Fronts are narrower. Rears are a different offset, which can I think be spaced out with bits from Elise parts.

Fronts work but narrower.

Adding 20mm spacers work putting rear wheel from toyota onto rovers.
Therefore won't work other way round

Unless you want the Carlos Fandango look (showing my age)

Doh.

Yeah they're the winter wheels for the shed with Uniroyal rain tyres on...

That IS a good look.

Get some forged five spokes and swap your tyres onto them for your summer wheels and use the ones on it for winter. 👍

Or just buy a set of new team dynamics in Black for £500.

Did your last car not have the wrong offset wheels too. Toyota on a k and now you want the k’s on a yota?

Woody always reckoned they were wrong but I think he was mistaken. I mean I couold just try but I'd have to go outside, and it's cold, and I'd have to get tools out etc etc.

You have a heated garage. They were wrong, somehow.

So is the one in your eBay link, looks like an s1 111s wheel?
