Hi, could anyone help me regarding tires and wheels to my celicaGT.
I'm thinking of Bridgestone Potenza re050a PP 225/45/18 tires and Motegi Racing DP20 black 18" wheels. Any other suggestions? Opinions about this complectation? Main questions would be, will they fit and won't be too big for my car? Won't they rub on turns to car's arches(or how they calls)?

Wheels:

I have a 2002 Celica that I upgraded to 16" wheels. I was considering 17's but several places told me I might stand the chance for tire rub by doing so. I purchased a set of MB Seven X wheels with BF Goodrich Traction TA, 205/50R-16 tires. They look great and give a good ride, wet or dry. I am not a street racer by any means, but occasionally I like to hang it out a bit, and these tires handle just great. I know you may want to go for the looks of the 18", but I think you may run into some problems, so do a lot of checking at reputable dealers before you lay down that kind of cash. Good luck though on whatever you get.
