What are those rims called on the drifter AE86's? They look so stylish that I had to buy a set for my Initial D style hachi roku in Gran Turismo.

Proper Minilites are magnesium cast.
The originals were develoepd for the Mini.
So they matched the name perfectly.
Can't say for modern rip-off copies of which there are numerous !

two are race cars, and one could go wider, it has no dish. which is required for that style wheel. you fail to impress the manatee.

I think the Works Emotion wheels look really good. I also think the Volk GT-N wheels are nice but they have a tendency to look skinny on some cars.
