I’ve been waiting on these new rear wheels for some time now to make it from Asia. They are finally here! I bought the R888’s to mount on them because I knew they would run wide, and I didn’t want too much stretch. The result is near perfect fitment, and you cannot get this car to break loose with these tires. I am in love. Oh btw the wheels are from 6UL/949racing and weigh in at 13.8 pounds.
The car is dirty so more pics will come later on!
I told my GF today getting new tires was one of my favorite things. She said, “that is really cute!” It’s the truth. I’ve always liked new treads, and I’ve never been one to skimp out when it comes to tires. That’s where the name Grippy comes from. That’s one place I feel that it’s hard to go weak on. I’ve recently been stacking tires for my STI and E30. The STI will be running Dunlop Star Specs, and the E30 is currently on Dunlops and will be running a Toyo R888/R1R combo for track/fun wheels.
I found a good deal on these on ebay, and I was looking for something that will only be a medium stretch on a 15×10. These will definitely grip hardcore. I am hoping the shoulder isn’t too high. They look tall just from eyeballing them, but I will compare soon. You got to love a 8.5″ width from just a 205.
The wheels and tires are in for project E30, and I’m very happy with how they look. The gun metallic color has so many shades in it depending on the light which is a plus. They are 15×8 +4 with a 205/50/15 Dunlop Direzza DZ101 mounted nicely on them. I test fitted them on the E30. I had to angle the car into the driveway to get the wheel to tuck up since I don’t have the suspension on it yet to get an idea of how it’ll look. As you can see they fit pretty nicely. I’ll need a slight roll to allow them to breathe a little. Then I can start throwing the car around with them on.
