yea thats what im gonna get the black ones. i had a body shop help me understand about the tire sizes but all they did was say adr is shit and your lucky if you can find a round one. im still gonna get them because i heard only good things about them everywhere else. one question if the bolt pattern matches and there 18s and the tires come on the rims in a package deak does it matter what size the tires are? if the rim fits on the car and the tire fits one the rim shhouldnt it work? some sites say only 17s will fit or you can only put them on the old celicas.

check this thread out. the black rims on the celica are the ADR visions, and it has not been chopped. only the bronze rims are chopped.

Visions are nice, but I think the lip is too thin.

If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

225/40/18

the first number "225" is the thickness of the tire, i'd go with 225 too.

i forgot what "40" meant

225 = tire width
40 = 40% of 225 (.4 x 225) = 90 tire thickness
the measurements are in millimeters

thanks for the clarification DisGqBoi thumbsup

i've never heard/seen about ADRs chipping.

I've heard a lot about Tenzo's chipping, breaking...you name it.
