Rim

Hi all, I am a new comer. I have a Year 2000 Celica and now I am considering changing the Rim. I plan to buy a 17" Titan from OZ
http://www.ozracing.com/usa/car/index.php?fam=1&wheel=21

I would like to know what is the optimal wheel width (7.5 inches or 8 inches?) for my car? I was told that the wheel offset is 35mm and I use a 225/45 tire? I have no idea on the effect of these on the performance of my car and will appreciate if anyone can give me some advices.

Thanks a lot!

I am sorry, the width of this rim should be either 7" or 8". BTW, what are the pro and cons of having a Rim (and hence a wheel) that is wider?

not digging the wheel, but go with 8" wide if plan on dropping it an 1", go with 7.5" if you plan on dropping it a lot. this way you wont have to worry about your wheels rubbing with you fenders
