Not sure what the "rating" is, but I torque mine to 90 pounds. Pretty common torque for aftermarkets.

I don't have the BFDs in 17", but we do have a similar from Konig:

You're welcome to come check them out if you live near me.

The torque is actually related to stud size and not so much the wheels themselves. We recommend torquing the lug nuts 85 ft / lbs. Generally speaking, 12mm studs / lugs such as those on the Tacoma should be torqued to 80 ft / lbs to 90 ft / lbs.

Furthermore, I highly recommend that all lug nuts are tightened gradually and alternately with hand tools in a star pattern, and then finished off by torquing to spec (80 ft / lbs to 90 ft / lbs) in a star patter. I always go over the lug nuts three times with the torque wrench to make sure everything is properly tightened. New wheels and new lug nuts should be re-torqued after 100 miles.

Impact guns should ALWAYS be avoided when tightening down lug nuts on ANY wheels (not just these wheels).

90 ft / lbs is a good number.

No problem! Definitely the first AWD X-Runner that I've ever seen! It's pretty amazing to me!

Glad re-torquing helped. Perhaps the lug nuts had loosened up a hair, or maybe they weren't seated just quite right from the initial installation. I'm glad to hear it helped out.

Congratulations! That is a beautiful new truck!!!

That would be awesome if you matched it up with a set of BFDs. I'm such a huge fan of your Tacoma build, and I'd be honored to provide the wheels for your 4Runner.

I, too, was on the fence between those two colors. I ended up with GG because a local reseller bought these from Dustin for another customer. That customer backed out and I was there to pick them up after I put them up against the truck. I'm really happy I got these over bronze...looks very aggressive without being loud.

Tires are 265/75. Right front rubs on low angle and full lock right turn on the bumper cover. Left rubs on reverse, straight out; I just need to trim the inner part of the bumper cover on both sides....or have my Evan Walker suspension installed.

It's too cold for me to do either.

I plan on making flat TRD centercaps fit these wheels, but that too will be done once the weather starts warming up a little.

Sharp looking truck/rims. Thanks for sharing your information. I'm still on the fence! I really, really like the look of bronze. Would love to see it in that color combo.

I can't seem to find a photo of the BFDs on a dark blue truck in my collection of images, but here is one my customer's trucks with a very similar wheel that we offer in matte bronze on the same color of truck (should help for a color comparison):

BFDs w/275/65/18 Duratracs

Finally got some 32s on the truck. Gunmetal BFDs, 3" iShock MidTravel Coilovers, Firestone RideRite w/Daystar Cradles set at 10PSI. The 275/65/18 Duratrac's clear minus the front mudflaps. I just need to find where it rubs full lock while braking and reversing.






Lovin it so far... need to go put it in mud now for some better shots
