    X2 on the 17in wheel. I will be buying new wheels and tires next year and so far nothing has grabbed my attention. I like the 5 spoke look and I dislike the rivets in the wheels. I sort of want all chrome or black with polished silver rim/highlights.

    If you can, try to get your hands on some 350Z or G35 rims. They look wayyyy better than most aftermarket rims.

    Thank you for the recommendation. Some of the Infinity rims look sweet in 18in.

    Since I just have a 4-cyl won't the larger wheels give less mpg?
    I don't want to do any mods that give less mpg.
    And how do you change the speedometer to read correct?
    Also, I've decided to go with black wheels...any suggestions?

    Since I just have a 4-cyl won't the larger wheels give less mpg? Depends on the tire size. As long as the new tire/rim combination is the same as the old there should not be a change in the speedometer reading or the MPG.
    I don't want to do any mods that give less mpg.
    And how do you change the speedometer to read correct? I do not know sorry. There may be a way to adjust the parameters in the on board computer but I have not delved into that for a Toyota.
    Also, I've decided to go with black wheels...any suggestions? You have the same problem I have. I need to keep looking myself. ;)

    Unless you go with a much bigger wheel/tire size, it shouldn't affect the mileage too much....i have a 29" tire/wheel combo and my highway mileage went up a bit
    I don't want to do any mods that give less mpg.
    And how do you change the speedometer to read correct?
    Larger wheels will correct your speedo. our stock tires are a bit small so the speedo will read slow. with my tires, it brought the speedo up to what the real speed is. i checked it with those radar things lol. so, unless you get something larger than me, a 29" wheel/tire combo, you should be fine. my speedo is perfect right now lol..
    Also, I've decided to go with black wheels...any suggestions?

    I had the same problem. Cost was also an issue. I deceided to paint the wheels the same color gray as the grill. Left the outer edge of the wheel silver for some contrast. Looks real good.
