Hi guys. I've been searching on this forum to see if the OEM wheels from a Lexus GS300 would fit on a Gen 4, 1998 Camry 4cyl. All I see are threads about IS300 wheels. The specs of the wheels are 16x7.5 with a +50 offset. Will these fit the car? I was doing tire calculations to see what tire size would bring the overall diameter of the wheel tire combo back to similar specs as the OEM wheel tire combo and it seems like I would have to use 215/55/16 series tire. Please enlightment me with your knowledge. Thank you.

I looked into getting the same wheels.. first of all, no way is it 215/15/16.. 15 would be wayyy low profile, and those are maybe 45 or 50 by the looks of it. at 215 you might get some strut rubbing so you may need spacers, but yeah those wheels will definitely fit with little to no modification

Sorry. Bad typo on my part. I meant 215/55/16.

The +50 offset worries me. Any way you can do a test fit? You may have to run spacers, but they should fit fairly well.

Thanks guys. I think I'll stay away from these wheels then. They were a good price which is why I asked.

Hey, if they're being run on a wagon and they're a good price... then i'd get them. Spacers are basically a fact of life with certain wheels. And you'd prolly need different lugs anyways.

Don't let the spacers and lugs scare you away! At a good shop it will be no more then $50 extra to make them work. I think I had to add like $30. They are very nice wheels though. If the picture you posted is the set for sale, they look really clean.
I bought mine for $200 with tires that were lightly worn. After replacing the center caps with Toyota ones, the wheels look like they belong on the wagon (to me at least....):rolleyes:

Its $250 for the set. Now that I think about it, I don't think they'd match the car. Its all good. Thanks for the input though.
