shit man best for Performance is 15's, however those will look dumb on the street. If you want a nice looking and functional go with 16's lightweight and Performance tires. If you go with 17's you sacrifice some Performance for looks. It all depends, personally I want 18's or 19's thumbsup

smaller wheels and tires mean better acceleration. Bigger tires and wheels mean better top speed.

Since the celica is driven by a low torgue engine it is a lot more importent to keep the weight down on your wheels and tires right?
So I was thinking 16's and maybr 17's depending on the weight but my problem is that when I go looking at rims at different web sites, many of them dont post the weight of the wheel. So if you guys can give me a few good web sites to look at that would be great!

BBS rims doesnt look right on celica imo...althou they are light

Enkei make some light rims, and looks good

OZ i have no idea how heavy their rim weigh...

Konin (spelling) makes some light weight rims

stock GTS rim is 19lb (quoted) without tire

u can go find out the weight of those aftermarket rims and compare it with the stock ones.

If you're after Performance then go for the O.Z Superleggera III Forged. Without going into silly money its one of the lightest and strongest wheels you can buy. Comes with a wider rim at the rear too for better handling. And of course the 0.Z name thumbsup thumbsup
