Default Will these wheels fit '97 camry?

I recently purchased a used '97 Camry LE. The previous owner had replaced
the OEM wheels with 14" after market wheels.

My friend owns a '97 Camry XLE in which he says he replaced his 15" OEM
wheels with 16" after market wheels. He has offered me the OEM wheels
that were on his Camry.

I am assuming that the original wheels for my car were 15" and that his
OEM wheels that he is offering will fit my '97 Camry LE.

Yes. The 97 Camry will take 14" wheels as standard and 15" as
optional. Make sure the stud pattern is the same and you will have to
buy new tires.

Won't changing tire size throw off the speedometer and odometer?

I think that the speedometer and the odometer would not be a problem
especially if the car was originally designed to used a 14" as standard
and the 15" as an availaable factory option.

Thanks,

The V6 came with 15" wheels and the 4 Cyl had 14" wheels. The only option
was whether you got alloy instead of the standard steel wheels(but alloy is
standard on XLE).

The aspect ratio and tread width of the tires where different on the 2 wheel
sizes, such that the overall diameter was fairly close to the same.

How does that work? Is there an adjustment on the speedo/odometer that
accounts for the different distance traveled each rev?

The tires that go on the larger wheels are wider and have a lower aspect
ratio, so that the total diameter difference between them is less than one
inch difference in the rim diameter.

The question still remains. Will the 15" wheels fit the '97 Camry LE.

Thanks,

I have a 97 XLE Camry with the allow wheels.

If the rims have the same bolt pattern, which I'm
sure they do, you should be fine

As long as you also change to the appropriate 15
inch tire size.

Good deal you got!
The seven spoke rims go for $350. new!

Enjoy!
