    Default New wheels and rubbers, maybe

    well i know ill need new tires soon down the road so i was kicking around the idea of 265/75r16. looking on here ive seen some trucks with the FJ cruiser 17 inch rims and i like them. i know this topic has been talked about a lot and i have searched a lot but it doesnt fit exactly to what im looking for with my truck. i have the 5100 set at the 3rd notch(~1.5 inch lift) on my 2000 v6 4x4 AC and was wondering with the FJ rims could i go to 285/70/17 and have no issues with rubbing anywhere. i also dont want to use wheel spacers.

    No. You will rub somewhere.

    I will make no recommendations on which rubbers to get. That's between you and your gf, sheep, etc.

    I run 265/75r16 on stock suspension no probs. It's only about a 1/2" bigger than 265/70/r16.

    yes i no they work. i like those 17 in rims but it seems like i can only get 265/70r17s which is the same size as 265/75r16. so i guess it would not be worth the money on new rims.

    o well thanks for the replies though guys.

    I've had my eye on Nitto Trail Grapplers or Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 in a 255/75r17.

    Currently I'm running 265/70r17 on stock 10 spoke wheels. They are a tad small with my Billy's at the 3rd notch for my preference. BUT, I don't want to go any wider, that's me though.

    Like you, I don't really want to use spacers, hence the 255/75.

    I'm also considering BFG KM2's in 255/80r17 or KM's in 255/75. I still have a year to decide.

    Good luck...

    Had to edit....remembered that FJ wheels are 16.

    Your right, the stock FJ wheels are indeed, 17".

    My mind is so wrapped up on the "Trail Team's" Black wheels that I forget about other FJ wheels.

    I have a set of the 16" FJ Cruiser TRD wheels sitting in my garage that I plan to mount in the near future. Picked up the set of 5 on Criagslist a few months ago. Trying to decide whether to mount Hankook Dyna Pro ATM, or the Kumho Road Venture AT. I'm currently running the AR Outlaw 2 with Firestone Destination MT.

    Lizard, they are 16". I will probably sell them with the tires (285/75/16) when the time comes.

    Those trd rims are sweet! I have kumho road venture at.285 75 16 There nice ..not very loud. They clean up easy . They have around 37,000 miles on them with about 50-60% tread. The tread ran down quick on the front outer tires, I needed an alignment.

    do those 285/75/16s rub at all on anything? it looks like your truck is sitting on stock ride height.
