    Standard stock wheels were only 14" - remember, it was 1986! I run the 2000K Celica stock 16" alloys with no problems. Some of the others will chime in with their big wheel recommendations soon...

    standard is 13 or 14.

    13 was the stock steely size as well as the lower trim GT and ST models.
    14 was the normal GT-S size.

    putting on 16s or at most 17s is reasonable.

    putting on 20's is just absolutely excessive.

    here's a chart for st162's
    13-14 - stock
    15 - race car appropriate (autocross/track day)
    16 - good balance of daily driver and canyon carving sizing for tires
    17 - rubber band tires but it still works
    18 - pointless but i guess if that's your style
    19+ - pointless and you bought the wrong car to use this size of wheels.

    Good point; I've only had the GT-S' so I forgot about the tiny 13" ones. Seems crazy nowadays, lol
