car worth doing it to
no I'm perfectly content with being able to pull into my driveway. It's nice that you like stance cars, but I think it's a dangerous hobby, not just to you but other motorists. I dread the day some stance car clips me on my bike because he cant steer
It's like crying about a lowered/stretched bike
Not for everyone, but if the person who built it likes it and there's people who enjoy looking at them what's the harm?
Still sticking to the fact that you're anally devastated
>still thinking im the janny
>spent upwards to 15-20k on wheels tires and suspension
the amount of money spent on coilovers, 3 piece wheels and camber plates has nothing to do with fab skills faggot, bodywork is like the easiest fab skill, and obv those guys just widened the arches
>Obviously not even an enthusiast if you can't appreciate other peoples work
No faggot, you can be a hip hop enthusiast, enjoy real shit and hate faggots like lil wayne
before you open your dumb mouth and make a butthurt tantrum you should know what you are talking about, i actually like vippu lexus and infinitis, but vippu != stance
stance is retarded and i dont give a fuck if you spend 10k on wheels, the fab skills involved in stance are minimal compared to pretty much any other style of modifications faggot
> NO IT'S NOT WHAT I LIKE
thats right faggot, i dont like stance, get mad because i dont like what you do
>You must be a real hit with the ladies
I was a real hit with your mum
>Still sticking to the fact that you're anally devastated
lel so fucking ironically
its always the stancefags screaming "n-no whwy no one on /o/ like stance please stop saying its shit"
textbook damage control
>convinced with the fact that your inner 12 year olds are coming out and are buttmad you don't have it, nor have a car worth doing it to
this is the go to response for stance fags it seems.
but most lowered lowered/stretched bikes aren't running on tires never designed to fit on that rim, with the bottom throwing sparks everywhere. I just like to know I'm not gonna be killed by an unsafe vehicle losing control simply because of
>buttmad you don't have it
>actually thinking stance is something too complicated you should get buttmad about it
>nor have a car worth doing it to
>people stance civic and corollas
>implying they are special snowflakes worth of being stanced
You can't deny that a good majority of these cars have "more money than brains" in them
Which is cool in my opinion
Whether he drives it like a slug, trailers it, whatever. I don't care. It's his, I like looking at it. End of.
> Body work is the easiest fab skill
Hence why you search for vehicles with a good body. Cheaper to work on a car mechanically than body. Again, undermining. They make it look easy because they're professionals. Look at some extreme builds. The way they keep the body lining up like factory is amazing. This isn't your baseball bat fender roll job.
I know exactly what I'm talking about and yes I realize bippu doesn't necessarily mean stance. Although a lot of the Asians here in So Cal have their shit stanced and I see it at every damn show. I wish I had that kind of money to spend on mine. You do too deep down. You don't have to like it, but why put people down?
Oh yeah because you're behind a monitor
>but why put people down?
because its fucking unsafe retard
there is no reason why my life should be at risk because of a yoloswag faggot and his stance
>"lol it doesn't matter if you crash and kill someone's mother and children YOLOSWAG"
>You're on an auto enthusiast forum crying about safety
because we like cars we shouldn't care about safety? it's hardly a deciding factor when purchasing a vehicle, but doing something that would make both yourself and others at risk of harm is just fucking idiotic. As an enthusiast, I would prefer to make a vehicle more safe to drive so I can continue to not be fucking dead.
my point exactly. I don't care if you make a stance car...just keep the fucker off public roads, they have NO business there. Sure, I've spent some time modding my bike, but I have done NOTHING that effects the rideability of the machine even going to far as to retain the original fender after researching that it servs as a fork link. so yes, it peeves me when stance cars drive around with unsafe suspension geometry placed upon tires that are held on purely by tire pressure. You know what happens when a tire suddenly fails? bad shit. I sure as hell don't wanna be in the other lane your "yolo swag" mobile swerves into
>pic very related
Earlier I saw a thread of people recommending an anon a 350z, the deadliest car in terms of death rate.
It's not harmful at all. No worse than some faggot biking at 15 mph in the right lane.
>you like cars so that gives you the right to put people in danger xD!!
