FJ Wheels or MB Wheels?

Ok. Below is my truck. I am looking at getting either the gunmetal 6 spoke FJ wheels, the MB Predators, or the MB Gunner 6. The MB's are available through Discount Tire. I would welcome any opinions or pictures of Tacos with any of these choices, particularly if they are in my color- Indigo Ink Pearl.
PS. I am also leaning towards the Toyo Open Country H/Ts. They are fairly aggressive looking, but highway oriented, which is what i need. Any opinions on these, or helpful alternates, is appreciated as well.

FJ wheels hand down down. No fitment issues, backspacing and offset are as perfect as you can get for a lifted Taco. Of course I'm bias, I have a set of the black powder coated FJ wheels.

Thanks for the input so far.

Another question would be will my TPMS sensors fit in the FJ wheels? I keep seeing that the mounting angles are different between the steel and alloy wheels. I know they are pretty useless but it would drive me crazy if that damn dash light was on all the time!

Also, does anybody have experience with the Toyo Open Country H/Ts?

Any pics of tacos with these wheels or tires?

FJ's for sure! Those anthracite wheels are going to be a bitch to find, but if you can get them do it!

I have decided on getting the gunmetal/anthracite FJ wheels. I am currently working with my local dealer to get some. It is a bit difficult as has been mentioned, but the parts manager has been great so far and is working to get them for me. I will update once I get more info.....

Well I picked up my FJ wheels from the dealer on Friday. They had gotten them earlier, but two had been damaged in transit. So they immediately ordered replacements as well as another full set to have on hand. I have them sitting in my garage and am waiting for some time to go get some new tires mounted. I've decided I'll just take the TPMS sensors out of the stock wheels and throw them all in the spare. That way I can run my FJs in the spring through fall and put the stocks back on in winter without worrying about swaping sensors. I'm very excited and I'll post pics once they are on the truck.
