i dunno.. my first pair of rims were einke... i wouldn't recomend them ever.. just didn't like the quality. KONIG's are the way for me now... check out tires.com for some other choices...

I think they look good - kinda like the GTS wheels. If you like them - go for it. You should only try to please yourself.

kewl , thx for the help, btw those enkeis are from tires.com...i like the style, but am concerned with quality (since you usually get what you pay for, the konigs are more i believe-not the tantrums but verdicts which i like)... has anyone else had enkeis before or now and what did you think of em ??

thx for the help all again grin

I have EnkeiRSF2s I love them. They are comperable to the Konigs. and the 3rd lightest rim I could find for my car (Volk, KonigR5, then EnkeiRSF2) I was torn between the Enkei and the Konig R5s (I can't see dropping 3K on Volk, because I hate the way they look). The R5s were lighter, but I didn't like the way they looked in person. I really like my Enkei rims. Some people tell me they look like stock, but I don't think so at all.. And besides it's MY CAR. smile so do what you want thumbsup

20 + smaller rubber, you might just about match the weight maybe a little heavier, you shouldn't notice too much acceleration loss. Stock rims weight 18.2lbs, however, stock rubber is light weight also, hopefully you won't notice too much of a performance hit. 18!!! BIG on a celica... post some pics, I wouldn't mind seeing it.
