Took a trip this saturday down to my parents place to give the 180SX a good clean up and look over after the TopGear festival. Its all ready for Victorias biggest comp Drift Attack! Read on for more photos.
The big difference is the polished wheels, after cracking yet another TE37 and damaging one of my fronts i ordered new TE37s to complete my bronze set and then decided to do what id never thought i would, buy Varrstoen TE fakes. Ive been against rip off wheels for a long time for the obvious reasons, but after buying 12 genuine TE37s from the Rays factory overy the last few years i cannot afford to keep busting them and rebuying the huge dollar rims.
I bought 3 sets of staggered wheels, 6 off 18×10.5+15 and 6 off 18×9.5+12, the quality looks fairly good with a few blemishes here and there but overall they are brilliant value for money.
Fitment wise they are perfect, actually a lot wider than the 10.5″ TE37 measuring an extra 10-15 mm wider overall, this makes them more of a 11″ rim than a 10.5, that means a 235 stretches even more which makes me 🙂
I only had room for a pair of 10.5s in the ute on the way down so the 9.5s will go on the front with 225-40 tyres.
What do people think? Im going to be a whole lot less stressed now when grinding ripple strips.
