I just bought a set of OEM 1994 Mazda RX-7 wheels, and was wondering what I will have to do to get them on my 89 Supra. Do I need spacers or will they bolt right on?

Any advice on this?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

iirc they bolt right on and the offset is just right.

they will bolt right on.

you may need different lugs tho. there isnt much clearance b/w the stud and wheel for the stock semi truck lugs. also, they use an angled seat lug, need to check that as well.

the bolt right on but they look like crap. I have them on my supra right now.
It's a little too curvy for the supra, but it is nice and light weight. :bigthumb:

they will need centrick hub wheels spacer's cause of the tappered hub they have

the back will sink in a bit so getting wide spacer in the back will fix that prob

hmm. ive read this 5 times now and still dont see where he asked who liked them. he just bought some so i guess HE likes them. why do people insist on throwing in their 2 cents on something that is personal preference and not even something that was asked?

about the spacers. spacers arent needed per se, he is talking about the hub centric rings which dont space the wheel out any. there are several companies that sell them online and ebay. ive looked for the size needed but havent been able to find them. they arent required either, as i know several running them and never had a problem. heck the majority of the aftermarket wheels arent hubcentric. of course it would be better to have them, but again not required.
i'll see if i can find the size in my notes so you can look around.

They're 16x8

Full lock on the fronts will rub without a spacer

The rim sits 1" more in the fender, but it's an 8" rim, so it's like a wider, better looking, lightweight sawblade.

Mine are custom, I didn't like the plain silver, and I wanted under 14 lbs, so I grinded and polished them.

Make sure you got the reenforced rims, the earlier are prone to cracking. You need to check the lug holes from the inside of the rim. Search www.rx7club.com for more info on that.

This is what they look like on stock suspension. I think they would look much better on a lowered car. IN the second picture you can see that they don't need spacers really as they aren't any more sunk in than sawblades.
