bitshftr, looking good. Maybe a set of spacers front and rear might help to further highlight those lovely OEM wheels. Chip (lagtime) has demonstrated how good the stockers look when tucked less.
Interesting. How much of a spacer? Does Chip/lagtime have a thread with info and pictures?

^^^ agreed
Thanks!

Nice Wheels!
You know it Adam! And all 4 of them (long story...will be told later). They made it to a good home. I'll take good care of them.

Closeup of the perfection (this particular wheel likes to go and go and GO...long story...will be told later):

IIRC, Chip actually had fronts widened to 10" and moved them to the back, while moving the rear 9.5" wheels to the front. He had the wheels finished in OEM style chrome.

I think he might be able to help with the effective offsets if you were to reach out to him. One of the community stalwarts and a great guy.

Yea, it’s hard to get away from BPU, car feels amazing and drives just like stock zipping around town at 17psi.

Bitshftr?

Today the transportation company dropped off my new to me stock Supra Turbo. I brought it to the touch-less car wash, fill up the gas tank, and drove it around. :)

#keepitbpu Agreed. I love my BPU+. Can't use more than 16psi around town anyway. At the road course though, 19psi is really fun!

Nice wheels Armo...just like my SSR SP1 Professors, but with more bolts showing.

Took my Supra on it's last major trip before it goes under the knife. Perhaps by July or so the car will undergo major upgrades or changes. New Seats (sparco Milano Prestige), new Dashboard, new gauges (Stu), New Transmission (V160), new Engine, new wheels (HRE).

So why not take the car up to Palo Alto and back down for my girlfriends graduation? What's the worst that could happen? Well the 25 year old hose gave out and I sprayed coolant all over the engine bay. Was fortunate that I keep an eye on my temps at all times (Been through 2 OEM radiators before I finally decided to upgrade to a better aftermarket radiator) Out in bumfuck no where Bakersfield. Huge shout out and thanks to Patrick and the Supra community who helped me out during a very dire situation at 7PM to fix the car in 38 mins and get back on the road. Only bad thing that happened appears to be I am perhaps misfiring at lower RPMs (Old Spark Plugs).

But made it back yesterday and the car is on piece and is ready to get all of her major upgrades. Gorgeous views, gorgeous drive, as a kid from Ohio glad to be in California.

Installed sets of Diamond Audio SX65V 6.5" components in the front doors and the back panels, and then mounted a small Soundstream Stealth amp in the trunk to power the components and ran the wiring to the head unit and battery. Pulling the entire interior apart is a lot easier at the start of the day than putting it back together at the end of the day. Audio is significantly improved with minimal weight penalty (amp was <5lbs).

Still need to figure out a small subwoofer approach and a smart rearview mirror setup.

I enjoying breathing small and subtle updates where possible (Stu gauges and HVAC, HID retrofit, JDM folding mirrors, better audio without penalties/gaudiness, 98 style wheel, backup camera, etc). Adding a smart mirror with 'Mirror Link' capability and auto dimming would be a nice update without changing the feel of the car.
