2006 Highlander Wheels/Tires (225-70R-16) on a 2009 Rav4 I4 Base?

We own a 2009 Rav4, Base Model, I4 with the stock size tire size being 215-70R-16. I have been looking for a second set of wheels since our snows are currently on our stock rims and found a set of rims from a 2006 Highlander mounted on 225-70R-16's on CL for $125. Will these fit my '09 Base I4 Rav4, and if so, can I use my stock lug nuts, or will I need a different set?

I was planning to buy some black steelies and have my summer tires mounted on those which would then give me the ability to swap seasonally right in my driveway. If the Highlander wheels will fit, will it still be an easy driveway swap or not so much? Thank you, I am not familiar with compatible sizes or use of spacers at all.

Here is a pic of the CL Highlander Rims:

I have 2013 Highlander 17x7.5" alloy rims on our 2008 RAV4 Limited v6 - lots of caliper clearance.
- and they improve the RAV4 look
Look here: 17" Highlander OEM rims (2013) on a RAV4 (2008 Limited) - offset ??

Re the lug nuts - not compatible between steel rims & Toyota aluminum rally rims.

PS - NO wheel spaces needed / but wife's Gen3 Limited had 17x7" alloy rims, as standard.
NOTE - 16" rims on a Base model, probably has smaller brakes than the Limited model ??

- 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

I may have not thought this through based on my excitement for a good deal...
So, I bought the rims which currently have 225-70R-16 tires on them with the intent to use the rims, not the tires. The tires I currently own and would like to use are 215-70R-16. Can a shop install the 215-70-16 on the rims that currently have 225-70R-16's on them or will they not fit?

edit: I can't make heads or tails out of the stamping on the rim itself. I attached pictures - Can anyone decipher this for me and let me know the exact rim size?

Post 1 photos are Toyota Highlander rims.
Post 3 photos, don't show a OEM-Toyota canter cap / are they factory or aftermarket ?

Judging from the stamps / looks like 16" rims via. 6" wide / with a 45 mm offset...my educated guess.

Good catch on the photos, I don't think it was a purposeful bait and switch but when I arrived today the CL seller apologized (late 50's female, dressed in nurse scrubs), said she used old pics, and when she went to get them out of the barn she realized she only had the winter rims which were aftermarket. Apparently they had their summer tires on the OEM Toyota and winter on the aftermarkets you see here. Her story added up in the sense that all 4 tires are winter tires (blizzaks) and the tire size matched what was in the CL ad (225-70-16).

I am excited to hear our summer 215-70-16s will fit, now I have to try to figure out which type of lug nuts to buy so the dealership does not rob me blind on a set from their stockroom when they mount/balance/install. I am sad they're not OEM Toyota wheels, but they will meet our purpose of having the winters mounted on one set, the three seasons mounted on another, so I can just swap them in the driveway in the future.

Curious cdgreg - How much you pay for the aftermarket 7-spoke alloy set of 4 rims ?

If all 4 of those rims have decent blizzaks.
You could just run them (225-70) until they are worn out / provided you will never need winter treads.
- your speedo will be out 1.9% slow
- as those tires (225-70) are slightly larger on diameter by 0.55"
- plus wider by 0.4"
See Link to tire size calculator, in my previous post #4.

$125 for all 4 wheels and tires, seller was about 15 minutes away. I was considering $68.00 per black steel wheel (x4 + tax) from Walmart before I found this CL posting. It has been pouring here all day, so I have not done a thorough inspection, but two of the blizzaks are definitely not worth keeping, the others appear to have about 40% tread, so I may be able to sell them for a few bucks on CL and knock the net wheel purchase cost to $100. I have winter tires already mounted on our Rav4 OEM wheels at about 70% treadlife. These will be used to mount our Summer/Fall/Spring tires which are 215-70-16s.

Do you happen to have any lug nut style knowledge? I attached 4 pics of the lug nut holes. Would you say these use a typical lock nut with cone seat or typical lock nut with radius seat?

Thank you again for your help. I am really enjoying learning about our toyota vehicles. I am going to tackle the transfer case/differential fluid changes when it stops raining!

cdgreg - $125/set...you did real good there.
- nothing irks me more, than cheap black Steelies with/or without cheap plastic hubcaps

I paid $800 Chn or 600 American dollars for my 2013 Highlander rims, only 3 weeks old.
- their new rims in garage / & new vehicle was stolen out of couples driveway, when they went on vacation

Lug Nuts are much cheaper on E-Bay or Web sites, following is where my brother buys.
- their Jeep/GMC lug nuts - are top quality / they will have Toyota sizes
He orders from dp, so give them a call: http://www.dp-accessories.com/lug-nuts.html

Here in Canada...kijiji is common and craigsList isn't.
- but new aftermarket lug nuts are often listed cheap
Dealership in North charge ~$10/lug nut...Tire shops like ~$5-6/lug nut.
Kijiji ~$2-3/lug nut new...E-Bay ~$2/lug nut new

Nice find! I was looking for a set of these for my winters, I hate the black steelie look... also I run the same size tire for my winters.
