Ya? Or Nah?

Having an identity crisis... test fitting some R35 Nissan GTR stock wheels 20x9.5 et45 front and 20x10.5 et25. Bit lighter than the stock 18” Sport wheels. May still want to use a spacer on the front. Front barely clear the CEIKA Coilovers...Rear barely clear the main rear support bar...but it all clears.

I recently got my 2011 RAV stuck in the mud on my place. After getting a local farmer to bring a big FWD tractor to pull me out (tow boys only work within 100’ of pavement), I discovered that the factory steel wheels trap between the inner and outer dish, causing out of balance problems at freeway speed. I researched and found some cheap alloy wheels that are a replica of the Toyota six spoke wheels. At the same time I installed the wheels I put new BFG 225X65R17 TA KO2’s on the car. I really liked the KO2s on my 2000 RAV and wanted something better then what came with the car when I bought it. The wheels came with a year warranty, so I plan to spend lots of time in the snow and backcountry o test them over the next year. I’m going to see if I can sell the Steele’s on Craigslist to recover some of my upgrade cost.

Any rubbing with this setup? Would love to see more pics.

Whoa! That looks tight man. Might check out Bora spacers to take care of your possible rubbing issues.

The wheels are replicas of the Toyota factory alloy wheels. Fit perfect and seem to be the exact size of the 17” steel wheels. The brand was Road Ready. I’m liking them so far. What specific pictures do you want to see?

Already got some... 28mm front and 32mm rear. Might use the 28mm in the front with the R35 wheels but definitely won’t need them for the rear.

Straight side shot would be great.

You running stock 235/55R18 in those pics? I've been considering those spacers for mine, but have been concerned about the longevity and upkeep of them. I love my stock wheels, but hate how far in they set.

Nice! How's the ride? I found some locally and am thinking they'd look awesome on my factory sports wheels.


It rides fine. The BFG KO2’s are a little stiffer and noisier, but, I knew that before I bought them. I wanted tires with all around traction and wheels without major mud traps. All in all I think it’s a big improvement.
