17s.

and since your car is spec blue..go with the aluminum looking ones. personally, i think those would look best.

18's in black or bronze, the silver one's IMO is too reminiscent of the factory GT wheel

IMO, Bronze/Gold looks funky on celicas...I dont even like them on WRX's. I'd go with the aluminum ones for the Blue, that would look the best. Black would also look good.

Everyone has silver colored rims...

I think that on the darker colors (blue. black, silver) darker "gunmetal" rims look good. On lighter colors (red, yellow, white) white rims look best.

Just a thought. Oh yeah... I hate those yellowish bronze colors in any rim. Just looks sorta cheezy to me.

Since you're car is black i would get 'silver'
(black is way to dark, and bronze doens't match with the blue metallic!)

Get 16'' and slam it!
Everybody gets big rims these days,
and these wheels are lighter, so you've got better handling!

not gonna get silver its a toss up between either gold or gunmetal the wheels are made by RAYS engineering the same company who makes volk wheels the model is united arrow s05 and i migh go with the 16's for performance reasons.

I like the black a lot for your car. Where can I find those rims anyways? Those would look pimp on a celica.

the gold/bronze (whichever it is) would look more original, even though WRX's come blue w/ gold rims. Those are nice rims though. I'd say any color but black if your celi is blue

yes. but you have to ask yourself "does original look any better?"

if you honestly answer 'yes' THEN you should get them (hey, everyone is different and has their own style). but being unique for uniqueness sake is NEVER a good idea.

The gold is original but it's not crazy, but about being unique for uniqueness sake i agree. i wouldn't put spinners on a celi, it'd be unique but not a good idead, the gold would be unique and a good idea
