The Wheel & Tire Fitment Thread

Good News: I took a closer look at one of the display vehicles and the rear fenders are prerolled (or precut) meaning there's nothing sticking out (or in) for maximum clearance. Well done Scion!

Post your wheel and tire fitments here so people know what will fit and what will not. Please include your wheel diameter, width, offset, tire size and what level of drop if any.

Hey

Any thoughts on what people are thinking of putting on their cars? Will probably be picking up my car in a month or so. Looking at 18 inch enkei tsp6 to look similar to the concept car. Will probably stay at stock ride height and use a fairly conservative offset and width.

I'm really hoping people don't go full retard and stretch tires, negative 15 degrees of camber out some 18x10 wheels on these.

I am 100% against the "stance" movement.

Function > Form

That being said I would really like to see what a set of Silver 17x9 +35 Enkei RPF1's with some 245/40/17's wrapped on them look like. I'm not sure what the weight on the OEM wheels are, but it would be nice to free up some unsprung weight.

A lot of websites are reporting conflicting information with regards to the tire specs and possible changes in rim size. Some report only being able to do the same, some report downsizing possible, some report only going 18 being possible. Some report the factory specs incorrectly based on what I've been seeing here (reports 17x7.5 rather than 7, for instance).

I'm guessing 16x7 is possible but I'm not even sure (would like Winter tires that are smaller, y'know).

Hub bore appears to be at 60.1?

I'll go consult the dealer this afternoon. Here's to hoping all the websites get their **** in order within the next few months.

Why would someone want to stretch their tires? It looks hideous!

Same here, i'm more into a race inspired look, much like the wheel setup here:

Not the greatest example but enough to give you an idea.

Holy poke. That offset is wayyyyyy too low. Definitely appreciate you posting the pictures though for a visual though. I am looking at a set of 17x8 40mm offset wheels.

I hope cops don't bother you for that setup since I have seen some guys into the stance seen getting in trouble for wheels that stick out like that, even ones that didn't have crazy negative camber

They do poke out a bit I guess it's the angle that makes it seem worse than it really is. Also the car being so high doesn't help. These are my cars wheels tho I was just bored and wanted to get a idea on what could fit. 17x9 worth about a 30-35 mm offset would be a better fit tho 20 mm is too low for these cars.
