Thanks for your input. I'm still experimenting.

Here is the XSP Corolla package.

I feel a lot of the blacked out bits could go on this too, but the difference between your take and this are for one: the lines on the sedan are a lot sharper than our more organic hatch, making it a bit easier to complement the body's lines on the sedan. Secondly, your silver doesn't promote the contrast between the black as much as the white on that car does. Finally, you've gone for matte over piano black.

New to the iM world. Just purchased a 2017, and unfortunately not loving the the 17 inch wheels and tires on our crappy Michigan roads. Will going to 16 inch give me a noticeably softer rider?

Okay guys, so I've been reading on this thread for some time now trying to get an idea of what I wanted to do. Here's a summary of what I just ordered, tires got here today, I'm just waiting on the wheels and install, then I'll post pics.

Car-
2016 Scion iM, Electric Storm Blue, 5-20% tint on all windows with windshield strip, Thule custom rack with Corolla fitment

Rims-
Te37 type reps by Miro 398 matte black
5x114.3 18x8.5 rim with a 35mm offset Gorilla locking lugs, matte black

Tires-
BFGoodrich G-Force Comp2 a/s
235/40zr18

Hands down the best rated tire for high performance and all season tread.


I'll be sure to post pictures the second I get it done, I'm taking the car to the dealership so they can swap pressure sensors for the wheels and warranty the Toyota care roadside assistance! I'll see you guys in a week!

Here's the installed rims and tires, I love the way they came out! Going to get my fenders rolled out a little bit tomorrow and I'll post again.
what size are those tires? for some reason the thread design or the aspect of the tires make them look like some sort of rally or dirt tires!

Anyone here switched to a 16" wheel with 225/50 tires instead of the factory 17" with 225/45?

I was wondering how the 16" wheels looked on the iM, with a tire that was probably a bit more comfortable to drive on. Something either too small or too big looking (to my eye) really annoys me to look at though - the 18" wheels on the new Toyota C-HR is a good example of too big and cartoonish, and the 15" wheels on the Yaris LE is a good example of too small or barely adequate looking. I was thinking that 16" of the right wheel design might look good on the iM also, since it looks so good on the Yaris SE, and that car is taller than the iM, though not as lengthy obviously.

New to the forum, after 10 days of ownership spent $2000 on upgrades. So heres the fitment upgrades.

Wheels: 18x8 5x114.3/5x100 +38 (Brand not given I don't want others with same rims lol)

Tires: 225/40ZR18 Radar Dimax AS-8 92W XL m+s treadwear 600, traction a, temperature a.

Springs: Manzo (made by Megan) lowering springs for a Tc2. Supposed to be 1.4 inches front and back for a tc2. Ended up lowering my IM 5mm (0.2in) front and 40mm (1.57in) rear.

Glad you like them, they look huge to me and too big for my taste. I personally love the OEM wheels I'm not too concerned at looking at new wheels. I might upgrade the tires though as I would like some extra grip. I've never even heard of the tires you bought. I have some Michelin Pilot Super Sport A/S 3 tires on my Corolla and they are amazing and are top rated by many reports and comparisons.
