those are a really nice choice because they actually fit the car and don't look ridiculously oversized. I likes!

I still like those, and still want one someday. is insurance a ton? how about upkeep? can't be any worse than my 3.4 V6 at any rate. I'll be looking for a car in the next year, hopefully I have enough money to get something I really want instead of just a "tide me over" replacement.

Yes, the car is lowered on H&R springs. I'd actually like to bring the front up a little.

285s fit just fine with alot of room to go...some guys are running 315s on them with no troubles.


Insurance is less per year on the Supra than it is on my '87 Nissan 2wd pickup; same coverage, too.

Upkeep isn't too bad for a 20yr old sportscar...you still have to expect to fix things here and there.
