I haven't seen anything on hub diameter posted. What is the minimum hub diameter required. I assume larger hub diameters aren't a problem

2 rims need replacing. I found a reasonably priced set of rims 17x8 with a ET35.

I'm lowered a bit from stock but not much.

Will I rub with the ET35"s?
I'm going to guess it won't be an issue, but the easiest way to know is to measure your car. Since both wheels are 8", 42 - 35 = 7mm, so measure your car and see how much space there is between your wheel and fender. If the gap is larger than 7mm, then you're good.

I plan on getting 10" wide wheels so the tire will poke out more then the rim. Also open to going wider if I find the right rim. This is only for rear tire.

purpose -I will only be drag racing this car
Ride hight- have Megan coilovers so can adjust
rear fenders- are pulled (whoever did it should be taken out back and Beaten with whatever he did it with.)
tire size- 315/30r18 drag radials
Rim-
18x10 offset???
18x10.5 offset???
18x11 offset???

I hope I have thought of everything. Thanks in advance!! This is the first thing I have not found easily on the site!!
Check out page 386. I was discussing this exact same question with someone else.

60.1 is the center bore diameter for lexus. You'll want it the same size or larger. Toyota/Lexus is the smallest hub diameter I've encountered, so most wheels will be larger. You can order hub rings to fill in the gap if it bothers you.

It'll require fender mods. Roll in the front and roll or shave in the rear. Fronts you'll be ok with a 245 or 255. You'll need 265 in the rear if you're really low or a 275 if you have some wheel gap.

You're going to have to roll them regardless if you want those sizes. Those tire sizes are to clear the fender after modification.

If you want no mods at all, then you're looking at something like a 9 +35 or higher in the rear. The fronts I'm not too sure what size fits without any mods.

From what info I can find these are American Racing "Rebel" wheels 17x9 +24mm. And 245/45r17 on all 4 corners. Bought it like this so I need to dig a little deeper.


Pretty flippin flush. Glad to have the side skirt and rear aprons. Lines out jist right in my opinion

Guys I need your help. Just got my 98 SC300 last week. I now have a chance to purchase the wheels I've been wanting for the longest. Racinghart Type C . Spec are 18x8.5 with 28 offset and 18x9.5 with 40 offset. I'm still on stock suspension but will lower the car an inch or 2 soon. Will these wheels work without any fender mods? Much appreciated

At stock height you'll have no issues.

Once lowered, The rears will be fine. I'm not really sure about the fronts since I don't remember the clearance of oem fenders. I think you'll be fine or very close to them. Worse case scenario you'll have to shave some of the fender lip off. You won't need a complete roll.
