Aftermarket Wheels ?

Has anyone put rims on their 2016 Scion iA ?? Really interested to see what people have done so far and hopefully give others some idea. Try to include sizes, offsets, etc. !

Those look awesome on the car, helps give the car a more upscale look.

I know TireRack has a bunch of wheels for our car, and they show a preview of what it will look like - pretty slick. Eventually I want to get some different wheels and lower the car a bit, help it look more aggressive.

I attached some ideas I've come across on the internet. None of these pics are mine - so all credit goes to the owners.

Yesssss, they are all nice!
If you're looking for cheaper you can also check out your local craigslist! Show us what you decide to get!

And idk if you saw my post but you can finance (or buy outright) the megan racing coilovers for $785 shipped in the U.S. thrift Kustom Dreamz Garage on Facebook! I made a post about it in the suspension, wheels, etc. section!

I think I might try some new springs. Tanabe has some for the iA, which drop it 1.5 inches. Enough to close the wheel gap, while saving the shocks.

Going to try that before the summer is over!

Nice, that should definitely clean up the look quite a bit. I've always been fond of a nice modest drop. Nothing like frame laying. Still functional but clean

Me too! I don't want to be a magnet for cops who enjoy handing out tickets for suspension modification. :/

If I decide to do this I'll make a build thread. I know it can be hard to remove the springs from the pockets with the solid rear beam suspension, I need to take a look at it on the iA. Does anyone have any pictures/diagrams of the rear layout?

Also, a mod might want to move this thread to suspension/wheels section.

Fail, I didn't even realize there was one of those... but yes mods please !

A build thread would be ideal, I'm sure lots of would love to keep track of what's going on !
