i have 18 x 7.5 volk racing te-37's. i believe the offset is 44. the tires are 225/40/18.

i absolutely love these rims. when i first got them i put them on and wasnt all too thrilled with the look. but now i think its absolutely stunning. looks so sleek. the rims are black, which are very hard to obtain in the US. the car is black. at nite when i drive i feel like a B2 bomber, so stealth. i love it. i love my CAR!!!!!!

have you dropped the car since you got the rims??? wondering about clearance. i know toyota's usually have a mean camber when you drop them too low tho...helps with clearance in the wheel wells. still trying to figure out what size i want to get. anyone know the largest size wheel that may fit under the rear fender wells without modification. i figure those who get turbo kits and such will need to go larger wheels in the rear to handle all that power being put to the ground.

acuracing, where do you usually park on Campus? I want to see it so maybe I can get the same rims. Hmm, won't it be funny to have two identical IS at UCI.

hyper: i did lower my car. that was the first thing i did. the camber is not all that bad, but nevertheless is still very present. nothin i can really do until i can get my hands on a camber kit.

daniel. i dont actually park on campus. i park off campus in some apartments and walk. id rather walk than wait foreer for a parkin space on campus. email me at [email protected] if u want to meet up sometime. and about the rims, i really think it's going to be next to impossible for you to get a hold of some black TE-37's, unless you powdercoat them. i was kinda thinkin about sellin them already, but i'm just a greddy bastard. hahaha

for all u that wanted pics.. here they are.. hope u have a broadband service.











enjoy!!! i love driving this beast. since i took the pics i have gotten the windows tinted all around. 20% back three, 35% the front two. looks clean.

Taaaaight! Kinda reminds me of the Oregon State Football team when they wear their all black uniform including shoes and all. Or is it the Portland Blazers?

I usually don't like black rims (or any of the colored ones like white, etc) but in this case.........DAMN that looks sweet.
