I haven't recieved my black C-HR yet but in my opinion those original black/silver 18" multispoke wheels are a bit too skinny. Maybe not too small but too narrow without a doubt.

Has anyone changed wheels yet?

Id love to know what wheel sizes will fit. I hate a 215 on a 6.5j rim.

Be aware if you get after market wheels you will need to buy extra tyre pressure monitors too. Or I guess put up with a constant warning light.

You will have a warninglight present at all times if you use wheels without tiresensors. Your option is to buy additional sensors for the aftermarket wheels och transfer the stock ones to the new wheels.

Im keeping the stock wheels for winter/mot time. Il put up with a little light on. As long as it doesnt bleep at me. Got these on the way in 18" 7.5j (7-8kg dep on fitment).

My silver wheels go black every 5 days so I just bought black lol.



Wow have tyres got expensive. Found some 55 profile falken 914 ecoruns for £75. Im happy with a 6mm raise as this "coupe high rider" is hardly higher than an auris underneath and keep catching things on my squishy 60's.



Word of warning. If you hold the steering on full lock there is only maybe a 30mm gap on the inner side. Plus the outer face already looks close to the wing. So maybe this is why toyota refused to let me try other toyota wheels as a purchase after.

I think youre supposed to buy a new seal kit each time you remove them. Id think it would be easier to buy 4 more (£100) or just ignore the light.

Oh brain fart. Ill move the sensors to the summer alloys as they are on for 9 months and have the old ones without a sensor for 3 months.

No wonder these standard alloys are so heavy. Toyota dont know what that red dot means.

So instead of mounting it by the valve as its the low spot of the tyre they have had to install a shed loads of weights.

Cant wait to be rid of them.

Ive seen my new rims weighed at 7.1kg so fingers crossed. Just got my new 215/55r18 tyres but have no scales here. Its around 10kg at a guess(225/40r18 is just under 10kg). So hopefully a saving of 10kg all round and legend has it thats like 70kg worth of normal mass when you take it from the wheels.

So my black wheels arrived with damage and are being returned now rota is out of stock for weeks lol. I found bronze for £600. I love bronze but dont think it will go with dark grey. Cant find one car online in my colour with bronze rotas. Might be a sign it doesnt go lol. what do you think?

I had to select a gold wheel but the actual colour is these on the left (apparently the one on the right is matte grey lol)

I have been busy with other wheels also. You can go upto 8,5" wide, offset about 40 to 45.
Seen a C-HR on 20"x8,5J offset 45 and 245-35-20 tires. Not good for the mileage but it looks stunning!

For a great view try this German wheel configurator : http://konfigurator.premio.de/
You can set it to 3D view, change color and even lower it.

The standard 18s are 50 offset I think, Anyway a cheap set of 18" Oz ultraleggeras came up so ive gone for it. 18" 8j et48. Il put 5mm spacers on if needed but will try without first.

Wheels fit but the bolts are different. Il try to find imagaes to show. Ive gone from 11engaged threads to 8ish.



So im driving gently but it feels so much easier to turn etc and feel nippier. Im easily 2kg down per wheel.

Original type



Type came with new alloys

Looking good on those wheels!
Needed the spacers or not?
No spacers(if i needed them the bolts would be too short) But be aware if the wheel is thick you will need longer studs in the hub installed.

I personally think a chunky wheel would look better but I bought them to perk up the handling and economy. I was barely getting 56mpg on A roads and 45 motorway. Now im getting 62mpg and 48 on motorway.

It feels like a 1.9l now. More torque.

If i get 6mpg extra over 100k miles they have paid for themselves and been fun in the process.

I bought these tyres before I realised the rota 7.5js were faulty. So a mild stretch but still a recommended 8j fitment 215/55r18. Impressed so far all round
