'14 XT aftermarket Rims and Tires

I apologize if I'm repeating a thread, but I searched and didn't find anything. I'm trying to see if anyone has replaced their factory rims with aftermarket... Specifically larger diameter 19" 20" etc. I saw one or two pics... But this should be a good place to get them all in one thread.

Here's kind of what I'm thinking of with my FXT in a year or two.

I'd love to see some off-road setups too. I may change my mind!!!

Some good information is available in this thread, but it is primarily offroad / 17 inch rims.

I did for my car as a test fit.


yea i know their test wheels for a brz our wall size is so high that even a 35 didn't fill up the wheel gap with out dropping the car all the way









From stock wheels and tires it was 27 1/4 off the ground from fender

added the 19x9.5 40 30 series tires it made it drop to 26 inches.
thats why the tires don't really work, but it was a test fit and these are a square setup from a brz that ravspec owns.

Crazy,

I saw that one, and I think it looks good, just needs like 235-245/45 or 50 series would fill it well, and also fit the rim better. I've never been a fan of the narrow tire wide rim look... But I'm more old school I guess. I'm sure very few have done a lot with aftermarket oversize rims... But this would be a good place to start keeping pics!

I've been telling people they are off a brz setup -_-
Tell me about it I almost didn't even want to drive the car. I'm going to go with a flushed setup and not stretch the tire.

I like the flat black too... Actually, the only thing I can't find to replicate that setup is the side skirts. The front And rear spoilers are both on japanparts.com. It would be easy to get the car wrapped in flat black... Or flat any color really. The car is actually from a 2013 car show... It was the 2014 Forester Sport Concept car for Sunaru motors. It's half of the reason I bought my Forester! Lol

I was under the impression the sides were just wrapped or painted in gloss black and not actually side skirts.

I am glad I did not see that matte black car earlier or green might not have made the cut.

If you look close, the shape is different, and I also think more protruding than, the factory ones.

Just a suggestion. There is a company my buddy showed me that does some awesome matte wraps. They have a blue that is insane! I can try to figure out the company again if interested. And the problem with car shows like that is that a lot of stuff (side skirts bumpers etc) are made one of a kind for the show.
