I thought they looked ultra dorky. And the rear fenders being not even with the fronts really erked me. BUT. i saw a car or two that really did it for me...it was a black 92 244. With really nice wheels.

like such:

And then i saw a drift 245 with diamonds and overfenders, and i laughed.

Although, those rimps are a bit too "blingy" for me..

haha wow. That is ballin'...i saw a skyline GT-R with that color paint job show up on sask kijiji a while back.

What are your thoughts on pegs? i used to like em but now i prefer rims with a really nice dish...pegasus are sort of the opposite to that.

These are my favourite Volvo bolt-on wheels on a really nice 245. I don't know who the about-to-sneeze chick is, tho.

I still like pegs, think they look great on 740's, for 240's they're OK but I like a meshie with some lip more.

ETA: Forgot to say Tethys look really good on both 2/7 cars, Craigs 242 with Tethys is Goldilocks perfect.

^ what size of rubber is that? Looks good!

I love the quad squares on a 7, but not so much on the 240...
I don't even prefer the single round headlights, it's basically just the full rectangular ones that i like.
Had a look into this "flat hood" business, and yes i like that!

So basically what it comes down to is...
a 242 or 244 with hum drum headlights, a flat hood, lowered with some nice dished rims...

AND now we wait....



*clicks refresh on kijiji*

I'm usually not a fan of Pegs on RWD cars, particularly 240's, but that blue one looks good. Definitely some dish is better. I'm with Matt on the Super DTM's....by far my favourite bolt-on wheel.
