I am looking to buy these wheels for my GTS. Which color would look best on a Liquid Silver Celica? I was thinking bronze....do they have a gunmetal? Or hyperblack?
Anyone have a silver celica with these wheels? What size is good for 17s?
17x7.5 +35 offset?? On 225/45/17 or 215/45/17??
Lastly, where is a good place to buy these?
Celica is 5x100 right?

Bronze looks wack on Silver. You have a good variety to match your Silver Celi. They make them in Silver, Hyperblack, Flat mat black and the black with polished lip.

The black with polished lip should look nice.

Yeah you can get 17x7.5 35ET or you can even get 17x8 which is what I have.
The wheels I'm running are 225/45/17

Yes they do. :D

Here's the picture of Hyperblack off the 5zigen website.

Hyperblack


It'll definately look nice on a Silver Celica.

Here's a picture of my 17x8 just to give you an idea on how they'll sit with the 225/45/17 tires

^ True, I take it back. I forgot that the 5zigen bronze is kind of a dull anodized bronze color. I just think it wouldn't look right if the bronze was more vibrant bronze like a TE37 or something.
