Hello- Is it me you're lookin for.

Hello, Hello it's been awhile for some of us. I've been driving around town - and I realized today that my bumper was literally freaking cracked like beyond repair from driving around in the snow I guess or something.

I'm crushed - but that is beyond the point. I have 14inch wheels and was thinking of upgrading wheel size, whats the biggest I can get driving around decently without hitting bumps and not rubbing.

I was going to think 17 inches all around I got stock suspension it would look more nice too but I also noticed people commenting that they have 18 inches - is that pushin it or what?

Also how much am I looking at in order to fix my front bumper *sigh*

I like 17s, and think they're the upper limit. You don't want to end up like this...

Thanks Biglo- I just want my car to be higher so this doesn't happen again when I buy a new bumper the whole bottom is so cracked.

Also I was listening to that song in my car today this is very awkard.

And LOL at those two spoke rims holy balls. And does weight matter like will I feel how slow my car hauls when I get new rims?

Is there anything I can do to make my bumper stronger? The dealerships skid plate that goes under the bumper or what? How much does toyota charge for a new bumper? (Front end)

Was thinkin something simple

Ok now I know what you want Kevin, first thing are you using stock spring? If not what brand? In my case I had the S tech Tein springs very low, and rocking 18 with no issue what so ever with the front bumper, but and yes there is a but you will rub a little on the fender, and you will not have problems with ur bumper. I changed the springs to TRD sportivo bcuz my body kit was only an inch from the floor, so I changed it now she is good. All in all Kev the option is yours, and Toyota recommends 18 the highest you can go on rims.

I have stock springs just was thinkin of getting new tires with new rims for the car 17 inches all round then proceed to get my bumper replaced.

Turns out those rims wont fit a yaris - still wondering if the exhausts any good for 75 bucks
