You must have not done much research on here. There is very small selection for rims unless if you fell like paying quite a bit of money.

yea there aren't that many rims, but the ones that are available i think look great and it seems like they cost around 400 for a set. Which is pretty decent. There was a thread not long ago that showed some new rims that would fit on our cars i believe, I wanted to get them, but I have priorities with the car that I need to address first  :P

If you want light weight vintage rims, you'll have to look for specialty shops or check out other forums for people selling their rims.

there are a few options out there...the question is what are you willing to spend on a set of wheels? the konig rewinds and the sportmax 501 + 002 run about the same price...there are also axis OG line wheels that are not to high priced and maxxim screech's that are nice looking...work makes super nice multipeice wheels but 'spensive... RS watanabe = magnesium goodness...there are alot of options out there actually when i think about it....think a good thorough google search would shine some light on the subject....

The OG rims are nice, but there is one BIG problem with them...they are the wrong bolt pattern, unless if someone found a way for to get them to make a 4x114.3 bolt pattern.

The screech's may look a little funny in the back since they are a slightly higher offset than stock. The reason why I keep leaning towards the Sportmax 002's is they are a 8inch wide rim w/ 0 offset.

Here's a quick reference for what is available and where to get them. Apparently every year new companie start to sell low offset wheel with the 4X114,3 pattern.

My list isn't up to date, but it still a good start.

http://www.celica-gts.com/forums/index.php...&hl=eagle+alloy

I personnaly runs on Eagle alloy in 16 X 7. They weight too much and they look funny. They also are PITA too clean. I'm gonna get a set of Sportmax 002 as soon as I have the money.

I've been looking at either the Konig Rewind in 16 or the Rota RB in 16. I'm leaning more towards the RB since I can get it 8" wide and it looks just like a Panasport FS, one of my most favorite rims ever :P
www.takumiproject.com frequently has some selection of different rims with the right offset and bolt pattern, and carries the RS Watanabe wheels that looks like Rewinds, but they're hella expensive....

I like the Rewinds, because the look like the old magnesium Mini-lites - but I'm old school.

I'm kinda confused.  I think the Rewinds & Rota RBs both look like Panasports.  I love 'em, but I'm not sure that's what I want on mine.  I hate the lousy wheel selection we're stuck with.  If there was a way (sorry, easy way) to make 'em 5x4.5", we'd have a LOT better luck.
