hahaha, yeah it seems that wheels don't stick around long. I still have the BBS wheels in the garage that we need to clean and fix up and fit on the CT, we just haven't yet. They are a 3 part wheel so we are going to pull them apart and powder coat the inner piece blue, it should look pretty sweet when we get it done.
We are still saving up for the air ride for the CT, it just came out a few months ago and cheapest I've found it so far is 3k, with the hubby having surgery and helping my mom with cancer bills, toys are just not in the budget right now.

I remember when my brother (the previous owner of my Corolla) ordered the Toyota Team Europe wheels brand new, Toyota Netherlands took several weeks to get a full set of four wheels together, they only had three brand new wheels in The Netherlands and had to import the fourth one out of a German Toyota dealership. that's how rare they were back in 2009.. hahaha

Yeah I did what I could to try and help find one for him, I had no luck. I told them best bet is to call the manufacturer directly and see if maybe there is still one in the warehouse somewhere, and I sent him their website and phone number.

We had a couple cold weeks, then a lot of rain Friday and Saturday, then yesterday was gorgeous, it was like 70 degrees and sunny. It was nice to see all that sunshine when we hadn't for a couple weeks. I will definitely check out your pictures.

It always hurts to hear about things like that, hopefully he can find a replacement wheel.. even our extremely rare Toyota Team Europe wheels still pop up from time to time. I know of a club member that smashed one wheel and he held on to the other three wheels, trying to find a fourth wheel to once again complete his set.. after about three years he finally managed to find one.

I put up another picture on the team wall, that's my current winter wheels (I give them a new design each year) but they're not actually on the car aside from that picture. as it's still too warm right now. This might be the last warm week of the year though.

We had about a week where at night it was dropping to the 20s and the days were only in the 30s and 40s. It's warmed up some this week, 40s in the evening and 60s in the day. That is the kind of fall weather we are used to in Texas.

Because the weather here doesn't get very bad we don't swap out the wheels on the car. I did hear from the new owner of my old car, asking some questions. I was sad to hear he had rear ended someone in the car and now has curbed a wheel that it is cracked, the tire does not hold air and is not fixable. I've tried to help find a replacement for them, but it looks like the wheels is discontinued by XXR, and they might be SOL.

The Corolla is all good to drive even through winter, though it'll be her last winter as I'm definitely getting a daily driver next year.

The weather is surprisingly warm, I'm still on my summer wheels right now, even last year (mildest winter so far) already had me driving on the winter set around this time..

Awesome, sounds like you found a good shop.
Like I said we did all our work ourselves, so we do our own checkups. The weather here has been cold, high in 30s, which is unusual for TX, but a nice change to get to wear my cute sweaters and jackets. The xB though we don't drive it with freezing temps, the condensation in the air tank and such can freeze, so we have only been driving the Lexus this week.

Can't believe the holidays are fast approaching again already!

We're still having great weather here, I don't think it'll get cold until december comes around.

I took the Corolla to the custom shop that did my airride today. They gave the Corolla a free check-up to see if the system was still working right and hadn't rubbed on anything through the last six months. the check-up only took like ten minutes and everything was in great condition, I ended up hanging out at the shop for a good two hours before I actually went back home though.. hahaha

It is a nice 70 today, but temps drop tonight as some cold front goes through, next few days will only have a high of 52. You will see the TX people pulling out coats like they live in Montana or something haha.

Nice one! The total donation out of my company was just over 500 euros in the end, as the managers doubled the amount that got raised.

It's still in the 70's here during the daytime, we've got a "warm" week coming up.

I washed and waxed my car so it's ready for winter, now I just need to wait for it to get colder so I can put the winter wheels on.

We are finally dropping to mid-high 40s at night here, but it's still in the 60-70s during the day. My mum is getting freezing temps at night in the mountains of AZ already though. I hope she is staying warm enough, I now the chemo she is getting makes your feel cold even more than normal.

