I've come across quite a few threads in the past couple of days with users rolling on 7th GEN GT-S rims...
If you've got em, flaunt em!

I'd like to see what all the users have done with them (painted them, lowered with them, etc.)

I'll start w/ mine:

I gotta post up...



btw: 7th gen wheels could also be taken as GT or GTS wheels just so you know, in case you were only looking for the GTS's smile.gif

The GTs look the same but they are only 15" wink.gif
I have no doubt you could have chosen to upgrade from the dealer but from the factory GTS had one style and GT had 2 IIRC - one of which looked like the GTS but was 15" instead of 16".

I've only seen one style of GT wheels for the 7th gen and they look nothing like the GTS's.

But they DO have 15" version - my old friend had them on his GT and I was gonna buy them until I found out they were not GTS rims. I know the ones you are talking about and they are UGLY!!!!

Nope - they're just like the GTS ones but 15" - similar to the MRS wheels but 5 lug [You guys are gonna make me bust out my '00 Celica Brochure on you aren't you?]

Snap - so sorry man - didn't know [But yeah I'm not a fan of those at all - some GTS got those and no wing too]

I've never seen a 15" version of these wheels either except on the ssIII but they are all painted white.

be warned, if your car doesn't have skirt or aint lowered, it might look a lil high up on stock GTS rims.

As opposed to how high up it looks on stock 94-99 GT-S rims which are 15"??

I'd rather have stock suspension and 7th gen 16" GTS rims than the 6th gen 15" 5 star rims...

... whos with me!? laugh.gif
