Jeep TJ 'Ravine' 15x8, ET25 w/205-55-15. Currently using 15mm adapters in front and 25mm adatpers in back. No real lip trimming necessary, but I did cut about 10mm off the rear lip.

Shoshinsha mark ��

Most of this is correct, however "高齢者マーク" (koreisha mark) is for old people. It used to be a yellow and orange tear drop shape, but now it's a four leaf clover looking design with a light and dark Green added into the mix. It's suggested for 70-74 year old drivers, and mandatory for 75 and up.

Shoshinsha is to demarcate a *young* and/or inexperienced driver, mandatory for 1 year after obtaining their license. EDIT: It's also more informally known as a Wakaba (若葉) mark.


(Personally i think it's a good system)

“The dying leaf” as they are known locally.

Actually, Some old drivers prefer to use the koreisha mark because they don’t want to be tagged as “old” yet still want people to be aware around them.
