I just got a 2012 double cab trd sport. I have a lead on some 2012 fj cruiser rims that I like alot (17 inch gunmetal, 8 hole style, 17x7.5 offset +15), they are take-offs from a dealership. Tires are included in the deal. I'm considering going with the fj cruiser tires, even though they are slightly bigger. I realize it will make my speedometer read a little slow. It looks like several guys run this slightly larger tire here at TW.
I'm wondering about the spare. Would it do damage if I had to use my smaller (265/65r17) spare in case of a flat?? I actually don't know if our spares are full size, I assumed so. Would the larger tire fit in the same place under the truck as the current spare?
I could have all my stock rubber switched over to the fj cruiser rims, but I like the simplicity of putting them directly on, as well as less cost. It would also be easier to sell my stock wheels as they are.
The FJ cruiser rims have an offset of +15 so they'll stick out a bit wider on the truck (which I like) compared to the stock rims.
Thanks in advance for any input on this, especially if I am missing something important!!!
