    Ohh yeah those are nice! I think that those wheels painted the satin black of your super VR-4 body kit would be perfect! Is your Super's sideskirts and front canards painted black? I can't remember

    on a super vr-4 the canards, side skirts and rear bumper are all in satin black. Hence my thoughts about black wheels looking just right on one.

    cool, i reckon it would look good the same, especially those rims in 17x9", gives them some nice deep spokes :D

    yeah, and a 35mm offset with 235/45/17 tyres will look very aggressive too

    I was conservative and bought 17 by 7's. I really didn't want to have to muck around getting them on, and I really need this car to be a daily drive that can handle speed bumps, steep driveways, work sites etc.

    I don't think I'll even drop the ride hight, but, you never know.

    I have no idea.. Too many options.
    I don't dislike the standard BBS that are coming on mine, but 17's would be nice.

    Wheels

    Im thinking about these two wheels in 19x8.5, had heaps of looks at Tempe and other suppliers in aus but cant find anything that I really like, cant stand chrome, Holden freaks can keep that.

    You will have to host them elsewhere, like on an account at www.photobucket.com

    the thumbnails become full size when you click on them anyway.

    I take it that it's the standard Mitsubishi 5x114.3mm stud pattern? I wonder how my Magna VR-X Series II rims will look on a Silver VR-4 and if it's the right offset?

    Mmmmm Model 5s.

    I love them, and loved them on my Supra. These days though, I'm all about dish.
