Just scored a set of 2016 Corolla wheels!

Post by jayoldschool » Thu May 26, 2016 3:20 pm

Friends just wrote off a 2016 Corolla. They still had their winter wheels on it, so they kept the stock wheels and tires. Tires went to someone else, I got the wheels. Exact specs for the Vibe, and I think they will look good on my silver/grey 2004. Mint shape. The wheels are two tone silver/graphite. I'll mount them up tomorrow and post a pic. I'll weigh them, too, they seem really light. Should be a nice pairing with my Eco TrueContacts. Got them for free, along with a full set of factory nuts and locks! Believe the Vibe center cap will snap right in, center bore is exact same.

Here's the wheel:

Those are beautiful! I think chrome-ish multi-spoke wheels look best on a Silver Gen1. I'm jealous!

Here they are. Nicer than the ones I posted, they are actually dark charcoal with machined face and lip. Center caps wouldn't clip in, so they are glued with Ultra Black. Had to clean up and paint the drums... can't have rusty showing through the new wheels!

Those are nice looking. You sure they'll fit? 2010 Corolla wheels didn't fit my 2009 Vibe.

lol, yes, they fit, they're on the car. Yours didn't fit because the Gen 2 Vibes got a different bolt pattern. For some reason (lucky for me), Toyota kept the 1st Gen 5x100 pattern on some of their other cars.

Bolt pattern on my Vibe was 5x100; it was the center bore that was different. Good deal!

Hmm, the center bore is the same 54.1mm for all the Vibes (and my new Corolla wheels). The 2.4 engine gen 2s had 5x114 bolt pattern, but the 1.8s stuck with the 5x100. 2010 Corolla wheels should have fit fine, too. Same bolt pattern, same center bore (54.1mm).

The center bore on mine was 57.1. Just a hair too big to fit the Corolla wheels.

Although the design isn't really my style (I prefer 5-spoke), they definitely do look very nice on your Vibe ;)!
