It's not so much the brand of tire as the type of tire. I'm sure Hankook makes some pretty soft compound tires that will work great on your Celica. What you need to remember is that the softer compound tires are not going to last as long as harder compound tires. Take a look at www.tirerack.com You will learn a ton about tires and will be armed with more knowledge when you go to your local tire store. 30 minutes of reading the info on their website will be worth your time.

Copy and paste this entire link from Tire Rack.com for tire types/prices for your car...prices range from $53 to above $94 per tire...I would strongly recommend NOT going with the really low $50 tires (You get what your pay for....tires are a VERY important investment): http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSearchResults.jsp? tireIndex=0&autoMake=Toyota&autoYear=2005&autoModel=Celica +GT&autoModClar=&width=195/&ratio=60&diameter=15&sortCode =38000&skipOver=true&minSpeedRating=S&minLoadRating=S&t ab=All

Also, are you REALLY that surprised that a place called America Tire Sales would steer you AWAY from a tire made by an Asian company? Hell...they probably only stock Goodyear and BF Goodrich...LMAO!
