help me out with this one...

ok now that i have my TRD exhaust the next mod will def be rims, most likely 17"...i am having a tough time deciding...i like the look of a 5spoke but lately i love the look of a 7 spoke...racing hart would be my choice but i cant find a 7spoke with our size bolt pattern...so i have narrowed it down to either the RH Z5000 or ADR Intense 7spokes...the ADR seems pretty cheap, can anyone tell me if these are good quality?

lastly, i know the decision is mine and many of you will say go with whatever you like best, but here i'd like to hear your opinions...red 2000 GT...what would look better a 5 spoke or a 7 spoke? thanks guys!!! thumbsup

Do you have pics of what they look like? I don't think that I have ever seen a 7 spoke wheel before.

I have a red celi also...I am getting these...

I was going to get these...but I am not down with this many spokes anymore and because it is black...less spokes that are bigger will look better.

I have seen many celicas with the Z5000 and it is kinda getting to the point where it isn't so original anymore. I just think you could keep looking at various brands of wheels and maybe you will find something really nice...I never knew about Zeo and they have exactly what I am looking for. ADR makes good stuff so matter what the price is.

yes they are a good company...but mostly I saw people unsatisfied with their shipping...found things missing and not in good condition. That's the only reason I won't buy from them plus I found a cheaper site...way cheaper.

I'm going back to a 5 spoke wheel. I'm partial to 5 spoke wheels, but the ADR's look sweet as well. 7 spokes look good too thumbsup

DON'T BUY TIRES FROM WHEELMAX. They are very cheap and crappy. I got my rims from there, the rims are fine, but I got the Nankang tires that came with it. Now my ride is all bumpy and crappy and my steering wheel keeps rattling like crazy. I went to a tire place and they said it was the balancing, so they balanced it, but the problem was still there. Finally,the guy told me that it was the cheap ass tires and that was the reason. And my friend got the Kuhmo tires from wheelmax - exact same thing happened to him. GET SEPERATE TIRES!! AND DON'T BE TOO CHEAP OR YOU'LL GET SCREWED LIKE ME AND MY FRIEND DID!!!
