The stock lug pattern: 5x114.3mm (AKA-> 5x4.5 inches)
Lug bore/center bore: 60.1mm
--Significant for the use of hubcentric rings when mounting aftermarket rims (and also making sure a wheels centering hole isn't too small for a second gen xB).

Original steel wheels (steelies): 16x6.5 45mm offset
Weight: around 20-22 pounds (have heard varying reports and have not weighed one accurately)
--Weight is rim ONLY. Tires are heavy too.

Original tire size: 205/55/16 (205mm face, 55 side ratio, fits on 16 inch rims)

Overall rolling diameter: 631.9mm
It is "best" for accuracy of the speedometer, odometer, and on-board computer readings (like MPG) to be as close to that overall diameter as possible.
The best chart for that is: http://newscionxb.com/wheels_tires/eddnogs_xb_20_wheel_tire_chart-t23.0.html

What size rubber are you running?
The tires make a huge difference in altering the mph computer readings.
Use this chart: http://newscionxb.com/wheels_tires/eddnogs_xb_20_wheel_tire_chart-t23.0.html
Use the sizes in green and it should be close to the MPH in the computer.
(Whether the computer is programed slightly higher than actual, I don't know-> some vehicles are.)

The sizes closest to stock (according to that chart) are:
215/40/18 (reads -0.2575 mph off)
225/40/18 (reads 0.4991 mph off)


(Mods, please break these posts into its own thread, keeping the first post in this one cleaner and to the point-> technical info. Edit: move this post to the new thread that asks the exact same thing.)

Hi gang:
long time no see, been workin' 7 days a week, I know thats a good thing in this economy. I have thought about trading the 08 xb for an 09 xd. Will my snow tires & rims from the xb fit the xd I noticed that the xd has 16" wheels & the specs are close, the lug pattern and offset would probably be the deal breaker. I have $330. into the rims and $350. into the snows so I probably wont do the trade if they dont match. I like the standard tranny but living on the coast has a serious drawback , traffic jams in the summer. so if I get an auto tranny it would be less painful in the bumper to bumper stuff after work.

I think the xD matches the tC with 5x100 lugs.
The xB2 has 5x114.3, the same as many Toyotas.

So, the tC or xD won't match/fit the xB2.
I don't know why Toyota didn't make all 3 match.

Re: weight

I weighed an OEM wheel and tire - 41 lbs. After converting to a Enkei ES6 (16x7), spec'ed at 19 lbs, my wheel+tire weighed 42 lbs. Ugh! Conclude that the OEM wheel is 18 lbs. Confirmed this by weighing a bare wheel. Any market for the OEM steel wheels?
Wish I had selected a lighter wheel.

so if i were to buy 17" wheels, and i dont want the wheels to stick out too far or be in too deep! so a 45-40 offset would be good?!?

Hi everyone I am new here and just got my 11XB. I just pick up a set of Volk Racing old school honey cone style and they are 16x7 35 and rear 16x8 38. It is ok for this setting I mean it should fit and safe?

Short answer: stock offset is 42. These wheels should fit especially if you use the stock tires.

Long answer: Go to www.rimsntires.com, input your 2011 Scion XB, then click on the Compare Sizes link and enter your wheel data. You can also enter new tire data to see what you might be able to upgrade to. Be careful not to change the rolling diameter too much or you will cause your speedometer/odometer readings to be in error.

Not only the readings, but the engine ECU and a host of other ECU functions that factor tire rotation in it's workings.
