5-4-09 I have been getting many PM's recently regarding wheel fitment. Can you all please just ask the questions in here? This is a very much active thread and all questions should be answered in a reasonable amount of time.

I have been seeing alot of wheel fitment threads on here recentley. So I hope this will clean it up a bit. Ask what you want about a wheels fitment and I will try and answer or actually anyone can help. Just remember 18" is not enough info. We need Diamter, Width, and Offset. With out those 3 there will be no answer.

Oh and for some reason people do not know the bolt pattern is 5x114.3

Where to get wheels:
Ebay
Craigslist
RBWheels.com (used)
Memoryfab.com (used)
Forums
etc

Common sizes and offsets:
18x8.5 +35 18x9.5 +35 are really common sizes and fit pretty good. Many examples on here
Stock MK3's are 16x7 +37
MK4 NA are 16x8 +50 16x9 +50
MK4 TT are 17x8 +50 17x9.5 +50

Will add more info when I get time.

Alright here is a list of things that fit which will be updated every now and then.

18x8.5+35 & 18x9.5+35 w/ 245/40/18 & 275/35/18 tires

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

Those are good but those are stock fitment. But if anyone has something they are stumped on others or my self can help figure it out.

My current set up is 18x8.5 and 18x9.5 with 35 offset all around. It is decently flush but if the front were like 25 I would be more happy. You can use those for a guideline. I am running -1.5 camber in the front and around -2 in the rear Tie size is 245/40/18 275/35/18

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread


18x9.5+12 front, 18x10+18 rear
235/40/18 front and rear
Work XT-7 in the front, XD-9 in the back.



I thought I had pics with the XT-7's on all around which is how it usually is, but I can't seem to find any and don't want to look anymore. But the 18x10+18 has the same outer fitment as an 18x9.5+12 so they both sit as flush.

Edit: Nevermind, found a side shot with xt-7's all around.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

Thanks, I was surprised at how well they fit. I had bought the wheels to use on my S13, but they look better on the supra. We did have to roll the fenders, but that's something you're going to have to do if you want good fitting wheels anyway.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

Is 235 the most you can fit in the rear without issues or was it the first tire you tried? Looks good for drift I suppose.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

IMHO, Jose has one of the best wheel fitment to date. the new wheels he has are awesome and the pictures posted just don't do it justice.

EDIT: i stole a couple of joe's silv pics.

235 was what I had. I've used it for drifing and for road racing. I had the car out at pocono with the 18x9+20, 18x10+18 setup on there with 225s in the front, 235s in the back. And the tires weren't what was holding the car back. But you could go a little wider in the back, a 245 should fit, a 255 would probably rub. But I also didn't pull the fenders at all.

So what are the sizes and specs? Just pictures don't do anything for the intent of this thread.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

Suspension setups and tire sizes should also be mentioned in this thread as well as any rubbing issues or fender rolling, etc. so other members have a good idea what will fit correctly on their car without running into any issues.

BorHor, What size are your tires? Reason being is I have the exact same size wheels and offsets you but im having issues with rubbing and sidewall height front vs. Rear.

Thanks

Re: Wheel fitment thread

How far in can you go without hitting the shock? Are you guys pretty close to hitting it? I know the MKIV is 9.5 +50 and that doesn't rub the shock on 275s. Does anyone have a wheel that sticks in farther than that?

Re: Wheel fitment thread

17x8 Front +25, 225/45/17
17x9 Rear +39, 255/40/17

I personally feel these wheels fit perfect. They are FLUSH in the front. With the 225 I have had them rub only once. I beleive with a slight roll I could fit 235's for sure, possibly 245's but I will do some measurements before confirming. The rear's are almost as flush and allow plenty of fender clearance to fit any size tire. I will be looking at inner clearance but see no problems running 275's. I woud also like to stress that my tires have no stretch. They are very square shouldered and the 255 BFG's tend to run wider than the same size in other brands.





EDIT: Car now has 275's in the rear and the fit is still great.

On my old rims I got to the point where my tire was rubbing my coilover. I was probably like -3 camber though. :biglaugh:

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

To be honest... looks like some people get wide wheels that don't fit, then skimp on tire size (what actually matters) to make them work.

Wiisass - I'm sure you know much more about how suspension systems behave then I do, but it looks like those tires are a little small for the wheels...

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

Some people love stretched tires some hate. It is just a new style that has been around for a long time. As long as you don't go too skinny the tire will be fine. My track set will be stretched because I am going to be drift on them anyways and skinny rims are lame.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

I'm less worried about the tire's well being, more curious as to why waste money on wide wheels when you're putting the bare minimum tire size on them; losing all functionality of having wide wheels to begin with. Either way, you answered it, its simply an idiotic styling thing.

I don't think you should go as far as saying it is idiotic. No hating please.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

Some extreme stretches are stupid, there's no point and people do it just to look cool. I do like a little bit of a stretch, like the 235 on a 9.5, for drifting. It increases the cornering stiffness of the tires by essentially preloading the sidewall in the lateral direction. So compared to something like a 275 on a 9.5 where the sidewall is sloppy and quick direction changes don't give good steering feel.

For road racing, I do like a little more tire under the car that's why I have another set of wheels and tires. The setup I posted here was just for drifting and driving to the track. Although I did track the car with a 225/235 setup on 9/10 wheels at pocono. And the brakes were the biggest limiting factor, so I couldn't carry as much speed through turns as I would've like because of the slightly unsettling lack of brakes. But despite that, I did not feel that the tires were holding me back.

But I do have another setup that I haven't fit to the car. It's 275/315 Hoosiers on 10.5/11.5 BBS Race wheels. I still don't know how it's going to fit on the car, but that's what the winter is for.

But I do have when people try and put too much tire on a wheel. It works for straight line, but it doesn't work too well for cornering.

Re: Official Wheel fitment thread

+1 i am also looking a to 18" (again) but 9.5 or 10 out back. But i just droped $1300 today on engine internals, and $300 last week on interior parts. so supra fund is getting low. Rims maybe after the snow comes and leaves :) At least i know the offset now and can find the wheels i like.
