Kurt,
I have attached a picture of my TR. They look pretty similar. Mine are Speedline wheels. Let me know if you need more info.

I have a 1988 TR with the stock center main lug quick change wheels. I can't seem to loosen the front and rear quick change lugs on the passenger side. The drivers side wheels came off fine. I even used a sludge hammer on the removal and still can't loosen. Are the passengers side reverse theads requiring to rotate cockwise to loosen? Any suggestions??

Most knock-off wheels have reverse thread on the passenger side, otherwise you would risk the nut loosening when driving.

Ferrari center-lock or "knock-off" wheel hubs on the right hand side (passenger) are left-hand thread. This means you turn them clockwise to remove them. As Sam mentioned, this is done to prevent loosening while driving. Once you get them off, check for damage to the hub and nut threads if you've used excessive force in the wrong direction.

Regarding the chrome wheel question, the OEM wheels are all painted in satin silver. Chrome plating was done by some owners, but not from the factory.

Hi..........

Check the face of the hub nut itself. As I recall, all of them have the word "Off" and/or "Smontare" and a large arrow to indicate the correct direction of rotation.

When in doubt, check the owners manual too. There is a nice "knock-off wheel tool kit" sold by Stainless Steel Brakes Corporation:

www.ssbrakes.com

which makes it possible to set the correct torque on the hub nut.

The wheels are made by SAC and can be ordered from Champion Motors Sports at 1-800-940-4020. Also, check out SAC on the web. Ask for Tod.

The tires are Michilen. Front:235/40/18 Rear:295/35/18.

Expect to spend around $4,500 for the total package. Enjoy!
