Hey! I have a question. I went to this gangsta rim shop 2 days ago and they offered me four brand new 17"x7.5 five spoke silver rims (dont know the brand) /w brand new 225x35x17 tires. would they fit my 2000 celica gt /w stock suspension?? or are they too wide?
THey offered the four rims+tires for $700 including putting them on and balancing.
Can someone help me??? SHould I get Them?

Well...the tires are a little big, but they will fit. The width is fine. The question is are the rims actually worth 700 bucks? What brand are they?

225 will fit, but i'd get a larger series tire, the tire is gonna look too small in the wheel well if you don't have a drop. I got 225/45zr18 with a 2" drop and everything is fine!!!!!
