Please post any wheel questions in here. We're getting 2 wheel questions a day, often asking the same information...


Can I fit (insert tire size here) on the (insert wheel size here)?
I don’t know. Go look for yourself. Tirerack.com lists tire specs for each model of tire. Search for the tire size you think you want and see what tires come back from the search. Then click on “specs”. You’ll see a chart listing all available tire sizes. For each size, a rim width range is provided. For example, Dunlop SP 9000’s specs are here: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Dunlop&model=SP+Sport+9000 A 225/50/16 tire can fit on as narrow as a 16X6 wheel, or as wide as a 16X8 wheel. A 275/40/17 tire can fit on a 17X8.5 wheel up to a 17X11…
But each tire is different, and they all have different specs. Here is a BFG drag radial spec sheet: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Dunlop&model=SP+Sport+9000 A 255/50/16 can fit on the stock sawblade (16X7). But if you look at a 275/40/17, the rim width range is 9-11”, not 8.5-11” like the Dunlop SP 9000

What is the stock bolt pattern?
5X114 (4.5”)

What is a wheel offset?
http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/tech/offset.htm has some basic information on wheel offsets. The stock sawblade offset is positive 35. MKIV wheels have a positive offset of 50. If you want to run a 10” wide wheel you should at least have a 45 offset.
Also check out Steve Jarvis' wheel fitment page (designed for MKIV):

How much do (insert wheel here) weigh?
http://www.fd3s.net/Reference/wheels.html Has a chart with Aftermarket wheel weights listed by size…

I think you will be fine... with my 18's w/275's on H&R springs I rub the inner fender liner on front fenders just a bit.. but that is all

19x10 with 285's on a MKIII !

My bro and i were messing around yesterday, we put some Racing Harts on his car with no rubbing. He's running with Tokico springs i believe. Here are the sizes:

Fronts 18x9 (48+?) 265/35/18
Rears 19x10 (50+) 285/30/19


The rears were pretty maxed out, anything with a smaller offset than +45 will probably not work unless you cut the fender. The fronts slighty touch the fenderlining when the wheel is at full lock, but no rubbing is audible on a U-turn. I have some pics if somebody wants to host them.

Yes as far as I know all toyota/lexus 5 lug wheels use the same bolt pattern, and is also shared with ford, mazda, and Nissan 5 lug wheels.
