Wheel Whore

I was looking through some old photos today and realised just how many sets of wheels I've owned over the last few years.

Modena something split rims - these were 17x8 or something weak and came on my S14. I sprayed them green after seeing Mark Arcenal's D-Unit S14 rocking the green J-Line wheels.

Enkei Speedlines. 17x9J+22 - I loved these wheels! I ran one into a kerb street drifting and had it repaired then sold them on.

Racing Sparco Pythons - 17x9+22 - I bought these cheap on Ebay as a set of 3. They used stupid internal drive nuts which I didn't trust.

My first set of R33 GTR wheels - I still love GTR's on everything except R33 GTR's! Sprayed them green, they looked cool on my black S14.

Enkei RP-01 - 18x9+22 - Didn't actually even get round to fitting these. Bought them cheap and sold them expensive.

My second set of R33GTR's, sprayed bright white. Seen here with +25mm H&R spacers all round.

Advan AVS Model 5 - I had 5 of these, they came on my PS13. 17x9+22.

Work Rezax - 17x8+10 and 17x9+10 - nice offsets and good dish despite being narrow on the front. Needed a tidy up but I sold them on to Quail as I was too lazy. I know he sold them on too, wonder if they ever made it onto a car?

Rota Torque - 17x9.5+12 - I bought 6 of these as my competition wheels. Cheap, easily replaceable and not bad looking. Still have 4 today.

Work Euroline - 18x9+7 and 18x10+4 - Swapped these for my FC3S, always wanted some Euroline so had to be done! Still have these - fate undecided.

Origin DNA02 - 17x9.5+15 - My new competition wheels. I have 8 of these and I'm soon to order 4 more in 18".

Work Rezax - 18x11+13 and 18x12.5+19 - the daddies. Bought from Yahoo Japan. Will probably sell these on but I NEED to try them on the S13 first.

So yeah, I like wheels :)

I'd love to know what happened to those Rezax. I was chatting to Steveo the other day when I was collecting some parts. He bought them for a friend, but doesnt know what happened to them either!

Love those green 33 wheels.

Tempted me to go 5-stud sooner than planned.
