Fresh off the lifts.

Here are some pics of some wheels with the same specs for the Celica Supra. These are the Forgeline LS wheels with optional Suzuka center caps. The centers are silver.
Front: 17x8 +10
Rear: 17x8 -10
Tires: Hankook K102 215/50R17

These are 2 piece wheels with forged centers.





Let me know what you guys/gals think and if there is enough interest I will try and get a group-buy organized. You can get these wheels in 16" as well.

wow, beautiful rims ! I can attest to the quality and service by Forgeline.
My set of RS rims were awesome, and Forgeline folks worked with me to make the little center caps bulge outward rather than dish inward toward the hub, other wise the grease cap on the front hubs would not allow the center caps to mount. I still have the beautiful center caps, a souvenier, since my wheels were stolen a few years back. I know those wheels by James will not be cheap, but the quality is tops !

I am working on the pricing (told them What the group buy pricing on the Braid wheels were.)

Color options:
Polished lip with Black, black metallic, silver, gunmetal, or polished centers. The center cap will remain polished. (Custom colors will be extra.)

Offsets - nearly limitless.

These are built hubcentric for the vehicle.

Forgelines are built in Dayton, Ohio. And yes custom offsets do present some issues. But as long as the centerbores and bolt pattern remain the same I think they can offer them within a reasonable time frame. As soon as the boss gets back, I will discuss with them what they will consider in terms of the group buy.

The car is my Boss' actually. He's been wanting one for his wife for a long time. The car is basically a mint stock 85 Celica GT-S Convertible. The boot is a factory piece. The only mods to date are the front springs, Raybrig MSR H4 headlamp conversions, and of course wheels and tires. He has an intake filter ready to install. We will be installing an exhaust system in the near future. (Want it to be a simple quiet one since she drives around town with their kids. And she gets enough race sounds at the track when he races.) Told him about turbo-ing the car but he wants to keep it simple. (Mind you his wife has driven his 6-spd mk4 turbo without issue.)

Those wheels are gorgeous on that car!!! If you can throw something together for a price anywhere close to the Braid pricing, that is an incredible deal! WOW! Makes me want to get another mk2 so I can get those wheels!

i cant believe those wheels never showed up somewhere...meaning that not many cars out there would fit that size wheel and im pretty sure youre the only one that had 17" 4x114.3 (0) offset Forgeline wheels ever made.
