17" Highlander OEM rims (2013) on a RAV4 (2008 Limited) - offset ??

Winter is approaching & time for swapping out the M&S summer tires.

Bought the low mileage RAV4 this summer, wearing Michelin snow tires & SUV came with the OEM aluminum rims & nuts.
- luckily the rusty steel rims, scared away the first two buyers
- otherwise, the RAV4 was totally rust free, even the undercarriage

As purchased:


Used the rusty rims & tires for safety check , next day purchase new Firestone Le2 tires & installed on the factory 6-spoke aluminum rims:


Now comes the 2013 Highlander OEM 17" rims, new 7-spoke takeoffs with 800 Km:
- these rims will be my summer wheels with the Firestone Le2 rubber


From what I gathered: Bolt pattern | Stud Pattern : Toyota Bolt Pattern

2008 RAV4 Limited - rim size = 17x7 & 5x114.3 bolt pattern, with a 45 mm offset
- Hub/Center Bore = 60 mm hole for Toyota center cap

2013 Highlander - rim size = 17x7.5 & 5x114.3 bolt pattern, with a 35 mm offset
- Hub/Center Bore = 60.1 mm hole for Toyota center caps

^^ Only the rim width (1/2 inch) so offset is different by 10 mm - anyone see a problem, with this?
- the new Highlander rims will be for summer now & RAV4 OEM rims for winter driving
Cheers, Larry

FWIW - I recently went through a similar situation ... except I was looking to amount 16" Highlander rims for my snows ... same specs regarding the offset. I had the local Toyota dealership actually mount one of the Highlander rims to physically check for clearance ... particularly the brakes.

The never used, OEM 16" silver steel Highlander rims did clear ... for now. The Service Tech said, and put it in writing in the work order, that currently the rims clear everything with the brakes having 6mm remaining on the pads. Additionally, the Tech noted the rims may not clear the brake assembly if new brake pads (measuring the full 12mm thick) are installed. I guess it's that close between the 35 & 45 mm offset and that's where the extra 10mm in offset comes into play.

It's a gamble I decided not to take and bought new black steelies (not the cheapos made in China that rust after 1 season) for our RAV and am selling the OEM, never used, Highlander rims. They may have worked. However, if they don't, I just don't need the hassle down the road.

Sorry I can't be more definitive ... when I posted the same question here a few months back ... no one had actually done this and the best I got was a "should fit".

BugJr - thanks for your quick reply.
- I know factory 14" muscle car Chev. rims won't fit on early disc. brakes
- however, the old 15" steel OEM rims will clear the original 4 piston calipers...with same offset or wider
So maybe the 16" Toyota rim application is tighter, than all Toyota 17's / and possibly less to do with different offsets...the million dollar question...

BTW - Are your new Highlander aluminum rims, 17" - got a photo, year & how much $$ ?
- feel free to add to this discussion & appreciate your help

The OEM Highlander rims were the 16" silver steelies I originally bought to mount snows on. I ended up with black 16" steelies bought from Cal Tire.

I will be using my OEM 17" aluminum alloy rims when I switch to summer tires. ~ BugJr ~

Offset is only how far in or out the wheel is, as you know. So closer to the strut or gearbox; or closer to the arch or liner. On the Highlander wheel, the outer edge will be approx 16mm further out, if I'm right.
Whether they clear your brakes depends on the design of the inside of the wheel, how much room the design of the spokes gives you, so only one way to check, try a wheel.

Picking up the 2013 Highlander alloy rims (17x7.5") on Sunday, and have summer tires mounted next week.
- I will let everyone know how they fit, on our 2008 RAV4 (came with 17x7" alloys), in a update

The original 2008 factory rims, will sport the winter Michelin tires / the Kijiji purchased Toyota 2013 OEM rims (takeoffs, with 800 Km usage), will see Spring/Summer/Fall driving, with Firestone Le2.

Almost all toyota wheels come with the 35mm offset. Only the RAV4 and one other that I can;t think of come with the 45mm. I actually thought it was 42 or 3. For that reason I found some RAV4 alloys for winter wheels (it was just a timing thing as the car was new with new summer tires on the stock wheels). I have read of many people that have gone with the lower offset and not had an issue.

Picked up the 2013 Highlander 7-spoke alloy rims, on Sunday night:
New List Price = $685 Alloy Rim + $36 Center Cap, times 4, plus 13% HSTax = $3,250 / set.
Kijiji Purchased @ $800 Canadian / all four.


Really like the grooved spoke design / with each adjacent side, tapered to a point.



On nice rims, I like to run Truck 100 psi designed chrome valve stems, with stainless steel caps - originally made for 1 Ton Dually...I buy them at a full tire shop.


Tomorrow:
a) 7-Spoke summer 17x7.5" rims & Firestone Le2 tires, being assembled
b) original 6-Spoke 17x7" RAV4 Limited rims, will be mounted with the Michelin winter tires
Update coming, following garage visit...and I appreciate all the input.

Used RAV4.3 came with these 17x6.5" steelies, for winter / now heavily rusted & deep flakes, of corrosion - cheaper grade manufacturing steel & poor primer & paint, may be evident here plus a general lack of washing & care.



2008 RAV4 Limited v6 - 17x7" OEM 6-spoke rims / now used for winter tires.


2013 Highlander 17x7.5" OEM 7-spoke rims
, only seen 3 weeks use / but wouldn't fit owners 2014 Highlander with 19" wheels - so they came up for sale, in Kijiji (Canadian Craigslist).
- now reserved for RAV4 summer tires
- perfect test fit & improves, the SUV look IMO / factory RAV4 tire sizes, used throughout
