I saw a new Scion TC while I was out today. The rims look a little more defined, and more agressive sharper lines than the older TC rims. I know NOTHING about off sets, bolt patterns, spacing and such. Does anyone know if they are the same size as previous Scion years, and if they will fit. The wheels I have on my car now are from an older model TC, roughly a 2010 year model. They are 17" and I had to have them machined to expand the opening by 1mm.

Here is a 2016 Scion TC


Here are the Scion TC wheels, circa 2010 on my car now:


And here is a very rough PhotoShop of the wheels on my car. I do like the look....

They are 18x7.5" wide with a 39mm offset. The issue is that the bolt pattern is 5x115
If it had the right bolt pattern, it would move inwards about 3/4" from the stock lace wheels with that offset.

2 nails in the coffin, 18's AND the wrong bolt pattern. I just purchased new tires (around 200 miles on them) and was looking for a 17" replacement.

It's a shame, as I really like the look of these.

My original Scion rims are bubbling and starting to look really bad. Not too sure what the issue is, as the car has always been under roof.

Those DO look good on your car - too bad they won't work, I really like the pattern also.

Check out the FK Ethos RT-7M (from Discount Tire)
Not exactly the same, but similar, come in 17", and fit the Fiero

And GORGEOUS car BTW

John...here is another Scion option with little effort I have utilized on several of my Fieros:

As you can see it is a alloy and black rim...the place that is the un-painted alloy (silver) cold easily be powder coated the same blue color as your paint...which might look pretty cool and very custom.

Nice, but a little "smoother" then the new 2016 ones for sure. I have looked at wheels for a few years now, and I find it hard to find one I actually like enough to purchase. As always, the one I did see, and thought would work, will not.

I will keep looking.....
