18's would be the biggest I personally would put on a Solara. But even then you should drop it. Otherwise you'll be riding pretty high. And the wheel well gap will be huge.

But I think some 18's with a 1.2" drop would look good.

cool, i just thought you needed to roll them since a good friend of mine here has 20"s om his 1st gen solara and had to roll his fenders...the big rims really are quite a pain...he got too close to a curb pulling into a parking spot & bent one of them :eek:
more trouble than they are worth in that size imho..i want to drive without worrying my rims all the time.

interesting offset of +34mm. i know stock offset is +38mm and the 14" BBS rims i currently have on my car are +42mm. it makes a nice difference having a bigger offset feels like a nicer contact with the road to me. plus doesn't "hide" out in the wheelwells as bad as the old steelies :)

the Volks are quite choice, once i get my 17" OZ's powdercoated i will be in that club hehe ;)

Question about rims .... what is the ratio of the L/100km with biggest rims?? More economy or more expensive

Thank you!
