      this is my egg. i want some new (much wider/low offset) wheels, which will be soon as i sell my old tein coilovers (when i find another seirous previa owner). i will also primer/seal it with some flat black til i can get some more money to finish my paint (all done myself).
      look at page 2

      i want to lower my coilover settings more but i would have to park outside due to the entrance of my apt bldg...i scrape everytime i enter or leave now. i think when i get some wider wheels it will make it look lower.

      I've got to be honest with here...I really fought hard to click on your thread. Previa? Who cares? But I friggin love what you've done Reminds me of the Renault mini-van with the F1 engine stuffed in it

      Turbo minivans are the coolest.

      I don't really know too much about Previas....other than the fact that I know there was a supercharged All Trac version that is quite rare to come by these days....looks pretty nice...for a minivan... ...j/k.

      Yes, they were.

      Ironically, this ad was sitting right next to my computer as I read this post (from the back of a July 1994 National Geographic):

      My uncle has a 1986 Toyota panel van. It ain't pretty to look at but it still runs. He says one time he took it into be serviced (AC compressor went out) and the mechanics at the Toyota dealership had never actually worked on one, guess that shows you how reliable they are.

      I love it! Who would have thought that R32 wheels would work so well with an egg ... But yeah, definitely some wider wheels with more negative camber, and then you're all set .

      Is it just me, or did that question sound kinda dirty??

      I've always had a place in my heart for the Previa. My best friend's parents owned one, and I thought it was way better than my dad's GMC conversion van.
      be brave and be kind.

      Ah, no.

      I love it. just need to get some silly wide wheels and go with some extreme negative camber.

      nice !
      i had a 95 le/sc with leather, captain chairs and the double sunroof. the only problem that i had was keeping my friends out of it.
      i even put on a set of 18" adonis wheels that i had laying around.
