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.

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.
I've been looking at wheels and I was worried that a 17x8 +35mm offset would poke too much. Looking at my 2017 iM if the front wheels extended about 12mm it would make it flush with the front fender. The rear wheels look like they have about 25mm before sitting flush.

Can anyone verify this and post some pics of the alignment with the fenders front and rear?

Do you have any pics of how much those poke out and fit in the wheel well.

Where has everyone gone? It seems like nobody is on to help talk about our Corolla iM anymore. I've finally figured out a wheel to get but I was wondering what everyone thought about offset. I'm getting a 17x8 wheel but should I get +45mm offset or +35mm offset?

The 45mm offset will protrude 18mm more than the stock alloy wheels. The 35mm offset will protrude an additional 28mm. I'm worried that the 35mm offset will stick out past the fender.

What are some thoughts?

Im here.. I check on this forum frequently.. Im still new so try to make a name lol

But our OEM stockies are a +50 offset which is why we look like railcars with the wheel sunken in

+35 has always been a perfect match for my tastes because it brings the wheel/tyre perfectly in line with the fenders (IMHO)

That also plays a role in your tyre size(width) and wheel size (width)

Fitment industries has some good ideas for our cars but non show what im personally going for.

Hopefully I helped!

That was my first thought too. I have 17x8 +35mm offset wheels on my 2009 Corolla S Turbo but the OEM 17" wheels are 17x7 +39mm offset compared with the 17x7 +50mm offset on the iM. That's why I was hoping to see pics of similar offsets to see what they look like. I can get the wheels in either a 45mm or 35mm offset.

I like the way my 2009 Corolla S Turbo sits as the wheels fill the wheel wells but don't protrude past the edge.
