The Esti has a 114.3 x 5 PCD I think, so alloys with that stud pattern will fit, however, check the weight rating of the rims you look at, as Estis weigh a lot!!. Rav 4 wheels fit I think, as do Ford Probes.

Had a K&N induction kit for a Toyota Rav - which I sold to Mr Mince after my head went pop!

He fitted it at our Scarbrough Meet with no problems at all ...just need to trim one of the pipes provided in the kit to ensure the filter fits in the empty airbox space


Swanny's right about the PCD - full spec:

PCD = 114.3 x 5 stud
Offset = 35 to 42
Bore = 60.1

Have a look at this PCD Chart - HERE - to see what similar PCD fits.

Wheel Load Index is critical - for example, MR2 wheels fit but aren't strong enough and can buckle.
Often (used) Sellers don't know where to find their Load Index - usually stamped on the inside of the rim - so often it's best to check kerbweights of the vehicle they come off.

See - HERE - for Load Index Charts...about halfway down the page  Wink


17"s are a good fit for an Esti - know of some who have fitted over 18" with scuffing issues  :Smiley

The offset of the genuine Toyota Alloys on my Previa are 50. They came off the new shape Previa and are a perfect fit.

You can get the same growl by drilling holes in the airbox  Wink Grin


...not recommended though!  :Smiley

If you get a custom pipe made up, you can get much better MPG and performance........just bypass the CAT!
