Racing Hart's Rims

I have an '04 GTS and want to put new rims on. I am looking at some Racing Harts, but am wondering if anyone has any experience with them ... if they are worth the dough. Also, I want 18's but I was told I can only put 205's on the car ... any input?

Thanks!

How come you can only put 205s on them? If you want 18s, atleast get some 225s!

yeah that's what I thought about the 205's ... the Toyota dealer told me anything bigger than 205 would rub ... I know very little about tires, that's why I'm asking. When I check sizing for tires and wheels, the sizing for 18" wheels calls for a larger tire anyway ... have you success with 18's and 225's? Better yet, if anyone can offer a link to tire education so I can learn. Thanks all!

whoever told you that at toyota is an idiot

at the toyota here, they have a "TRD Celica"..its a GTS with all the TRD bolt ons, Carbon Fiber interior, and the 18" TRD 5-spoke wheels WITH 225/40/18 yokohama paradas. obviously if they dont know the own parts they are equipping and manufacturing in their vehicles, then obviously they shouldn't be working there.

SSR > RH grin

If you get the piece versions it wont cost you that much. I think they're usally in the $280 a wheel range.

Shhh...no one is suppose to know grin

























Well, since the cat is out of the bag, a local guy was selling them at a great price that I couldn't resist frown They're still in the original box & I havent taken them out 'cuz I'm debating if I should mount them on my current tires & sell my 5zigen wheels. Or if I should still keep using my 5Zigen's for street use & save the SSR's for the track.

I like the CP-035's in white, but the lug pattern is only 4, I give up ... maybe I will have to get CR's ... I guess more research is in order. Any input is greatly appreciated. confused
