Hey there guys, i am currently planning on doing a hellaflush setup on my celica(will be running megan coilovers). i am currently debating on wheels size and off sets. (also i will keeping these rims for when i purchase an FR-S)

i am looking to buy either of these XXR 522, XXR 527 and XXR 526

i know 18 will fits and also would make my rotors look tiny and ugly since i dont plant on upgrading brakes i am leaning towards 17's. i plan on putting space on all four corners. now the hard parts its the offset this were you guys come help me out ! what should i know about offsets when buying rims.


XXR 526 - Front = 17x9 (35mm offset ) 5 to 15 mm spacer ?
Rear = 17x10(20mm offset ) 5 to 15 mm spacer ?

XXR 527 - Front = 17x8.25 (35mm offset) 15 to 25 mm spacer ?
Rear = 17x9.75 (25mm offset) 15 to 25 mm spacer ?

Here is a run down of what offset is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Offset_%28wheel%29

And here is a good read on measuring rims as well http://www.streetdreams.org/tech.php

hmm i believe you have a gts right? i would ask zen. (he has a yellow celica)

he has xxr's that sit pretty flush. From there you can decide if you want more offset, for more of a hellaflush look.

Run less camber than me and it would be pretty flush. Well, with a taller tire too.

No. Hellaflush is where your rim is the wrong width and offset and you have to run way too skinny tires stretched on way too wide rims coupled with too much negative camber just so you won't rub. It's retarded IMO.

yes some more posts :)

@ koreanjoey, how low was your car dropped ? did you have any rubbing issue ? i am going for a similar set up, i am going to pick up 17x9 XXR 522 flat black on my white car :) but i was thinking of running 235/45. ill be running 35mm spacers on the back also so i can make the rear come out a bit more. since ill be going with coilovers i am going to drop it as low as possible. btw what rims are those on the pic ?

i am not going to be hellaflush, just flushed. some cars look nice hellaflush imo. would not recommended for DD unless feel like going through tires like no other.

Speaking of, what are you using to gain so much camber anyway?

Ghost, lower doesn't mean better... Car is just sitting on some H&R drop springs, about 1.5 or something like that. I had some rubbing in the rear, cut off wheel took care of that. The wheels are Team Dynamic Pro Race 1s.

Crash bolt or bolts, I can't remember now... Not the optimum way to do it but it's my street car with the occasional practice/lapping day.

They're just the narrower factory strut bolts.

Not really hellaflush but I like it better than my old sunken look. Hope it helps

I know lower doesn't mean better, I am just doing it for the looks and how much is for a set of those rims? From what I read they are pretty light.

Sorry bdweezy, thats what I would call hellaflush.

You have to run skinny stretched tires cause you wouldnt clear if you didnt. And if you ever bump a curb or anything, the lip of your wheel is gonna get it bad.

I really just am NOT a fan of that look. I dont understand why youd buy 9 inch wheels and then run 215s, or 225s on them.

I'm not a fan of stretching tires but my old wheels were 7.5 wide and the tires were still fairly new so I decided to use them on the new wheels. All my fenders are rolled and I plan on using 245/40/17 for my next set of tires sometime over the summer and hopefully I won't rub, because I'd rather have a larger foot print with better traction hopefully.

So what would be the safe way?

I wouldn't call it unsafe... it's OE camber correction bolts. The camber plates are way, way easier to adjust.

herrafrush is stupid IMO...

If you can visibly see the camber angle, not only is the car going to handle like shit, but its going to look like its taking a shit too...

See how the hellaflush kicks out the camber???

Looks like a mercedes or a bmw thats out of alignment...

You... are fail.

Visible camber:

AutoX alignment:

PS: I measure and adjust the alignment specs using a pyrometer. So yes, this IS the optimum camber for this specific spring/shock combo.

Don't talk about handling without knowing what you're talking about please.

Visible is one thing, too much is too much.

I don't personally like the way that much camber LOOKS, so if it's just being done for looks.. I don't see the point. If it's for performance reasons, then obviously Joey's right. I assume there are drawbacks to running a racing alignment for daily driving, too.

I don't know if they're even produced anymore.

They were originally purchased through www.rocketeerperformance.com but they don't list any wheels anymore.

They were originally 5x114.3 wheels that got drilled for 5x100.
