Hi guys,

Super basic question, I know-- but I know very little about cars and I'm trying to pick up more info on the internet.

I've got some extra cash right now and it is time to replace my stock tires which are 225/65R17.

I ski a lot, so my plan is to put snow tires on my current steel rims, then get a set of more aesthetic alloy wheels to put MPG tires on.

How do I look for new wheels? Does the size need to be exactly the same as my current ones?

Thanks.

no they do not need to be the same size.....go to websites like tirerack.com or discounttiredirect.com and put in your vehicle information and they will list wheels that fit...they will also list tires that fir as well...on the exterior section of this forum is a thread devoted to aftermarket wheels...will give you an idea of what others such as myself have done...

The best thing to do is to buy some RAV4 factory alloys of your vintage. Either used or refurbed. Look on ebay. I prefer the look of factory alloys over aftermarket. The RAv4 has a different off set that most other toyota wheels.

I did exactly what you are thinking and went with a set of limited 17". I paid $300 for four, no TPMS. I would have paid $400 maybe even up to 5.

I however put the winter tires on the alloy wheels as I did this right when I bought the car and the stock summer tires were already mounted.

Is it also true that 4WD Ravs have different wheel offsets, and if so, what are they?
