Rev 5 Turbo Alloy Wheel Help

Post by Bri_001 » 07/01/10 19:05

Hi , i'm new to the site . I have a Rev 5 Turbo with standard wheels and i want to fit either the 5 spoke rev3 alloys ( if they fit ) or 17" 5 spokes . Does anyone know of any staggered 17" alloys on the market that would fit and possible pics . Sorry if this has been discussed before , but im starting to go mad trying to find wheels :annoyed: . Thanks for your help.

Moved to Wheels and Tyres section ;)

First step is to check this information thread: http://www.mr2oc.co.uk/forums/59/41923.html

Secondly yes the rev2-4 wheels with the fatter 5 spokes fit, but please don't make your car look worse by swapping rev5 alloys for them! :laughing

I still think standard rev5s look better:

Image

Or better still, a nice subtle 17" rim (TSW Heat on mine and then Tinker2's old car):

Image

Or even go the whole hog and get some decent lightweight racing alloys (TE37s in this case):

Image

There, I think that's enough of my car history / pic-whoring for now :laughing

OK you have made your point and we can be friends again ... even though I didn't see an apology :)

Still don't agree that the rev5s look better though. I had a set on my first NA many years ago and never liked them. Down to personal taste really.

At least we agree which colour is the fastest :th:

They've had that set a while - i posted them up about 9 months ago. And they'd fit Mick ;) ;)

Might be worth an offer - $1600 delivered to UK say?
