hmmm...i say lower it first...get used to ur 15s, ware out the stock tires..lowering it makes ur stock body look more aggressive, it's cheaper and helps cornering..IMO, custom rims on stock height looks ghetto, and u'll be worried about gettin jacked or scratching it...this is only my opinion...if you are a wheel lover..then go for the rims..cuz i know some people who take better care of their rims better than their whole car..hehe good luck!
I have a Silver/Blue 03' Celica GTS. I bought the H&K 1.5" lowering springs and the Koni struts. I don't have any problems in driving or turning. I also got the 18" Motegi Racing Rims. It's been awhile, but I believed I lowered my car, then got the 18's about a month later. *Also recommend the Yokohoma Parada Spec-2 (Low Profile) Tires. Looks good on mine.
i'm probably going to lower my car this summer too, that gap is ridiculous but i don't know how much i should lower it. i want to get some 17's too. i keep thinking a 1.5 drop wouldn't be enough but 2 inches might be too low. what do you guys think?
