    Default My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM)

    Hey guys,


    This is my 1993 Toyota Corolla SE Limited. It's a Japanese import and has all of the features you would expect out of Japan, except it's now a little different from a bog standard grocery getter


    It was completely standard when I bought it, but I've done a number of mods to it over the last 5-years of ownership so far, including a 4A-GE 20v Blacktop swap at the end of 2012. I've almost reached my goal of finding every single optional extra that was available from new, including some of the rarest items, such as the AirFantasy fragrance control system.

    I went for a bit of a photoshoot a few hours ago. Been really enjoying these wheels since I got them a couple of days ago so thought I'd take some decent photos:

Excellent grip, no noise and the 195's stretched perfectly over my 8" rims. I'd definitely recommend them to anybody who wants a decent tyre without breaking the bank on some more well known brand.




    Sorry bro, I'm not quite sure what you mean?
    Aah I see, actually I have used a set of these on my car Same tyre, but in stock size 185/60/R15. The only moment I regretted the purchase was during braking. Because the car on which I Put them on doesn't have ABS. They lost traction instantly during an emergency situation. But that could be due to the weather conditions over here, I am not quite sure. For a car like your Corolla, maximum possible traction is a very significant factor. But since your car has a lot better brakes and an even slicker suspension system, I think you'll love em! All the best bro!

    He wanted to ask about any improvements in the acceleration after putting new wheels, since you downgraded from 17" to 16" wheels. By "pick" he means acceleration.

    Oh wow, nice. I haven't done any hard braking with these tyres but I'll definitely keep that in mind. I know that with my previous tyres (Archilles ATR Sport) they skidded quite easily, but that's due to my 275mm rotors and twinpot calipers with the lack of ABS, lol. I just have to keep remembering that in an emergency situation not to push the brake pedal as hard as I can as they'll lock for sure, but rather gradually press them as they don't require much pressure before they clamp on. Fortunately I don't drive this car in the rain as it's not my daily driver (I have the FX for that) so wet weather braking shouldn't be an issue for me with these tyres . Thanks for the heads-up bro. I know Evergreen do a more high performance tyre called the EU72, however I think they only make them from 205/40 upwards.

    Thanks for the clarification too. The size of the wheels wasn't much of a concern to me, but I really liked the design and the width. They weigh 2.2kgs less per wheel than my previous wheels so that should help with quicker acceleration. However, the ultimate reason why I got new wheels is because I wanted a change and wanted something that complimented the style of the car better

    Lol, what? The body doesn't touch the tyre at all and I don't have a CNG cylinder.......This car runs on premium unleaded fuel only.

    Haha. You sure have some speed killing brakes in there, why don't you hunt for an ABS unit compatible with your ECU? Because I have seen a JDM imported SE limited here in Pk (The only one I examined in person actually) and it had ABS. Not sure about EBD though.

    And surely, you're a better driver than me when it comes to fast cars. But what I always keep in mind is to maintain a safe distance with any obstacle with in the view. Road conditions are mostly poor here (in terms of unexpected surprises, I mean). So we have to be extra careful.

    With these tires on my car, I almost rear ended a Toyota Hilux. I braked hard and they simply went WEEEEEEEEE. That shouldn't be a problem with your car though, since its souped up to cope with speeds.

    However, I would really suggest that the next set of rubber you get be a rotational one, since comfort won't mean much to the rider of this Corolla I just put on a set on the same car and it doesn't skid even if I try, lol.

    And OMG thats a huge difference, 2.2 kg per wheel means over all 9 kg weight reduction on the drive train. Awesome, what could be better than a combo of looks an performance in one go!

    Retrofitting the complete ABS system would be too big of a job unfortunately. It's possible, but there's so much to change, including all of the hubs, and the wiring etc. It was available as an option on the SE Limited models. My Dad had a 1991 SE Limited (the very first of them) and his has 4-wheel ABS brakes and a driver's airbag, both of which were factory options. It is something I'd like to have, but in the big picture the swap would be too much of a headache in my opinion.

    Yeah accidents are all too common these days. Just yesterday I witnessed a car crash right in front of me when I guy pulled away from a stop sign but didn't look right and got t-boned by an oncoming car. I immediately pulled over to one side, got out and helped the lady (innocent victim) out of her car as all her airbags had deployed and her driver's side door was blocked by trees. Fortunately everyone was ok, but both cars were written off.

    On my last 3 sets of wheels on this car my tyres have always been directional, but you're right, tyre comfort doesn't count for anything when you're on coilovers haha. Yeah 2.2kg's per wheel is a massive weight loss, especially since it's on the very outside edge of the rotational mass. I haven't actually gotten around to weighing the wheel with the tyre yet, but I'm sure it will still be less than my old ones

    Being a big fan of your car,
    I am going to update audio system in my CE110 (YOM 1999, JDM, Diesel).
    I got my hands on to a made in Germany JBL amp (4 Spk+4 twitters) (OEM for peugeot 406 executive) ,Made in France JBL 4 component speakers with German Kicker powered Sub
    I would greatly value your ideas including some basic stuffs like a good place to fix the amp as well
    Great to hear you're a fan of my work . Good decision to upgrade the audio. I can't comment on the wiring side of things as I'm not sure how your JBL amp is set-up due to it being a factory accessory from a Peugeot, however I have my amp mounted under my front passenger's seat. It's out of the way and is well ventilated. Place the tweeters as close to the interior side mirror covers as possible in the front, and the rear ones on the rear parcel shelf or part of the rear C-pillars.

    My latest addition are these sweet looking velocity stack stickers I got sent over from Australia. I find they give the car a little bit more character and are a subtle way of indicating what's under the hood:

    A few small updates from the past few days:


    * I had the timing belt, water pump + rear hose, VVT pulley, tensioner, idler pulley and both drive belts replaced on Friday. The timing belt had been done in the past but when I got the engine there was nothing more than a faint outline of where the sticker used to be on the cam cover, so rather than lose sleep at night I decided to get it replaced and did the VVT pulley at the same time (no more rattly diesel noise at idle!). It was a pretty pricey exercise but for the peace of mind alone it was definitely worth it.


    * On Friday I fitted some 'TWINCAM 20' stickers that arrived from Australia. After putting them on I immediately regretted not putting them up a little bit higher, so being as fussy as I am, I ordered some more and will have another crack at it once they arrive. All in all I definitely like the look though.


    * Last but not least, today I installed a Pivot Speed Meter. This little device gets hooked up to the ECU's speed signal to remove the factory speed limiter and digitally displays your current speed, with the ability to measure the G-force under acceleration/deceleration and your 1/4 mile time.
