Toyota Yaris: Replacing wheels
WHEN TO REPLACE YOUR WHEELS
If you have wheel damage such as bending, cracks or heavy corrosion, the wheel should be replaced.
If you fail to replace a damaged wheel, the tire may slip off the wheel or they may cause loss of handling control.
When replacing wheels, care should be taken to ensure that the wheels are replaced by ones with the same load capacity, diameter, rim width, and offset.
This must be observed on compact spare tires, too.
Correct replacement wheels are available at your Toyota dealer.
A wheel of a different size or type may adversely affect handling, wheel and bearing life, brake cooling, speedometer/odometer calibration, stopping ability, headlight aim, bumper height, vehicle ground clearance, and tire or snow chain clearance to the body and chassis.
Replacement with used wheels is not recommended as they may have been subjected to rough treatment or high mileage and could fail without warning. Also, bent wheels which have been straightened may have structural damage and therefore should not be used. Never use an inner tube in a leaking wheel which is designed for a tubeless tire.
Do not use wheels other than the manufacturer’s recommended size, as this may cause dangerous handling characteristics resulting in loss of control. Otherwise, an accident may occur resulting in death or serious injuries.
