Good thing you spotted their error. Did you go to America's tire or Discount tires? Wonder who wasn't paying attention. The guy at the desk or the installer.

No telling. I feel like it was a rush slap whatever was in stock kinda deal. I'm having some cheap ecopias put on it in the right size just to get me by until my new setup comes in. I'm still struggling a bit with if I really want those wheels lol.

No. Sorry. 15 on both. But 65 fronts and 60 rears which is quite the difference in my opinion. It rides much better now too.

Yeah, offset on my car is +39. What if I put spacers? Also, what about width of the tire if I put the stock 195/65R 15s?

I don't think you understand how offset is measured. When the spec sheet say's "Offset +15" It means that if you draw a center line down the middle of the wheel, the mounting surface is 15mm offset away from the center line, towards the wheel face. When it say's "Offset -15", the mounting surface is 15mm offset away from the center line, away from the wheel face. Which means this wheel will stick out of your fenders and will rub. If you add spacers, it will just stick further out. IMO the optimal offset for this car is +32 to +35, on 7 inch width wheels.

For tire size, you should go 205/60 or 65/15. If you choose 205/65, you will be going 61mph when your speedo reads 60. It'll also feel more sluggish when accelerating. 205/60 will have you going 59mph when your speedo reads 60. At this point, it becomes a choice of tire availability and affordability, but you should definitely up your tread width to 205 to accommodate the 7 inch wheel width.

If you're not doing any fender mods or camber adjustments, I think you should find a different wheel. I went to their site, and that's the only offset they have on this wheel. I don't know for sure, but I have a feeling it'll give you rub problems.

Thank you for taking the time to explain this. I’m new to wheels as it hasn’t been my priority. I normally just leave it stock. Yeah, I’ll look for something else and do more research.

I'm running 195/60R15 tires on my 2006 Scion xB with 15x7 wheels and it looks good. The tires fit nicely on the wheels without stretching. I could have also run 205/55R15 tires but I stayed with the 195/60R15 as I had more tire choices.

That looks good actually. That's also an option.

I have 14 Corolla L with 15" hubcap wheels.
I would like to put the 14-16 Corolla S wheels that are 17"

Will I have any issues putting them on my car?
I think I may need to buy different lug nuts...

If anyone has done it please let me know.

Also, looking will need tires as well the OEM tires that come on the S wheels are 215/45/17.

Any feedbacks/advises would be appreciated.

Thank you.

They will fit just fine. In fact they would fit any 9th Gen, 10th Gen or 11th Gen Corolla. You will need to use the proper short shank lug nut with washer though for the 17" S wheels.

As far as tires use the proper diameter 225/45R17 or 205/50R17 tire.

Here are the tire sizes that Toyota uses on the Corolla and the 215/45R17 is too small. The Corolla iM uses the proper 225/45R17, go figure.

195/65R15 25.0" diameter
205/55R16 24.9"
215/45R17 24.6" - OEM is too small
205/50R17 25.1"
225/45R17 25.0"
245/40R17 25.0"
225/40R18 25.1"

Just ordered this tires a bit pricey but I thought it was worth it.
Like you said 225/45R/17

Great tires, you'll love them. I'll bet that Discount Tire would have beat that price though. Why didn't you get them from there? Plus you have all of the free service for flats and warranty issues. Plus if you had bought them during one of their bigger sales you could have got back $160 in rebates too!

^This.
The main reason I stay with Discount/America's Tire is their warranty, repair and maintenance. I still haven't seen anyone else either replicate or top their prices and service. Although sometimes, their availability on some tire selections tend to run out. The Simi Valley branch has a pretty quick restock and stock order of about a day or two. It's a bit slower in the Granada Hills area.

Why? Those are terrible looking. :barf:


Lol. Yeah it doesn’t look much but they remind me of turbo wheels in the 80’s. They’re not for everyone.

I like the rally look even though this Method MR502 rim wouldn’t have that “turbo” effect to draw air in to cool the brakes. Besides, I’ve got drum brakes in the rear so I wouldn’t really want open rims to display them.

I could suggest OZ Racing Leggendas, but they're only 4-lugs as advertised on their main site. And their Superturismo WRC has very limited availability around Europe only. Maybe you can have someone import it for you, but that might be cutting out of your price range. If you don't mind mesh style wheels, the Drag DR34 is available in 15x7 +40. Since it's mesh, it'll hide that drum brake in the back. Although if you wanted a more rally inspired look, I don't think you have much option than to be my Sparco-bro with the Sparco Terra. Might have to go up to 16x7 +35 too.
