I don't own it but I drove it as much, if not more than the owner over the last few years. It got me a trophy at nationals this year!

I don't have it anymore but I will buy it back if the current owner wants to sell it.

Definately! :twisted: My R33 was also a GTS-4. Glad I sold it before the feds went after all of them. :shock:

I had those in 1 piece. those would fit on a xr too. those early RX-7's had the same lug pattern just smaller lug bores.

they are "Compomotive" right or "Works" ?

They're a 3 piece wheel from Compomotive but they won't fit the XR.

That car is just a GS so it has a 4x110 bolt pattern.

Just wait until you go to change the oil for the first time and you're like, "WTF is the oil filter on this thing!?" :?

Right now we've got three in the stable:

My '89 Scorpio:

My wife Carrie's '89 Scorpio:

And our family hauler, a 2005 Kia Sedona:

Up until recently we also had a 1991 Saab 900S, but unfortunately that car has since departed. Right now I'm in the market to add a super-economical commuter car to our driveway, perhaps something along the lines of a Geo Metro/Suzuki Swift or Honda CRX.
