For a better ride and especially with bad roads, I would recommend a higher profile tire than what you are running now. Probably something closer to the stock tire size would be optimal. With bad potholes, one big impact with low profile tires will almost certainly bend one of your alloys. Something to ponder.... :wink:

Mensa is saying going smaller, and I can only back him up on that one. We have some pretty rough roads and I have seen too many of my friends rims get destroyed.

As for the Rav fitting bigger....well, you can go up to a 20 inch, but it is totally impractical. Someone had 20s. Ride will be uncomfortable, and they will be destroyed easily.

Two possible reasons that that particular rim will not fit on our RAVs. First, the wheel bolt diameter is not the same as our 5 x 114.3mm. And secondly, the offset may not work with our RAVs.

Is there a way to make it fit? Maybe. For the offset, depending on how much play there is; wheel spacers can be used. For the different bolt diameter sizes between the wheel and the RAVs hub; they do sell spacers that accomodate between two different sizes. I wouldn't recommend it however. But it is possible.

If anything, I would try to get wheels that are made in the same wheel bolt diameter and offset as our RAVs to eliminate as much problems with fitment and performance as possible. :D
