If you're willing to re-barrel a 2 or 3 piece wheel, you could hit up Rajeet at Mastermind NA and tell him what kind of faces you're looking for, and just barrel them how you see fit. Rajeet is the homie from back in the day, he helped me source a number of rare boutique JDM parts for my Hondas once upon a time and he did the refinishing on a set of BBS for me about 2 years ago. Mastermind can facilitate getting you the faces, and also refinishing and re-barreling to whatever size you want if you'd like a one stop shop. Pretty much if it exists or existed, Rajeet and his guys can get them for you.

Reread what he wrote. The guy is not going to drive on the original rubber. Heís going to save the original wheels with original tires for future value if/when the car is sold.

I’ll be the voice of reason. Ditch the 18” and get 17”. Your current wheels have never looked good to me (but it is your car, do as you please).

That wasn't clear to me but I guess to each their own, I don't see how that would add value but maybe someone would...

I've never seen original tires on an old vehicle add value. The only thing it usually adds is a massive amount of comments in regards to safety.

Not in the immediate future, but look at muscle cars; you cannot get the original bias-ply tires anymore so it's just something collectible that adds to the provenance. No one actually drives on them. It's like sitting in antique furniture..

Yea if you don't plan on ever driving the car, at all, I guess things like fuel filters, tires, brakes, all rubber parts, none of those "matter."

I have a couple extra cans laying around from 94. They are yours if you cover shipping.
