Anyone know 1st Gen GT wheel specs?

Post by jcharles00 » Wed Jan 06, 2021 10:59 am

My aluminum wheels are getting pretty trashed and I'm thinking about putting on some steel wheels. I found a great thread here with all the details for second gen wheels, but not full details on 1st gen GT wheels.

It looks like they are 16x6.5, but I can't find anything about offset. I see lots of people saying camry wheels worked for their swap, but not sure what years and trim levels would fit my '03 vibe GT.

Can anyone give me the details?

Thanks for that!

So from that post, it looks like all 1st gens are 1.8l, and all 1.8 wheels are the same specs.. so all first gen wheels specs are the same. (at least as far as pattern, bore and offset)

2003-2008 Base 1.8l 1ZZ-FE 4-speed auto and 5-speed manual
2003-2008 AWD 1.8l 1ZZ-FE 4-speed auto
2003-2006 GT 1.8l 2ZZ-GE 6-speed manual

Wheel information
Lug pattern:
-03-08: 5x100
-09-10 1.8l: 5x100
-09-10 2.4l: 5x114.3

Bore:
All 1.8l: 57.1mm
All 2.4l: 54mm

Offset
All 1.8l: 34-42mm
All 2.4l: 39mm

I have a 2003 GT
I see some rims/tires 215/50/17 for sale.

Seller says: Champion fit Toyota Matrix 03 - 09 they’re fit Corolla 03-10

Will they fit my car? I checked the shop manual and the owners manual, both silent....

These are the 6-spoke 17" wheels seen at https://forums.genvibe.com/phpBB3/viewt ... 3#p491416

I see the offset is different. Does that imply these only fit cars with fender skirts?
