    The wheels are 7.5x18 and 10.18 OEM for '99 f355. Does anyone know if these will fit a '91 TR? If so, how different are they than the 512TR wheels? They seem to look pretty similiar. Any advise appreciated.

    TR wheels are wider at 8" front and 10.5" rear. Also look slightly different. More masculine IMO.

    355's wheels will fit without any mods. TR512's wheels are wider front and rear. Although similar looking, the spokes of the TR512 'Starfish' are wider and thus look shorter than the 355s' pattern. To run 235/40/18 F and 295/35/18 R on the upgraded 18" that both wheels are, the TR512s are a better bet (The rim width are optimum for the upgraded sizes). Not sure about pricing though, they'd be more expensive than a set of 355's.

    I thought you had to run spacers when utilizing the 512tr wheels on a Testa? I think that the spacers are thick enough that a wheel stud change is in order too? No?
