that would work, but it will look really bad because the front wheel is gonna be even with the lip and the rear will be way in. I would get a rear spacer as well about 5mm bigger than whatever is in the front. Even then its still gonna look wierd.

I would not recommend getting them. Not worth the trouble.

I would keep the wheels you have now that are the appropriate sizes. Why mess around w/ spacers if you already have the "right" sizes. You may want to research whether running the same width all-around would increase the chance of snap oversteer. From what I've read, it seems that using a wider rim in back make the rear end more managable and decrease the possibilty of snap oversteer.

Wow. David, your gonna enjoy the oversteer on turns with the same width rims all round. Toyota made the rear rims wider and tires wider for a reason :). I would wait for a staggered set. But thats just me, if you trully like them and don't worry about possible unexpected oversteer go for it. When you want me to be at P&L to install the DP.

Greg.

I've already got rims I like. My #2 choice in rims. The Blitz are my #1 choice for rims on a MR2 . .sorry danny.

PLus it was gonna be a straight up trade, no cash outta my pocket, which I like.

I'm proud of you man. I know how much you wanted those rims and how much it had to hurt to pass them up, I don't know if I could have done it. However, when you finally get them you don't want to be unhappy with them for some reason.

ya David I think thats the right move. The tucked rear wheels would have bugged the crap out of you.
