i think a 215 tire is tooo narrow for a 8 inch wheel. 225 is better adn 235 is awsome.

Good choise. I have the same size. A little too big in diameter (20mm) but won't give any problem with 35mm lowering. It will fill the wheelcases very nice thumbsup

This may be a stupid question but how come you have two different offsets?

HAd 2 orders from 2 warehouses. Each had a different listing for the celica for offset. Both would work. I was gonna add h&r spacers to push the rear out anyway. The difference is minimal. You had to bend & twist to tell that that the rears sit out more.

225,35,18 will keep the speedo most accurate. 225,40,18 will make it read slow (~2mph?). 215,40 or 35, 18 will make it read about 0.6mph too fast. I got shop price on the 215,35's or I would have gone 225,35.
