There are some here (http://www.guerillar.../ns-div2-wheel/), but ebay might have them cheaper.

Agreed. I'm just throwing it out there as an alternative to hunting down 25 year old wheels.

I like 'em Jay. They are a lot like my old Rikens, almost the same. Starion rims are sweet but they aren't very strong so it's all relative. I'd take a set of these in 8.5 and 9.5 before I'd pay a fortune for some SHP's with a smaller lip than a set of regular Starion rims have. The mesh looks good on an 80's car too.

By no means a track-grade wheel but nice for streets & meets.

I'm really wondering why people think Starion rims are strong..? They are made of soft aluminum and bend very easily. Almost any used set you get will need to be fixed if you want them to spin totally straight, especially on the backside of the rear rims they are prone to flat spots. Has manufacturing technology really not improved in 25 years to the point where an affordable rim is not at the level of an OEM wheel from 1987..?

not a fan of the layed out look on that Toyota...but that's just me I guess.  Kids now days think its cool when your wheels are crooked I guess cuz of how low they sit....anyways the wheels look ok as others have said, but I like my shp's better.

^ Image wheels aren't cheap.

Example: cast face 3-pc 16x10 wheel straight from Image is roughly $500 per wheel before shipping
