Here's a couple of pics since some had expressed interest in seeing them when I got the Casinos on. They're 17x7.5 w/ 215/40-17 Kumhos. Rides and handles good. I waited till I had time to buff and wax it before I got pics! We got the car about 2 months ago and it has a whopping 34K miles on her now! We have gotten nothing but compliments and many people ask what the car is and are surprised when we say, "Just a Toyota!" Now if I can just convince the wife to let me lower it!

Try what mine will look like if I can ever get the wheels and tires on without something else going in the meantime.

Hammer: 17" RTX (though I'd swear they're Falken Torque 5) and custom red with red/gold flakes on a liftback.

Galcobar: 17" American Racing Casino and Velocity Red (think RX-8) with fine gold flakes on a liftback.

Meanwhile, I can still dream -- now I know how Casinos looks on a standard-body Celica.

Looks pretty sweat how much did the rims set you back?
Well, after pricing them on Summitracing.com, Jegs.com, eBay, etc, the cheapest source I personally found was at Sears! I think it was like $620 for all four. Plus tax, of course, but no shipping! Bought the tires at TireRack though...still much cheaper there!

Tire rack is the best
. The shipping company ###### up, so tire rack almost sent out a complete new set for me. The tires magicly arrived so I didn't need it.

Best price I've been able to find is US$112 per wheel with free ground shipping to the 48 states -- so US$448.

Then I have to take them across the border and pay tax (7% federal, 7% provincial) and duty (7%)...but still heck of a lot cheaper than anywhere in Canada, and I'd have to pay tax on those anyway.

What Kumhos do you have on it?

I won't tell you anything about the exorbitant sums I won. If you want to play it yourself, you can try it without any motivation. But one thing I can tell you about myself:
