Hey guys, I'm looking at some 17" wheels for my '90 Celica. I currently have the 14" stock wheels on it, but I've come across a few deals which I can't refuse (4 ROH wheels, 4 Tyres, Fitted, for $1400 - usually $2400) Which wheels do you think will look better on my Celica? The Fury or the ShiftR? I really like the ShiftR, but I want some more opinions from others. PS: If you don't know, ROH are one of Australia's biggest wheel makers, they're great quality rims. I'm only getting them for a bargain because my dad's mate owns one of the retailers.) :D

Thanx guys,

also, R.I.P Brocky

Holy clean car! I like the first ones better though. I'm not a fan of the small spokes.

Hehe, thanx mate. My dad is a car interior/exterior detailer, the car never goes a week without a proper clean :D

In terms of the wheels, I'm just worried that the Fury may look a bit too fat on my car. I reckon they look too thick, but they may look better when on the car? I dunno; decisions, decisions...

I like both but if I had to pick I'd go with the 1st ones... The thin spokes dun look as good as thicker spokes on our car... Onli thing wit the first rims, the color of the rims on the white might look a little awkward.

I like the first rim (5 spoke) one better. Good job on blurring out the plate for the first pic but not the second=P

Yeah I know, couldn't be bothered opening PS again. :cool:

I'm going to go to the dealership today to look at both wheels in the flesh. I'll get them to put both of them next to the current wheels, see what they look like. Hope it turns out good.

I'd go with the ROH's too, and unlike ghost, I think the color of them with the white would look sweet as hell. Personal taste really.

OK guys, just got back an hour ago! I had them put both wheels up to the car, in place of the old wheels. The Fury looked really good, better than I expected. But, in all honesty, the Shift R blew me away. The Machined face looks sick, and the 7 spokes really stood out for me!! :D :D

I handed over my $1400, and away they went. 2 hours later, and I now have a whole new car. It looks awesome, the wheels are sexyyyyy. My dad said the car now looks lowered a bit, must just be an illusion of the eye. I'm happy with my choice, my car now looks much meaner than before!! I'm a happy guy today :hehe: :hehe: :D :D

I reckon they look bigger than 17"; must be another optical illusion :D

That's me for today, thanx...:D

It's the way the spokes extend all the way to the outside edge of the rim, creates a longer line for the eye to follow.
