Moderators, if vendors need to pay please DM me and we will gladly set it up

We are going to be able to get super aggressive with wheel fitment on this thing. I am so pumped. I think right out of the box I nailed the fitment perfectly for the wheels, but need a different tire.

These wheels are for a beefy Tesla track set up, they aren’t what I put together for this car, they were just in the shop and I wanted to see how fitment looked.
This is an 18X9.5 +40 Enkei NT03RR. The tire is a RE-71R 265/45R18, and have plenty of clearance on stock brakes and suspension. Going to need to see how it does with coilovers which I’m hoping to have here in a week or two.

I think the final fitment that I am going to go with is a +30, and stick with the 265 or go up to a 275, but definitely bring the height of the tire down to a 35 or a 40. However I think an 18x10 would be easily doable with camber and +35/+40 and up to a 285. I think for the car it can get more than enough grip with a 265 on a 9.5.

Car rolled off the trailer this morning, 20 minutes later, these wheels were on. Yoinked the ECU out, so I could take pictures for Motec and Ecutek, and the factory wheels are at the tire shop getting some blizzies put on.

Will hit the Dyno next week for the baseline numbers. Then see what bolt-ons we can put together that play nice with the factory ECU and possibly provide some gains. But realistically until Tuning support comes out, it’s going to be a lot of development for the future and a lot of suspension mods. We already have some pretty good partners in Australia that have been working with the Yaris, and we’re hoping a lot is going to be cross compatible.

As we confirm fitment on any parts, including wheels that we offer that will fit, they will be added to the website. By the weekend there will be a new homepage allowing you to immediately choose between Toyota and Ford, then your vehicle.

What intake are you even considering running until aftermarket development starts? I know someone is running a GRY intake and it fits other than 1 mounting point if I remember correctly.
We will likely be developing our own intake that will cross over onto our turbo kit. Once we have a tuning solution sorted out. We are already working with Motec, ECUTEK, and now possibly Syvecs.

once we have a Tuning solution, that’s when the actual testing of upgrades will come in. I’m fairly certain these are torque based tuned, so they target a specific torque at all times. So if you add a part that increases horsepower, you won’t actually see the full figures because ECU is going to dial back Boost in order to maintain that torque target.

So that torque target needs to be raised up in order to see the actual gains of any parts.

I think I know who you are talking about and he is running an HKS intake set up. Yes it does fit however, it is lacking the outer most mounting hole. Which isn’t really a big deal.

Thank you for the post! I was waiting for someone to let the community know. In the FB group you stated +35 but I see in the forum it is +30?
I took some measurements about 30 minutes ago, and from the fender to the lip of the rim we have about a 12 mm deficit. So that means we can likely go down an offset without an issue. Factoring in camber when the car gets lower. It will give us more clearance. So we might actually be even test fitting a +25.

Nice! It will be good to see the suspension stuff especially.
In terms of mounting locations I’m not worried about the stability of the box/mounting brackets more just curious as to if you guys would be doing a fully enclosed box. I am not a fan of “filters on a stick”. I work as an engineering designer with DINAN so im used to the design processes etc but this won’t be a platform we touch sadly.
Will y’all be doing any downpipe development? Or trying to stay away from the emissions aspect.

that sounds very similar to the bosch fk8 ecu.

They're fitting some tires they had on hand, not necessary an optimal setup. And for some folks, flush is more important than geometry when it comes to offset. Take sizes with a grain of salt until someone can get some tire testing/temps. This just tells us some bigger wheels fit.

Like those wheels though-

This tells us what we can fit. Putting an inch wider wheel, and a much bigger tire allows us to measure and get us the information we need for the biggest possible set up we can run or best fitment all together. We can do that with the stock wheel and tire as well obviously, but it makes it a little easier when you are ready start with something bigger.

Also, the post is very clear that this isn’t a set up chosen for the vehicle, it’s clearly only for testing and measuring.

I have an 18x10 wheel and a very low offset 18x9.5 wheel coming as well based off measurements from this setup.

You don't happen to have any 17" wheels laying around for test fits do you? Some of us will be shopping for -1" snow wheels soon. With the low clearance, it would be interesting to see how tall a tire we could get on the car.

I thought I saw someone mount a set of 17s but the clearance was really tight. It may be model specific if you go with 17s.

There will be room for 17s but will depend on the wheel honestly. Just have to give it a shot and see what happens. I think most are going to work that are going to be high offset.

I am personally running 225/45R18 Blizzies on factory wheels and it's great.

Agreed. It will definitely depend on the wheel shape/type. Not all are going to work especially with lower offsets.

One thing I noted when I looked at my buddy's car today is that the rear quarter panel is not "prerolled" from the factory. This is going to be an issue when it is lowered.

It's a bit more complex than "just roll it" since it is not a metal panel but a plastic one, so it will need to be cut to allow for better wheel clearance for aggressive offsets. I'm sure there'll be aftermarket bolt on solutions long term as wide bodies become available.
