If thats what you want. How are you going to rotate them? Why would you want two different size tires? I guess its just a personal preference for this, but I wouldn't do it. Thats just me though. Good luck with it. What rims do you have? thumbsup

Remember, Toyota celica is FRONT WHEEL DRIVE... so having larger wheels in the rear wont do anything for the performance your car - except unevenly wear out your treads because normal 6,000mi to 12,000mi tire rotation will no longer be possable to have done.

the shop selling you these tires should be well aware of this wave
Before you have the install done - ask they guy why he would sugest such a setup to a front-wheel drive car like yours? Also ask him if he had ever done this before with other front-wheel-drive cars and what where their problems...

its best to know exactly what you are getting into... especialy if you are going to spend big $digits$ on something your life relies on thumbsup

hey guys,

should you dont take a 215/45 at front, when you like to have two different sizes???

sorry for my ignorance. but im from germany and dont know your legal rules.
but dont the tires have to have nearly the same circumference (is this right?) than the stock tires. and especially between the front and the rear (for the exact working of the ABS)???
dont you have to adjust your speedometer if the new tires are more than 4% larger than the stock ones?

in germany its f*** difficult to mod your car. they have rules for every f*** bulls***! puke puke

p.s.: hope my english is good enough to understand!

in USA, it is not legal to have any part of the car's frame lower than the lowest point on your RIMs. happywink
