Dug out the old 1986 r11t lump out the garage that had been stored for many years. Rebuild?? i think not. if it ain't broke don't fix it. This is a pmt spec build.

Quite liked that look so bought a set


£250 for the rims
£288 for the 185/60/13 toyo r888's
£160 for blast and powdercoat
£48 for 4 new centrecaps (were supposed to be £6 each but once they were on order there was no going back!)
Total = £746, could have got a set bbs for this amount...
The powdercoating does look superb though, the pics don't do them justice, the finish is ultra sparkly :)
