    18" wheels

    Just got my new 2015 IQ home, looking to find the best site with a decent selection of some 18" wheels (and spacers) if needed for the IQ.
    Anyone that really knows what they're talking about and can help me out with this, I really appreciate it....

    Not sure if this is of any help, but maybe you can use this as a starting point. I got mine with R6F wheels from Five Axis. They are 18x7.5 ET45 and have 205/40ZR18 Nitto Neo Gen tires. I believe they were a dealer option.

    No, no spacers. They’ve been discontinued though. I’m still undecided on rubbing. They definitely do not rub under normal driving. If you take hard turns- there is a lot if noise that sounds like rubbing, but in fact is the very aggressive and noisy stability control. If you turn it off and get enough balls to go for it - there is another noise. Either bump stops or the tires loosing grip. In either case, I can’t seem to find any evidence marks of rubbing. That said, I did almost burn a hole through the rear fender liners when I forgot to attach them back to the bumper!

    Also, make sure to get the trd rear sway bar if you don’t have one already - it makes IQ drive like a normal car as opposed to a boat. You would not believe the difference!

    Thanks for the info.... Can I put any 18x7.5 wheels on my stock IQ with that size Nitto and not have any rub issues....? Looking at some Enkei's right now. I'd like to keep the tire flush with the outer fender...

    That I don't know, but I don't see why not. Also, look over here: https://www.scionlife.com/forums/sci...crappy-224767/

    Try the OZ Racing configurator. They have to test the wheels in the EU I believe:

    OZ Racing - Wheel Configurator

    Looks like 18x7.0 with offset range +35 to +39 will fit....

    I can confirm that 18x7.5 ET45 with 205/40ZR18 does fit without rub. So will 215/35-18

    If 18x7.5 +45 fit then 18x7 +35 should too. They both fit flush. the 7.5 will be a bit closer to the suspension.

    Thanks man, I haven't been on the forum for awhile. I installed the Injen X- Pedal Throttle Control last week in my 2015, you can't believe the difference while in SPORT mode, It's insane..... Today I installed the Injen Cold Air Intake in it, once again, HUGE difference. Install was as easy as it gets and it looks and sounds SICK..... I would highly recommend that intake for any IQ. Can't wait to throw some Tanabe springs on it and some 18" wheels. A body kit will come later....

    I'm looking into doing the Five Axis kit. 3D Carbon is handling sales for it now. https://www.3dcarbon.com/iQ_s/187.htm

    Did you put Injen on IQ? Did it really make a difference? My understanding is that it simply removes the throttle response delay, but does nothing for an actual performance.
