Venza wheels are 5X114.3 with a 35 mm offset, compared to 45 mm for the stock Rav wheel. It should clear, but I don't know that there's any way of really knowing without actually putting it on there. It'll be the spoke clearance with the brake calipers that is the issue.

I personally think they will fit, I did a bit of researching awhile back, if fact I was the one that raised the question awhile back here... Just never pursued it any further, got too many rims laying in the garage.

I personally like the 10 spokes better than the 5 spoke ones.

The wheels may work but not with the 245/50-20 tires that come on them. They are 1.5" taller than the 18" tires on the RAV4 Sport which may rub when turning.

245-45-20 would be the perfect tire size...

Based on the specs of the newer Highlander wheels (17" or 19") as well as the Venza wheels (18" or 19"), the lug pattern of 5 x 114.3 should fit. These wheels mentioned have 35mm offsets. However, based on the design of the back of all these wheels (Highlander and Venza), they will not clear the front braker calipers on 4.3 RAV4's.

I posted this information sometime last year twice on two different threads. If you really want Venza or Highlander wheels on your RAV4.3, you will need to use 5mm spacers on the front, as well as install longer lug bolts.

I personally have tried fitment of the 19" Highlander Sport/Limited 5-star wheels on my RAV4.3 and it didn't clear the front brake calipers. Therefore, I used 5mm spacers for about 2 weeks (and did not change the lug bolts out for longer ones, making the front wheels shimmy as the factory nuts barely screwed on to the factory bolts with this setup). I felt it was unsafe and did not want to spend the time (nor money) to pay a shop to change out the front bolts to longer ones.

This is also the same problem if you want to install the Venza or Highlander wheels on a 2007+ Camry or Lexus ES350 or GS350/430/460. If you have a 2006 Lexus GS300 (including AWD), it will work as the brake calipers had a slightly different (smaller) design that will allow these wheels to mount without the use of spacers and longer lug bolts.

I hope that helps.
