Will 2010 Alloy 16" Rims Fit My 2004 Corolla S?

Hi All!

New to this forum. Purchased a 2004 Corolla S last week. It is in very nice shape, but the wheels, well, they need improvement. Was eyeing up some better rims and I ran across these on eBay --> http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-Alloy-Whe...ht_2154wt_1185

Will they fit? They are from a 2009-2011 Corolla. Thanks in advance!

Yes, they're also 100mm positive offset with 5/100 bolt pattern, and come shod with 205/55-16 tires...

There's a member running 10th gen wheels here on his 9th gen so they'll definitely fit.

Thanks for all of the replies and help. I'm going to go with the OEM 2010 alloys. Had new struts installed today, the old ones were trashed, boots were rotten. The stock 15" wheels keep the vehicle from handling well, the new 16's will do wonders for that. Also looking for some projector headlamps (black), matching taillights, and blackout grille. Also considering upgrading the seats to leather. Car runs remarkably well for its age and mileage.

If that is what you are looking for, you might be disappointed as the improvements would be marginal at best by switching from 15 inches to 16 inches alone. I would say it would be for aesthetic purposes more than anything else.

Since the standard Corolla models (CE/LE/S) were more geared towards comfort, the suspension, steering, tires, gears etc, are all tuned for comfort and fuel economy. So that would require a bunch loads of changes to get the car to handle and be stable especially at high speed fast maneouvering.

Remember, since the diameter of the wheel is growing, you might need lower profile tires to keep the overall circumference of the wheel/tire combo the same.

If you must get slightly better handling through swtiching wheels, I would recommend getting slightly wider 16 inch wheels as the stock 10th gen 16 inch wheels are only 6 inches wide (go for 16 x 6.5 or better yet, 16 x 7) and a good set of summer tires that are lower profile (195/55/16 would be a good size and if you get 16 x 7 inches wheels then 205/50/16 would be the best option).

You should not use the OEM lug nuts. In doing so you risk damaging the wheels and causing problems from damaged wheels to destroyed wheel bearings from wallering out the holes.

You will need these lug nuts.

The best thing you can do to improve the handling is to put in quality springs and struts.

SuperchargedMR2,

I'm looking at possibly upgrading to 16" Corolla S wheels from 2009 and up. I saw that you put '09 Corolla S wheels on your '07 CE. I was wondering if these were direct bolt-on or did you have to do anything like add spacers?

I have a 2005 Corolla S with the 15x6 alloys. They have the 5x100 bolt pattern with a 45mm offset. I noticed the wheels you have are 16x6.5 with a 39mm offset. Any problems that you've encountered going with these sized wheels?

I will be needing new tires (and the wheels are looking bad as well), so I thought this might be a good time to upgrade the wheels and if the OEM 16's are direct bolt-on, that would be great. I like your '09 10-spokes, or the 5-spokes from the '11 Corollas with the same measurments.

Hey, thanks for your help and any insight you (or anyone else) can provide!

I just put on 5 spokes from a 2013 on last week, they were a direct bolt-on after purchasing the right lug nuts, the car rides much better and looks great! Definitely took a few years off of the look

I can take a picture later today of them on my car if you're interested.

Thanks for the reply! Yeah, a picture would be great--what year is your Corolla? Did you find your wheels locally? What kind of tires did you end up going with?

I have an 05 LE Corolla. I found the wheels locally from an auto disassembly warehouse that was selling them on craigslist. They came with tires included and mounted (Goodyear Eagle, don't remember the dimensions off the top of my head though but I assume they're what Toyota originally put on the car) with about 60% thread, so it was just a matter of buying the lug nuts, taking my steelies off, bolting the new wheels on and driving down the road to sell my old tires. I definitely like the handling on 16s much more.
Here's how she looks now with the new wheels
