...I say maybe...depending on whether they fit...
I got a line on these rims...17"ers up from the stock 15s....photoshopped here (on top) for comparisons....
They are 35 or 38mm offset (depending on different sites' specs)...VS the 50mm offset of the OEM wheels, it should be just about the right fit...

Whadahyathink.....?



I suppose I could add a spacer if necessary...
Here's a comparison of specs using a 205 (rather than a 215 tread/section width of the OEM/17s on other models)...the results are nearly identical to the 15" I have now...so I'd be safe with the 205 if a 215 (OEM on the Solara) wouldn't fit...

I've been told to go with the 215...here's the comparison to the 215 tire spec...

Much prefer the ones you have on there already.

I think its just a bad photoshop job making it look off.

I Like the new ones.

I like the wheels.
Have never liked that era of Camry for looks but the rims look better on it for sure.

Honestly I think its the shiny rims with the gramdma colored camry look off. Maybe the same rims only less bling bling looking?

Personally I'm a fan of the traditional 5 spoke alloy. I put a set on the Audi for a classic Euro look.

The only thing I will say is that you may to consider 16s if you aren't lowering the car. Sometimes 17s can look off at a stock ride height.

I can take or leave the looks, but I would personally not go with the new rims. The extra 6 lbs. per corner of unsprung weight isn't going to help a Camry's already modest handling.

they are all blingbling shiny weird on a dull low quality camry photo that has alot of aliasing artifacts for one thing.

No ROI. Spend money on 17s and then each and every time you need new tires you're also spending more. A Camry isn't a track car. No ROI.

I think Tire Rack recommends a 215/50R17. More or less than same as a 205/55r17 but with many times more the options.
