Falken or Yokohama for sure, 225/40/17's would be my guess on size. I had Falken 225/50/15's and those were the best tires I've ever had.

Good luck thumbsup

215/40 - I'd usually recommend Yokohama Parada Spec 2's but I've recently heard that they fade quickly...

I used to have Kumhos esctas on my old car, now i have falkens on my celica. I thought the kumhos were a lot better. they are stickier and wear better imo.

go with 215/45/17 24.5 overall diamter or
215/40/17 will be 23.7

stock overall diamter is like 24.1

Thanks for the advice people, I'm looking into it, I just got my rims on friday. Also my rims size is 17x7 can 225 or 215 fit that? I thought it was 205 that can fit it.
