What size rims fit our celi's?
Hey guys what size wheels fit our celica's? I'm looking into some 18 x 7.5...what is our lug pattern and offset? or what offsets can we fit? Help!

Oh and anyone know how much it costs to powdercoat rims?

5x100 is our lug pattern. I seen people use -5 offset or 0 offset. GOLDCELICA or qt1ncelica can tell you more about what offset you can use.

I have 18 X 7.5 Core Racing gunmetals with 215/35/18 Falken 451s. Offset is 40mm and lug pattern is 5X100 (all celicas are the same). My ride's lowered with Hotchkis springs and the wheels fit perfect! thumbsup

What would be the best tires to go with a 18x8 40 offset rim if I want to lower it? I want to kind of get to the stck size of 16 if possible.

Is that size rim ok?

If you getting 18s and want it to be as close to stock size as possible then just go with the lowest profile of tires you can get. That's what I did (18/215/35)and the car sits @ almost the same height as when it had the stock 16's on. If you're getting 18x8 then you can get 18/225/35 or 18/235/35. Just keep in mind that the lower the profile the more $$$ you'll have to fork out!

Might rub, the most I've seen is 18x8. But I think it all depends on how low your ride is

Need some help concerning about tires sizes and offset.
I have 00 celica GT with 15" inches OEM wheels but I would like buy 17" or 18" custom wheels.
To be honest I don't know much about what would be the best option for my car,if 17" or 18".
Also what would be best option on *OFFSET*
A friend tell me not reccomend spacers or adapters,so the far I know I have to buy the wheels 5x100 but I don't know the right offset
Also...if I decided 17 or 18 what is the best tire size for the wheels..
If any body can help I will really appreciate.....yeah...I'm so new on this.
Thank you.

you could put 20" wheels on your celica with stock suspension. You just need the correct offset.

but in my honest opinion, the celica looks best with 18" wheels.
