I'm currently looking to buy new wheels, i have found a great looking set and i'm almost set on buying them. My only problem is i don't want to find them then later on find a set that suits my taste even better.

I'm looking for mesh wheels that are 17x8 or wider, i would like a deep lip, not outlandishly deep but, im a fan of deeper wheels. If anyone knows of some good mesh wheel manufacturers that might have something to suit my tastes i would really appreciate some input

Thanks in advance

BBS LM is easily the best mesh wheel there is, very expensive though...if you just want the look there are tons of replicas(BB5 lol), or check out the Work VS-XX, they look like LM's but they don't have the step lip.

Whats your budget? What year and model celica do you drive on? If you want something that fits off the shelf, and reasonably affordable you are going to have to count your options.

This wheel is offered in 18x8.5 38et. Its not updated on this site, but there is also polished lip, and other colors.

I don't want to spend over 2100 dollars on the wheel tire package. I was thinking ill just get the tsw's because other money can be going elsewhere like an engine rebuild. When i have a lot of extra money, i might go with the work vs-xx because those bastards cost an arm and a leg. Idk, thanks everyone for your help
