Really? What offset and tire size? Were you running stock spring perches? I thought some people had to do some massaging to run 15x7.5. My 16x7 with 205/45/16 barely clear my stock perches up front.

I fail at Wheel ID :) Good thing is you can still get the Enkei 92's new.

I saw these at Tire Rack. Decent price, I like the color combination:


$120 for 15x6.5

Finally made up my mind. Drag DR-27 silver machined lip. Couldn't resist the exposed allen bolts... $100 each at Discount Tires locally. Now to decide on tires. (They have Kumho Ecsta AST for $69 and BF Goodrich g-force Sport Comp-2 for $88 in size 195/50-15)

My MR2 did not like tires that had a v-tread so if either of those do, I would choose ones that do not.
My MR2 would shimmy badly on v-treads. Research pointed toward bad bushings in the steering rack.
Ran perfectly smooth with non v-treads.

I'd go with the BFG's.

BFG looks better, but, are there other choices?

In reply to JohnRW1621:

Those are the two choices at the place I'm buying the wheels, in the size I want. Or at least had on the other MR2 when I bought it so I know they work... 195/50-15

No guarantee you will have the problem I had but if you do, the answer is not tie rods but rather bushings inside the actual steering rack.
I personally bought two different tires for the front end as my solution.