I got my first donation for my 60 mile walk next year for breast cancer. I was happy about that!

It's about 55 degrees at best now..

That's just about warm enough to do things outside,
but just about too cold to do them for too long!

Yeah, I myself have never done an engine, it was actually quite interesting to watch. There are so many parts to it before you get to actual block.
My knowledge of things I do myself are things like an oil change, change the brakes or rotors, I've done axle replacement, hoses, battery...basically your general maintenance wear and tear type stuff.

We actually got a temp drop here in TX, been down in the 40s at night and staying in the 60s during the day. It's a nice change for 90 degrees a little over a week ago.

nice! I'd love to work on an engine but I don't think it'd be running after I had my hands on it! that sort of stuff gets a bit too technical for me, even though I'm happy that I can do more things by myself compared to a few years ago.

I'm currently refurbishing my winter wheels. there's not a whole lot of work that'll happen aside from that as winter is starting to come in and it's getting colder and rainier outside..

that's a great amount to collect for sure!

I'm getting some more work done on my car now, painting the "YOKOHAMA" and "W.DRIVE" letters on the tires white, and I'm probably going to put the stock lip back on the bumper because I've ripped through the paint on the splitter that's on the bumper now, oops.

No that is a fantastic amount! I've set up the food drive at work, and so far we have raised $1,224.00 dollars and 312 food items for the food drive, and the food drive is going until November 14th, so I still have time to collect some more. The company I work for does have 84 people working for it though.

Yes it seems like a large goal, but I've done it before, I set up a lot of car washes and bake sales, etc to help raise money for the cause.

I've got 15" 6-spoke alloys for winter ;) I put a picture of them on the team wall.

You've set quite a goal for yourself! Good luck!
My company is split in two facilities, and in total we've collected just under 250 euros for cancer research. I'm very happy with that amount especially since our CEO is doubling the amount. :)

ooooh, are your winter wheels steelies like most people do?

I finally set up my breast cancer 3-day team and officially am collecting money to do my walk in November 2015. My goal is to raise the amount required to walk for myself and everyone who joins my team....so it will be a fun, inspiring, but no easy task. I have 2 of us on the team so far, but with the potent ion of 5 or 6 at $2300 a piece :)

All of my weekends (and weeks!) have been stupidly busy once again.

I managed to collect a decent amount of money at work for charity. I'm happy about that.
And I was working on my car these last few days, figuring out if my winter wheels would fit on the car with the airride setup. turns out it fits but with millimeters to spare. I put a piece of paper on top of the tire and lowered my car. I managed to pull the piece of paper out between the tire and wheel arch so it's got enough clearance to be able to park with confidence in the middle of winter. Definitely happy about that.

Charities are good. :)

There's enough completely selfish people in the world, but luckily not everyone is that way.
the collection box came in last friday afternoon so I'm going to talk to my colleagues tomorrowmorning. and I'll have put some coins of my own in so they can hear it rattle. ;)

That's great, getting your co-workers to donate as well.
Right now I am running our food drive at work, people can donate food or money to the North Texas Food Bank. So far we are doing great, we have raised over $1000 and 150 items of food in the boxes. The food drive is going till November 14, so we could still get a lot more in.

I'm also setting up to run the Toys 4 Tots drive around Christmas as well as an angel tree sponsor, which is picking an angel off a christmas tree at the mall and buying an underprivileged child Christmas presents that they need and want. :)

Thanks :)

I hope that show goes well, it's a good cause to show up for.

The company that I work at joins a run against cancer ever year.
I'm a terrible runner so I don't join the run myself, but I do always donate towards it, in fact I'm going to try and convince my colleagues to put some money into the box as well tomorrow.

I've been stupidly busy as well but pretty much making time for these shows, the season is over now though.

