Show your custom wheels

I'm looking to get new wheels for my celica. I would like to see what other people have on their celica so I can have some ideas about what wheels will look good on celica. Please post your celica picture with custom wheels. Also list what type of wheels and size.

well the gas tank on the celica is supposed to be on drivers side. maybe this is a foreign version and driver's side is on left? confused anyway, it might not even be a gas tank because supposedly (according to the website this is a before/after pic) this is the same car..and i don't see the gas tank on the lower picture.

It does looked reversed...the antenna is on the far side of the car in the pic, which is on the passenger side.

so it must be a foregin spec car. looks like those 2 cars aren't before/after after all...the s2000 antenna in the lower pic is on the opposite side than that of the stock antenna of the top car. 2 different cars.

don't know. he could have switched it. its supposedly brent's car (tronix) and he made teamcelica.com. its modded out like crazy so it wouldnt suprise me if he did do a switch...but on the site he still has 2 pics of a stock car..and the antennas are on opposite sides. (i would think this was before modding was started) tronix

I'm going to have to say he definitely reversed the pic...I don't know why he would tho.

In this pic he actually does it correctly, notice the antenna on the passenger side, and everything looks correct.

In this picture he reversed it, just like the pic previously posted...it looks like the Toyota badge is in the right corner...it's supposed to be on the left (yes, he could have debadged and swapped them, but why?). Also notice the rear wiper on the same side as the gas door...which is the driver's side. Plus, the exhaust is on the same side as the antenna (passenger side).

Don't know why he reversed a couple of his pics, but it looks like he definitely did.

how can you reverse a pic? i know what photochop is, but it doesnt make sense that you should be able to reverse it.

How about Rota SDR's.

Rota's are extremely light and stronger than the Montegi's.

I'm going with gunmetal cause planning on getting carbon fiber Hood and smoke the head and tail light. I was gonna go with chrome or silver finish but gonna black out few parts of the car. I hope my car can be like the blue celica pic. That one looks nice!!! thumbsup

Get Gun Metal SDR's. I am sponsored by Rota so I can get some pretty decent deals if more than a few people want them.
