hi all  Smiley

i have been offered some mr2 wheels cheap there 205/45/16 and the standered wheels i have are 205/70/14 is there going to be a problam appart from the speedo readin to fast?

will the wheels be strong anuff for my esti?

i was going to use the tyre that came with the wheels till they are worn out then put some bigger ones on it to make the speedo right what do you think?

I'm guessing that they would be unsuitable. The Esti probably weighs more than twice the MR2.

Definetly not, your Estima is twice the weight of the MR2 and the wheels would not be strong enough for it.
Have a look at the threads about wheels, lots of info there.

hey thanks for the replys!! Smiley

i thought it may be a bad idea....


but i have just brought some lexus rx300 wheels and tyres with a size of 215/70/16!!

i know this is bigger than standerd and it will put the speedo out but they look really good i think on the next tyre change i will go for 215/55/16 to bring the speedo right i had some rubbing issues on the driverside front wheel i had to remove some of the couling but now works like a dream Grin Grin

but hay hers some pics for you!! Cheesy

let me know what you think!! Grin

The Lexus wheels are probably the best option if you really want them, Always liked 5 spokes and they look fantastic as they did on mine....they were off an IS 200.
My previous Estima, Pinky had these when I had to sell her, they were perfect Embarrassed