I won another prize last sunday, four in total (out of 5) this season.
My car has officially hit 'show car' status I suppose. :)

Last show of the season coming up this sunday, after that I've got two small meets with my own club and then we're done for a few months due to the winter time. :) I still have to see if my winter wheels actually fit my car, I know the width is alright but I'm wondering if they're low enough to still fit under the car when fully lowered..

I've heard of charity events happening in the UK as well, they're just not much of a thing for the Dutch I suppose.

I went to an event called Tuning Sunday today, and got a prize for being in the top 20 Best of Show and Shine. that's my third cup this year and fourth in total, I guess I'm doing something right.. :)

Oh, I guess those are more of a USA thing then. We do a lot of events for cancer and children hospitals, etc. Always raising money for something.

I'm headed back to Texas next weekend, work wants me back in the office full time. I'm working on setting up a community service group at work, so we can start giving back to the community. It should be a lot of fun, I like doing things for others.

Charity events aren't really a thing in The Netherlands, the last charity event I heard about was the Paul Walker memorial meeting, proceeds of that meeting would go to his Reach Out WorldWide charity.

yeah for sure, there are places I would definitely have winter wheels/tries, just where I live it's not really needed.

I haven't been to but one show all summer, but I plan to hit up the breast cancer show we always hit up in October.

Our show season pretty much ends halfway october then restarts in march.

Depending on how heavy our winter gets, we either have no snow or we have snow for nearly two months.
2012 into 2013 was extreme and gave us nearly two months of snow.
2013 into 2014 was warm and gave us barely half a day worth of snowfall.

Winter wheels are definitely needed here though, even if it doesn't snow, it'll most likely rain a lot, and rain at near-freezing temperatures isn't a very safe surface to drive on either.

Sounds like a good check for sure. Since it rarely ever snows or ices in TX, we don't do the whole winter wheels thing. Show season runs into November, and then we do Toys 4 Tots things in December. Our show season doesn't really end.

I'm having a case of sleepies today, I need a nap.

That's definitely more important than mods.

I'm pretty much done with the big stuff, got my sports grille and cleaned custom rear bumper last friday, followed up by a car show on sunday.
I've got one more show left at the end of the month, and two small meets with my own club, and then the season is over for me.

Before winter arrives, I need to check if my winter wheels/tyres will fit under my car, if I can't slam my airride down with those tyres, it'll be a good thing to find out about that before winter..

I'll make sure to share some pictures on the team wall.

AWESOME, your car is becoming amazing it sounds like. I haven't done anything to the Lexus yet, since I am in Arizona for awhile. My hubby did get the alignment fixed and new tires put on the box though and he says it is driving a lot better!

yeah as a fail-safe kind of thing it seems like a good idea.
Of course my system is brand new so I don't think it'll be much of a risk at this moment.. but that second compressor will follow eventually.

I'd like a second compressor some time as well, but for now I'm sticking to my current setup. I've actually gotten used to the noise that the compressor makes. :)

Thanks. I'm glad you had fun at your event. I probably won't be attending any for a bit, I'll be back and forth over the next 6 months. We are working on paying down some debt right now, so mods are on hold right now. We are buying one more compressor Thursday though, so we have two on the xB. It will fill up faster on the bags and then we have one to fall back on in case one fails.

I had a great VIP spot, didn't win any prizes but I wasn't expecting to win anything, the quality of the cars was very high at that event. I've got a smaller car event coming up this sunday, less cars, more prizes, we'll see I guess. :)

I hope your mum gets better soon!

woohoo, definitely coming along.

They finally released an air ride system for the Lexus. I am saving up for one..the entire kit will put me back about 3200. Other things have surfaced that require money recently, so we need to throw some towards medical bills right now, but the mods will start coming again soon!

Heading to the painter this saturday, and getting some details fixed on my airride system on monday!
Then 4 days of work and my holiday will finally begin. :)

Traveling halfway across the world for a show is a bit much for me right now. ;)
It's great to have a good turnout at a show for sure, My club is busy organizing its biggest yearly event right now, there's still a couple of regular meets until we get to that event though.

