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.

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

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

IMG_0582.JPG


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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

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:

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...
