I really like these wheels EMS-007 16x8 -20offset or a 15x8

Its getting harder and harder to find nice wheels at a nice cost.

Those look nice. That should fill up the rear fender flare a good bit. I'm running a 16x9 (0) rear and it's still inside the flare a good 1". Fronts are 16x8 (0) with 1.5" longer control arm and a 8mm spacer and I poke a good bit, but that should fit inside still on a stock LCA

You guys have it easy now finding wheels. 15-20 years back there was only custom available. Most of those Chinese cheap wheels are made in batches now. They make a bunch and discontinue them.

I'm not a big fan of replica wheels, but they are great for those of us who don't want to worry about things life theft or damage. That being said, I guess a local state-side (US) company seems to have picked up those Work Equip03 reps from Malaysia and they seem to come in a pretty good sizing for 15s...

Hey Guys,

I'm wondering if 15x7et25 will work on a 1982 Celica and a 1984 Supra? I'm wanting to put 205-50-15 tires on the wheel. I'm trying to find a wheel that work on my track Celica and my track E30 and a track miata.

This would just be for track days, so ultimate performance is the not the goal of this wheel/tire combo, just something I can swap from car to car when I'm at the track.

Thanks!

Ben

The only way to make that work is spacers. I wouldn't recommend those for track use unless you are running quality hubcentric slip on spacers with ARP studs, bolt on spacers are sketchy as frig. If you already have similar offset wheels toss em on and see how bad it is, likely rubbing issues on the inside, and will need like 20mm spacer to get it workable.

Thank you, yeah I don't want to run spacers on track wheels. I currently only have 15x7et25 wheels in the 4x100 bolt pattern so I'm not able to do a test fit.

Ghetto lowered in the front in the above pictures, heated front springs.

The rear ST lowering springs and Bilstein shocks.

Since the above pictures, the front of the car is a little higher now, as I was finally able to put the ST springs on the front.

What I have on there now is just your basic kumho ecsta in 225 50 15. however recently I did find some other tires that go to 265 50 15 which I plan on putting on the rear eventually, you can check tirerack, but discount tires has the kumhos for cheaper

The 225/50 have the very mildest of stretches, doesn't look goofy, allows for more low, but has a slightly harsher ride than if they had more bubble.

Been rocking them for over a year and am satisfied. There are more options, but they're basically race tires for that, and similar sizes

Has anyone heard of Klutch wheels? Just came across these doing a lazy sunday morning ebay search for wheels to see if anything new was out there. Looks like they do custom offsets for what seems to be unsustainably cheap IMO.

Decent 80's style turbo wheels, not quite right for P types but close for the front: KM16 silver

O RLY.

These too!

16x9 +18, 16x8 +15. Comes in 4 different colors. $220

Similar sizes, offsets for these too...

These guys seem to have their location on lock down, but I saw Euro plates on their FB page and with the Republik spelling I'm guessing they are in Russia, Poland, or Czech etc. Which isn't a deal breaker, just explains the prices. But I'm sure shipping is brutal unless they have a North American distributor that gets big orders in regularly.
