Ok, we have a ton of info. on the MKII. But, MK1 info is scattered out all over the place. The lug pattern for the 1979-1981 Supra is 4x114.3mm which is very common. Stock MK1 aluminum wheels are 14 x 5.5" and have a +27mm offset. This is very close to the aluminum wheel used on the L Type MKII. Remember the P Type MKII wheels are 0 - +10 mm (Info. from Chris Eng) in offset and will stick out more than many people like. So, let's get some pics of MK1's and what they are wearing.
1st pic.: XXR 16x7 +15mm offset, 215/55/16 tires


2nd pic: Enkie 14" 92's W/215-60 tires (+20 mm offset from my 20 year old memory)


3rd pic: MKII P-Type wheels. BF 225/60 tires (very similar spacing to the above 92's)


4th pic: I have seen these wheels on 3 MK1's now all with the same color/decal combo. They appear to be the same specs as the normal aluminum MK1 wheels.

I'm no expert on rims, but is it possible they are something from KMC ?

OK.

Here is a sample of MkI photos I've picked up over the years - don't know wheel details on many of them. I've put notes by a few of them.

MkII 14" L-type wheels (82-84)



MkII 15" L-type wheels (85)









Enkei 92s (14x?)






15" Cressida rims















The Toyota MkI Pace Car (14x7s with 225 rubber if memory serves)

MK1 Wheels

Hi:

New to the site and contemplating on buying a 79 Supra. For the wheels, what's the widest I could fir without major mods? If I go 15x8, 9 or 10 on the rear and 15x7 on front, will this work? same for a 16" wheels???


Thanks,

Don't know much other than what I have used. Back in the day I ran 235/60/14 tires on the rear with no rubbing issues. They were 9.2" wide and 25.1" tall. It now has 7" wide wheels running 215/55/16 tires. They are 25.3" tall and 8.5" wide. No rubbing with these either. I think 8" wide wheels would be no problem.

you guys made a couple mistakes, most of the pics that you guys wrote "l-type wheels" are actually "p-type wheels"

like this one, and there is another too
