The aftermarket has started to get their grubby little hands on the GR Corolla thanks to a measuring session organized by SEMA. Here's an article from The Drive about their findings.

Many good things to come.

Oh nice! Peter was actually in the time slot after the one I was in that day. Didn't know we had a mutual friend till we ran into him. Toyota has the best measuring sessions out of all the brands that work with SEMA Garage.

(snuck in this photo, in case anyone was interested how CEs look on the GRC. mackin industries showed up and was also in the same time slot as Peter. they rolled up with boxes of Rays wheels)
The CE28s were exactly the wheels I had in mind for this car!

I should've asked the guy what the spec was on that CE. I didn't notice this till I got home that day, but check out how much the axle sticks out in the center of the wheel. Running those flush center caps might be a problem. Could also be the angle of how I took the photo too, I dunno. I didn't wanna be weird. Lol.
I'm used to no center caps on my TE37SLs. 🥲

It just occurred to me. CEs on a CE. 🤣

the speed holes in the back?



There were specific time slots you had to sign up for. They change it to this format since the Rona Arc started. So there's only a handful of people in each 2-hr time slot so it doesn't get crowded. So it's not that I "can't" say who I saw that was there. To be honest, I don't even know who the other companies were that were in our time slot. But Mackin Industries were there as I was leaving. If you don't know who they are, they are the main distributors for Rays Wheels (like Volks and Gram Lights), Yokohama Wheels (aka Advan Racing), and few other brands.
Yes, those. I didn't know if they had some fancier function.

All the aftermarket companies gearing up to help people void warranties and ruin their cars with ridiculous "mods" at exorbitant prices. Toyota should have told these companies to go fuck themselves.

But mods bro.
Well, you're a bit of a Debbie Downer.

Hoping either Toyota doesn’t vin-lock the parts for the ME Rear Seat delete/sells them at a reasonable price, or the aftermarket took good measurements of those braces and puts out a replica version.
I'm excited to see what comes out for the car.

Excellent! This is what I thought based on my experience with the GS350 Fsport fronts being the same size rotors and same caliper style. It means my 17 inch wheels I have in the shed will likely fit.
I thought the same thing. They look exactly like the two piece GS F Sport brakes.

I have a set of 18x9.5 +38, 18x10 +40 TE37SLs on my IS350. Would be easy for me to test fit when I get the car. The Lexus has a double wishbone suspension in the front and required a 5mm spacer to clear the suspension.
