Would you go with a 20MM or 25MM on a 5th gen GT (Liftback, narrowbody)?

also what is the difference between 5:100 and 5:114.3? is the second number the diameter? and I'm assuming the first is 5 lug.

The second number is the diameter. 5 bolts on 100mm circle or 5 bolts on 114mm circle.

Well, the best way is to just measure. I would highly suggest buying some from H and R, as they are of very high quality, and I think this is very important. I would also buy some adaptors, that is a spacer that has 5 new studs on it as well, instead of buying longer wheel studs.

I bought mine from options auto salon, google them, they're GREAT people. I'm running the 25mm version.

Kewl, Options is the link I used on this post, they seem to be the best price. Sean, did you get the ones with the 100 or 114 diameter? I probably should just get off my lazy ass and measure though.

Your bolt pattern is 5x100, so that's what you need.

What he was talking about measuring, was seeing how far you need to space the wheels out to be flush with the fenders, in terms of millimeters. :)

Just asking cause I don't know, but do narrow body Celicas really need spacers?

Yes, they do!

Also, yes, 5x100 is your bolt pattern.

Yes, they really do! I measured it looks like 25mm would look really good. My wheels are kinda strange as far as offset, I don't think there is too much...then again, I have been fooled before.

Thank you for the help everybody!

I wouldn't go with 25mm's on a GT narrow body.. I have 25mm's on my GTS and that looks good already. I would consider a 15 or something on the GT. Just my FYI to you as our GTS's are wider to begin with and we're (Sean and I) are using 25mm.

Right, the gts' are wider, but when I measured out...it looked really good. I'll have to investigate further.

If just the rear was wider on the GT-S your logic would be true but the front fenders are also wider, so 25mm would be fine for him. Keep in mind he's probably using a different wheel width and offset combo then you guys are using to match up with the front fender clearance. I'm assuming both the front and rear wheels are the same offset.

This is what it looks like now. I think I could kick it with 25mm pretty easily.

uhrmm... ok. Its gunna look bo bo if you have rims sticking out to far, I honestly wouldn't. But good luck, and i hope it is what you want. I'm glad I said anything anyway, I would want you to be aware that this might be the result or not.

Good luck.
