I bought the wheels. the guy sell the wheels(rims and tires) in $300 USD, it's from a mustang. They are 16 x 7.5 (very wide) . the oem wheels are 16 x 6.5. I test them and it fit normally. tyres have 80% left.
I'm buying those ford mustang wheels because I just have $$325 and I don't have work until next summer so I need to wait a time if I want better rims.

16X7.5.......and bolt pattern the same......be sure to use concentric rings if the hub size is bigger than the RAV

Get out the camera again and get a pic of them on the RAV!!!

The rims you have will be ok in the front and rear.

I'm using 16"X7.0" +35 in front and 116"X8.0" +32 at the rear.

With the 7.5" rims, you can still stick with the stock tyres 215/70/R16, but anything bigger, you will have to go with the 235/60/R16.

You will not hit your suspension or anything, even with lowered springs and shocks.

which problem it can be make?
Checho, the problem you may encounter is high speed vibration. Take your RAV up to about 75+ MPH (in a safe manner :wink: ) and see if there is any vibration to the steering wheel. The hubcentric rings that Bluenoser is speaking of will ensure that your new mustang wheels will fit snugly to your RAVs hubs, thus eliminating any unwanted imbalance to your wheels fitting on your RAV. Just to let you know, the Skyline wheels that I have also have hubcentric rings; and I have not encountered any problems with them at all. :D

derek: when I bought the wheels it don't had any plumb square and today I balance the front wheels for $8 and I run to 85 near 90 and the rav was all normal.the only notable diferent is the great start(from 0 to 30)it have more grip and the wheels are light weight, and in curves it feel near like a car.

pancake: the grill it's a custom made
I was fading all the circles or web of the grill to do the grill that I have.

it look great but you need to pass it a sand paper and paint it ( I don't paint it and the grill look a bit ugly)

I made this grille for my RAV about 3 years ago. It replaced the original grille completely as i prefer the inset look of the new grille. Turned a TRD emblem into a removable grille ornament as well. BTW Checo, nice rims...what size tyres u running?

Chehco,

Just wondering after using the wheels for a while now if you have encountered any problems or still running fine.

Thanks.

no problems with the wheels. Better handling and a bit of brake response or something like this when stoping the car.

Not bad. I'm running the same brand tires as you checho, but my wheels are 17" x 8", with a 38mm offset. Tire size is 235/55/17 and no rubbing at all.

Handling has definitely improved on our RAV4 with current wheel and tire setup.

Checko, I forgot to ask if you had to get a 4-wheel alignment since the offset of the wheels you have now are 35mm???
