A search can turn up many different results.
Mazda 323 rims fit, as do RX-7 'telephone dial' rims. Also, Ford escort rims fit. I saw a set or escort gt rims on a 323 the other day, so it should match our 4-bolt pattern.

That's 'cause the 323 and the Escort were practically the same cars (and would mean that the wheels will fit our cars... heh heh...). :P

Only 86-89 Escorts and 323's will work. The 90+ use the smaller 4x100mm bolt pattern.

Also Ford Tempo and Mercury Topaz wheels fit (same as Escort) and I know the 74-93 Mustang wheels are the same bolt circle but the offset may be wrong.

I've watched this thread for a while and waited to see who would bring this up - the "bolt pattern" or more correctly - the PCD (pitch circle diameter) is only ONE of the things that needs to be considered when selecting wheels - the rim diameter, width and offset are just as crucial.

There are probably a hundred or so older Toyota models - the rear wheel drive ones - with the correct PCD, with suitable rim dimensions, and incorrect offsets - they may or may not fit, but even if they do fit & clear the suspension and body, what effect do they have on your suspension geometry? Do they affect the track? Do they affect the scrub radius of the steering?

On the other hand - I can locate 10", 12" rims with the correct PCD, that you're not going to get onto the hubs - period.

if anyone ever used the search button ....
check this thread
http://www.teamswift.net/viewtopic.php? ... wheels+fit
another big issue is the hub center bore, gti hubs are ~60mm anything smaller won't fit, however i'm pretty sure the non-gt/gti's have a smaller hub circle ..
http://www.teamswift.net/viewtopic.php? ... wheels+fit
as long as the wheels are no wider then ~6.5" then an offset of around 35-40mm usually works, i'm not sure about the exact backspacing required.

i have mazda 323 GTX turbo rims on my car and they are perfect. the only part is that you have to hone some of the centre of the wheels out, but just a little bit.

Odd that no one posted that directly in this thread. It's probably in one of the links that n1tr0 posted a bit earlier though. Anyway...

4x4.5" is the pattern. Lugs on a 3-cyl Mk2/3 metro are 10mm, all other lugs ought to be 12mm. Keep this in mind when you get new nuts, since you'll either need ones with a wider shoulder if you've got an Mk2/3 Metro or you'll need to use thick washers to take up the slack (temporarily) before you upgrade the studs to 12mm.

No one can convince me that using nuts with wider shoulders or using washers is a 'safe' method of taking up the extra slack when you have 10mm lugs.

That's 'cause I can't remember the mm conversion equivalent (and I didn't want to give out the wrong info). ;)

Ok, thats the 4x114 one. Strange... I thought it would be 4x100!

Ok, so I'm looking for 4x114 with 35-40mm offset?

Hey guys does anyone know where the post on wheel weights went? I had it bookmarked a while back but its not there anymore. Also on the on the Rx-7 wheels I would like to, very respectfully, ask that they be left for the Rx-7 owners as they are becoming rather difficult to find.
Thanks, J.

And for th Aussies.. TM Magna (mitsubishi) will fit, but you need hubrings for th centre alignment....and also Sigma (mitsubishi) and Toyota cressida (early models) and also Nissan Pintara and Bluebird, dont know about th offset and hubcentre on these, but th general PCD is right
