    Hello everyone! I was wondering if 18inch wheels with an offset of 35, a width of 8J and 225/40 tires will rub inside the wheel arches when the car is fully loaded. I plan to keep the original springs. Thanks!

    That's exactly why I was asking in this specific thread about wheels on Gen4 Prius

    "Just sayin" that is a fairly detailed set of conditions and the tolerances are going to be close without extra weight. Is there a standardized weight limit for the Prius? 1000 lbs / 450 kg ? Would the extra weight be passengers, all in the cargo area, or some other configuration or weight distribution?
    I hope you get lucky and someone else has already done what you're asking about and it has worked for their Gen 4.

    Hi everyone ! I finally found what I was looking for

    A set of 18x8j ET35 wheels (RIAL "Lugano", very similar to Volkswagen "Interlagos" rims). They are second hand but in good condition, and are mounted with 235/40R18 winter tires that will soon be replaced with summer tires with proper dimensions (though I'm happy to announce that 235/40 tires don't rub).

    If OP is still interested, I'm about to replace the stock OEM + Hubcap combination on my recently acquired 2018 Four with 2018 BRZ wheels. They have the same lug spacing and default tire size as the touring package [​IMG] and I'll just use a bore spacer. Pics to follow tomorrow!

    Here you go, BRZ/Toyota 86 wheels. I forgot that you have to use an 8mm spacer to get the wheels to clear the callipers. you also need to change lug nuts. prius new wheels.jpg
