Saw this clean BMW 1M at Cars and Coffee. You do not see very many of these here in the United States. 740 to be exact and 220 in Canada. This example is from Canada. These BBS RG-F in Silver Paint with black BBS caps is a subtle wheel swap that looks really good. It gives the lip that the stock 1M wheels didn’t have.
These are one of my favorite wheels on the MR2. The Blitz Wheels really compliment the lines of the MR2 well. You will see quiet a few Type 03 Blitz Wheels, but the type 01 wheels seem to be more rare. This is a double stagger setup and give the mr2 a nice wheel stance.
5Zigen Pro Racer GN+ wheel swap on a RARE original Supra Turbo 6 speed hardtop. 1 of 233 imported into the United States. Clean looking car all around.
The owner said he has had this car and wheel setup for several years. 5zigen GN+ wheels specs was 18in and running a square setup with +38 offset from what he remembers.
This Zenos E10s is killer. With the E10s having a power to weight ratio of 300bhp/t this thing is estimated to have a maximum speed of around 135mph and it will cover 0-60mph in under 4 seconds. Setup on a double staggered OZ wheels:
- Front: 16″ Oz Racing Wheels Avantgarde MSW 25 wheels with custom finish sitting on Avon ZZR 195/50R16 tires
- Rear: 17″ Oz Racing Wheels Avantgarde MSW 25 wheels with custom finish sitting on Avon ZZR 225/45R17 tires
A little marketing blurb from their web site:
“The Zenos E10 has one of the highest power to weight ratios relative to its retail price. It has optimal handling and driving kinematics. The chassis platform is unique with a single piece aluminum extrusion as a spine which goes through the middle of the car and a carbon cockpit that straddles it. The spine provides optimal rigidity and the carbon tub, which is made from re-cycled carbon and which retains 70% of the technical characteristics of continuous layered carbon, is both light and relatively low cost.”
Clean MR2’s are getting harder and harder to find. This one is an original 1994 Turbo model which were available in very limited numbers in the U.S. These Work VS-XX wheels rocking a double stagger compliment the MR2 really well.
I have always liked the Infiniti G35/G37 cars. Especially this sedan with SSR MS1 Professor wheels in a staggered and flush setup. The coupes are nice but something about the look of the sedan and its four doors. This owner has done a nice job in picking out the wheel swap for the car.
Japanese Roulette wheel swaps. Can’t go wrong with Red or Black when it comes to the MR2. These two nicely stanced cars are wearing some meaty tires and looking ready for track attack.
The Crimson Red 91 MR2 Turbo has a wheel swap of SSR SP1 Professor’s running 215/40 tires in the front with 255/40 in the back. 17″ wheels all around.
The Black 93 MR2 Turbo is swapped with Enkei RPF1 wheels and is running 235/40 up front with 255/40 in the back also on 17″s.

This is probably one of the cleanest wheelswap and highest WHP SW20 sitting on Volk Racing TE37 wheels on the streets of SoCal. It is continually being evolved by this MR2 owner. Well done good sir.
Came across this restored CA black plated VW Bus with some clean looking polished Porsche Fuchs Wheels in an alley in HB. Where else of course. The polished wheels set this VW Bus off. Nicely down VW fanatic.
One of the cleanest Enkei NT03 wheel swaps I have seen on a Prius V. This thing is almost ready to hit the track with its track stance. If only the owner could find a way to disable traction control.
Toyotafest 2014 has come and gone but the pictures keep coming. Every year I go, the MR2’s seems to get cleaner and cleaner with different wheel swaps and such.
Freshly machined and buffed MR2 Turbo with SSR SP1 Professor wheels rolling to Toyotafest2014. Pictures do not do justice on how clean the single stage paint looks on this car after it was detatiled.

Hey all. Sorry I haven’t been active in posting up new wheel swaps with your favorite wheels and cars. With the summer rolling around the corner and car meets and shows in full effect, I should be busy bringing you the wheel swaps you want to see. Stay tuned for those wheel write ups. If you want me to feature your wheel swap, then reply to this post or use the contact us page and I will be more than happy to include your car and wheel story.
Photoshoot after MR2uesday meet at Phil’s BBQ in San Marcos. Various MR2’s with Work Wheels, Blitz Wheels, SSR Wheels, Enkei Wheels, Replica Wheels from from track wheels to stance wheels to aggressive wheels, and just plain normal wheels.
This is a pretty clean looking stanced MR2 Turbo with Enkei RPF1 wheels. These Enkei wheels are a popular swap on MR2 that go from track to street to stance.
You are looking at pretty rare color in this 15th Anniversary Edition Toyota Supra Turbo with factory chrome wheels. The color is Royal Sapphire Pearl RSP and is estimated at having only 81 cars leaving the factory with that color. This car is very good condition and has about 80,000 miles on wheels.
I was finally able to take some pictures of this social media famous MR2 Turbo Widebody rocking insane wheel spec of Blitz TechnoSpeed Z1 wheels during Motor Union4 at Green Flash Brewing Company. Unfortunately it was surrounded closely by a few other good looking cars that I was not able to take other angles. Until the next show.
Went to Motor Union4 Annual Show at Green Flash Brewing Co. in Mira Mesa. Saw this SOC Scion FRS with Blitz VS-KF Wheels Swap. Very nice stance and keeping inline with the aggressive wheel trend of the FRS/BRZ enthusiasts.
Would love to see some rolling shots of these Blitz VS-KF wheels going around a track sideways.
There are tons of Prius cars on the road nowadays and most if not all that I see have the factory 15in wheels with skinny tires. Not this white Toyota Prius though. This one has the factory 17in wheels from a Lexus CT200h Hybrid Crossover. It makes the Prius look ten times better in my opinion and still retains that factory look. Looks come with a price though. There is a reason Toyota puts 15in wheels with skinny tires on these cars. You know their slogan, ” I want my MPG’s.” Having these wheels will knock off 6-8 miles per gallon so if you want to stay above your normal 50+ MPG then these wheels are not for you. You gotta pay if you want to play. Fear not though because with the better looks these wheels bring, you should also get a quieter and smoother ride along with better handling and performance with the right set of tires.
This is probably one of the most photographed and talked about stanced MR2’s on social media today. The Infamous Devil Horn Wing MR2. The owner and supporting cast have definitely pushed the envelope when it comes to the stance and wheel game for MR2’s. I don’t think there is anybody that even gets close at this time. Don’t get me wrong, stance is definitely universal and each person has their own criteria of what looks clean and what doesn’t, but most people agree when this car is around it does draw the crowds.
Photography credit goes to TRD-3SGTE for shooting his MR2 Turbo at a recent MR2uesday meet in OC.
Lexus IS-F with WesSport SA-67R wheel swap. Looks like it is the blue light chrome finish that complements the car color well.
This Fit is sitting on HRE Wheels from HRE’s C1 Series that probably cost half the value of the car, but definitely looks really good.
This 996 Turbo with X50 Package sitting on TE37 Volk Racing Wheels is very clean and subtle looking. Very nicely done.
This is something you don’t see “two” often. A set of Sprint Hart CP-R wheels with a 5-lug configuration in a size 18″. Normally these are 4-lug and in 15″ and typically found on Honda’s. This set was custom barreled to fit the owners slightly aggressive stance style. The white and chrome wheel swap setup on the turquoise Toyota MR2 really pops.
This BMW M3 is definitely Incredible Hulk, Kermit, Kappa, or what ever name the owner decided on with it’s green theme and rocking some Green TE37SL Volk Racing Wheels swap.
Original TE37SL Takata Green models. A very nice looking set of TE37SL wheels by Volk Racing.
