SIXTY: Tell us more about the wheels. NTM or Chambers? And what diameter and offset? These look really nice!

Thank you for the compliments,
The rims are from NTM. The fronts are 17x7 ET25 and the rears are 17x8.5 Et25. Tires are 205/45 17 and 235/40 17
When I was younger I always wanted these wheels but couldn't afford them. I struggled to put gas and oil in the car.
So I bought a set of used Omni GLH wheels and tried my best to get them to fit. Didn't happen. Sooooo now that I'm
going through a midlife crisis I figured I'd finally put the wheels on the 86.
I've learned that it's better to pay once and get what you want then pay twice and be unhappy.

I'll post some pics of it coming out of 15 years of storage for the first time

Unhappy

I tried to put 205/40 17 in the front but it's so hard to find front and rear tires that are the same brand and model in the sizes I wanted.
After calculating the aspect ratio this combo was the closest. The overall height is very very close to original. If I ever need a tire it's easy to replace.
In Toronto we drive our cars 6 months out of the year (May to October, sometimes November) so If I hit a pot hole and damage a tire I want to be able
to replace it the next day.
I agree with you. I think the 40 series tire would look better in the front and would have saved me some time on getting
the little bit of extra clearance I needed to clear the plastics.

For some reason in Asia they make tire sizes I've never even heard of but in North America we are limited to tire sizes that would
be factory installed on a vehicle. Not sure how it is in Australia?

Any pics of your GP? I love that body styling
