    Finish is durable. The wheels are painted and clear coated with a high quality, automotive grade finish. You should not ever have any issues, but the wheels do have a one-year limited warranty on the finish.

    We do have cleaning and maintenance suggestions and guidelines. I'm working on a write-up with cleaning and waxing recommendations, but feel free to call me if you have any questions you want answered immediately: (951)735-1100 - office or call/text my cell: (714)390-9387. I am always here to answer any questions that I can for the TacomaWorld community.


    Thanks guys! I appreciate everyone's patience and support. The popularity of our wheels has surprised even us, and we're really appreciate of everyone being patient with our backorders.

    16x8" Konig Countersteer Offroad - ETA April 15, 2014 (approximately two weeks)

    I don't think that's nuts at all. The wheels are clear coated just like your car is clear coated. The wheels come into contact with more dirt, grime, debris, etc. than any other part of your car, so it's good maintenance to keep up with washing and waxing them regularly.

    Feel free to PM, e-mail, call or text anytime. :)


    The 16x8" Countersteer Offroad wheels are being unloaded as we speak. As soon as we are able to inspect them and check them into inventory I will start calling everyone on the list in order. The good news is that we received enough to cover everyone who added their name to our list. Thank you very, very much for waiting and for being patient with us.

    I picked up my wheels from Dustin this past weekend and they are really nice. I can't say enough good things about Dustin and his exceptional customer service. Absolutely standard setting.

    I've got my Duratracs ordered and should have everything on by this weekend. I'll post pics of the truck when I get it home.

    Thanks Dustin!!:yay:

    OK! Today I had my new Konig wheels and 265 75 16 Goodyear Duratracs put on and MAN does it look awesome! Way better than I had hoped.

    There was a little bit of rubbing on the front flaps so I removed them for the time being. Eventually (hopefully this Fall) I'm going to do a 3" lift and tha'll take care of that.

    Before... just like a million other Tacomas on the road...
    [​IMG]

    After! Just like, ok maybe a thousand others, still better! Badass in fact!
    [​IMG]

    Close up of the wheels... I love how they have a wider stance than stock.
    [​IMG]

    Looks beefy and feels really solid on the road. There's not much noise difference on the highway over the stock crappy Bridgestones and only a little more noise on the surface roads... I can easily live with that. Now my 4x4 can actually go offroad!

    I'm loving this so far!

    Well I had one little problem this morning... my right rear tire was flat! I filled it back up and took it back to America's Tire. It turns out that there was a tiny little drip of paint inside of the wheel in the hole where the valve goes through. And that was just enough to keep the valve stem from sealing properly, so they scraped the paint off the back and now it's holding tire pressure. So all's well!

    Awesome! I'm glad you're happy Wes! Your truck looks great. Thanks again!

    Agreed! :)

    Uh oh. I'm glad they were able to take care of you. Sometimes this happens, and depending on whether or not TPMS sensors are installed and/or what kind of sensors, they take a little adjusting (either the sensor or the wheel). If that washer or o-ring on the TPMS sensor is misaligned just a hair it can cause a slow leak too (in any wheel). I'm glad it was an easy resolution for you. Thanks again!

    This is just another endorsement for Justin and his company. I don't think I have ever interacted with someone so customer service driven. He really does go above and beyond to assist his customers, setting an example that other vendors should follow.

    I recently picked up a set of 16" Countersteer Offroad rims when they came in last, and he definitely went out of his way to help me out. They look great, and I think I want to get a fifth wheel. Just need to make sure a 16" Konig Countersteer and 265/75/R16 Terra Grappler would fit under the bed without issues.

    So a big thank you to Dustin and FN Wheels for the great deal on my new rims!
