So I guess it's safe to say the Scion iQ on 18 inch wheels is doable, just a matter of getting the correct tire profile to clear the fenders??The tire size profile will decrease as you change to a larger wheel assy
A forged weighs much less than cast, so if stock is steel 15 and you install forged alloy your saving weight
My dymag's are 19 x 12 17lbs
Forged magnesium center witha carbon fiber barrell ( rim)
the bolts are Ti that hold them together, the lug bolts are also to
Wheel cost 3200.00 each, set of 20 ti lug bolts 1200.00
I have a vw rabbit also with 15 forged ,195-50-15
stock was 175-70-13
Hope this help's
I agree. I think 18's would work just fine. I think the ride would suffer as you would have to go to a 40 profile.Stock wheels on the IQ are 16" in the USA, 18" or 19" should work.
I don't understand why you want change for 5x112 like VW? you can find 4x100 18X7 for 215/40 easely.... I was looking at adapters today to take it from a 4 x 100 to a 5 x 112. That will allow an 18 x 7 wheel with 215/40's as long as the offset is at least 50.
The selection of wheels with 4x100 is very limited. I searched for wheels 5x100 and 5x112. There was a much better selection in the 5x112. If Scion gets me the factory alloys, it will become a non-issue. I just don't think they are going to help me.I don't understand why you want change for 5x112 like VW? you can find 4x100 18X7 for 215/40 easely...
gr8tdane,I just put 18" on my 2012 IQ, I bought 18" 4X100 +42 offset on ebay and put 205/40 18 tires on. Perfect, looks awesome and no rubbing at all
