My Black MR2 turbo

Just had my new wheels & tires mounted this week with a fresh alignment...
Enkei J10 15x6.5 38mm, Kumho MX 205/50/15
Enkei J10 16x7 38mm, Kumho MX 225/45/16

Has KYB inserts with eibachs.
I couldn't be happier with the way it feels. and looks.
I was worried about understeer with the smaller guys up front, but as soon as I made some driving style changes, it was so shocking how stable the car felt. Mid turn you feel like a rubber band just being pulled along. It's amazing.

Previous set up that came with the car, Volk GTC 17x7, 17x8 (not sure of offset).



Here are some random pictures I snapped today. I didn't have my tripod with me, so I kind of half assed... but the car is filthy at the moment anyways.


New set up...

Raising this thread from the dead.
@Tofurky: You must've used spacers for this setup, am I wrong? Looks great.
