ive got two wheels all ready to go with brand new tyres never used off an 80's toyota corona or corolla.

they're 14", they're the same height n stuff as my tyre on my car. the studs line up n everything.

i just wanna know if this means that they'll fit.

im pretty sure they are the same offset. DO NOT quote me on that though.

bolt the wheels up and whilst the car is in the air turn the steering wheel one full lock to the other and see if the foul anything. if not then bring the car down and do the same. if this all checks out then drive it, but call a wheel shop ie. ttf and ask them about offsets and stuff.

The other most important part is does the centre hole in the wheel rest on the stubb of the hub. It should be a just fit type of thing. This is where the weight of the car rests. All the studs and wheel nuts do is hold it in place.

i've seen a rav4 with ford wheels on. was ba wheels but, so based on this i'd say right stud pattern, wrong offset for pre-au.
