    Can't go wrong with 16x8 +0's, i ran XXR's with those specs with great success. The style you are looking at is a replica of the CCW classics. You prolly want to space the rear out 20mm, either with a ARP studs and a slip on spacer or a bolt on spacer(not my preference.)
    Here is a guide i did on slip on spacers for the rear: https://www.celicasupra.com/forums/s...l=1#post851393

    16s are kinda the worst of both, a little too big for the look, with few tire choices. That's what I decided anyway.
    wheels and tire and brakes is a pain in the ass, if I did 17" bronze centers with a black lip it would make the wheel look smaller? not sold on anything yet??

    I do want to get a new one. What one are you running and where did you get it, and about how much ?

    Yes. This username has been used since I was 17 years old, so it's not fitting anything here or there.

    Some good info and knowledge on these forums, aka the sacred texts.

    You should get the ATI just so you can mount the engine down lower in the car.
