Stock 6th and 7th Gen Celica Wheel Info

Postby b00staholic » Tue Sep 13, 2005 2:17 pm

Hey guys,

I'm interested in getting a set of dedicated autocross/track wheels/tires and stock 6th or 7th gen Celica wheels look to be the cheapest option.

Can you guys tell me the:

1) Width
2) Offset
3) Weight

of the 15" 5-spoke 6th gen wheel, 15" GT rim from the 7th gen and the 16" 7th gen GT-S wheels?

I read a post somewhere on here that said the 15" 5-spoke 6th gen wheel was 7 inches wide, but I wanted to verify that.

Thanks.

i don't recommend 7th gen gts rims because the rim itself was like 22 pounds (when i weighed the rim, might have been 19 like gary said).

also 16x6.5" doesn't leave much room for fat tires.

That's interesting that they went to a 7" wide 15" rim for the 6th gen. Too bad the offset isn't as low as the other Celica wheels.

Anyone know the weight of the 6th Gen 15x7 wheel?

I run the 6th gen OEM 15x7" rims on my 165 with 205/55/15s.
Gary's right, they are +45 offset, whereas stock for my 165 is +39. They rubbed the rear struts, so I had to use thin 1/8" spacers. No biggie :smokes:
PS - I weighed them before but don't recall how much, sorry.

Also, note that the 7th gen GTS rims are +39mm offset.

Thanks for the info, Rick.

Would you say that they are over or under 20 lbs. each?

And does anyone know if they would fit an ST185 without any rubbing or fitment issues due to the 45 mm offset? Especially if I put a 215 or even 225 tire on there?

I'll weigh one of them tomorrow and post up again.
What is the stock wheel size and offset for the 185?
If you know that, you can compare it against the 15x7" (205/55/15) +45mm offset to get a pretty good idea.

I'd say right about 20 lbs for rim only.
The 7th gen rim + tire = 37 lbs total.

i would have to say no to the 235/245s on the gts rims because when the tire shop was doing my gts rims they had a hell of a time even getting 215s on. also i would think 235/245s would be way to wide of a tire to run on a 6.5" wide rim assuming you are talking about the 7th gen gts rims.

Hm.... does anyone have a benchmark as to what the stock ST165 and St185 wheel/tire combo weighs? I wasn't able to weigh mine, but having that benchmark might be a good thing for those looking for lighter wheels.
