  1. Seems like its a mixed bag But i was recommended these tyres saying they are meant to be better all round than the T1-R :( And they cost me more lol To be fair to them there starting to be abit better will have to keep you updated on them.
  2. Thanks mate :) Hope so, went for a longish drive tonight and they seem abit better but there definately improving, but yea my others were pretty much slicks i couldnt find the limit lol
  3. Hi guys right im in a predicament i need to top my oil up as its on the minimum mark at the moment and im driving to london on thursday night. Only problem is i dont have a clue whats in it except it has full toyota service history so must be what toyota use. went halfords tonight and they didnt know anything and then i was looking and i thought i wanted semi synthetic in 5w 30 but the only one that was part synthetic was halfords own and it said for both petrol and diesel engines leading me to believe its abit poor quality :S So from what ive said what would you recommend i put in? Thanks :)
  4. Well i reckon i have done around 50 miles so far took them for a long drive first of all when got them but wasnt pushing them then yesterday i tried wheelspinning and the traction off the line is really good its just when you come to a corner you can hear the front end sliding and it doesnt feel safe or grippy atall. Ive had the t1-s on my old car and they handled great from day one so im really worried ive messed up buying these tyres as although my last tyres were perished around the edges and had 1 mil of tread left they threw me round corners and you could feel the g-force. My tyres are at 30 all round as thats what toyota recommend just done it now they were only on between 30 - 33 before i changed them.
  5. Yea mines weird under acceleration sounds like a wasp as my friend put it lol Really quiet until you floor it and before you hit power band its sort of a metallic tappity noise is that what you mean? Im thinking of getting an exhaust to overpower it ;)
  6. Hi Guys on saturday i bought myself some new alloys and tyres, the tyres being Toyo Proxes 4 as these are meant to be good well all i can say is my worn out crappy old tyres put these to shame!!! I cant understand whats going on? My other tyres were on the standard 16 inch alloys (GEN 7 Celica) and were all different makes and i had only heard of one of the brands that was yokohama. Others were really low budget and perished. But what i cant understand is the new tyres when i go into the corner the steering is so much less responsive, the sharp turn in i enjoyed before has been replaced with what seems like understeer even at lowish speeds so what has happened how have i lost my great handling Celica? Im turning the wheel loads more than i used to feels like im pushing the tyres round rather than them steering me round. And i opted for 17's as i thought by going up one inch it wouldnt affect handling lol and they were fitted at a professional alloy wheel suppliers so it wasnt a backstreet garage etc. What pressures would you recommend for 215 - 40 - R17? Thanks for reading.

  10. Thanks for the info :) I was ideally looking for 17's as my budget isnt that great its just i need new tyres and thought while im at it get some alloys:) So im just bargain shopping at the moment, Can you PM me a price please? and also a picture if they are on celica at the moment? Thanks :)
  11. As they are both 5x100 just wondered as i want some alloys pretty urgently and have seen some nice ones that say for subaru impreza yet ive noticed some adverts say will fit both impreza and celica and others just celica. So im not sure and hope someone can help. Thanks :)
  12. Its weird this ive never checked with any car what i get to a tank :S
  13. Someone has stolent the aerial off my celica:( Just wondered if anyone had one spare they would sell? Otherwise how much am i looking at? Dont want one of those chrome tacky looking ones just a standard one. Thanks :)
