Happy Birthday MR2 (18)

Changed the rims, lowered 30mm, other than that still stock.

Not my first choice of rims by a long shot, but they were ridiculously cheap, anyway, not doing bad for 18.

What size are those? I'm not normally a bigger is better sort but they actually look small on the car, but maybe its a trick of the lens or something.

17" now, stock is 15" you can go bigger 18/19 but the handling goes completely to pot :lol:

The dark rims don't help as it blends with the tyres, but as I said in the original post the price was right

Thanks, and it's a Rev 5.

4/5 basically were just little cosmetic touches, different steering wheel, spoiler etc, same engine et al as the 3 afaik.

The wheels don't look too bad, you could always powder coat or dip them :D
