Not my favorites but ... not bad!! And, at least they are 0.5 inch wider than stock ..

I'd definitely choose after market lighter 17x7.5 rims over these, but it's most likely not in the same price range!!

I'll be honest when I saw this thread I thought..."no no no, those rims look horrible on the FRS, why the hell would they look good on the celica", but some how in the first two pics I dont mind the look of them that much. A drop would help, but a drop helps any rims look better. I think I agree with the other members and just say stick to the stock GTS rims powder coated with a drop.

There's a silver GT in town that's been running around with them on for some time. It really doesn't look that bad. Sure, it needs a bit of a drop, too. But it's not bad.

Ugly. That is a company's idea of what the "younger" audience they are trying to win over are into. It's like some goverment agency trying to appeal to the younger crowd about why they should vote/pay taxes using slang and catch phrases popular amongst today's youths. Or in this case, they'd probably use memes to tell people why media file sharing is bad.

Toyota not only has some issues with the designs of their vehicles looking like crap, but they have issues in choosing decent looking wheels. That style was [not] cool back in 2005 for the ricers and donks.

How did the rims fit? Did you need spacers? new lug nuts? Clearance issues? And did you notice any difference in the handling? Thanks

These frs wheels look better on the celica. Even though I am not a fan of them, i certainly do not hate them.
I am wondering however, WHY do you care what others say? If you do like them, keep them. It is as simple as that.
