One set for hard winter (OZ Crono 7x16 ET30 + soft-rubber Nokian's 205/55-16), one for autumn/spring transition season (6-spoke Speedline 7x16 ET35 + hard-rubber Nokian's 205/55-16), the third set for summer (5-spoke forged Sliks 7,5x17 ET30 + Firestone SZ90 225/45-17)

The 4th set of 6-spoke OEM wheels + 225/45-16 Yokohama semi-sliks for track days

I must be totally crazy/retarted but I recently also have bought some nice 6-spoke 8x18 ET38 wheels (GTZ Corse) that I'm planing to use for "show-off" during some meets, etc. :crazy:

Very nice! :)
I didn't know they make LHD st205's :D ..... just the other day I was showing a st205 to my friend at work and he told me I would have to convert it to LHD if I wanted to register it so I can drive it (California thing) and my hopes of owning one went down the crapper.
Now I'm happy again

I like the new sound of my ST205 (not too loud)
But I forgot how is difficult to work on this car... :oops:

straight from Japan! :D
can't wait to put them on

in December I visited http://www.gt4-racing.eu / http://www.gt4.com.pl/
guys did a big service to my car - timing belt, front SSS replacement, BC Racing coloivers, rear adjustable Whiteline swaybar, engine & fuel tank under-panels / guards, etc.

with suspension done now it's a different car - and what a car! 8)

18" GTZ Corse wheels at the end landed on my wife's Subaru Forester XT...

Image


17" wheels look nice on the ST205, but the ride quality (along with BC Racing suspension even at he mildest setup) is not so great, so for the next year I'll probably switch to 16" wheels with 225/50-16 tyres - now only have to choose between those 2 sets :D

Image

Image

that's how my ST205 looks with the mudflaps - I must admit I like it (but my kids and wife make jokes about new controversial look of my Celica :pissed: :twisted: )

Image

Image


btw, this August I attended PECM-2018 (Pan European Celica Meeting) in Slovakia, it was really great to meet new people and see so many Celicas in one place

Congratulations on your new Car ! :notworthy:
I'll have to keep an eye opened for a LHD ST205 so when my Finances improve, I can pick one up ! :)

Don't worry about the wife and kids, my wife makes fun of my red mudflaps as well. The smaller rims with thicker tires will really make them pop imo.

I also can't help but notice the blue 205 with the body kit in the last picture, strangely enough there's one with the same kit and in the same colour not far from where I live. Small world!

Thanks guys!
Every single day I enjoy driving my Celi, even enjoy just look at it (another thing my wife makes jokes about, to tell the truth :lol: )
