I hit the order button pretty hard today:
4 x BF Goodrich All Terrain TA KO2 tires (Black Sidewall) - size LT265/70R17
151619

4 x Toyota TRD Wheels 17"x7" part# PTR20-35110-BK
151620

4 x Black Aluminum Valve Stems (TPMS was disabled this AM)
151621

Lugs will be new Toyota stock as my 14 year old lugs are pretty chewed up

The stock OEM rims and 4 year old Grabbers are not doing well. It feels good to spend hard earned money on something that is going to totally transform my wife's Sequoia. Tons of great advice on this forum helped. I will post a before and after picture in a few weeks.

Looks like a great combo. KO2s performed well on my JK. Ordered wheel-tire combo 265/70R17 Yokohama Geolander AT G015 from Tirerack for my first-gen Tundra. Slight rub when backing up on front splash guard that will probably wear down in time.

Too bad my wife made me put the running boards back on. :-(

I'm itching to do the same. Post up some pics. I'm debating with going to a slightly bigger tire. I like the look of the 285s or 295s that guy did on 1stgenoffroad.

It may be a week or two before I get these babies mounted. I will follow up with pics and a "does it rub" posting.

New TYC Capa-certified headlamp assemblies helped to freshen things up a bit. Finally, these rims and tires are done.

Nice! I did the same thing on my 2001 Sequoia. I too have been waiting for a long time for this to replace my old and tired stock wheels. Wheels are 16x8 Level 8 MK6 in gray.

Thanks Tim. The reliability of this truck has been the best of any vehicle I have ever owned. 35 vehicles and the "Beast" has been 99.99% since 2010. My wife had a battery cell go bad on her... drama with Interstate... long story. Other than that, just a great preventative maintenance regimen and we are good to go. Since COVID is forcing everyone to hang at home, I'm going to paint clean/ paint correct/ wax her when I have two full days. I may post a before and after... not sure.

I have heard great things about the gen 1 sequoias. i picked up an 03 limited about 2 months ago, 185K on the odometer. This is my first toyota, i have had hondas forever and been wanting a toyota for a few years. I was looking at 4runners but ran across this one, couldn't pass it up. I definitely love it, it's a tank. Already fixed a couple minor things on it, i will be changing all the fluids over the next month. I love how its a blast from the past in terms of simplicity. cars these days are damn difficult to diagnose and repair. My wifes honda odyssey is a plethora of computers and electronics so tinkering with the sequoia is a nice change of pace. I just need to figure out why the heck someone added a 2nd overflow reservoir and tapped a hose from it to the EVAP hose. :unsure::unsure:

Nice paint on that Limited. If you have a bizarre situation with the overflow and evap hose(s)... snap a photo and start a thread. I guarantee you will get input on why it was done in the past. Good luck.

I did, noone chimed in so i decided to just yank it out and replace the EVAP hose and see what happens.

Know what the crazy thing is about my wife's Sequioa tire/rim upgrade? Since I did this about 26 days ago, she has driven less than 100 miles due to the stay at home order. I suppose that I could have held off but back then we did not know how things were going to go. Life happens!

I just had to replace my Geolandars due to sidewall cracking. They were only half used. I was hoping at their full replacement time, I would replace my dreadfully crusty OE wheels with something better, but I guess I'll be waiting another 60k miles. Those TRDs look sweet!

Hey guys! I have a 2017 cdale synapse 105. Currently it has the stock tires on it. I mainly do long rides 30-40 miles and the roads aren’t SUPER bad but there are some rough areas. Im currently running 25s and I’m looking at continental gp 4000 , continental four seasons or gator skins. What would you guys recommend?
I haven’t had a flat yet (knock on wood) and was wondering if I need the gator skins? Sometimes I ride on wet surfaces and I heard gator skins are slippery. I have read some reviews on the gp 4000s as far as sidewall / durability concerns. And was wondering if a good middle ground would be the four seasons.
Thank you!
Doing the cheap upgrades first before new wheels. I’m wondering if new tires would make a big difference. The stock tires are schwalbe luganos. I can run 28 tires but not sure if it would be a drastic change or not.
I think you might be in the wrong forum. Who knows, maybe someone here can help, though.
