What wheels for winter tyres

Recommended Posts

I want to get some winter tyres and would prefer to fit them to 16s and not 17s, the tyres are pretty expensive in a 215/45/17.

The CT 16s seem to be a rare find so I'm looking at Avensis ones.

So if you've fitted these or any other Toyota wheels can you post a photo up so I can see how they look.

Thanks

Be interesting to see this too. Apparently the CT has a different PCD to other Lexus models.

Some Prius wheels fit but you have to be careful of the offset of them.

Yes no other Lexus wheels will fit the CT, it has a PCD of 5x100, the others are 5x114.3, which is very annoying.

The Prius and Avensis both have the same offset as the CT, although some seem to be 39 rather than 45 but that difference is so minimal it shouldn't matter.

What is the tyre size for the CT on 16" wheels, is it 205/55/16?

A few I've seen on ebay are below but I'm not sure what would suit the car.

Or the other option is to buy some new cheap alloy wheels.

Otherwise it means buying the CT 17" wheels and another £100+ on top extra for the tyres compared to the 16s.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I want to fit cheaper winter wheels on my IS 300H F Sport. Can I fit 205/55/R16 on a 7J wheel (as fitted to the SE) instead of the 225/40/R18 F and 255/35/R18 R currently fitted?

I would save a significant amount of money.

I'm running winter 215/55r16 on one of our IS f-sports. The other IS f-sport is on 18 inch winters. But the ride is so much better on the 16's

Rich,

Not sure if you managed to source wheels and winter tyres yet, but I have a set that was used on a CT for three winters to good effect.

They are for sale if you're interested
