I thought the TC had different wheels than the XB.

the 2011 was changed to a 5x114.3 the '10 and earlier has 5x100... i think im going to get them painted white or black though... not sure, i may keep the gun metal for a while.

I'd go with black. Or you could be daring and do some other color that works well with classic silver. Like.....green ha. Do it!

It's going to take me forever to save up for rims. With the rims and tires together and getting the car balanced and all that jazzy is so expensive. Plus I live in a bad neighborhood and they would probably be stolen the next morning.

I was told those don't protect much, just slows them down.

The trick to stealing wheels is not to have a bunch of locks but a strong set of metric sockets in tight increments. That is to say 14mm, 14.5, 14.74 and so on. A hammer and a chisel help too. My best recommendation is to buy cheaper lugs as the metal is more likely to strip when the pound on the lug socket to force it. Or park in good neighborhoods.

Splines are mostly the same pattern, so someone just needs a spline socket.
Keylocks are more varied.

There are a couple sets on ebay, but none come with the TPMS. The ones I got are from a shop in Cali that had it up on the scionlife forum. With the TPMS! They will arrive Monday according to UPS.

Out of all the 2011 tC takeoffs i've looked at in the last month (ebay, CL, forums, other) that set on SL was the only one that had decent tires mounted. Shipping cost to IN put them just out of my budget--congrats on a good purchase!!
