Hi everyone. :)

So, I just started working on this car 'round April 2016...
What I've done so far is just
- Plasti-dip the crap out of the emblems
- Plasti-dip the crap out of the wheels (Hence why I'm looking for wheels :p)
- Borla exhaust
- Tein coilovers
- Window visors
- Cheap front lip (lol)
- Vinyl eyelids & a cute little tacky decal on my rear windshield


What wheels I'm looking for and NOT looking for
- NO WHITE!!!!!! :(
- Must be 17's and 5x100
- Thinking about bronze? But I'm open to other colors
- Looking for something aggressive
- Nothing with 12012984091 spokes please

* TSW Nurburgring bronze

* Sparco assetto garra

*JNC 010

* Vordoven Forme9

Welcome to TN dorykins! :welcome: I like the looks of your Corolla and I'm guessing it's a 2011 so it's pretty much just like mine (except mine is basically stock)! Since I'm a fan of 5 spoke wheels, I'd choose the JNC 010 wheels.

Hi!!! I literally just made this account to ask for ideas. @[email protected]'
Yeah, I don't like anything with too many spokes. I like those too! I'm soo picky when it comes to wheels though haha

Welcome!
Glad to see some new members working on their rides.

Out of the wheels you listed Id pick the TSW's hands down.
They are the highest quality of the bunch and probably the lightest.
If you can afford them, definitely get them.
In second place I'd go with the Sparcos. They are also a well known brand and their quality is good.
Although the other wheels are reproductions of classic wheels like the SSR proffesor SP1/Work Meisters and Work Emotions, I'd stay clear of cheap knockoffs if your planning on doing any kind of hard driving. I suppose they would be ok for normal commuting but you get what you pay for.
Plus I'm not one to fake the funk.

Tough decisions ahead, keep us posted with what you get. Also what kind of rubber you gonna run?
Good luck!

I like the stock wheels. They are a nice 5-spoke black wheel which is my favorite most cars. I suggest putting that wheel money into TRD suspension upgrades starting with a strut bar, then roll bars, and lowering springs. Upgrading just the tires alone will make a big difference.


Have fun

Yeah, lol. I liked those first. They caught my eye, then I saw the price. :crying: I am using this corolla as a commuter car haha, but sometimes I do drive pretty rough. Thanks for the input!!

I like 5-spokes too, but I'm getting a little tired of looking at these crap-plasti dipped wheels lmfao. My car is sitting on coilovers, I was going to lower them more as soon as I got wheels. Haha I haven't looked into the others because I don't drive THAT rough... I drive like a grandma sometimes lol.

Welcome! Nice S!

Im partial to ROTA GRIDS myself, i know they aren't on your list but google Corolla with ROTA GRIDs and you'll see some nice pics.

Nice build so far bro! I have those side window visors and paint-matched eyelids too! Nice front lip, where'd you get it?
Yeah! It's okay if they aren't on my list. I'm open to options :)


What about those? How do you feel about bronze lol? I freaking HATE my magnetic gray car. lol I do not know what color wheels. I got it at Home Depot lol, it's just a garage door rubber seal thingy. :p

What's wrong with white wheels? They would look great on your car. I like the Sparco wheels out of those 3. I can't stand the look of the JNC 010 wheels, that is one ugly 5 spoke wheel! :lol:

Just a personal preference ^_^ I don't want white wheels for my car and also they seem to be high maintenance lol. I live 5 spokes but everyone keeps suggesting chrome lipped wheels haha, maybe I thought some of you would like. :p

How is the ride on the tein coilovers ? Im gonna get those soon for my rolla im tired of the tein springs.
Pretty good for the most part. lol :)

Send me a link on that tein coilovers
