if you 19 inch rims, open this!

if you have 19" on your celica, let me know how much you lowered it and if you have any problems with the wheel well or turning or bumps. i have the TRD lowering springs right now and want to lower it more but im afraid of problems.
let me know, thanks.

8,5x19" ET30 rims on 235/35 tyres - lowered the car about 2.4" up front, and 2.8" rear. NO problems, what so ever.

If you'll have a problem or not heavily depends on what width and offset your wheels are.

I guess it hurts that some of us can afford to buy some new cool rims, instead of having to paint our stock wheels to try and make'em look new, huh?

Most of us can afford 19" rims but prefer not to get them. The tire is about as thin as paper, they are heavy and look funky IMO. 19's are cool if you dont drive your car hard and just use the car for shows. I dont understand how you do not rub with 19" wheels and the drop you have. Do you have pics of your car or no?

19's isn't a problem, even if you use your car every day. I've used the celica for a year now, driven it every day to work etc, on 19's. And my last car (a volkswagen golf) also had 19's, and used that every day.

I returned a complete body kit I got last summer because of fitment issues, and ended up driving around with the car almost stock - so I wasn't very happy with it - and ended up taking only 1 decent picture of it. And here it is:

For the pice of 19 i can get 18 or 17 plus coilovers and tires and my shit will look cool also so I say get more for the buck 19s or any rim wont make the whole car its just a part of it.
