    The wife bought her plane ticket's and she is on her way to the land of real JDM parts......Japan. And she is on the look out for rims to buy for people here in America.....and since I will not be able to go with her...she is going to be lost on what kind of rims to look for that most of us would buy....she's doing this as a side job.....

    So what I need from you guys is a small wish list......

    If you had a chance to get some decent rims....be it 1, 2, 3, or a full set.....what Rims would you want to buy?

    She will be going from shop to shop with her freind, and neither of them don't even know what rim's, sizes, or brand to look for....

    So if you could....post a size, brand name, style, color, and price that you would expect to pay for.....and pic's would help out a lot....she leaves in on the 5th..so I can guide her in the direction on what she should be looking for...and how much she should spend on them....most of these will be for used rims that a lot of the people over there has resold back to the auto-parts pawnshops.....


    So post a pic, size, color, brand name, and the price you would expect to pay....remember...these will be coming from Japan, so the shipping is going to kill us.

    I don't need any rims... but I still would love some workshirts or t-shirts from the Yamato Freight Co. I love these kittykats in their company logo. Any fun Honda shirts, especially any with the older cars on them. Hatches and crx's. No coupes.

    both those advan and mugen rims posted uptop are fucking badass, i have loved those two rims since they first came outa while ago, the mugen ones are tough to find, good luck with that.

    That Escort is faster than you think, and that wing is rally bred and inspired. As TPP said, it's completely functional to keep the ass end of that turbocharged monster, with it's 300 hp and AWD, planted to the ground.

    ;)


    <---wants a Euro/JDM spec Cosworth of his own...



    someday...

    Bear in mind, now is the best time to get CTR cams, mugen adjustable timing gears, REAL Mugen valve covers, Endless brake kits, Apexi electronics that are 3 years beyond US distribution and buddy club body kits.

    The real deal.

    You KNOW my CRX needs an old-school Mugen wheel. I need a shifter knob too, but not one like yours. The Momo anatomic but in Mugen trim would be nice.

    Oh, and Bride seats ! Well, prolly too large.. but now is the time. I need something neat in the lines of a real front strut tower bar. Well, maybe not.

    Mugen CF48 in 14"x6.5 if you please :)

    So is your wife just boxing everything up and shipping it stateside? That's a hell of a lot of cargo to bring back on a plane... try running those rims through the carry-on check.

    :lmao:
