19" rims

I am planning on putting 19" rims with my celica, I am getting a widebody kit for it, I was wondering can anyone give me the wheel size, and offset, to make them flush with the flared fenders. The body kit is the 8 Piece Limited Edition Widebody Blown Series Body Kit the prototype that krazy kustomz is developing now. Any inputs?

I have no idea about offset but if you are going widebody you better get some rims with a deep dish. You probally wont be able to go over a 35 sidewall. but i'm not to sure

that kit is tight, very nice and orginal, but IMO, its not turning out the way all the pics look like, oh well.

try going with 19x8, with a +10 or +15 offset, you might even be able to get lower, i saw someone with the APR body kit and he had like -10 or -5 offset, crazy deep dish!!

I was also looking at the rim and tire specs for the APR widebody celica, and the guy hat 19X8 in front and 19X10 in the rear would this staggard set up work better?

8,5x19 with a 30 offset fits your stock arches. Check with krazy kustoms how much further their arches extend outwards compared to stock. Then talk to some one who knows a thing or two about offsets, and you should be able to figure something out.

If I'd have to guess, I'd say 8,5x19 with a 10 offset. But, as everyone else here, I have no clue 'cause I don't know how much that kit builds on your stock arches. (shouldn't krazy kustoms know a thing or two about what fits?)

Good luck. Make sure you don't go too wide. Tires scrubbing on glassfiber arches = not a good idea.

If you're spending that much cash on a body kit - getting 18's would just be stupid. Get 19's. 18's look like they're some tame stock option from toyota.

well I guess if you don't mind a Performance drop get the 19s hopefully they aren't too heavy.. and wasn't there a thread about the offset so that you didn't have to get as wide as a 9" or 10" rim..
