I'd like a set of these in whatever condition one of you hoarders has them in.  Cash or trades work for me.

I have 5 in stock,lol. I use them to hold up my RX7 when it is in storage. If you have something the same bolt pattern with tires that hold air for months I'll trade you straight up.

I can defiantly arrange that.  Let me see if I can find something that'll work.  Any offset that you need?  15x6?  What size tires?

Aren't the 15" hen's teeth?

I proudly have a set of the 14X8s that were on the GT-S Corollas and Supras, but back when I was hunting, the 15" were JDM only, super pricey (even 15 years ago), and highly sought after. 

I hope these are indeed 15s and the trade goes off. Good, non-sarcastic luck.

Ooo. Not sure what size they are. I got them with a car that I parted out about 10 years ago.  The tires were on them then and I've never even looked at them. I'll check this afternoon.

FYI those were also found on the Celica GT in 82 and 83,  and the Celica GT-S (same car) in 84 and 85, but not on the 84-85 Celica GT.  And on all the Celica convertibles from that era.

I heart Celicas from the mid 80s.

Mgb wheels should fit (ask me how I know).

Stampie if you were coming through here I'd give you a set of mgb wheels.

I don't know how that car exists in that condition.

In the summer of 1985, I looked an '82 or '83 Celica, and it was already starting to rust through on the hatch above the tail lights.

Boo. I had hoped to not be the bringer of bad news.

Agreed, mid 80's Toyotas are keen.

Not a Celica but I keep seeing this mint Supra driven by someone that looks to be in his mid 80s. 

Next time I see it at a light I will ask, but I bet he is the original owner.

I think that's a pretty early one, '82-'83 or maybe '84. That was the best color available, too!

The 15s are available on Ebay. I might have to bite the bullet and buy them.

I didn't even know they made them in 15" flavour.

I almost bought a 14" set at the junkyard because they look so cool, but ultimately passed.

 

They look great embiggened too on Speed Academy's Flexus
