The XXR 521's are perfect like everyone else is saying and I totally agree. You got a whole red/black theme thing going on anyway. Paint the hood and targa top to match with the rest of the body (obvious), paint the mesh on the TRD hood and in the Do-Luck Bumper intakes black to give it an OEM'ish look, some stock side markers (amber). Cause as great as the white ones look sometimes they just remind me of something from eBay. Some 97-98 front bumpers markers and you're set. I'm also assuming you're painting your calipers too before the wheels go on or once you got it back home. Looking good though man I must say.


Cheers,

Kirk

Bolt pattern is correct (5 x 114.3), but I think most people that get 10" rear wheels stay around the +40-50 offset range. I'm not completely sure about this though, so you might want to wait for another person to chime in ;P

So I need to update:

I am Doing a 93 to 97-98 Turn Signal Conversion.

Here is what I need for the Conversion From MVP (Thanks to 2HIGH~PSI for link)
http://www.mvpmotorsports.com/Templa...466&SearchYN=N

And here is what it look like.


And here is a Step-By-Step guide for how to do it, Again, From MVP (And again thanks to 2HIGH~PSI for link)
http://www.mvpmotorsports.com/mercha.../tsinstall.htm

Now, This is what it looks like from Toyota.


Heres my confusion, Do I need both, The kit from MVP, and The Kit From Toyota?
The kit from Toyota comes with the Nut Nut Back (2), Lens and Housing (3), Signal lamp Signal lamp Back (4), Clearance lamp Clearance lamp Back (5), AND the Socket (6).

NOW, according to the guy at toyota, either the left or right assembly doesnt come with (6) so that confuses me... and should i get all of that AND the kit from MVP...? this is where I am lost. so please help.
Thanks guys.

the rims will fit but will most likely need rolling or cutting in the rear to prevent rubbing based on tire sizes. not much of a big deal to have them fit right. i am aslo going with 521's with the red rivets.
Yeah, im going to do the red rivets i think and paint them the same color as my car. or just get the chrom rivets and leave them... not sure yet....
these are temporary wheels, till i get my CCW 505a's, but i like them alot!
