17" wheels - Lexus is 200

Recommended Posts

I live in central Kent & I am looking for someone within a hundred miles to swoop my 18" wheels for someone 17" wheels.

 

Anyone interested?

You're showing as being in Shropshire, which is more than the hundred miles I stated as the outside distance I'd go.

If you were willing to come down, we could swap them.

Just out of curiosity why are you changing from 18s to 17s?

I have just gone the other way with mine on the LS.

I'm not that interested in cars, nor in huge wheels where they don't really fit comfortably.

18" wheels will not fit in the spare tyre area in the boot, cost more than 17" & I think are more prone to problems-more inclined to blow.

No, as I've alluded to elsewhere in this topic, I can only get a small emergency 17" wheel in the boot; which is part of the reason why I'm trying to replace my 18" wheels with 17" wheels.

They don't fit in my wheel well either.

if you have 225.40.18's they will fit your spare wheel well,however there's a trick to getting it in.

You have said this before, so what is the trick? Not inflating it fully?

Well as it happens I managed to damage my rear near side tyre today so even with no pressure in it I tried once again fitting it in the wheel well and it would not fit. Maybe it has something to do with the year the car was manufactured.

except I take mine out,not sure which side you put in first,however try putting the tyre in by  placing the side facing the rear lights in first(in a slanting position) and you should be able to push the edge facing the rear seats in,if that doesn't work try reverse(put the edge facing the rear seats first).hope this helps

Scary that nobody commented on the tyres.

I would have done if there had been a matching pair... I was more worried about the state of the kerb stones....
