Question about rims (pics included)

As you can see below i have a 2001 Gallery Edition Toyota Camry... i was wondering if these 5-spoke 18" Italias would fit width wize, length wise, and depth wise.... I'm a newbie to wheels and tires... i specialize in electronics and sound

as far as ive read so far, i know AN 18" rim will fit on this car, im just not sure about this rim

here is the link to the info about the Italias... you need to hit the right arrow five times to get to the italias

I like to edit the rims in to see how they will look, so heres a possible before and after.... (reminding you the second is fictional)

1. If you simply use the Tire rack web site, it will tell you if the wheels fit your car or not. Took me about 2 minutes.

2. Why do you want to just install "rims" on your car? It would look so much better with the entire wheel installed along with some nice tires.

My way of shopping goes... 1. Find rims 2. Find tires that fit rims

The average smart person would make the inexpensive item dependant upon the expensive item
--- as far as I'm concerned, i don't want to buy a set of tires over $1000

My next question is... what is a good low profile set of tires (under $500) for these rims?

Oh, okay, I get it. If I'm the smartass that must make you the dumbass. It's all so clear now, especially when the "rim" question goes right over your head.

By the way, the average smart person would read the site and see that the wheel you're asking about is available in 16", 17", 18", 19", 20" and 22" diameters. That's straight of the website.

To answer your question, no. But then I wouldn't waste my money putting "rims", or 18" wheels for that matter, on a Camry. It's a fine car the way it is, why f*ck it up?

You are not being nor have you been flamed. I responded to your question with the obvious answer and then asked you a question. You didn't like it because I hurt your precious feelings so I simply restated my first reply. I still answered your question, why can't you answer mine, or say thanks for the answer?

You just don't get it, do ya. Let me try to make it REAL SIMPLE so you can understand. If the wheels you want fit your car, the Tire Rack web site would tell you. Let's try that again because it's pretty clear you're kind of slow. IF THE WHEELS YOU WANT FIT YOUR CAR, THE TIRE RACK WEB SITE WOULD TELL YOU.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe that wheel isn't made in an 18" with your bolt pattern? Maybe the offset is incorrect? Here's a thought. Why don't you pick up the phone and call their toll free number and ask them. Until you put forth at least as much effort as you expect us to, how about if you don't respond.

It amazing. You finally figured out something on your own, after being told to use the web site how many times, and now you think you're a hero.

You made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants. Somebody who drives a Camry, apparently the new ghetto car, calling a Bug a chicks car. Now you can add something else to your list of extrordinary lifetime accomplishments besides being able to "change the windshield wiper fluid". Making an ass out of yourself in public. Congratulations, you are the new Car Forums village idiot.
