Careful, if she likes the car she might kick you out to make room for the car.

John used to be a member on here. smile.gif

Youíll have to ask Chris at the Midwest Meet about how he found out 96+ seatbelts wonít click into 94-95 latches. laugh.gif

For your wheels, youíll probably want spacers. 17x7 +40 will fit but will be near stock fitment. My Caldina wheels are 17x7 +45 (so 5mm more sunk in than your Konigs) and while they fit, they donít look good at that offset. Iím running 15mm spacers to make the wheels effectively +30 and front fitment is okay, but rear should really have a 20-25 mm spacer for better fitment. Iím not after stance or flush fitment so Iíve left it, but youíll see what I mean when you get the wheels mounted. Just a little bit more flush will make the car look a lot more aggressive.


John has taught me so much! The guy really knows his stuff. smile.gif And yes, he did mention that he used to be involved in the 6gc world.

What kind of spacers do you recommend? From my research, it seems like I should go with hub centric bolt on spacers. I have not yet looked into brand and quality yet.

She'll need spacers for that hella flush fitment. 10mm front and 15mm rear.

Annette, where'd you get the camber bolts from?


I'm confused. Shouldn't the front and back spacers be the same?! To get the factory flush fitment? My fenders are not rolled or anything.

I got Moog camber bolts from Rock Auto - the website said they were "performance" parts. And I know, I know, Ted said it was a waste of money, but I wanted to get real camber bolts so that I can hopefully understand how they work, by having the actual part, and putting it on myself. That's how you learn right?!

You got the brakes, you got the coilovers, now you got the wheels. next logical step is an engine swap! wink.gif


Uh huh. Baby steps. Baby steps.

And somehow you've convinced me that this may eventually be a good idea.

Repetition and persistence work! Who knew!?

Man, I miss my car.... Stalking project threads doesn't help either.


I'm sad I never got to see your Celica. Is there a build thread for it?

At least you can live vicariously through all of us! smile.gif

I personally just have 15mm Ichiba slip-on hubcentric spacers with extended studs, but I wouldn't go any bigger than 15mm slip-on spacers. Link to the spacers I have

Based on this, a 15mm spacer would put you about where you need to be.

Ideal Offset in Relation to Wheel Width (standard ride height):
Width - Offset
7.0"-----30mm with 15mm spacer (effectively 15mm) *
7.5"-----31mm with 10mm spacer (effectively 21mm) *
8.0"-----33mm with 05mm spacer (effectively 28mm) *
8.5"-----35mm
9.0"-----42mm (probably too wide no matter what offset)

This will make the rim almost flush with the side of the body. These offsets and offset/spacer combos will prevent the "sucked in look" that the factory wheels have.

Ideal Offset in Relation to Wheel Width (lower ride height):
Width - Offset
7.0"-----36mm with 10mm spacer (effectively 26mm) *
7.5"-----33mm
8.0"-----40mm
8.5"-----46mm *
9.0"-----53mm (probably too wide no matter what offset)

The rim will sit just behind the fender. In order for the rims to tuck into the fender well on lowered cars the the rim must sit back into the wheel well by 11mm compared to the standard ride height offset recommendations.

* Clearance issues prevent the use of most rims with offsets lower than 30mm. The spacer will actually lower the offset and at the same time move the rim away from the offending components.
* 8.5" rims may or may not fit on lowered cars.

Offsets shown are positive.

Offset is measured from the wheels center line to the mounting surface.

Ideally getting wheels that fit without spacers is best but we can't all get that lucky.

Per Alex's comment, we need a different offset in the rear to get flush fitment. For instance, my current fitment is 17x7 +30 which is close to flush but still slightly sunk up front, and noticeably sunk in the rear. I'd need another 5mm up front and another 10mm in the rear to have better fitment. This is the best picture I have to show how the rear looks more sunk than the front because of the identical offset.

Photobucket destroyed my build thread, so there's no real point to go back to it. Here's a quick storytime:
