80s Style Rims

Modern wheels and rims have changed a lot since the 80s, with people wanting larger and wider wheels.

However, for people wanting things to look period correct, are there any good sellers of 14/15 inch wheels in 80s styles?

I like new wheels, but they tend to look out of place on the aw11s.

Anyone got pictures of what they run, and the sizes?

    Yep sorta partial to the MR2. Had an AW11 90 to 94 then had the SW20 94 til now.  The SW20 had 13000 ks when I purchased her...sitting on 206000 now, still with original motor and g/box.

    Anyone tried 'Auscar' rims before?

    These look pretty good, and I reckon would come up really nice in matte colours.

    https://www.bobjane.com.au/a/14x5-5-4-100-wheels/auscar/trak-silver-14x5-5-4-100-p38/6624



    Edit: I'm not suggesting them as I've never tried, nor am I suggesting people purchase from bobjame just happen to have seen them there.


    Edit 2: apparently these are Bobjane Original (Chinese rebrands) so makes sense I only found them there.
