wider in the front for more traction, smaller tires to make the front lower.

dont need wide tires in the rear and has slightly bigger tires to accent the lines on the celica.


thats my opinion. rice


GRRRR i wanted those rims grin wave

the first ones cost almost 500 bucks more, so should I just stick with the second? or is there that much of a difference in appereance and performance?

it's not rwd so it doesn't help to have bigger wider tires in the back it probably causes more harm, if your looking at it from a technical point and trying to race but for appearence it will look good either way
