19's wont fit without modification, so i would say go with 18's if you are looking for a bigger wheel.

With that kinda drop I would suggest you go with 17's or 18's because you will definetly rub with 19's with that kinda drop plus your getting a kit so I suggest you go with smaller rims...

i have the same springs on my celica. It's dropped about 2.5 inches all around and i have teh buddy club 2 kit also. I'm running on the stock 15" rims. I make it around here if i'm careful but i know i limit myself a lot of places for being this low also. But in the end, my car looks badass. thumbsup

ride is superb!! It rides really smooth on stock shocks. I use to have ground controls coilovers on my Eclipse and it was so rough..but i'm surprise that these tanabes ride so smooth especially how low of a drop it is. I know a bunch of other tanabe owners say the same thing.

naw, i never bottom out. I just got a simple alignment after about three weeks after i got them put on. I had em on for about six months now and they don't give me uneven wear so my camber is good. I drive a lot too and i never burn my tires so they are doing great. Everybody thinks that 2.5 inches is low but it's really not. I think it gives you that perfect dropped look. But pics are coming guys.

So you didn't put any camber kits on? I just ordered the springs and it should be coming in this coming Tuesday. I was worried about the camber in the back, as everyone saids that it will wear out my tires quick.

no all i did was get an alignment. Just make sure the people who do it really cares about your camber. The place where i did it does a bunch of things such as install turbos, superchargers, nitrous, run dynos, and they have this digital alignment machine. They made sure it was perfect because most places will do it just to make sure it's close not perfect. Make sure you do it at a reptuble place.

i'd go with 18's over 19's anyday. and your stock struts should last about a year depending on how old they are and road conditions, but then again, you could go out the next day and blow one out.
