Default Will these fit stock 93

Novice question I know. I've read through the wheel thread as well. I think I'm good but wanted to double check. Thanks

Good to see the colorful opinions aren't just on the Tundra or 4runner forums. Thanks for the input.

Why? The factory stock wheels look way better. I really don't understand the wheel goofyness???

I just want to update it a bit. As I don't want to turn it into a clown car, some modern notes aren't a necessarily a bad thing in my opinion. Everyone has their own idea of what they like. I also don't foresee this car all the sudden being worth a ton of money as a collectible. At least not on my lifetime. So I am going to use it as a weekend driver with my family and lightly customize and update it. I want to enjoy it for what it is; a beautiful, expertly crafted Toyota quality vehicle that was a frugal way for me to have a fun toy. I'm not trying to offend the Lexus gods by any means.

To answer your question, yes. They will physically bolt up to your vehicle.

it's your car, do what you want.
yes they will fit, be sure to use the appropriate lug nuts. stock lugs are not meant to be used with aftermarket wheels. M12x1.5 tapered lug nuts is typically what you will need. stock lugs are mag seat type.

I appreciate the information sir, you were absolutely correct. Had to get some new spline style acorn nuts. And no matter if people have a negative opinion, I'm very happy with the outcome. Not to flashy and just enough of an update.

I can't say I agree it's an update to the car, though I can't really think of any wheels that would really "update" a UCF10/11, so I suppose any aftermarket wheel would serve this purpose as well as another, and it's not my car. I feel it could use some more sidewall on the next set of tires, they look a little small. But it at least looks better on the car than in the pictures of just the rim. Did you keep the stock wheels? Still loving that dark blue color though!

I did keep the stock wheels. And I guess "update" is subjective. Either way I am happy with them.

Not my style of wheels for this car but an inch or two drop would help if you wanna go this route.

Yeah, that's all that matters anyway. People don't (or at least shouldn't) modify their cars to make other people happy.

Not interested in lowering. I like the ride just the way it is. I like the wheels. I like the low profile tires. I did not care for the stock wheels. I merely wanted to know if they were a proper fit. I am quite intrigued by the controversy this decision has caused. It's all fun and I invite the input for sure. Just interesting. And again I'm not trying to offend the Lexus Gods by any means.

hehe yeah wheel choice is subjective around here and most guys tend to be on the stock side of things. glad you were able to get the wheels situated properly.
