WTB four 4x4.5 hub Toyota wheels 14 or 15"
 
I need to do a tire upgrade, my Kubota-powered sports car has rear wheel drive Toyota running gear and 13" wheels. So I'm looking for a set of four wheels, 14 or 15 inch tire size and as narrow as practical. A quarter century ago there were commonplace (Toyota Corolla Corona etc, Datsun 240zx, 280sx etc) but I'm at a loss here and now, all our local wreckers scrapped them when scrap metal peaked a couple years ago.

Your help will be much appreciated

Do you need the "RWD" offset? That bolt pattern was used on many newer cars, but with a higher offset. Hyundais, some Nissans, some Accords, some Mazdas, some Saabs. Suzuki Swift GTs had 14" wheels that were only 5" wide.

I have two sets of 14" wheels in that pattern. A set of low-offset Datsun 280ZX wheels, 6" wide. And a set of high-offset 5.5" wide Mazda 626 wheels. But I'm on the other side of the country....

Thanks, Mr. Fumes, it's a ways away but UPS is everywhere.

I do need the RWD offset, and I'd rather not go as wide as 6"; Toyota made a gajillion of them 25-30 years ago, 5.5" wide in a variety of cool alloy designs but it's sure been a struggle to find them.

Woohoo! A guy on the LocostUSA list came through and saved a set of Toyota snowflakes from the foundry. I just owe him an ingot.

Thank y'all for your consideration. Thus endeth the thread.
