Alloy choices

Post by ABleach » 19/03/17 18:22

Hi there,

I am finally free of mechanical issues and can now work on cosmetics, currently i have the stock 15's on my rev 2 with some lovely Toyo TR1's. I would love to stick with 15's however with them being staggered i can't find any to save my life!

This being the first set of alloys purchased i am a bit clueless, any advice would be welcome,

Thank you in advance

tyres for 15 and 16" wheels are becoming very hard to find in the sizes you need for the MR2, better to go for 17" wheels IMO

Hi mate, cheers for your reply,

Okay it will take a bit of saving but i guess that is the best decision, where would you get a staggered 17" setup? cheers (sorry completely newby with this)

There's plenty of used options around try the for sale pages on imoc, the driftworks forum or eBay. Unless you're very specific with what you want and get them brand new or imported then you may need deep pockets

Just jinxed yourself there man. There's nearly always something that could be done to these cars. Nothing as bad as 'classic british' or &%*^$ italian, but they are getting on in age!

Looked at changing from the stock 15" a few times over the years but really couldn't find the perfect replacement.

Really was not interested in putting in spacers and stuffing about with center rings either and then throw in the staggered wheels and it gets pretty tough. The stock 15inch wheels were a direct bolt on replacement for the stock 14inch wheels and thats as far as I got. The car is no longer a daily driver so its fitted with race rubber so moving to 17inch would be a waste of time now anyway.

The real problem will be when the 15inch tyres totally dry up and you have no choice but to shift.
