are u looking for originals only or are reps ok? there are a few places that sell reps if you don't mind a bit of fitting and fixing. I don't know about their fitment though, I've never had reps.


Reps are ok, I wouldn't mind trying to fit them.

thanks a lot for quick response. oh it would be tough job then.
if i could get hold of one, how can i replace it? just unbolt, detach and reattach things?

QUOTE (Box @ Mar 4, 2018 - 2:28 AM) *
Unless there's someone with new old stock that wasn't thrown away, your only place to get a replacement will be from a parts car. Maybe could use the same piece from another car of the era, or make one out of a sheet of thin black plastic. Odds are the same piece was used on any automatic Toyota of the time with a 4-speed automatic.



You can use this as a reference to dismantling it. lots of pics n different angles.

I wanna try to stay with the 5x100 pattern I have currently. The issue I'm having is I'm browsing through bearings locally and I'm noticing the bearings slip over the top of the shaft for the wheel hub when normally, they are supposed to be pressed in. This leads me to believe that A. the wheel hub's shaft is ground down from wear (which I doubt) or B. the bearings I'm getting locally are not the correct bearings.


Fronts have to be pressed in, Rears can be replaced with a hub assembly.
I've done the passenger front on my old Celica, and almost did the a driver's rear for my current.

I know they have to be pressed in I was just looking for a source where they aren't crazy expensive.


If you have a FB, and donít mind waiting 2-3 weeks. Sometimes sooner.
Heís inexpensive and owns Jap Yard full of 6gc. Can pull anything and ship anywhere.

How far did you roll your rear fenders?

I ran a set of 18x7 +46 with 215/40/18 on mine years ago with a 25mm spacer to flush me up. Effective offset: +21

I was already rolled, but had some rubbing still... I found I had to roll the front side of the rear fenders, all the way to the side skirt. This solved my problem.

Maybe you're not rolled far enough forward around the arch.



Just checked the rear and yeah itís just the top middle section rolled when going down the arch it does fold back up,
But that area clears the tires just fine, I can see the linear marks on the old tires and itís coming from the top. It looks like the fender is sitting on the tire but really itís curving over it. Iím thinking of adding just a little bit of camber to the rears and hope it wonít look too bad.

Anyone know where I can get a decently priced wheel hub for the front? Mine has developed these grooves midway through and I'm not really sure if it's a deal breaker.

Suggestions welcomed.

Thanks,
Brandon


Could do a 5x114.3 conversion, replaces all hubs n bearings and parts are local. you have a GT so it'll be cheaper for you.
These are the notes I've gathered on it, when I was interested in doing it.

1994 Rear Disc Conversion for AT200/1.8L/7AFE/ST/Celica/Hatchback/5SPD/
-Parking brake cable and parking assembly, back plate, and caliper setup off GT/ST204/2.2L/5SFE.

1994 5x100 to 5x114.3 Conversion(No Adapters)
-2Front(95-00 Rav4 2.0L 5DR) Wheel Hub & Bearing Assembly.
-2Front Rotors(91-96 Camry) IN 275MM.
-2Rear Rotors(91-96 Camry) IN 269MM.
-2Rear(91-96 Camry) Complete Rear Hub & Bearing Assembly.
and then wheels in 5x114.3

Parts were fairly cheap but it was the cost of labor that made me sway from it.
I believe its 100% all there, I suppose everything you get bolts up perfectly, will have to double check the thread to confirm.

This past 2 days I've gotten my wheels on, and all 4 fenders rolled.
*Car is lowered to fitment of 225/45 tires.
*Perfect height and not too low for me.

*Wheel specs are 225/45/17 on 17x9.5 with 32 offset.*
Fronts didn't clear the brake caliper and rear was scraping the coil over springs.

*Added 5mm spacer on all 4's, fronts cleared the brake caliper, rear cleared the spring.*
After this, I started getting tire rubbing only on the Passenger Rear just over small dips n bumps on the road,
just barley scratching it but with the wheel spinning at 30-65mph, sounds so dramatic and horrible.

*switched rears from 225/45 to 215/45*
This cleared all the rubbings issues and lets me road dive without issues, but now I got a good little wheel gap, and I'm not liking the stretch look, missing the 225/45.

*Current Setup
-Fronts 17x9.5 225/45/17 with 5mm Spacer Offset=27
-Rears 17x9.5 215/45/17 with 5mm Spacer Offset=27
*Also no alignment yet.

