There seems to be a few distinctive styles for wheels. You have your mesh wheels like SSR Formula Mesh and others. Then you have your Watanabe 8-spoke wheels and all their knock offs. Then there are other random wheels that always look good like Advan A3A and Hoshino Impul G5. What are you looking for?

I dunno, I think the ones that Toyota put on look fine and 99% of aftermarket ones looks ridiculous. The best approach would most likely be to look at everything available and decide what you like best.

Yeah for cool OE looks, you can't do any better than a set of Celica Supra wheels.

Oops there's another tip! Flares or not? 14x10 -30 offset, yeah you need flares lol. 14x7 -5 offset, not so much. Do you want to run wide-body panels or flares? Or do you want to keep a stock body, with maybe some roll and stretch.

With stock body for aggressiveness you can comfortably fit 9J -20, easy with stretched tyres.



If you're trying to do just a mild fit, 7J or 8J. I think 8J is better and you can use a 195/205 and not have issues, roll the inner guard though so you don't cheese grate your tyres!
C's Garage kesev panovan IIRC 8J up front 7J rear.
