    Help me choose wheels!

    So my girlfriend's daily is a light blue 95 Celica, which runs great but has seen better days aesthetically speaking. As you guys surely know; however, a simple drop and some wheels can really make a tired runner look like a million bucks.. My problem with her car is choosing a good-looking wheel that suits the Celica's body style.. Any ideas?

    LOL; thanks for the post/thread. I could/should have written the exact same thing. Please, everyone, ideas???

    I am thinking it needs to have a lot of spokes like Volk CE28Ns. But my GF's car is, somewhat ratty, and a set of Volks would cost more than the car (IMO) is worth...

    What is the difference between 95 style to early 2000? Figured this was a newer car, so the options are wide open.

    95 has the quad circular headlights, really round body panels, kind of a downsized, less-attractive supra shape.. the early 2000s cars were very angular and wedge-shaped with triangular headlights and a really low roof line..

    LOL... "...kind of a downsized, less-attractive supra shape..."

    Yeah, perfect description... it's this puffiness that makes it hard to choose the right wheel to match.

    I meant on your statement of period correct and rims. I didn't think there was alot of differences between mid 90's to early 2000 rim styles.

    Have you checked 6gc forums? Lots of builds there.
