You should be able to do some drifting up there in canada, when it would snow back in chicago, my friends and I use to call up eachother and go ebrake around, we thought we were so cool back then.

Oh yea, we were hehehehehe

Hey, what about 19x8.5" rims with 225/35/19 tires? There is a set in the for-sell section, but I'm afraid they'll rub on a stock suspension. Any thoughts?

LOL wow those CE's look just like mine. (offbrand)

What did you pay for them? What is the weight? Are they monoblock aluminum?

For me 2000 shipped just for wheels (new) 11month wait.
Light as ****, yes I believe they are monoblock, its etched in the wheel.
Mines still look better. :gap:

Hmm, we have the same lip size since your offset makes up for the loss in width.

18x8.5 +44
18x8 +38

It evens out.. :)

I ment 17x8 not 8.5


not doing any drifting in the celica :p

Can you post some pics of your wheel set up, im looking into getting new shoes, 17x8.5s, and im trying to price it all out for what ima get. Wanna see how the 215s look on your ride, even though ima have 8.5s. But more so the 40 side walls, since ima have the same diameter rim, 17s.

Thanks

If you want to know the exact speed difference use this tool here:

http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

Plug in your OEM tire size and then the tire size you want to use.

225/45/17 and 225/35/18 is almost perfect for least speed change and maintaining your gearing.

Anymore pictures showing your setups everyone?
