skip: my definition of breaking the bank is spending more than $200 per wheel. even $200 per wheel is very expensive to me especially because im heading to college in august. hope this helps. thanks

Slip: how would i go about doing that? would be as simple as just sanding the rims down and painting them? what would the process be? thanks

Unfortunately even on newer cars it is hard to find good "quality" wheels under $200. Heck they want $150 for a cheapo 17" Motegi wheels at Pepboys. Your best bet in that price range is to shop for used wheel. Old school Datsun Zcars are the closest fitment wise to MkII. I would recommend keeping an eye out in the For Sale section at the hybridz site. For new wheels about the cheapest place for wheel that fit are going to be Panasports (~250) , Revolution wheels (~$300), Centerlines ($200+). Most custom fits wheels are going to start in the low $400 range and can go up to 1000+ a wheel. About the only wheels you can find that cheap for a MkII are going to be Eagle wheels. They have like 2 or 3 15x7s that should fit. Unfortunately the styles are a little bland to say the least. HTH

i'll assume you know what offsets and bolt pattern to look for. looks like you're gonna have to find a used set of wheels for that budget. go to the "parts for sale" section on this website http://www.club4ag.com i usually find wheels there that fit our cars. goodluck.

i don't understand how anyone woudl want to swap out P-type wheels from their MkII, with the exception of black-with-silver-lip meshies. P-type wheels kick ass.

you need at least a 15x7 to fit a decent performance tire for a mk2. I agree, ptype rims rock, and they look good, they're the perfect rim... for an AE86. But thats just my opinion. :)

Hey Parker, theres a thread around about some 19 & 18 inch rims in Ontario going for below 200 bucks a wheel. Tires will break the bank with them though and fitment on the front might take a bit of work. Also I thought the centerlines were about 170 US each before shipping?

The centerlines are about 180 each for 16 inch or 160 for 15 inch. You do need to buy longer studs for these.

a 6.5 is a little on the skinny side, unless your just going for a stock performance straight replacment wheel for an ltype rim.
