Early pictures seem to have massive rims on the IQ. Look almost to be 17's or maybe bigger. Any details what size they are?

Yes they are big rims, in fact they are 18×8.5 ET03. The technical specs are Five:AD S6:F custom wheels with nickel finish prototyped by MetalFX and wrapped in Yokohama S drive tires. :)

Do you think the car would look better or worse with bigger tires? Think you could fit 19" inch rims on there?

So will we actually see it come stock with 18's or will they go like every other car company and end up throwing 14/15 inch wheels on the the production model?

Bigger rims will definitely be an option. Car companies do need to make money somehow. It will most likely vary by trim level.

Ya, expect the 14's to fit perfectly on the car for the base model....lets hope they at least put on rims and not steel wheels with hubcaps....*shudder*

I don't think they will go to hubcaps. Scion will be smart and put on some nice looking rims, probably at least 15 inch rims and have a higher model with larger rims - possibly the 18s we see pictured. They need to do this to gain the market edge.

I think 17s or 18s would be fine. Even if 16s came stock, that would still be okay - it's all about the look. If the wheel gap was too large with smaller rims, just lower the car... I think there are enough options out there, but before jumping to conclusions, we should wait until the final IQ specs are confirmed.
