Are you going to have any other exterior mods? I think the second one will look better with a body kit/stock body. I think the first one would look good with a Carbon Fiber Hood. thumbsup

DEFFINATLEY the TZ-5's. 7 spokes are too crowded for the celica in my opinion. and plus, i see those 7 spokes EVERYWHERE. or you can save up some more money and get some racing harts smile w00t im soo excited about mine. they show up tuesday! pics will be up as soon as they are on.

thanks for all the feedback guys thumbsup i like them both because 1) silver looks good with my car's color and 2) there is a metallic area on my Altezza lights that is gun metal in color. i'm leaning towards the TZ-5s tho, since i kinda like those rectangles behind the spokes wink

i do plan on slapping on an action package in the near future. possibly a carbon fiber Hood, so yeah most likely the TZ-5s. tehy were my first choice till the BK-7s came out smile
