FYI, Your tires are on backwards, If you switch the left side with the right, that should correct it (from what I can see in the photos, anyway).

Yes, it won't matter if there's no rain (like here in L.A.), but the idea of these directional tires(there should be arrows on each tire, that should point forward), is to channel water away from the center of each tire to eliminate or reduce Hydroplaning.

They are installed correctly. If you look at the tire pic more closely you can see the forward rotation arrow is at the 6 or 7 o'clock position. Thanks for looking out for me just in case and for any other members that might not know about directional tires.

Looking at wheels and I really love the style that the HRE FF01's have, like the 2015 SEMA corolla. Reasonably priced wheels that look similar are the TSW nurburgring, avant garde m310 and the VMR 710's. Dont really like how boxy the TSW's are and haven't heard any good about the VMR so i'm really thinking the AG's are what I will do, they are 18x8 and I want to know if I will run into issues with rubbing or whatnot, I have the eibach lowering springs which are like an inch and half I think. Offset of these wheels are 30. Also what size tire? 215/34 or 225/40? Not really sure what would be best.

Nice! how do you like the rims? Also what size tires are you running and what lowering springs do you have?

I have a '16 L with 15" steel wheels. I'm interested in the 15 inch alloys that came on the 9th gen Corolla S models....will it be a direct fit? No offset problems?

Hello Guys,

I am looking to purchase a 17" rims for my Corolla Se 2017. I am currently looking for a Tenzo type M or Rota slipstream rims.
I am living in New Brunswick, Canada.
Can someone direct me in the right path please and thank you.

OK, OE wheel experts flex your knowledge.

OK, I have a 2015 Corolla S. Stock wheels are the 17 x (7?)

For winter I have a set of older 2010-12, cast aluminum Corolla wheels in 16 x (6 or 7?)

My winter tire set up is a little taller and narrower than the OE, but works well.

I traded the Corolla for an 86 last night, will my snow set up fit on the 86?

I think the bolt pattern is exactly the same, but is the offset weird going from FWD to RWD?

Thanks,

Scott

Corolla wheels will NOT fit on the 86......confirmed.

I should have known. One is a Toyota, one is a Subaru. Dang.

More like "one is a FWD economy sedan and the other is a RWD pure performance coupe". Who made them is irrelevant. They're two completely different vehicle platforms designed for two completely different purposes.

17X7 45 215 is stock for the S+. so should fit, if you don't lower you could go with 8" wide, no problem (maybe 8") I added 20mm spacers all around to my stock set up (with a 2" megan lowering springs) and it works great!

Questions about the fit

So I'm looking at some Rota Grids (18x9.5/e38/73) for my 2017 SE and I was wondering if you got any rub with the SLC1s...I'm probably not going to lower my car until I have enough saved for bags, so would I be able to run non-stretch tires on this size (stock ride height)? And with 9.5s did you still have full range of motion for steering, or was there a limit with hitting the struts/shocks?

Thanks.

I'm not too sure if the OEM suspension is too soft to run the Rotas with regular tires but you will definitely need rolled/pulled fenders and stretched tires if you want the car to sit how I had it when aired out. You might as well roll your fenders now to prep if you're really set on buying air suspension.

I had a slight stretch with 225/40 tires previously on the SLC1s without any fenders rolled and the sidewalls got shredded like pulling apart string cheese and I was on coilovers at a pretty high ride height. It might help that the offset of the Rotas are a bit higher but I would recommend rolling your fenders. As for full steering range, I had no problems. I have wider wheels now (17x10) and I'm sure we can easily run 11 inch wide wheels with the right offset.

If you're planning to bag your car, I recommend that you don't drive it at a low height as you'll risk buckling your fenders. I drove so low that I rubbed through the front bumper where it meets the fender (it rubbed through the clips causing the front bumper to pop out) as well as my fender liners. That was the one of the reasons why I went from bags back to coils with stiffer springs as the bags were too soft for a low drive height and wheel fitment like that and I didn't want to run high air pressures to make the ride stiffer and risk popping a bag. For future reference, I drove with 30 PSI in the front and 70 PSI at the rear. The reason for the difference in PSI is because of the different bags used for the front shocks and rear shocks. The fronts use double bellow bags and the rears use a sleeve bag and typically sleeves will run on double the pressure of the double bellows.

Hopefully this helps.