I'm unveiling the Modded Corolla tomorrow at a Toyota/Lexus-only car show. :)

woohoo...another bagged ride!
The company that we buy our air ride systems from is working on getting one together for the CT200H, I can't wait.
The weekend was awesome, the show was amazing, we raised over 3k for our show next year, and we had a great turnout! I love seeing enthusiasts come out from all over the country to spend the weekend with us in the Ozarks. You should bring your Corolla next year, we have classes for non-Scion :)

Our xB took 1st place in the Sciko class...which is the heavily modded class, that is a first for us, I was like woooooot! I will have to get a picture of the trophy posted.

It definitely was. :)

I'm preparing to strip some of my interior as my airride system will be installed this weekend!
I have to take everything out of the back and I need to take a part of the dash apart so it won't be in the way for the mechanics, the less time they need to worry about parts that I can do myself, the better!

You should bring it out to Asylum next year. It's always mid-June in Eureka Springs, AR. This year it is on the 21st. This is the big car show that I help run. It used to be an all Scion show, but we've started to open up to other models now :)

Just waiting on the tires now. :)
This weekend will be a slow one, I'm taking the weekend "off" for as far as that's possible.

After that, there's plenty of work left on the Modded Corolla to get it ready for its unveiling on June 28th and June 29th!

And more pictures as my wheels just came in today ;)

Hoping to get my tires later this week, and I'll have the tires fitted some time next week.
Then rolling "SUV-style" on 18's until June 20th.

I'm going with Nankang AS-1 as the interstates made me doubt the cornering performance (and they're non-directional tires..) the Nankang AS-1 have a better pattern on them, still rather silent, allow for faster cornering, and they'll still be able to let water run off.

I picked up a super rare OEM grille this weekend, been hunting after it for 10 months now.
I also picked up a 70's OEM "Corolla" logo which I am putting on the mesh.
A little tribute to the Corolla roots. :)

I've had Federals and they are noisy!

I'm rocking 215/35/18 on my xB…talk about no tire lol

Still stock on Lexus so far. The tC had 225/40/18, bit better on a little bit of meat on them. I usually put the higher end Yokos on the tC.

These are 1400 including tires, I'm spending my entire holiday pay on the car and probably going slightly over..
Then again I'm selling some parts as well so I probably won't go over too much!

I ordered the wheels two days ago, they should be in in roughly two weeks, so I'm already looking for tires, unfortunately 205/35R18 isn't a size that's used by all the tire brands, even several big brands that I've looked at don't carry that size at all.

So I've got a fairly unknown brand that I'm looking at right now, Interstate Tires, their Eco Tour Plus tire has a reasonable quality to it, decent on fuel milage, good on wet roads, and much quieter than my current Federal SuperSteel 595's which are super noisy and horrible on wet roads.

There are definitely some nice wheels out there, I've seen some really nice Rotas, and they are lighter wheels too. I would love to get some Work Seekers, man they would look sick on the Lexus, but I'm not down to drop 3 grand on wheels right now…really not in my budget.

I have decided on my wheels: Rota P1's in White. 18"!
Went and took my BC coilovers to the airride builder last saturday, talked about the new wheel size and I'm cleared to use those, despite having a higher ET value (ET45 as opposed to ET40 on my current wheels) they won't get close enough to touch the bags. :)

We have some BBS RS wheels in the garage we haven't test fitted on the Lexus yet, but we are considering them and will buy them from a friend.

Thanks...I think the green is a lot of fun!

Such a nice little green box! haha
I like the matching wheels on Fyre as well ;)

I posted a picture on the board as well, ignore the car but look at the wheels, those might become the new wheels for the Modded Corolla. :)
18" with a low tire profile, will probably look better in combination with airride compared to my current 17" rally wheels with a high(er) tire profile.
