16 Inch Rims?
Hey There,

I have 16 inch rims on my Celica. They look lovely anyway. Am planning on painting my calipers dark red. Would you say bigger rims are better or should i stick to 16 inches???

Help please???

Depends what you whant, 16 for Performance but they look WAY
to small in my opinion, 17 is somewhat in the middle, 18 is very nice and 19 is kickass but not recommended for daily driving.

r you going to race ur car cause if so then keep ur rims the size they are 16

if you want a little bigger rims and still want to race get some light weight 17s

if you just want for show the 18s thumbsup

16" only looks small with a bodykit. They look fine on cars with stock body parts or the action package.

Yea im actually growing to love the stock gts wheels. I have them on my celica with a TRD kit and it slammed. Looks fine to me. Either stick with the 16's or get some lighweight 17's.
