Those look really good. A nice alternative for us 90-91 4 luggers.

I was gonna say they look like 7th gen wheels. Very nice choice!

Nice fit. I think they actually look better than the 7th gen Celica wheels I've seen on people's 5th gens.

The 7th gen ones tend to raise the car too much unless you also adjust the suspension.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the MR2 have different wheel widths between the front and back?

Edit: According to tirerack.com, they are two different sizes.

Front is 185/55-15, rear is 205/50-15. Granted, that's just the tires; the rims may have the same widths.

But the 15" rim size (as opposed to 16" from the 7th gen Celi) explains why the look so good on the 5th gen. Nice find!

those do look good, just could use a larger offset in the rear, otherwise looks very nice!

I would just put spacers on the back. I like them too.

Not to hijack the thread, but are wheel spacers bad for the bearings?

I've been thinking about it too.

Our Celicas, even though they had these relatively wide rears, had tires two inches in from the body.

Always looked silly to me. Spacers should make it look right.

But I imagine that the weight of the car would put extra shear stress on the rear if they're spaced too far.

What's the rule on the safety vs. better looking rear end with this?

Sorry for all of the carriage returns. If I don't, you'll have to scroll right to read each sentence.

They don't, the guy that had them bought them from someone who paid to have them polished.

The more I see these on MK1 MR2s, the more I want to see them on more Celicas.
