Mine is the Yaris RS grade for Canada, with lowering springs...

I'm planning to either import a factory front spoiler from Australia, or the JDM Vitz RS front bumper...

Cheers

Master-

The offset is F:+42 R:+37.
It is necessary to note it for the installation.
The reception desk comes in contact with the inner liner when the steering wheel is turned.
However, contact can be avoided by warming and processing the inner liner.

Rear comes in contact with the fender by the individual difference of the vehicle.
Because only the right side came in contact, my vehicle processes the fender a little.

The widest wheel in the data that I have is 18inch 9.0J 215/40-18 offset F&R+48.

A lot of problems seem not to be functional though there is putting 19inch in Vitzliste Member.

The 18's look awesome, but they are 2 inches in diameter bigger than stock. This is like installing higher gears in the diff. which robs performance. If you wonder why she doesn't fell as peppy any more, that's why. But hey, it is hard to beat the look.

^^ you are keeping the same drive ratio if you get the correct height on tires. He is running a "40" profile tire to offset the increased wheel size

dealership told me that if you keep the same height on the wheel, then it won't void the warrenty, it only void if your wheel is larger then the stock wheel. I was going to go with 18, but we have to many pot holes in calgary, i'm gonna stick with some 17 so not to sacrifice on the tire.

Find a tire size calculator on the net, put in your stock size and an 18" size with a 40 profile and see the difference.

kenbow is running a 205 tire on a 7.5 width wheel.

think about how much that tire is stretching on that wheel and why the 40 profile is needed.

Sorry, I thought he had 215's. The stock 175/65/14 is 23 inches in diameter, the 205/40/18 is 24 inches, an inch bigger in diameter, still slows you down. Some folks are looking for the lightest wheels possible, but if the diameter is larger, buddy beside you in the Yaris with smaller wheels is going to win!

It is because the reason that I chose 18inch 205/40-18 is appearance esteem
In the case that I choose a functional thing 17inch 205/40-17 Best Match
Because Compressor of BLITZ is fixed at the later time outside diameter is not a problem
If even the offset thinks 215/35-18 are Best to 18inch
I do not exist that I felt inconvenience by making 18inch
This time, I challenge it to 19 inches

You consult the following HP in the case that the Wheel information of the 18inch following wants

19 inch wheels on a yaris would make the wheels look huge!

There is the one who is putting in 18inch & 19inch with Vitzliste Member

HP of Vitz that puts on 18 & 19inch can see has a password issued after member registration

However, it is all the Japanese

To my Vitz Compressor without being fixed

From BLITZ compressor for CVT without being selling (under development)

I am going to purchase it right away if I am launched

woah, those rims are huge! that fender must be totally shaved. i'm loving how tucked the back wheel is. so low that it's not practical for daily driving. roads and driveways are rough here in the US :)

do japanese people usually get the five door yaris? i don't see many three door's on vitz member's pages

i'm thinking of getting some F:8x7.5 +42 and R:18x8 +40 when i get my yaris

In theory that is right, but if the wheels are lighter than stock then you have less unsprung weight and you keep or better the acceleration. I'm interested to know if you'd even feel the difference.
