as long as they are 5 X 100 pattern they will fit.

also, try and get a wheel that's offset is between 35mm and 45mm--those are best for the celica.

since they are 18", obviously you will need low-pro tires (i would recommend a lower tire sidewall than the 40 you listed)

for some reason i was thinking the stock sidewalls for the gts alloys with optional tires was 45, not 50.

in any case, good post thumbsup the overall diameter will only be an inch different (1/2" radius as you said) so you should have no problem whatsoever...but bottoming out will still occur on larger bumps, just be careful.

definately. i too, bottom out sometimes with my 205-50-16s but it's only on the bad ones.

sounds like you'll be pimpin thumbsup

also, i tried finding some info on the enkei rp08's to see if they came in a 5 X 100 pattern to fit the celica..and wheelspecs.com didnt have an info and a few other places that did have the wheel didnt mention much else besides 17 X 7 & 18 X 7...but oh well.

good luck with it.
