WHEELS AND ADAPTERS



Wheels are a big part of the overall look of your finished Supercar replica. We recommend 18" or 19" wheels on most of our kits; however you may choose to put any size wheel that will work best for you. The internet and eBay has many wheels to choose from. We list one company in Florida that specializes in replica wheels; see our ad descriptions for details. Visit them at www.hlwcorp.com and also see our ad descriptions for additional details.
www.wheeladapters.com is a great website to order your wheel adapters from.

You will use the MR2 interior with this kit but some people upgrade the MR2 interior by taking it to an upholsetry shop and having the center part of the seats and the upper insert on the door inside interior panel colored the same color as the finished car. See photos for details.
