Hey boys and girls, got myself a 96 supra non-turbo on its way from japan on a ship called the blue hawk, eta bristol 2nd Nov. woohoo!
Very excited to say the least, not sure where to start with tailoring it, mod-ing it etc etc
definitely gonna get new wheels initially, thinking of a set of 18" black alloys, just wondering what dimensions i should be looking at, can i buy any alloy wheel with tyres and it'll work or do i need to be careful about wheel tyre combinations???? and what about the width of the tyre??? any recommendations or suggestions would be very helpful as a bit clueless here! :search:
and out of interest what are the standard speakers on the supra like, are they any good or do they sound like boy george blowing bubbles into a toy trumpet?!
cheers

As for aftermarket alloys you need to keep the size as close to stock so as not to throw your speedo out. I have 8" on the front 235/40/18 and 9" on the rear with 255/35/18. They work for me
