was just wondering about something posted in a thread: "15x7 with offset between 0 to +10 is spot on for KE's". I'm looking to upgrade wheels on my ke30, currently have some Tarago steel wheels 14x5.5 +30 (measured offset myself so hopefully its accurate) on stock standard (AFAIK) suspension, and the outer edge of the front rims is about 20mm in from the guard (rears have plenty of space). According to this willtheyfit.com link, 14x7 +0 will stick out and extra 2 inches, which makes it seem that they will not fit well. Do you need to flair/roll the guards to fit this size rim, or have i missed something in my calculations? I have also measured the stock ke30 wheel offset/size at 13x4 +40 meaning that 14x7 +0 would stick out an extra 78.1mm - does this sound right? any insight is much appreciated.
Hi guys, I'm continuing to further modify my ke10 and have reached the stage of rim fitment. I'm after an aggressive stance and refuse to believe that 14x6 is the biggest I can go. I'm currently looking at a few options...a 15x8 +0 rear and a 15x7 +10 front. Or 14x7.5 -7 Is there anybody out there who's seen or done something similar.... Any help is appreciated☺
Hello guys, I have bought an 1979 Corolla KE30, it's not in the best condition but I'm going to fix it. I want to buy new rims/wheels for it but I don't know what sizes that will fit without doing any modifications. Currently I know that the "Original" size are: 155/80 R13 5x13 4x114.30 ET27. This size is on the car now. Could you guys please help me out? :D
Hi, This is my first post. I've got a 1980 ke38 wagon that I'm slowly modifying to make it a more enjoyable ride. I'm not trying to build a tire shredder, just something that handles reasonably well and is comfortable to drive everyday. Am keen on doing a swap to a 7k as well. Having a bit of trouble sourcing one though (if everyone has got one, with the 5spd manual transmission, let me know!) I'm looking for a new set of wheels to put on it and have come across a pair of SSR MK1s that I think should look pretty good on it. I'm just wondering if there's any issues with the offset on a wheel like this with the old ke models. I know it will have a lot to do with the bolts used but I know it will increase the stress on the hubs (and/or axel?) The wheels I'm looking at are: Front pair - 13x8 - 19 Rear pair - 13x9 - 23 Any words of advice would be appreciated. Will
