Anyone have any info of the 17" Scion TC wheels that are so readily avilable on the market? I think they're heavier than XTs but the same style.
The wheels can be bored to our centerbore dimension within accuracy. For this type of fitment the wheels would need to be no more than +.005" larger than the oem hub diameter. The structural integrity of the wheel should not be affected. It would actually be easier to fit the wheels on a CNC mill and mill the bore than it would to fit them on a lathe unless said lathe has the capacity to fit something of this diameter. You also have to look at the expense. An average machine shop is going to charge anywhere from $30-$60 an hour and I would calculate at least 3 hours to setup and machine the wheels on a CNC mill. A lathe would take even longer unless the shop already has fixturing made. At least with a mill all that has to be done is clamping it to the table and indicating the bore of the wheel. Then a simple program can be made to mill the centerbore. Just my input on the matter.they are nice wheels and all, but I'm not sure it'd trust a shop to do a precision enlargement of the hole to within the proper tolerances. No idea what that would do to the structure of the wheel either (from a stregnth/safety standpoint)