>driving on freeway
>see car bouncing up and down
>assume his shocks are probably blown
>all of the sudden loud as fuck BANG and cloud of smoke
>mfw his airbag suspension just popped
>sudden lack of suspension in one corner and a shitty driver send his car out of control
fortunately no one got fucked over it, as it was a fairly empty freeway.
>Earlier I saw a thread of people recommending an anon a 350z, the deadliest car in terms of death rate.
how is that the same as someone intentionally making their car perform worse and less safe?
Could have happened on a car with factory air suspension also and it does because people don't take care of their shit
I'm saying shouldn't you go do something about it inspector?
>I'm saying shouldn't you go do something about it inspector?
I have no fucking clue what you're on about. just because a lot of idiots crash in a 350, that doesn't mean fuck all.
crybaby stancefag detected
>n-no stop not liking what I like!!!
Obviously it does if people crashing in stanced vehicles means something to you enough to go full faggot and cry about muh safety and what about the chillunz!
I get it though, you don't like it because you don't have it
stop straw manning.you are attempting to refute the claim that stance cars are unsafe by taking the ridicilous position that since /o/ reccommended an "unsafe" car modifying a car to be unsafe is acceptable. Furthermore,death rate is also, a completely bogus statistic in this case because it implies causation, where only correlation exists. Also, the 350z may be an "unsafe car" but in it's stock form it was evaluated by government agencies etc unlike a stance car, whereas the tires alone are already taking notice from regulatory agencies based on some evidence of being fundamentally unsafe when mounted on oversized rims.
> Air suspension
> No benefit
Tell that to the top of the line luxury cars it's come factory with for years
You must know better than Maybach, Range Rover, Lexus, etc
I'm saying it's stupid ass shit like this that turns people into haters because they don't understand. Like I told you earlier. I don't have one, don't want one, cool to look at, but don't care. Love getting you all buttmad. I bet the fact that you don't own a relevant car nor work on it gets to you too. Seeing other people enjoy something must suck.
the thing is faggot
not all suspension modifcations are unsafe
having 15 degrees of camber all around is an unsafe modification, not because its a suspension modification alone, but because that specific type of suspension modification is unsafe
not all interior modifications are unsafe, but getting rid of the seatbelts is
stop being stupid, lrn to logic
>it just needs a TÜV certification.
we're not complaining about those cars at all. It's the stupid fucks that take ziplock bags and pretend it's suspension that's the fucking problem.
I will admit I started to ruin it a bit, but I wasn't expecting >>10873014 that guy to swallow and then shit out the hook, line still attached
>haha guys i was just pretending
textbook damage control
Then you read 80% of what I said, great. I wonder if you thought that would be a witty comment.
We can't even talk about tire sizes unless we have some fuckhuge sidewall and we're 20mm wider than anybody would want their tires
As are aftermarket ones, but shit happens. It's like saying alternators are tested, but they will fail in due time. The gravity of how hard and when they will fail all depends
>Then you read 80% of what I said
nope, im not going to read something a person who unironically uses the word haters has to say
posting meat to help us with the ebola-tier pandemia stance has become
>I'm saying it's stupid ass shit like this that turns people into haters
This is where he said he stopped.
>because they don't understand. Like I told you earlier. I don't have one, don't want one, cool to look at, but don't care. Love getting you all buttmad. I bet the fact that you don't own a relevant car nor work on it gets to you too. Seeing other people enjoy something must suck.
does that look like 80%?
>Stance fags trying to maths
It's people who are the problem in their local car scenes that ruin it for others.
It's already caught on, just like lowriders, like stretched motorcycles, it's here and nothing these faggots can do about it. Of course people will be buttmad about it in the beginning. Especially because they don't have it
oh no I was serious, my post >>10872992 here was satirical, but based in true belief, although admittedly is was supposed to "grind a few gears" if i may use a bad pun
Implying he didn't read above too
He kept reading anyway, you know the janny did. He has nothing better to do but read what I said and find another underaged looking anime girl for his picture.
Obviously too slow to figure out my green text is mocking what he said
> Stance fags trying to do math
Listen you tasteless faggot at least I can do the math when it comes to purchasing the desired offset wheel unlike your one-size-fits-all havin ass
>Especially because they don't have it
yeah, THAT'S why people don't like stance.
because they can't take a saw or torch to their springs.
