A while ago I approached Dan for some help with navigating the Yahoo Japan auctions, and I slowly got the hang of it with much assistance from Babel Fish. I highly recommend jumping on yahoo.jp if you’re looking for 2nd hand Japanese parts, but I also highly recommend staying the hell away from it if you’re not planning on spending any money. Once you get the hang of it, it’s really addictive, as it’s a virtual candy store for Japanese parts and you will find it hard to resist temptation.
After losing an auction for some old school Work Equip 03s, I told myself I’ll just leave the whole wheel issue alone for a while, as I didn’t exactly need new rollers. Well that didn’t last long, and in no time I was pestering Dan again to put a bid on some Work Ewing III’s.
This time, I won!
Work Ewing III
F: 15×6.5 +21
R: 15×7 +16
Over the next couple of weeks I will be giving the lips a bit of a polish and painting the centers black, leaving just the outline of the star shape polished. Tyre size will be 195/45/15
Hopefully in a few weeks they’ll be on the car and I’ll have an update for you with some decent pictures.
