Hello, just imported the car from Japan about a month ago. Starting to look for some new rims and tires for it.

Any Suggestions?

This is the car as it sits now http://imgur.com/a/Nqqpj

Cheers, Monk.

Hi mate, welcome, so many rims to choose from, I'm liking bright coloured wheels lately I have a blue pulsar with white wheels and it looks great but thinking of changing them to kawasaki green! Think white wheels always look great on a black pulsar

I love white wheels on a black r with some good offset but not too crazy (mine are +25). Most random username I've seen in awhile buddy Smile

Have you got/are you planning on runner bigger brakes? If so brake size will affect what size wheels you can fit.
With regards to tires I use kuhmo ecsta or toyo tr1 for road use. Others have used goodyear eagle F1's or various yokohama's.

I don't have a brake kit for it now. I would like to get one at some point. Do you know what the cost would be for something like that?

Thanks, Monk.

I don't plan on racing it, so nothing extreme, just a little more stopping power would be nice.

What do you guys think about 15x7 Konig dial ins with 205/50/15 Hankook Ventus v2?

I was actually thinking of the gold ones. Do you know what's the widest tire I can fit on stock suspension?

Or where I can get some adjustable coilover?

That sounds enticing. Im just not sure if shipping would make it worth while or not. As i am in Alberta, Canada.

Maybe if you need a few bits you could get it shipped as one to help cut postage costs down ....

have a look through members rides for wheel ideas I would put pics up of mine but takes me ages as I hate computers and mobile phones unless its one press of a button like watsapp etc

I saw a picture on here of a guy who had xxr that were 15x8.25 with 0 offset apparently. Said he needed to roll the fenders. And I really liked the look of them. But it seemed like the tires were stretched on, which I'm nottoo keen on.

yeah weve got coilovers, big brake kit and many wheels in stock but tbh the wheels wont be worth shipping due to the size and weight of them, other bits shouldn't be too bad though

if you want anything drop me a pm and il get a quote for you
