I have been in talks with a wheel shop to potentially order the wheels for my GRCE as soon as I get confirmation that I am getting an allocation. However, the wheel shop is advising me that they have a good indication that the bolt pattern for the wheels will be 5x100 (like the outgoing Corolla Hatch), while I have a pretty good indication that it will be 5x114.3 like the GRY.
Are there any official statements, pictures, or data that indicate the bolt pattern?
I remember seeing a picture that the wheel will be 18x8.5, but I haven't found one with the bolt pattern.
Please help out.

Would find it unlikely they go with 5 x 100 like my old 2004 Subaru, its a total pain in the ass to get aftermarket wheels for now as its all gone 5 x 114.

Don't really care as I will not be swapping the stock wheels as I love the ones on the CE with all the GR logo cast into the rims. I do hope some clowns over here don't like them however as it pays to pickup a spare set if you plan to keep the car a long time. Reminds me of the Subaru WRX Sti a few years back, everyone hated the rims on those and they were going real cheap.

In fact there are still several sets for sale.



Would have taken a set of those for mine but the stud pattern was wrong and I'm NOT fitting adapters,

This is where I am… fingers crossed my dealer gets allocated one (I’m #1 at my dealer) then I’ll be looking for a second set of stock wheels for snow tires

I don't have anything officially in writing from Toyota, but Sakamoto-san told me the hubs are direct from the Yaris including the 5x114.3 bolt pattern.

Anyone have an idea on aftermarket wheel fitments for the GR Corolla? A few of Larry Chen's Instagram photos revealed that the Morizo and Circuit editions have OEM wheel sizes of 18x8.5 +30. I would assume the Core would also have the same if not a similar size.

If true, does that mean the typical 18x9.5 +38 or 40 sizes that work well on Subaru's and Honda's won't work for this platform? For reference, the GR Yaris has an OEM wheel size of 18x8+45 which makes the 18x9.5+38-45 sizes work perfectly.

I have fit 18x9.5 et38 wheels with 255/35/18 tires on my regular Corolla Hatchback and drove it with these and lowered for close to 2 years.

The biggest issue any Corolla and GR Corolla owner will encounter with wheels around this size with coilovers is the space between the back of the wheel and coilover. If the coilover does not have camber plate top hats, you would be unable to give negative camber at the front hub with camber bolts. I could barely fit my pinky, and my coilovers did not have camber top plates. The rears clear, however It is a bit tight to one of the rear trailing arms.

There are also some owners who put 18x9.5 et45 wheels and they did not clear their coilovers, and possibly the same rear trailing arm would not clear either.

If any future GR owner is wanting to get 9.5 wheels and coilovers, my recommendation Is an offset between 30 and 22 in order to give enough room to dial in negative camber at the front, whether it be for performance or clearance. From what I can find, a 10 inch wide wheel would need a comparatively low offset, at the minimum et25.

I'm planning on looking for some wheels to use for my summer tires and I'll use the OEM wheels for winter tires. I figure that I'll look at how the OEM wheels fit and see how much more offset I want. I'll most likely stay with the OEM 235/40R18 tires and 18x8.5 wheels. If the +30 offset looks good I'll stick with it. My key is finding a wheel I like that is very light.

This is the route I was looking to go for my winter setup (using OEM wheels) but i'd really like to reuse my 18x9.5+38 wheels, just not sure if they would fit without much hassle since the OEM wheel is supposed to be a +30 offset

Yep, those wheels will give you 21mm less clearance on the inside and poke 5mm more so you might need to wait and see if they clear.

The CE as far as I'm aware gets the same wheels as the Core. Only the Morizo gets those wheels that you described.

If I am able to get the Circuit, I would eventually like to get a set of the Japanese RZ wheels (look a lot like the Moriso wheels but without the painted lettering). Anyone have predictions on where I should look to obtain these? Is there a japanese specific Toyota parts site that anyone recommends?
