That would be sweet if a 16x7lot rim would work with the factory tires?
unless the guy at kens tire and wheel doesnt know what hes talking about,which i sure hope wouldnt be the case,but not only he thought they would work but the place that they were ordered from allso said thats what i want,so it in the PROS hands,if they are not correct,i move on to the next shop to c if they get it right.

Hi guys
They will work... it is stretching it though... a 175 tire kinda looses it's intended section profile once mounted on a 7" rim.
Different width section tires are obviously meant to be mounted on different width wheels to behave like mfg intended.
If it is chosen to use up these OEM-175 tires and if the finished look pleases, go ahead.
Throughout tire/wheel customization could happen later...
5"-6" is intended width
7" is a stretch
8" would be unthinkable as everyone would hopefully agree

'cause they can't go otherwise...
175 OEM Assurance tire type and size was picked by Toyota for fuel-efficiency
They accordingly supply 5" wide steel and aluminum wheels to match (per recommended guidelines)

Aftermarket wheel mfgs cater to car-buffs and cosmetics...
5"-6" wide 16" wheels must be non-existent because such narrow tires do not yield an awfully aggressive stance you'll agree; so this is why you're being offered 16X7

Winter tires are mandatory in Quebec, I did not bring home these tires and had the steel wheels fitted right away with 175 Dunlop SP Winter Sport in January... 175 are desirable on such a light car to prick thru the snow (versus "float" with a wide footprint)

Hell, this forum is getting addictive... exchanging with this community :)

175 on 7" wide rims?
Yes go ahead... although you're somewhat beyond guidelines.
Nothing frightening will happen.

Technically, the maximum rim width should be equal to the tire tread
175mm divided by 25.4 = 6.889"
7" rim exceeds 6.889"

You may notice the edges of the tire at the rim curling somewhat towards the center.
Your 175 tire will present to the eye a different section profile to what it was.

But you can do that without too much fuss.

You will not find anywhere a published OK for that tire/rim combination though since it is borderline.
This is close... people do it.

Your 7" rim will allow upgrading the tires in the future if you ever wish to.
Something impossible with the 5" Scion aluminum wheel option...
