they are 17 x 8"'s with 5x100 mm bolt pattern and a 38mm offset will these fit ok under the celi? also if i got the TRD drop will it have any adverse affects?

O.K. It's hard to imagine those wheels on the car, my first reaction was I didn't care for it. Something shiny I think would look real good on the car. What I've always done when fitting a set of wheels to my cars, I will get the on-line photo, and photochop it onto a full side-view of my car, and then make my decision. Good luck!

white on white is the SHIT.. IMO... I would totally get white rims of some sort... and BTW.. I have a TRD kit also... DAMN I WISH I GOT WHITE.. that looks awesome.

Just make sure the white is the same tone (I think a bone white, with white-white could look dirty).

yeah, like I said before... I LOVE the white on white look... I have actually considered painting my Celi white and picking up some Volk wheels (would have to be intead of the turbo kit though, so I don't think it's gonna happen).

do you or anyone know if with these (17 x 8"'s with 5x100 mm bolt pattern and a 38mm offset) will these fit ok under the celi? also if i got the TRD drop will it have any adverse affects?

and finally is MOMO a good brand to go with?(i found an awesome deal on these that i dont know if i will pass them up- they sell for about $200-300 a piece & i can get them for $750 shipped.)

EDIT// i know its MOMO, i just want to know if these are pretty good quality wheels thats all

Go for it! I don't think it will really be an issue lowering the car with TRD springs as long as you go with 40 or 45 series tires.

hmmm... i think that size and off set is perfect for the celi. not sure though, but if i remember correctly it is the same offset as stock wheels. Also there will be no adverse effects from dropping it with those rims, cause the TRD springs are a very minimal drop, but ofcourse you will be more suseptable to scraping. Damn that is a nice chop, Car looks sharp BTW. oh yeah and MOMO is a very well known name in the racing industry so i don't think that they would ruin it by making fauly or crappy rims. hope everything works out for you. smile Rims look good on your car, although it does look like your front tire is flat in your chop
