    Yeah, i'll probably start/stay with 1 coil on each. I'll cut off those bump stops too for sure

    Does anyone know if Meister S1 rims will fit over cressy brakes? I've seen pictures of the rims on AE86's but i am not sure if the two cars have varying brake sizes..

    The generally accepted norm is 1.5 coils front, .75 rear and I'd leave at least part of the bump stops. If the rims are 14s and it's an 85-86 they'll fit, if it's an 87-88, no, you have to run 15s.

    yep, he's been one of my brother's friends since high school.

    e/ Work wheels are crazy expensive. I might buy supra's temporarily until I can save up good money for a nice set D:

    Searching isn't showing me any helpful results, before you ask.

    firstly, I'm getting adapters off ebay to change from 4x114.3 bolt pattern to 5x114.3. They say it adds 2" (50mm) thickness. I have a choice between 15 and 37 offset for these wheels. Which would be the better bet? I'm still kind of lost as to offset so I figured I would ask that as well.

    however, Will 8 inch wide wheels (with some tire stretch, not sure how much) with 15 offset fit under the fenders? Will I need a fair amount of stretch, or will I need to roll the fenders?

    Any help appreciated.

    rolling the fenders is no where near as hard as it sounds. its not complicated body work, and if you take your time, its pretty hard to screw up.


    15x8 +15 should fit just fine, presuming the car isnt slammed, and you arent running 4x4 tires. you may have to bend the lips up a little bit on the fenders, but i doubt that.

    In Toyota, we rust.

    wheels come 16" smallest ;__;

    I'll be getting lower profile tires and stretching them (tyrestretch.com for reference ;]) just for looks regardless. I guess i'll find out when I get all the parts here, just what I need to modify.
    it's a pretty bold wheel choice though, I have never seen another cressida with them.. all about experimenting, right?

    I don't eve know where to start.

    You can't figure out wheel spacing, size or if they fit. You are cutting your springs, and you want to do the most difficult swaps.

    How about instead of "saving up" for baller rims you save up for **** i duno maybe some proper suspension.

    You really think running a 2" spacer will work ?

    Do some math, find stock offset, then subtract the new wheel offset, then at 2" to that offset. If the offset isnt close to stock your lol.


    You are doing it wrong.

    Fix the oem bits first, **** like bushings and brake lines. Then some suspension and tires. Ive driven in jimmys ****ing 300whp cressie ****bucket. Thing bounces down the highway and handles like a bag of rayne. You are putting the cart ahead of the horse. The last thing you need in a 20 year old automatic family hauler is 2000$ rims.

    You can put ur comments here.

    PS: 2" spacers are abusive and I feel unsafe.

    lol i'm not going to do any swaps. that was me being ambitious with zero money to back it up. I haven't cut my springs yet, I don't want to do that until I get my wheels on and see how it is.
    I want to do wheels first, it looks like absolute garbage with the OEM wheels. The paint and all is nice so it will look rather decent. I'm definitely not autoxing it or anything, i'm DDing it and want something that will look good so imo better suspension and etc isn't a priority yet. Rims aren't that expensive either, they're $1300 all 4 with tires included. $200 for adapters. After I do the wheels i'm cutting the springs myself at school (probably 1.25 up front and about .75 in the rear if it has the same ride height) THEN moving on to better suspension, do some engine mods, new exhaust since mine actually has no muffler anymore. etc.

    Regardless I could change my mind at any point, buy a set of supra's and blow my money on my engine

    e/ I did the same math as it showed on the wheel adapters ebay page. OEM wheels are +20 offset, so add the 50 from the adapters and it would be 70mm. Minus 37 from the wheels and I would have a massive +33mm? I'm going to go google this