>inb4 MUH PROPER STANCE COSTS THOUSANDS!
this just in: stance isn't new. People have hated it since it's been around. Retarded teenagers have been heating up their springs for as long as I can remember.
>As are aftermarket ones, but shit happens. It's like saying alternators are tested, but they will fail in due time. The gravity of how hard and when they will fail all depends
the issue is, they are tested in real world driving conditions in their specific installation. you seriously think and engineering team didn't evaluate how a stock car deals with a blown bag, where as a modified car is not in that situation
>Nobody does that
except the thousands of people who dont have money and love to follow trends
Nigger, they do all the engineering
What makes you think these companies skip the most vital step in making bags?
Shit just happens
Ball joints aren't supposed to catastrophically fail, but they do. So what is your point?
My point, there's a solid 5-10% of really clean cars in the scene and nobody does that believe me
>Retarded teenagers have been heating up their springs for as long as I can remember.
Accidentally, some of these cars became famous
so you're tellin me the average stance car has this sort of setup??
it's like taking a 747, with dozens of highly engineered and tested systems keeping it in the air safely, and comparing it with an ultralight somebody built in their barn.
ha ha took the words out of my >>10873278
mouth! im sure a properly modified car like the super duper airbagged' one in the video above >>10873265 is very safe, but it's a dangerous crap shoot with the others. and you notice how it's tires aren't stretched? yep. Exactly.
Motherfucker you replied to me saying 5-10%
Obviously I wasn't talking about the average stance car
Can you read?
No, what it's like is taking out the economy chair and putting a first class one in it's place. That's what it's like. Now get fucked.
Yeah, as are the people, but that's aside from the point. I know people with brand new AMGs stanced and shit.
>I know people with brand new AMGs stanced and shit.
OK, that's too much for even myself
>check out muh boeing!
>it's got wings, so it's the same thing as a b1 lancer!
ITT: Stance spergs and anti-stance spergs derail a perfectly good thread that had not a goddamn thing to do with stance in the first place.
Can't you niggerkings go have a dick-waving contest somewhere else?
Rich Asians man
They get off on the fact that they have it and you don't and won't for quite some time. I see it no different than the stanced Lexus LS' people have. Those are quite abundant around here
How is that relevant to my argument? Read, idiot. I'm the one saying most of them are massive shitheaps done incorrectly.
Yeah because you know there's totally senior citizens who look forward to coming on /o/
yeah that dude's most likely full of shit.
my mom did grow up in the 60s though, and she said her 2nd(?) car was one she got for dirt cheap that a guy heated the springs on.
she didn't know he heated the springs, one of her friends told her after she got it that that was why it rode so horribly.
OP 10/10 taste. I am currently rocking staggered MB Battles and AVS Model 5s (model 5s are temporary rollers because of fucked tires on my battles). I am also a huge fan of Blitz 03s, Weds Cerberus IIs, Enkei RP03s and Rays 57 Extremes
>TheEvoXFreak appears in any thread
i fucking love shitposting with ausbros
Looks like the bead is properly seated, so that's a plus.
Personally I can't justify using 9 inch wide rims if you're not fitting thick ass rubber to match, but that actually doesn't look terrible.

Super advan racing version II. The only 3ish spoke wheels i love.
poastin god tier stuff
New two piece.
I love miatas, you can't fuck with me
I still roll with my factory Enkei's. I might get some black 5 spoke wheels after I paint the car black.
What you guys think of these rims.
They were already on the car when i bought it a few weeks ago.
probably these 19" LM-GT4s. 10.5" in the rear. Very hard to find in the US as they had to be ordered from retailers in Japan and shipped to the US.
I found out today while getting new Yokohamas put on my ride the 2 of my wheels are bent. Where should I start as far as style and price for wheels. Keep in my im a baller on a budget
Rocking some Motegi Touge's at the moment. I want to get some new wheels, don't know what. What ya'll think?
Has anyone bought a set of wheels then absolutely hated them? What do you do then? That the only thing I'm worried about when looking at wheels to buy.
