    Scott, thanks man. Are you talking about my red supra or my brothers anthracite one?

    my ren. supra has 18" XXR 521's on it in a gunmetal color. I dont think they offer different offset for supras but i believe its +25 front and back is what I bought (ebay ) tires are crapy Dunlops at 265 in the rear.

    Hey, thanks a bunch! Yes, I meant your red car. I bought a Ren Red '98 6-spd last year, and painted the TT wheels about the same shade of gunmetal, but I am beginning to have wheel lip envy! If people start telling you they thought they seen your car stalking the ATL area, don't be upset! ;-) But again, beautiful car! What are the widths of those wheels if you don't mind me asking? Also, thank you for the awesome picture you took of my RHD MKIII. It's my new screen saver! Thanks again in advance, and take care man!

    Roman,
    You should be the official AutoFair photographer. The images you capture artfully portray the beauty of any automobile. If you're interested I could do some asking as to who would be the correct person to contact at the speedway. Thanks again for displaying your Supra and supplying the community with so many great pictures.

    CHEERS!!
    Scott

    Scotty, I think they are 8.5 and 9.5 but dont hold me to it... i dont think they come in different sizes/offsets other than diameter but as you can see they fit damned well. And i will not be upset those also come in a black that i kinda liked and thought about trying out some time.


    Scott, first of all, thank you for putting in all the effort and hard work to make all of this happen twice a year! The pics wouldnt be possible w/out the work you but it Second of all, thanks for the compliment man and you are more than welcome for the pics! I feel very passionate about my photography and love doing it. As far as doing something like for the speedway/autofair, i would absolutely love to have the opportunity. Being a fulltime engineer doesn't really give me the opportunity of getting myself out there to get the kind of exposure i would want and at a show with so many awesome rides I think I could do pretty well at

    Sorry for all the bother man. I tried to send you a PM, but your box was full .. It's just that wheel sizes, and tire sizes wear my brain out when looking for a great combination. You said your rears were 265's. Are they a 40 series? 35 series? Are the fronts still the stock 235/45 combination? Are these 17", or 18"? I just want to make sure I don't waste any money, and get the right thing the first time if I do it! Thanks again in advance, and again, beautiful car, and awesome pics!

    Roman,
    Great thread...I love the pictures. You and I have a lot in common! I am an avid shutter-bug too, trying to get it going full time, but I am sure you know how that is!?! Real jobs pay more and have better benefits than our 'hobbies'...lol I am in the High Point area here in NC and just bought a BMW M3 with a 1JZ swap and have been browsing the Supra forum here to get some info on it. I bought it with one of the turbos blown, so it is a work in progress. Anyway, GREAT pictures!
