azntrd2k1,
I have those same spacers. I bought them before I decided not to be a cheap ass and get some custom rims to fit my widebody. If you're thinking about getting them to fit on a stock body celica, you may want to think about this...
You will need to add however many milimeters the spacer is to the fitment offset. For instance, on the celica, you are looking at an optimal size of 17x8 +35 offset. With the adapters, you will be looking at 17x8 +65 offset. This will look kinda odd.
Your other option would be to pop off your hubs and have a machine shop press them into a 5x114.3 bolt pattern. My boyfriend used to do this with trucks back in the day.
Hope this helped!
Keep rollin!

+65mm offset because of diff calipers?! that's crazy, almost insane that means that your rims will have a weird ass curve to them, i dunno... i'm just a girl, i probably don't know what i'm talking about, right?

+65 is an insane offset. There would be a huge gap between the hub and the face of the wheel.

The STi come stock with a +50ish offset because of the size of the calipers.

They will sit 1.18" (30mm) farther out than they do right now.

The +65 offset is correct if you want it to sit flush (8" wide wheel), and i don't know of ANY wheel that comes in that offset (unless they were custom made). Even the wheels made by Rays for STi max out at +53.

According to the 5zigen website, There will be a 17 inch application. My boyfriend used to work for Zigen and he said he'd go and check on Monday.

Most likely, however, the guys over at 5zigen were referring to their initial shipment. I am looking at the website right now, and it doesn't look like they know exactly what's going on with that because it says that there won't be any 18s in that offset, and it just doesn't make sense not to bring out an 18 inch application for that color and wheel.

Finally, I did some calculations, and if you're planning on running this adapter because some companies don't make an application for your car, the closest 5x114.3 that you would be able to pull off would be for the s2k. They come with an extraordinarily high offset. Just make sure that you don't get anything bigger than 7.5 or else you'll run into complications.

Hope this helped...

I get it now. I went to 5zigen that one time to pick up my wheels, I saw a drawing of your car there. It was still a concept drawing. I guess you guys were planning on putting a 3s in the celica. Are you guys going to make it happen?

No, but if you know anyone that is interested, Aerodyne has successfully done the swap here on the West Coast. Pretty good stuff.. They are based in Garden Grove, Ca.. We have something in the works that will justify my boyfriend's ideas on the 2zz
