A few Fj wheel questions???...

Are these wheels a Toyota factory product, made by BBS?

I believe they are 17x8...will they fit my Tacoma without spacers, etc?

Will they sit within the wheel well like my stock 16" steelies, or will they sit further out toward the fender flare?

Does Michelin make a LTX M/S2 tire to fit this wheel? A p265/75/17?

Other tire options/recommendations for this wheel...for a truck that sees 99% road/highway use.

TIA...all

1. They're 17x7.5
2. 265/75/17 doesn't exist
3. they should sit pretty close to the same spot that your steelies sit
4. Michelin makes the M/S2's in 265/65/17 and 265/70/17
5. Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza, BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour
6. They're not made by BBS

Thanks.

Wonder why the post would have "brand new in the box"...and be BBS boxes in the post pics?

No problem. I have a set of these sitting in my shop and I'm debating on taking my Tundra TRD's off and put these on. I know for a fact they're 17x7.5, and they're not made by bbs. I will take a pic of the back of these wheels tomorrow at work and post.

Interesting, I don't have any first hand experience on what fits, just the general consensus here on TW.

I also have these exact wheels, and they look great on the Tacoma.

The seller probably went to a local wheel dealer and asked for empty boxes to ship the wheels he has for sale. They just throw them away.

That's exactly what I did when I sold my 17" Sport rims. I went to a local dealer and asked them for 4 17" wheel boxes. They had a small stack that was broken down, ready to go out in the trash. They were happy to give them away.