Before I get my alignment, I want to know if I took off the 5mm Spacers and added a 3mm all around instead would this clear?
I want to add the 225/45 back on the rears and only changed it because I had work that night and didn't want to risk my daily.

The new setup would be:
-Fronts 17x9.5 225/45/17 with 3mm Spacer Offset=29
-Rears 17x9.5 225/45/17 with 3mm Spacer Offset=29
and then alignment.

Anyone have thoughts or experiences?

I bought 3 74 Smd Led bulbs (link below), when I got the climate control out the Led bulbs are 4x longer than stock.
Am I suppose to sand them down, to fit or would I have to solder them in?
Need advice on these cause their already here and the climate control is just chilling in the trunk.
Also, if you have a link to better bulbs that are direct fit and don't require soldering, I wouldn't mind buying again.

^This.

Another option to the Work or ESR is the Rota Torque. It's the same style with the added benefit of having been around for years, so there are plenty of used sets around for cheap.

FWIW: If I was going to spend $1k on a set of wheels, I would look into the used JDM wheel market.

If you are on fb, you can look at either of the groups: Rare Wheel Awareness or 5x100 Wheel Classifieds. There are plenty of deals to be had, plus you'll get the quality of an authentic wheel.


Sweet didnít know they had that, Iíll join em.

it would be better if you were to post images of the wheels you are considering


Hereís the 3 Iíve narrowed down too, so far. Iím sure thereís more iíd like just havenít found em. Looking for 17s.

1. Esr Sr08-
Straight Concave, may not be as deep as I want it to be though.

https://m.ebay.com/itm/ESR-SR08-17x8-5-30-5...4-/263148019578

2. Cosmic Racing-
Has Lip with Concave but not sure could be too much.

https://m.ebay.com/itm/Cosmis-Racing-XT206R...6.c100890.m2460

3. Xxr 555-
these were perfect until I found out the lip size for 17s are 1.75inches, so may be flat face with a lip.

Whatís your ideal set up?

Iím in search of wheels and leaning towards a Concave set up,
But my friend is saying I need a lip to match the curves of the Celica.

Iíve seen many clean 6gc with all of the above.

Looking for inputs on all, and any.

You know what really looks cool? Functional rim and tire setups. You can be more flush and have better handling than stock if you do it right. Can't remember with the 6th gen Celica, but if you get the offsets right you should be able to fit 8-9" wide with a 225 series tire and it be fairly flush without rolling. I guess the main thing is for the love of all things holy don't have that much tire stretch... Depending on the tire 225 on 9" is bad enough, but some with wider tread sections than others it doesn't look all that stretched. Not trying to tell you what to do, it's your car, but if you care about how the car handles and feels to drive at all then you should strongly reconsider what you're wanting. Plus you should be able to find something 8-9" wide in 5x100 to your liking, paired with some good summer tires it'll totally transform how the car handles and feels only in positive ways.


Yeah been looking at the conversion and rear disc conversion costs and labor is gonna be a hole in the wallet, I might just run these 17x8 30 offset concave wheels instead and their in 5x100, so itíll save me a bunch.

As far as I know the Camry didn't have drums in those years, even if they did I'm sure no one has done it and all the info out there would be for discs. You'd need the parking brake cable and parking assembly, back plate, and caliper setup off a 6th gen GT then the Camry rotor. Also I'm fairly sure 10" wide with +20mm offset won't fit, unless you're going to pull the Hell out of the fenders or cut up the car and put on flares: http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showto...t=0&start=0


Alright sweet didnít know about the parking cables n backplate stuff, glad u are here lol. I found a member with 17x10 20offset all around on his 6gc and Iím liking it. Just different wheel style Iím getting.

Though having the ST you'll also have to do the disc brake conversion on the rear: http://www.6gc.net/howto/convert_rear_drums_to_discs


Is the disc conversion mandatory? I see the post says to buy Camry rear rotors, so idk if it will convert to disc with them or stay as a drum set up?? Iím confused.

Is it possible to change my bolt pattern from 5x100 to 5x114.3?
The wheels I want are in 5x114.3 17x10 20offset.
So if I got the conversion adapters from 5x100 to 5x114.3 it would add 25mm.
It would make the wheels I want w/5offset, which would poke like crazy.

***For AT200/1.8L Hatchback 5Spd***
