If u dont mind me asking whats the rim offset and tire specs , looks wide, meaty and perfectly tucked in the wheel wells.
thanks , the work wheels are a second set, and yes they are 315's in the back and 285 up front. standard supra fitment on the wheels.

WOW so no rubbing issues.... may i ask what offset ? Did you have fenders rolled ? The reason i ask is because i have a +40 offset and 295/35/18 in the rear and on hard bumps or major dips in the road i periodically touch or scrape . Maybe the its 150k miles on the stock shocks need to be replaced, thats why i am trying to choose a set of coilovers that wont sacrifice my comfort . If you are ever interested in selling any of you wheels or any parts you maybe be changing please let me know as i am sure i will be interested as the level of quality/cleanliness of your car makes me feel completely comfortable purchasing a used item from you anyday.

not sure on the offset because CCW does not disclose that for their wheels. its somewhere like 45-50 i belive. but no rubbing at all, all fenders are rollled flat. there is actually still room for a bigger tire or a 5mm spacer in the rear. i wish they made a 325/35/17 tire, but no one does

Ok i did some research and see that CCW does not give offsets but specific fitment based on the car, so i guess based on supra fitment that would be +50....if you ever want to get rid of any of your wheels please let me know i would be definetly interested ...or any other part for that matter .

I love how you started this thread in 2006, and answer your own question in 2013 seven years later. That's dedication man. Car looks amazing, if I can find those wheels in great condition I might do the same, but as of now I'm leaning toward the Lexus G Spider wheels. Which Willowood brake kit is that?
