Suggestions for Aw11 Wheels??? 2 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 10
My 1990 mk1 Mr2 is currently running on some slightly shabby looking teardrop alloys and while I know these are original I was wondering what everybody might suggest to replace them. I'm not looking at spending a huge sum of money. Cheers!

Tear drops polished up do look well.
Another option is the wheels off a mk3 roadster.

They can be picked up cheap enough and IMO look well on a MK1.

Car is going great. Haven't been doing much since I got it but went for a few runs. Since it was a kind of Christmas present from my Mrs she didn't want me to go near it till after Christmas but I couldn't resist. Watched wheeler dealer mr2 episode and maybe polishing the wheels could work. I don't want to upset the handling.

Nice wheels. I looked into buying a gen 3 last year but total lack of boot space made me decide against it.

Have been offered a set of 15 inch wheels off an e30 Bmw. They're 4x100 and I know Ill need hub rings. Anybody have any experience in using wheels like that.

Are they the correct offset?

Offset is 35 so that should be ok I'm thinking. Not sure what tyre size they have or what I should use.

I have 195/50r15 on both my sets of alloys. It means tyres are reasonably cheap too.
