Well need to get some wheels for spring and part of my bday money will go towards them!
Found these wondering if it would sit correct.

Work Equip
Front-- 17x7+35 114.3 5h
Rear-- 17x8+35 114.3 5h

I own a 1991 na mr2 and I am lowered on tein stech springs if that might cause any conflicts.

Thanks guys!!

Will fit very nicely. About 12mm tucked both front and rear. No danger of rubbing, and will look very good.

I would go with 205/40/17 front and 235/40/17 rear (or maybe 225 in rears, just to drop a little weight since you wont really need the extra traction with an NA)

12mm isn't that much if you think about it. I personally think that it looks great, and

leaves plenty of room for wide tires.

Personally, I think perfectly flush wheels are highly overrated, and in some cases almost look kinda funny (especially on the stock body, with a kit it looks better).

Look at it this way, the stock wheels are about 35mm tucked, so you will be 23mm less tucked than stock. So go look at your car with stock wheels, and imagine the wheels almost a full inch closer to the fenders.

Absolutely! I couldn't agree more!

215/40R17s in the front would be closer to the stock OD and should be fine on a 7" wheel. 235/40R17 is perfect for the rear.
