I don't mean to be a naysayer but I still very seriously doubt that yours are for a coupe... I could be wrong though.

They look so much longer though. redface.gif

Perhaps it was dry turning, or my new contacts. Who's to say? tongue.gif

Haha, well I was a little bit naughty and bought them from interstate, so I don't have them yet tongue.gif

I got them for a steal though, $355 on auction with 4x Yokohama Ecos ES300 (admittedly the cheap ones) that are only 7 months old and the condition of the rims is amazing, only one little scratch of gutter rash on one rim! The seller is really busy though and hasn't been very fast to respond, so I sent him through the $95 for shipping yesterday and hopefully they get sent by the end of the week maybe? tongue.gif (For comparison, generally one set shows up in Australia every 6-8 weeks and generally costs $550 in not necessarily as good condition and with no tyres, and I have never seen a set for sale in my state tongue.gif).

Brisbane Celica Club Cruise today - I was the only 6GC though :'(



And bought a pair of +25mm spacers for the new wheels (rear). I didn't want that big but I got them cheap ($50 second hand off a mate - supposedly Hubcentric when he bought them but he has his doubts), I'll probably go down to 20mm bolt on for the rear and 10mm on the front at some stage.

25 mm spacers for the rear will be good for a set of Caldina rims if you want them flush. I would like to have 15 or 20 mm for my rear. I still tuck in the rear.

I'm not sure if I do want them flush or not, that's my problem tongue.gif I just love the way yours looks as it is!

They look pretty awesome wink.gif

+25mm spacers on the back. Unfortunately I have already cut the new tyres because I was scrubbing on my STOCK SPRINGS!!! -.- I had to turn around and take my stock wheels out of the back and now it only scrubs with lateral load, rather than every bump. Also, one tyre came with a complimentary nail in it, but is still holding air.

Grip... Gone from 205 to 215 width.... But lost soo much grip :'( What happens when you go from $250 per tyre UHP's to $125 per tyre base model Yokohama Eco's.

Hard to see, but I also fitted my SSIII front grill.
