Wheel size question?

I'm gonna need bigger wheels now since I fry the shit out of them 1-3 gears. Was liking the following set up...
18x8 front
18x9 rear
(2)(225/40/18)
(2)(245/40/18)

Will this fit alright? I imagine I will have to get my fenders rolled... OMG these wheels are sick as hell...

you're tires are gonna wear out faster 'cuz you cant rotate them properly, you have two different sizes. but if you're doing it for looks, then it'll look alright.

they'll be able to fit fine without your rolling your fenders.

ditto about wear on your tires though...your rear tires will be fine for just as long as they always do (usually about 80k miles) but your front tires are going to go relatively fast because thats where almost all the wear occurs in the celica thumbsup

You might need a bigger offset in the back since it is a wider rim

wouldnt hurt, but it's really not needed.

stick with 35mm-45mm offsets. the celica is fwd so the rear wheels don't take much stress anyway.

and 8" in the front is not enough difference (the stock is 7.5") to hurt your car.

Like said above its FWD so bigger wheels wont help. I would get all the same so you could atleast rotate them.
