Specs on the rims. Where? Total price out the door? Pics?
I got a set of Works VS XX reps.. ESR Wheels SR01 18x10 +25 Hyper black 849.00 with tires mounted and balanced. Was going to get some wedsSports wheels, But decided to save the rest of the money towards a W58 5 speed swap for the sc400.
Today I changed the oil on my SC300. 183,451 and put Mobil 1 fully synthetic 5w30 in it with a Toyota filter. It had a Valvoline filter on it and probably Valvoline conventional oil that still was very clean coming out. Probably due to the fact that it likely didn't have more than 1500 miles on it when I drained it, but it's been in there at least 6 months and I was bored so I hit Wal Mart up last night for the 5 quart jug and a spare quart and a new oil container since the screw on caps ALWAYS break on those things so I had to get a new one.
Hopefully there weren't any tiny slow leaks that now get amplified by the synthetic but I'm really only running the engine until spring when I put my 1JZ in it. Then I'll switch it to Amsoil, just like I like in my 300ZX Twin Turbo...but for a daily driver that the trans might start slipping on again if the filter and fresh trans fluid didn't quite fix all the way, I didn't want to spend nearly $90 on an Amsoil filter and oil. It's $70ish on my 300ZX and it only takes 3 5/8ths quarts of oil.

I picked up a set of '94-04 Mustang Cobra wheels today as a bit of a project. 17x9 (50 lb 1 oz with full tread), +24 offset, 245/45-17 (exact match for stock height). Two have nearly new tires and two are completely bald. One of the bald ones was suffering from chrome peeling and not holding air, so the plan was to put the two good ones on the back and get the other two de-chromed and put some of my 225/50-17 tires on the front. Yeah, that's a waste of a 9" wide wheel, but I have six good tires in that size.
As it turns out, one of the good ones wasn't holding air, either... 5+ psi hissed out of the inner lip within a few minutes of filling it up. Boy do I ever hate chrome. They always start flaking and lose their seal eventually... The guy bought them for a big trailer and never put them on once he realized they didn't fit, then left them sitting since the summer, so there was no telling what condition they were truly in.
I'll probably test fit the lone good one tomorrow to see how it fills out the wheel well in the back, before doing any work on them. I suspect/hope it'll be excellent. If my hunch is right, they could be a good alternative to the much less attractive (IMO) Supra TT wheels that are 4.5 lbs heavier, albeit for 20mm more tire width and 0.5" more rim width, for those wanting big brake clearance.
