So I wanna get my wheels done by Love20bee in Cali. He says I can get what ever offsets I want.
He can make them stepped and 3 piece.
$1800 for the set.

My question is...what offsets to use ? +0 in front and +10 in rear? 8in wide?
I want these done ASAP, in the process of 2jz-ge VVTi and ths would look better than my XXR with spacers.
Can't figure it out...I

I have 16 x 8 zero offset all the way around with 245/45 tires. The nice thing is I could rotate the tires/wheels for even treadwear. I bought them way back when I was doing some autocross and could go through a set of tires pretty quick. But that's kind of a moot point now with a classic car as the tires will dry rot decades before the tread wears down, if ever. The bad is that for pure appearance, they could used tucked in little at the front and spaced out a little at the back. I don't know exactly how much to tell you tho. Just don't go any wider than 8" because there are few choices for a wide tire in 16" and that will probably only get worse or none in another ten years. Looking forward to seeing them done and on your car.

If you like the fitment of the xxr's just go with those measurements. 8" +10 up front is best for performance clearance or 0 if you want hellaflush. 8" +0 with 20mm spacer out back, or -20mm offset if you don't want to run a spacer. 17's with those offsets or similar mean you can run wider width rear and have tire selection to use it.

Saw the Instagram post from Love20Bee and checked out their site, the lippage looks awesome. Eager to see pics of the result.

I have 17x8.5 +10 front and 18x10 +16 rear, although my rear subframe is heavily modified for extra positive camber adjustment with the car lowered, so more like +12 in the rear would be a good fitment with the stock mount points.

I just got word mine should be done "hopefully this month" (Shipped on 4/6/20). That would make a 2 month lead time on these. He did say the welded ones would have a ~3wk lead time. Just an FYI for anyone wanting these.
What is the process, do you send them your stock 14 inch wheels and they do everything else? Do they refinish the stock ones while they are creating the three piece wheel? Thanks for any insight. Interested to see if anyone ever did these REVERSED i.e. with a powder coated black stock centers, polished hoops/lip and the thin reveal that is usually painted black in the stockers as polished alum. That would be pretty slick, especially on a Black MKII.

I contacted him first before sending him the wheels. Mainly to get the correct shipping address and to ensure they would be tracked somehow. I contacted them through Facebook.
They "will clean up the faces". To me that means they will be cleaned but not refinished I did not ask further as to what it exactly entails when they clean them. I
I am not sure about the color options they have.

E-mailed Love20bee, they replied right away... Unfortunately due to overwhelming deamnd, they are booked up until August, says alot about the popularity of the MKII. Glad he's doing great business, will try again later. Have to keep roling on my stockers, my 17" ROH Snypers or my 15" Enkei 92's for a little while longer.

Definately send pics when you get them and especially when they are mounted on the MKII.

Sorry to hear that. I was hoping these would pan out well. How is the Quality? It seems like they may have had growing pains from popularity... hopefully they work through this and are able to be reliable source.

They turned out quite well. I had them recondition the wheels. They stand up to the 2ft test. Up close I can see where the paint lines are a little rough. This is only one wheel. The rest are pretty much in identical condition. I am waiting to see if I can get my car registered before I put rubber on them. I moved to Japan and the registration process is very convoluted. He said that he did a 16x8.5 +19 on the rears It will be interesting to see how they fit. The offset discussion with him was quite difficult. Eventually it got to the point of trusting his judgement. He did have a Celica GTS to confirm fitment and said he had access to a MKII Supra as well.

So I've seen these wheels from Love20bee two ways. With the fasteners like you have and without.

Question is...do they weld the hoops to the stock centers or are those fasteners holding your hoops to the stock centers? If the fasteners hold them, I wonder how the versions without the fasteners are done?
Do you mind sharing the cost of your wheels? If not I understand.
Thanks!

The fasteners hold the hoops onto the centers. Otherwise they are welded on.
Because of how long it took to get my wheels done he worked with me on the cost so what I paid is not what you will be able to get. You should be able to message them to get a quote. I would expect something in the ~$2000 to $2500 range for just the sizing. I paid extra to have them refinished.
