OEM Scion Tc rims, 215/40/17 Fuzion ZRi tires.

Didn't notice much different in the ride comfort so I'm pretty happy. I put the same air pressure as in the glove compartment for the regular stock tires (32 front, 29 rear). Not sure if I'm supposed to put more since it's a low profile tire.

I wondered if the Scion tC rims would fit. They are kinda sharp.

I want a GT-S...:(

How do you like the fuzion tires, just out of curiosity?

The rims look much better in real life. I thought they would look out of place, but then when I put them on it threw all the regrets away. I'm glad I didn't get the gt-s rims.

The Fuzion tires I didn't really get to test them yet. Tirerack says to go easy on the tires for the first 500 miles to break them in. Don't know why. They're definately grippier than my old nokian NRWs.

In tests these tires beat out the more expensive Yokohama AVS ES100's, not by much but they scored higher, also they're better in the rain. I was looking at Sumitomos and Kumhos but the Fuzions seemed like a better deal.

is your car lowered? Looks like a healthy gap in the side view picture.

My cousin has a tC and was debating whether he was gonna buy new wheels, so I might get his wheels just to switch off to whenever. I'm glad they fit!

Looks WAY better than I thought it would.

It's not lowered.

Yeah I was thinking they would look a little out of place but I got a good deal on them so I thought what the hell anythings better than the stock 14s.

those tC wheels are gorgeous on your car. i've been curious about them for quite some time now. i NEED tires for my car and i am trying see if i can upgrade from the stock 14's in the process. i was looking for something that would be a direct fit and those wheels were on my list. i honestly didn't realize that they were 17's, but i guess that's just a bonus. 15's would be more than enough for me, but these are great.

anyway, i just wanted to compliment your car. :)

Thanks, I don't like how they came out in my crappy pics, they look better in real life.

I don't know if they would fit your car. I think 90-91 Celica ST's came with 4 lugs? You would have to change your hubs to a 5 lug setup in order for those to work.
