17's or 18's on Celica's?

I'm not sure if 17's or 18's are better for my celica. I love the thought of bigger is the better, but im afraid if I go on 18's my celica won't turn as good (u turns). rofl

I like 19's, but I think that 18's look much better with a good drop than 17's. thumbsup grin

Yes, but it also depends on what tires you get. If I had 18's I would get some low profile ones since they are thinner and would have less of a chance of rubbing. thumbsup

Im not getting this turning thing. So the bigger rims you have also increases your turning radius? Also, how does a drop affect the turning radius?
