You should get them and put them on your new wagon David! I really dig this wheel. Toyota Alloys are pretty heavy but are well made.

Nah, I only like these wheels on t4's. Even then, I'd probably only use them for winter tires. I'm sold on the bigger wheel/smaller tire combo for the majority of the year at this point. For my current AE92, I found some 15" Honda alloys that I put 185/55r15's on. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.

Cool wheels and a good match for a T4, but like MR2 triangles they suck for winter use. I switched to generic 5 spoke wheels and can now easily poke out the inevitable snowpack I get on a regular basis. Too many trips home from the lake with heavy vibrations..

That chunk of broom handle under the drivers seat is not a whooping stick!

Huh, I never thought of that. We don't get much snow here so it's not much of an issue but yeah, I can definitely see wheels like these and the mr2 alloys collecting tons of snow and throwing the wheel off balance.
