Mods for the upcoming winter

Yeah i know...summer hasn't even started, and i'm already discussing mods for the upcoming winter spineyes (crazy dutch people)

But then again, you just can't start planning early enough!

I want to change the veilside gen.-1- front with the gen.-2-
AND...I planning to lose the wing...yes the almighty sky scraper tongue
It's not that i don't like it anymore...personally i just love it!!!
But i wanna go wing-less for next year!

But since i've only got 16'' (wich goes with the racy looks) i have to upgrade them to 18'' else it won't look good IMO

And now the problem starts:
i don't have a f!@$cking clue, what kind i should get...

I've thought about the following:

G-Games 77 Wolfs (2 piece - Gun metal)
[img]http://store2.yimg.com/I/hopup1_1785_110475527[/img]

Volk Racing GT-N (Gold)
[img]http://store2.yimg.com/I/hopup1_1785_44639960[/img]

Volk Racing Te37 (Bronze)
[img]http://store2.yimg.com/I/hopup1_1785_51877480[/img]

Advan model 6 (Gold)
[img]http://store2.yimg.com/I/hopup1_1785_73227870[/img]

And i love the:
Andrew Racing Baccarat's (19'') but sadly those are over my budget!

But if any off you know some better/nicer rims...i'm verry open to suggestions right now thumbsup


As you see in the pic below my car is violet, but if you would check my profile its dark gold (yeah that's the special effect of the lambo color)

You have some price differences between those wheels.

The G-Games cost like, $200 each, the Advans will run you triple that much (each, no tires). The Volks will be easier to get and less expensive than the Advans, but still pretty expensive.

I might be interested in you OZ wheels, without the tires. How much do they weigh?

Hmm, to be honest I'd choose none of the ones you have selected. If I 'had' to choose I'd choose the first ones.

Why don't you drop over at J&R car design in Ridderkerk and check what they got, they are very cool people.

Hey IMMO wave,

The thing is...i want some special imported rims (from JAPAN), that they don't just sell anywhere here in The Netherlands...i want something you don't just see everyday underneath a car!!! (and i really like volk's...but we all got different taste...that's why i have a sky scraper at the rear of my car grin)

But for instance: i've got the OZ's at the moment, but how many car's do you see, that have them over here??? 13 of a dozen spineyes

Also...i don't like polished (or chrome look), i want something that's

gold / gun metal / bronze (my favorit)

All this talk about G-Games being played out. I researched them, but never saw them on a Celica around here maybe because they don't even compare to Volks. I see Volks on a lot of different rides these days and it always brings a smile to my face. Do yourself a favor and get a high quality, light weight, good looking wheel from Ray's Engineering or from Advan if you can find the right size/offset. Don't even bother with the other choices. That's just me.

I think your ride would look awesome with the Volk Racing GT-N (Gold) IMO since you say your car color has a gold/violet

my votes is stock wing over that:/ good idea on wing change. im so anti metal wings unless you have the motif of a stock car which is crazy hard to pull off unless you have stupid amounts of money. as for rims i would vote on the 18" konig trouble rims. i love those. hard to find for our cars but look AWSOME

5Zigen Hyper 5ZR are a realy nice 5 spoke wheel that will complement your car. It's not as "racy" looking as the others, but it's definetely something new & different.
